Inside bets refer to specific numbers and sets of numbers on the inside of the roulette betting table. They have a lower chance of winning than outside bets, but this is balanced by a larger payout. The house edge on inside bets is the same as on outside bets. There are a few different bets you can make.

Straight-up bets apply to the zero or double-zero in European and American roulette, respectively.

When you opt for a straight-up bet, you must place your chips at the center of the box number that you have picked, without going beyond the lines.

The payout will be 35:1 as you are betting on one specific number. This is also called a single-number bet.

Two straight-up bets in one. You wager on two numbers next to each other instead of just one ( for ex: 1|2, 8|9, 13|14, 20|21, 25|26, 33|36).

To go for this bet, place your chips on the line that divides your chosen adjacent numbers (horizontally or vertically). If the ball lands on one of the two numbers, you win!

The payout will be 17:1 as you are betting on two adjacent numbers.

A wager on three numbers appearing in a row (for example: (1, 2, 3), ( 4, 5, 6), ( 7, 8, 9 )… (34, 35,36)). Sometimes, these are called “trio bets” or “steam bets”.

If the ball lands on any number within the trio, you win. Place your chips on the furthest line next to the first number of a row.

For example, if you want to bet on 19, 20, and 21, you will place the chips on the outer line bordering 19.

The payout will be 11:1 as you are betting on a row of three numbers (i.e. 19, 20, 21).

Corer or also known as the “four-number bet” or “square bet”.

This bet is similar to the split bet. But instead of two numbers, you’re betting that one of four adjoining numbers forms a square layout (for example 16-17-19-20).

You can place a Roulette corner bet by positioning your chip(s) at the center point where the four touching numbers intersect each other.

If the ball hits a number that is part of your four-digit combination you win.

The payout will be 8:1 as you are betting on four numbers.

Is an American roulette exclusive bet. It is a bet on the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2, and 3. The ball must land on one of these to win. This bet pays 6:1; however, it is the only bet with a higher than normal house edge (7.9%), and should probably be avoided during play.

Basket (First four-bet) Roulette Bet - is a roulette bet that is exclusive to a European wheel. The bet includes wagering on 0, 1, 2, and 3. This pays 6:1.

Line ( Six Line Bet or Double Street Bet) Roulette Bet has similarities to the street bet since it also covers lines of numbers as these are presented on the board, but instead of one line of three numbers, you can bet on two lines and cover six numbers in total.

This bet is made by placing chips at the intersection between the two lines along the side of the board. If any of these numbers hit, then the pay off is 5:1

These are bets made on the perimeter of the roulette table. They are made on groups of numbers or colors instead of a specific number.

A roulette table contains 18 red and 18 black pockets. You’re making a bet on whether a red number or a black number will win. These two bets cover all numbers that have pockets of the appropriate color on the roulette wheel. All you need to do is put your chips in the middle of the red or the black box on the table.

This bet pays out at even odds 1:1 (it gives you twice the amount of your wager.) if the ball lands on the roulette color you choose. But because of the 0 or 00 on the wheel – neither of which are black OR red – your odds of winning are less than 50/50 (if, however, the ball lands on a 0 or 00 which has green pockets, all red and black wagers will lose).

This is marked as “Even” and “Odd” on the table. If you decide to bet on the Odd numbers, you need to place your chip(s) on the box marked ‘ODD’ next to the 19-36 box at the bottom right of the table.

This bet pays out at even odds (1:1) if you correctly call the ball landing on odd or even. Keep in mind that 0 and 00 are not part of either even or odd. The numbers on the roulette table are divided into two sections:

- Low numbers (1 to 18)
- High numbers (19 to 36)

You’re betting on whether the number selected will fall within 1-18 (low) or 19-36 (high). Just like in the Even / Odd roulette bet the 0 (00) is not part of either low or high. The payout will be even odds (1:1) if the ball lands on 1-18 and you’ve bet low, or if the ball lands on 19-36 and you’ve bet high.

The numbers on a roulette layout are organized into three columns of 12 numbers each.

- 1st column – 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31, 34
- 2nd column – 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29, 32, 35
- 3rd column – 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36

Player wagers bet by placing a chip at the bottom of the column where there is a box that says 2 to 1. This kind of bet will double your money with an odds of 2:1.

Dozen Roulette Bet - essentially the same bet as a column bet since you bet on 12 numbers but in order:

- 1st 12 – This covers the ball landing on numbers 1-12
- 2nd 12 – This covers the ball landing on numbers 13-24
- 3rd 12 – This covers the ball landing on numbers 25-36

To place a dozen bets, set your chips on any of the boxes marked “1st 12” “2nd 12” or “3rd 12”. The payout will be 2:1 if you successfully bet on the roulette ball landing on either the first dozen (1-12), second dozen (13-24), or third dozen (25-36).

Snake Roulette Bet - A wager that covers the numbers 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32 and 34.

As you can see, it’s called the snake bet because when you connect the numbers on the table you’ve bet on, it forms an “S” shape like a snake. There are no split bets involved in the snake bet and typically you should ensure that all 12 of the straight number bets are of the same unit.

Each number should have the same value chip placed on it to create a proper snake bet, so that regardless of which number wins (if any of them do), your return will be the same.

This is a special roulette bet, not available at all casinos.
