Understanding Roulette

Understanding the Different Types of Roulette Betting: It is a lot of fun to bet on roulette and you have many possibilities for what kind of bets to make. It doesn't take much study to understand how bets work, but knowing a little more about them before you start can bring you a better gaming experience. It is important that you understand the odds of the different bets so that you are aware of your chances of winning.

How to Bet on Roulette

    When reading about roulette bets you can get a little confused by the names. Do not worry! As soon as you sit down at a roulette table, its layout makes it very clear what an internal bet and a corner bet are. Once you know the minimum bet limits at the table, you can start placing your bets. It is now up to you how many numbers and combinations you want to mark with your chips. More bets cost more money but you are also more likely to win something. When bets have been placed, the dealer or computer stops the wheel and drops the ball in one of the numbers.

Equal Money Bets (Even Bets)

    Equal money bets are those that pay equal money i.e. from 1 to 1. This means that if you bet $ 5 and your bet wins, you get your money back plus an additional $ 5. The most common equal money bets are Red or Black, Even or Odd, High or Low. These bets are popular and give you a fair chance of actually winning something.

Internal and External Bets

    All bets placed on numbers marked inside the grid on the roulette table are called internal bets. External bets are placed outside the grid and are usually placed in Red or Black.

Betting on many Numbers at once

    When you play many numbers at once, you will not find the same choices in American and European roulette. For example, if you want to place a five-number bet that includes 0,00,1,2 and 3 this obviously belongs to an American game. Square Bet is a bet where you can choose any four numbers regardless of your position at the table. This bet has better payouts than the equal bet but it can also cost more, depending on the casino you play at.

Special Rules Bets

When playing roulette you should know that there are some special rules that can affect your bets. If you play with the En Prison rule, you can play your bet again if the ball lands at zero. This increases your odds and makes the game more fun and exciting, so try to find roulette games with these or other beneficial roulette rules.
