The Different Outside Roulette Bets

Saturday, September 25, 2010

The easiest kinds of bet to win at roulette are called outside bets, they are one of two different types of bets. Outside bets don’t win very much money but they win far more frequently There are several different outside bets many of which give nearly a 50% chance of winning. Outside bets are very popular with players who like to play carefully. If you like small incremental gains than making outside bets may be the best course of action. Here are the outside bets, for the next time you play online roulette.

Black, red, high, low, odd, even, first, second, third dozen, and column bets, are the several types of outside bets. Betting red or black is to bet money that the ball will land on the color black or the color red, the payout is 1:1 which means that if you bet five chips on black and win you will win five chips; this bet offers a near 50% win percentage. Another bet that has close to 50/50 odds of winning are the bets high and low.

The top half of the roulette wheel has the numbers 19-36 and the bottom half 1-18, you can bet that the ball will land on either the high numbers or the low numbers, for example if you bet low and the ball lands on the number 11 you win 1:1. It is also possible to bet on dozens of numbers either 1-12, 13-24, or 25-36, if you want to bet on the first dozen the bet is called First Dozen, same is true for the second dozen and the third dozen, this bet pays double your bet. Column bets are similar to dozen bets, you are betting on 12 numbers but not consecutive 12 numbers. Along with a roulette wheel there is also a roulette table, on this table is a map of each number, these numbers are within three different columns. By making a Column Bet you are betting that the ball will land on a number within your column, this bet also pays 2:1.
