How to Play Online Roulette

Roulette is a traditional casino game which involves learning exactly where to place your bets on the roulette board. The idea is to guess the outcome of where the ball will land after it has stopped spinning around the roulette wheel. Picking up this exciting game is quite simple.

Roulette Basics

There are various sections around the roulette wheel, divided by numbers which are either red or black, or the green zero. The idea is to carefully place your chips on the table. Players will win a prize if the ball lands on a position that matches an area of the table which you placed a bet on. Players must remember that with roulette, how to play is quite easy, it’s just learning the different odds/bet types.

There are plenty of different betting options available with roulette. The table is split into rows and columns and you can also place a bet on which section the ball may stop in, for example the first 12 numbers (1-12), the middle section of 12 numbers (13-24) or the last 12 numbers (25-36). Players can also bet that the outcome will be between 1-18 or 19-36.

There are two different basic types of bets in roulette, which include either ‘Inside bets’ (where a player places a bet anywhere on the internal section of the betting table) or ‘Outside bets’ (where a player can place a bet on the betting options that are located around the outside of the roulette board).

How to Play Roulette as a Beginner

Straight up BetThis is one of the simplest bets. Players can bet on one single number coming out. (35:1)
Split BetPlace your chips so that the chip is split between two numbers that are side by side. There are clear lines for players to be able to do this. (17:1)
Street BetQuite similar to the split bet, but this allows players to bet on three separate numbers at the same time, such as the outcome being 1, 2 or 3. Place the chip(s) on the outside of the table precisely on the line of numbers that you want to bet on, in this case it would be on the ‘outside’ of the number 1. (11:1)
Square BetTo place this bet, put the chip on the corner, at the junction of numbers zero and 3. Players will be awarded a prize if the ball lands on 0, 1, 2 or 3. (8:1)
Corner BetYou can cover four numbers at once by placing the chip at the junction where four numbers meet. (8:1)

The remaining bets/odds are as follows: Line bet 5:1, Column/Dozen 2:1 and then for guessing 1-18/19-36/Red Black/Even Odd, the house will pay 1:1.
