Roulette is a table game. Next to the wheel will be a felt table with a colorful grid representing all of the possible bets. There is an individual square on the board representing each possible number (and color) along with some other betting options. If you place your chips on a number (in that square), you are betting on that number. You can also bet on more than one number at a time through special placement of your bets (if you bet on the line between 1 and 2, you are betting on both numbers). The other positions are called “outside” bets. They represent ranges of bets. You can bet that a red will come up, or an even number, or one of the first twelve numbers (1-12), etc.
The more precise your pick, the more you will win. For instance, if you bet $10 that 23 will win and it does, you will win $350. If you bet $10 that a red number will win, you will win only $10. You also have the opportunity to bet on more than one number with a single bet. If you place your chip on the line between two numbers, you are betting on both and will win if either one of them comes up. Below are a list of the possible bets along with the payout (how much you will win if your choice wins).
Single Number Bet – Pays 35 times your bet
Two Number Bet – Pays 17 times your bet
Three Number Bet – Pays 11 times your bet
Four Number Bet – Pays 8 times your bet
Five Number Bet – Pays 6 times your bet
Six Number Bet – Pays 5 times your bet
Twelve Number Bet (1-12, 13-24, or 25-35) – Pays 2 times your bet (except columns which pay 2 times your bet).
Eighteen Number Bet (Red, Black, Odd, Even, 1st 18, or 2nd 18) – Pays 1 times your bet.
You are allowed to place as many bets as you like in each spin. If you wanted to bet on Red, 23, Odd, and 13-24, you could do so. You would be paid individually for each bet that wins.
