Place a bet during Live Roulette

Are you ready for your first Live Roulette game? We understand the game might look quite complicated at first. Rest assured: Live Roulette is an easy game to play and, most important, a lot of fun! At the start you need to place a bet on a single number, a combination of numbers or any number between 1 and 36 and 0 and 00. A red or black or odd/even bet is possible as well. Whether you place a bet on 0 or 00 depends on the Roulette game. Some versions only use 0, while others have 00 as well.

European or American Roulette: What is the best choice?

Before you start playing Roulette, it’s necessary to choose between the European and American version. There are several differences between these games, including the fact that the American Roulette wheel has two zeroes on the cylinder. The European Roulette wheel only has one zero. The two zeroes are an advantage, because they increase your winning chances in an (online) casino.
The different numbers of American and European Roulette
Many Roulette players choose American Roulette because of the two zeroes. The wheel during this game has 38 pockets in total, ranging from 0 tot 36. The two zeroes, colored in green, make it complete. 18 of these pockets are black and the other 18 are red. European Roulette works a bit different. It has one zero, which is interesting for every player who likes to see the effect of variance. It has some similarities with American Roulette as well. There are also 36 numbers, of which 18 are red and 18 black. In total there are 37 numbers, since there’s a single zero. You can enjoy American or European Roulette in land-based and online casinos. If you love the authentic live casino experience, then a game of Live Roulette might be perfect for you.

What is the difference between an ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ bet?

During a Roulette game, you can choose between two kinds of bets, namely the ‘inside bet’ and ‘outside bet’. ‘The straight bet’, the ‘split’, the ‘street of three line’, the ‘corner’ and ‘six line’ are part of the ‘inside bets’. We explain their meaning in the following schedule:

Straight Bet Split Street of Three Line Corner Six Line
A bet on a single number. You do so by placing a chip on the box that must correspond with that number A bet on two adjacent numbers. These numbers can be vertically or horizontally. You place this bet by putting a chip on the line between the two adjacent boxes. A bet on a row of three numbers in total, all placed on a single horizontal line. You do so by putting a chip on the outer line of the number on the left of the three numbers. A bet on four numbers. Together they form a square. You place a chip on the cross between these numbers. You place a bet on six adjacent numbers at the same time. For example, if you place a bet on 1-6 you put a chip on the T-junction on the far left, which can be found between the numbers 1 and 4

Outside bets explained

Perhaps you like to test your luck with an outside bet instead of an inside bet. In that case you place a bet on the boxes around the inner field, containing the numbers 1 to 36. In total there are five types of ‘outside bets’, namely Dozen, Column, Red or Black, Odd or Even and High or Low. Use the following scheme to understand their meaning:

Dozen Column Red or Black Odd or even High or Low
