What Are the Different Bets on Roulette?

Roulette is a casino game with many betting combinations. These bets offer different odds for winning and different payouts.

The wheel consists of a solid, slightly convex disk with thirty-six compartments alternately painted red and black, with a green section numbered 0. On American wheels there are two additional green sections labelled 0 and 00. Players place chips on a betting mat, the precise placement of the chips indicating the bet being made.


There are a number of different betting options available to players on roullete. The most popular is on the Dozens, which covers 12 numbers and pays 2-1 if the player makes the right prediction. Other outside bets include Voisins du Zero (neighbors of the zero, for 17 numbers on the wheel closest to it), Jeu Zero and Le Tiers Du Cylindre, which cover different areas on the roulette wheel. These bets pay out at odds of 2-1, which are lower than inside bets.
