Roulette is one of the most popular casino games around and offers a wide range of betting options, which is just one the reasons it is loved by so many. In Roulette, there are two types of bets, inside and outside bets. Outside bets, such as red or black, offer shorter odds, but are more likely to land. Whereas inside bets, like single numbers, offer higher payouts.
- Red or black: pays 1 to 1
- Odd or even: pays 1 to 1
- Columns (for example, 1-12): pays 2 to 1
- Single number / straight up: pays 35 to 1
As with all casino games, the house will always have the edge. In the standard European game, the house edge is 2.70%, while in the American version this rises to 5.26%, due to the double zero. So, where you have the choice, the European variant is usually the way to go.
