How to play Roulette

Roulette is a favourite of players around the globe for its simplicity and variety of betting options. There’s many different forms of Roulette—from the classic versions of European, French and American, to enhanced and unique versions that can only be played online. All Roulette games use the same basic play style that is simple to learn, and easy to understand. However, Roulette also offers a surprising level of depth for the really serious players out there.

The earliest form of Roulette is said to have been invented in a monastery in France in the 17th century. In an attempt to build a perpetual motion machine, a that would revolve endlessly without a need for energy from an outside source. However, the physicist failed, but luckily the Roulette wheel was born. The word Roulette means “small wheel” in French.

To play roulette, you simply need to place your chips on the layout in the betting positions of your choice. The basic bets in roulette can be divided into two main types: outside and inside bets. The outside bets are more likely to win but they have lower payouts. These include dozens and columns, and the even chance bets (red/black, odd/even, and high/low numbers).

The inside bets are the numbers on the central part of the layout. These have much higher payouts but are also more risky. You can bet on one individual number or a group of numbers. Below are the basic roulette bets:

Inside bets

Roulette Straight-up

The other special corner bets around zero pay the same as street bets. These bets are the 0,1,2 corner and 0,2,3 corner and both these bets pay 11-1.

Roulette online Strategies

Roulette Strategies

Roulette is a game of chance, however many players believe that using certain strategies can improve their winning odds. There are lots of interesting strategies to try when playing roulette to make your gaming more fun, including the Martingale system, the James Bond system, and the colours and columns system.
The Martingale system requires you to place small bet on an even-money chance bet, such as red/black. If it wins, you place the same bet again, but if it loses you double your stake. Continue like this and you will always win one betting unit – your original stake. However, you will need a large bank roll and nerves of steel to keep going through a losing streak.

Roulette online Strategies

Another popular strategy is the James Bond system. This strategy requires you to place certain fractions of bets on different numbers, which could mean £70 on high numbers (19-36), £25 on the six-line covering the numbers 13-18, and £5 on Zero. The bet works as long as you bet in these same proportions and gives you an 81.5% chance of winning on each spin.
Finally, the colours and columns system is a classic strategy which requires you to place a bet on a column with 8 red numbers in it and a bet on red. This covers a third of the wheel. If your 2-1 column bet doesn’t win, you still have a 47% chance of winning on red and thereby breaking even.

Advanced roulette bets

Adding some more advanced bets to your roulette play can make your game much more enjoyable and help you develop your own strategies. Advanced bets in roulette include neighbour bets and section bets (also called French bets).

Roulette Neighbour Bets

Neighbour bets cover 5 numbers: the main number and the 2 numbers either side of it on the wheel – its ‘neighbours’. Neighbour bets are always divided between 5 numbers, so a €10 neighbour bet would place €2 on each number. For example ‘zero and the neighbours by 2’ would cost €10 in total, placing €2 on the numbers 0, 3, 26, 32 and 15.

Roulette Section Bets

Section Bets

Sections bets, sometimes called French bets, cover larger sections of the wheel. The section bets are voisins du zero, tiers du cylindre and orphelins (nearly always shortened to ‘voisin’, ‘tier’ and ‘orphans’).

Roulette Voisins du zero

Voisins du zero (voisins)

Voisins is the largest section and covers the area around zero. This is a 9 piece bet and includes 17 numbers in total with the chips placed in following positions on the layout:

  • 2 chips placed on 0,2,3 corner
  • 2 chips placed on 25 to 29 corner
  • 1 chip placed on 4/7 split
  • 1 chip placed on 12/15 split
  • 1 chip placed on 18/21 split
  • 1 chip placed on 19/22 split
  • 1 chip placed on 32/35 split

For example, to place ‘voisins by 5’ would cost €45 in total (€5×9).

Roulette Tiers du cylinder

Tiers du cylinder (tiers)

Tiers is the second-largest section and covers the area opposite zero. This is a 6 piece bet and includes 12 numbers in total with the chips placed in following positions on the layout:

  • 1 chip placed on 5/8 split
  • 1 chip placed on 10/11 split
  • 1 chip placed on 13/16 split
  • 1 chip placed on 23/24 split
  • 1 chip placed on 27/30 split
  • 1 chip placed on 33/36 split

For example, to place ‘tiers by 5’ would cost €30 in total (€5×6).

Roulette Orphelins

Orphelins (Orphans)

Orphans is the smallest section and covers the remaining numbers between tiers and voisins. This is a 5 piece bet and includes 8 numbers in total with the chips placed in following positions on the layout:

  • 1 chip placed on number 1 straight up
  • 1 chip placed on 6/9 split
  • 1 chip placed on 14/17 split
  • 1 chip placed on 17/20 split
  • 1 chip placed on 31/34 split

Roulette Online vs Live Roulette

Online Roulette vs Live Roulette

Playing roulette online is very different from playing roulette in a land-based casino. Firstly, there are no other players to get in the way. This means you can place the exact bets you want without having to push your way to the front of the table. It is easy to select the chip denomination you want to play and there is no possibility of the dealer ever making a mistake. For those on the move, it is even possible to play roulette on your mobile from wherever you are.

Roulette Online vs Live Roulette

Real casinos can also sometimes be intimidating for new players, so online roulette is also ideal for people who want to learn the rules of the game in a more relaxed environment and take their time with their bets.

For those who enjoy the buzz of a live casino but also want the convenience of playing from home, check out the live roulette games available via video streaming. These games let you enjoy the exciting atmosphere of a busy live roulette table, while still enjoying the relaxation of playing from your own living room – the best of both worlds!
