Roulette Part 3: Inside Bets...


Welcome to the living large world inside betting. Remember, when playing roulette online, or even in a flesh and blood casino, there are, in addition to the inside bets, five outside bets with decent odds and low pay out, i.e.’ the safe bets’. An inside bet on the other hand involves low odds and relatively high (though far from true) pay out. Inside bets involve betting on a single number or a combination of numbers.


Again, always bear in mind the information following is generic and that rules for inside betting in online roulette can vary from one online casino to the next. To avoid potentially embarrassing or frustrating situations, find out what a roulette table’s pay out is on a case by case basis. The different types of inside bets are described below, and are ordered from most to least likely to lose, i.e. from highest to lowest pay out. Note that free online roulette is probably the best way to familiarize your self with the game before playing a money game.


One of the most capricious things you can do at an online casino is click over to the roulette table and bet straight-up. This places a bet on a single number, like 22, 12, or 00. It does not really matter which number you choose in a straight-up bet. At a 2.5% chance of success, all of them are long shots. However, if you do manage an extreme dose of luck the casino will reward you at 35 to 1, i.e. $35 for every $1 bet.


If you want to double your chance of success, and reduce the pay out to 17 to 1, you can opt for the split bet. Here you bet on any two adjacent numbers by placing your chips, or clicking on the line between the two numbers on the grid. If either of the numbers in your split bet is chosen by the marble your wager succeeds.


A street bet has even better chances of success than either the straight-up or the split bet. Note how the number grid is laid out in three columns of 12 and four rows of three (with the 0 and 00 at the end). A street bet covers any three numbers in the same row. You make this bet by placing your chips just outside the grid, next to the row upon which you wish to bet. Your odds here are about 8% and at most online casinos the pay out will hover around 11 to 1.


The corner bet is paid out at 8 to 1, and allows you to bet on four numbers. The four numbers must form a square on the grid. Make a corner bet by placing your token at any four-way intersection. Your odds here finally reach the double digits at 10.5%.


The five-number bet is kind of magical. On the entire online roulette table there is only one five-number bet, and you make it by placing your tokens at the intersection of 0, 1, and the first column of twelve. Should the wheel turn up a 0, 00, 1, 2, or 3 (a 13% chance), the casino will pay out around 6 to 1. 


Finally there is the six-number bet, a.k.a. the ‘line bet’. You can probably by now guess how this bet works. This is a bet on any two adjoining rows. The online roulette table should have lines outside the grid at the row intersections. That is where the tokens go for a six-number bet. Of all the inside bets, this is the least richly rewarded at 5 to 1. With only a 13% chance of success, this bet is a lot of risk for little reward.
