How to play rouletteIt is obvious that if we bet our chips on only one number, we have much less winning chance than if we rely on even or red.
However, the earnings are well above. Here is the list of the payoffs:
Straight bets (place a chip on top of the number): the payoff is 35 to 1.
Split bets (placing a chip on the line that separates two numbers): the payoff is 35 to 1.
Street bet (place a chip in the outside line of the row): the payoff is 11 to 1.
Square bet (into the center of four numbers): the payoff is 8 to 1.
Six Line bet (place a chip in between two rows on the outside line): the payoff is 6 to 1.
Dozen bet (1-12 13-24 25-36): the payoff is 2 to 1.
The 1to1 bets (even/odd, red/black, low/high): the payoff is 1 to 1*
* A payoff of 1 to 1 means you profit 1, ie you double you bet.
Did you noticed the 0 slot? Well you can bet on it as a 1to1 number. However the 0 is not part of any other bet and this is why the casino always wins on the long run:
