Roulette is one of the most popular casino games in the world. It’s a game based solely on luck and offers players the chance to win big by correctly guessing which number the ball will land in when the wheel stops spinning. But despite being a simple game, there are many different betting options that offer players different odds of winning and payouts for their bets. These are divided into two main categories: inside and outside bets. The roulette wheel consists of a solid, slightly convex wooden disc with metal separators called frets. Thirty-six of these compartments, painted alternately red and black, are numbered nonconsecutively from 1 to 36. On European wheels, a 37th compartment, painted green, carries the sign 0. On American wheels, there are also two green pockets, marked 0 and 00. After each player sets their bets, the dealer spins the wheel and drops a ball that moves through the different numbered sectors. Once the ball lands, the player who placed their bet on that sector wins. Bets are divided into three categories: inside bets, outside bets and announced bets (Les Voisins du Zero, Les Orphelins and Le Tiers Du Cylindre). Inside bets are bets on individual numbers. These are typically the smallest bets and have the highest chances of winning. These bets can be made on single numbers, a range of numbers or groups of numbers based on their position on the table. There are a variety of options for inside bets including straight, split, corner and street bets. Outside bets are bets on groups of numbers or specific sections of the wheel. These bets have lower odds of winning but can offer higher payouts than other bets. The payouts for outside bets vary depending on the type of bet and the section of the wheel they are placed in. The Dozens Bet (also known as douzaine in French) is a bet that the winning number will be in either the first, second or third dozen on the layout. This bet pays out 2-1. The Odd or Even Bet is similar, except that you’re wagering that the winning number will be odd or even — not in the 0 or 00 pocket, which give the house an edge. This bet pays out 1:1.
