Getting Started with Roulette
Rules and How to Play
To the novice player, roulette might come across as a bit confusing, but in fact it’s quite simple. When joining a table, the seamless software will allow you to pick the value on your chip, which is the amount you would like to bet. You can place bets by picking any number, colour or combination of numbers that you like.
There are two main sections to the roulette board which are important to understand if you want to know how to play roulette. These will help you decide the type of bet you wish to place.
What Are Inside Bets in Roulette?
The inside section of the board allows players to place bets on numbers that are close to each other in terms of layout, or a group of up to six numbers. You can place a bet on one number, for instance 29 which is called ‘straight-up’ or two adjoining numbers which is called a ‘split’.
With a ‘street’ bet, you’re placing a bet on three numbers that connect horizontally, and with a ‘trio’ bet you’re putting your chips on either 0/1/2 or 00/2/3, depending on the variation on the game.
In addition to these, there are also the corner bet (also known as quad bet), where four connecting numbers are covered in one single bet, and the ‘basket’ bet which is a five number bet consisting of 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3.
The last type of bet for the inside section is the ‘double street’ bet, which, like the name suggests, allows you to place a bet on six numbers, effectively placing two ‘street’ bets.
What Are Outside Bets in Roulette?
The outside section offers completely different sets of bets, and these come in pairs – either red or black, odd or even, or high or low – with each bet covering 18 numbers. Players will also be able to make six other bets consisting of 12 numbers, knows as ‘column’ and ‘dozen’ bets.
For each spin of the wheel, there is the table minimum which must be reached for both inside and outside bets – remember, these are independent of each other.
