Bets in European Roulette You May Not Have Known Exist
European roulette is a game that almost everyone knows how to play on a very superficial level. What we mean by that is that people tend to know the basics of the outside bets, and they might know a little about a straight-up bet on a single number, but that’s really about it. What we want to do for you here is give you a more in-depth look at the bets available in this game so that you have more options when you come up to the table to play.
Let’s start with a straight-up bet. This is a bet on a single number that wins at a rate of 35:1. If you want to break up a bet like this across two different numbers, then you can make a split bet. You make this bet by placing your chips on the line between two adjacent numbers without it touching either of the corners. This bet pays at 17:1, but it doubles your chances of winning by placing a wager on two numbers instead of one. Notice that the payout rate automatically adjusts itself so that you’ll have the same house advantage with either of these wagers. This goes for the next three bets we’re going to discuss as well.
The grid of numbers is referred to by streets that go horizontal by sets of three and columns that go vertical by sets of 12. A street bet is a bet on a set of three numbers on a street, and it pays out at 11:1. You make this bet by putting your chips on the outside line of a street much like you would for a split bet except they’re only halfway on a single number.
A corner bet is a wager on four numbers that all come together at one point. You make this bet by putting your chips on that center corner between four numbers, and it pays at 8:1. Finally we have the double street bet which is a bet on two consecutive streets or six numbers total. You place this bet by putting your chips on the outside corner of two streets. It gives a payout of 5:1 when you win. Overall, you can mix and match these atypical bets to come up with a fun strategy that’s personalized for your own risk tolerance.
