How To Play Live Roulette

Roulette is the simplest table game available in our casino. This game of chance has a betting layout with the numbers 0-36 (including a 00). The croupier will let you know when it’s time to place your bets, and a timer will make it clear how long you have to do so. Then, the croupier will spin a ball around a wheel with all 38 digits, and the ball will land on one winning number. If you bet that number, you win.

 

Roulette Bets

All roulette bets can be classified as inside or outside bets. The two categories vary in terms of risk vs. rewards, and consequently appeal to different types of players. Inside bets are inherently riskier and offer higher payouts as a result. Outside bets, on the other hand, are more conservative, offering modest payouts to complement the low risk.

Betting on single numbers, or groups of numbers up to a maximum of six, constitute the inside bets. An easy way to think of inside bets has to do with the placement; you’re putting your casino chips inside the betting rectangle. Betting on large groups of numbers (12-18) constitute the outside bets. You’ll find the placement for these on the outside of the betting rectangle. Let’s take a look at the types of bets you can make, including their payouts and win percentage.

 

Inside Bets

Straight Bet

35:1
Betting on a single number garners the highest payout in roulette. You can make up to $17,500 if you win a Straight bet on max. But these bets also have the lowest chance of winning (2.63%).

 

Split Bet

17:1
You can spread out the risk by opting for a Split bet instead of a Straight bet. This is a bet on two numbers that are side by side on the layout. To do this, put a chip on the line that divides two numbers and it will split the bet between them, decreasing the risk and the payout ratio. The chance of winning jumps to 5.26%.

 

Street

11:1
Street bets include three neighboring numbers that form a row on the betting layout. To make a Street bet, place the chip on the external line at the end of the row. You have a 7.89% chance of winning any given Street bet.

 

Corner

8:1
Four numbers that form a square can all be covered by one chip through a Corner bet. Simply put the chip in the inner corner, and it will cover all four numbers. This bet gives you a 10.53% chance of winning.

 

Top Line

6:1
The Top Line bet is available only with American Roulette. This five-number wager includes the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2, and 3. This bet has a 13.16% win rate.

 

Line
5:1
The inside bet with the lowest payout and least risk is the Line bet, which includes six numbers. Line bets are essentially two Street bets side by side, which you can bet on with a single chip. The win rate for Line bets is 15.79%.

 

Outside Bets

Reds/Blacks

1:1
For close to a 50% chance of winning (47.37% to be exact), bet on all the red or black numbers on the board by using the red or black diamond icons on the betting layout. These 18-number bets pay even-money.

 

Evens/Odds

1:1
Alternatively, you can bet on all the Even or Odd numbers on the board for the same payout and win percentage.

Lows/Highs

1:1
Another way to bet on almost half of the wheel is to bet on Lows (numbers 1-18) or Highs (numbers 19-36). All the even-money bets come with a 47.37% win rate with Roulette.

 

Dozen

2:1
For double the payback that you’d get from the even-money outside bets, you can bet on the 1st 12 numbers, the 2nd 12 numbers or the 3rd 12 numbers. The win rate drops down to 31.58%, but you’d get bigger payouts.

 

Columns

2:1
The betting layout comprises three columns of numbers. For a 2:1 payout, you can bet on any of the three columns. They contain 12 numbers each and have the same win rate as the Dozen bets.

 

Live Roulette Buttons

  • Clear Bets: Removes all bets you placed on the betting layout.
  • Rebet: Replicates the bet you placed in the previous round, including number(s) and amount.
  • Auto Rebet: Keeps betting the same numbers and amount until you re-click the “Auto Rebet” button or the “Clear Bets” button.
  • Tipping: To tip the Dealer, place a chip on the tipping slot. The Dealer will thank you by name, addressing you through the camera.

 

Technical Interruptions

  • Any rounds that are misdealt by the Dealer or encounter technical problems are void. Your bet will be returned to you.
  • If you lose your connection after placing a bet, the bet will remain on the table. You’ll win or lose based on the result of the round.
