The roulette table can look intimidating to a new roulette player - but it is actually a simple and easy to learn game. Read on and learn more about how and where to place different roulette bets.

The Different Roulette Bets

Let's have a closer look at what kind of roulette bets there are, how and where they are placed on the roulette table. You will make your roulette bet(s) by placing chips on (or between) numbers on the roulette table. If you want to bet on more than one number it's possible to place chips on the border between two numbers, thereby splitting the bet on each number.

The illustration below show the different kinds of roulette bets there are on a European roulette table.

Note the different numbers - I will explain each illustrated roulette bet to the right:

Roulette Bets Explained By

  1. Chip number one is placed on 'PASSE' - that is a bet on the last 18 numbers (number 19 to 36).
  2. PAIR - A bet on an even number. Note that the opposite betting spot is the IMPAIR (odd numbers).
  3. Black - as opposed to Red.
  4. A bet on the first third of the numbers - number 1 to 12.
  5. This chip is placed on the border - so this is a bet on the second and third thirds of the numbers. So this bet covers the numbers 12 to 36. This is a bet placed with 50% of the chips value on each third.
  6. Left column bet - is a bet on all the numbers in the column above the chip.
  7. Middle and left column bet - with 50% of the chips value on each column.
  8. A bet on six numbers - A bet on all the numbers in the two rows where the chip is placed on the border line. On this illustration the bet is placed on the numbers: 10-11-12-13-14-15.
  9. Four number bet - One of the numbers is zero - so this is a bet on 0-1-2-3.
  10. Four Number Bet in a Quadrant - Also called 'Carré' - here a bet on 5-6-7-8.
  11. Three Numbers Next to Each Other - Here the bet is placed on 25-26-27.
  12. Two numbers next to each other - Also called 'a cheval' - here a bet on 20-21.
  13. A Bet on a Single Number - also called 'en plein' - here a bet on 29.
  14. A bet on zero - 'en plein' - similar to a bet on any other single number.
