Know Your Roulette Odds

Whether you fancy an online roulette game, or you want the immersive live casino experience, the betting options are the same. But do you know what the odds of each bet are? Well, don’t worry, as we’ve prepared a visual guide to roulette odds and their payouts, right here.

The rules of roulette are quite simple. You have the wheel with red and black slots each with a number from 1 to 36. And depending on whether you’re playing on European or American roulette, you also have one or two green zero slots. Apart from the wheel, you have the roulette table which also features the numbers and several additional sectors on which you can place your bets. After all participants have placed their bets on the table, the dealer will spin the wheel and will throw in a small ball. The number on which the ball lands is the winning number. Pretty straight forward, right? Sure, but there are a few tricks you need to learn if you want to enjoy the game longer.

Calculating the odds isn’t hard at all if you know these two steps. Start off by dividing the number 36 by the total number of squares that your bet covers. After that, subtract one from that result and you will get the payout rate of the bet.

For example, a straight-up bet will cover one number only, so you should divide 36 by 1 to get 36. Then you subtract 1 to get 35. This way you know that the payout rate for a straight-up bet is 35:1. So if you bet €10 on a straight-up bet then your win will be €350.

The Snake Bet

The inside and outside bets are the main ones but there’s another type of bet that is considered to be an outside bet. This is the ‘snake’ bet and is only available in certain roulette variations. The snake bet covers the red numbers 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32 and 34, creating the shape of a snake.

Announced Bets

The announced bets are special betting combinations most commonly featured in European Roulette. Players will inform the dealer verbally on their preferred numbers while putting the money on the table. This mustn’t be confused with the called bet. When a player makes a called bet, they aren’t required to place chips on the betting table. This practice is very rare and illegal in many countries.
