LIVE DEALER ROULETTE BETTING STRATEGIES

Live Roulette is a fairly easy game to play, but in order to get the most fun out of your game, it is important to understand the betting and payout process. This starts with learning about the layout of the roulette table, what each numbered or lettered box stands for, which boxes on the table have the largest payouts, and which betting options give you more "bang for your buck".

The basic layout of the roulette table contains 49 boxes: one of each number colored red, black, or green to match the color of that number on the wheel. There are also eleven boxes around the perimeter for special bets, such as Red or Black, Even or Odd, or High or Low. Any bets placed on a specific number are called “inside bets”, and all other bets are called “outside bets”.

Sample of Table Layout for Roulette

Each bet has its own payout. The outside bets are normally even money for Even/Odd, Red/Black, or High/Low and pay two to one for column or dozen bets.  The inside bets range from five to one on a six number bet to thirty-five to one on a straight bet. Keep in mind that no matter what you do, the house edge is roughly 2.7% for single-zero roulette or 5.26% for the double-zero wheel.

One thing to consider is that at most tables you are allowed to split your inside bets to meet the table minimum, but you can’t split your outside bets. In other words, at a $5.00 table, you can place several $1.00, $2.00, or $3.00 inside bets, just as long as these bets total the $5.00 minimum or more. If you want to place a bet on Even and Odd, then each bet much be at least $5.00, or $5.00 on the Even and $5.00 on the Odd.

There are two types of bets that you can make at the roulette table, combination bets and straight bets. Combination bets are bets where the chip is on the line between the marked boxes to include more than one box in the bet. They have different odds than straight bets.

There is very little that you can do to change the house edge. It will always be around 2.7% or 5.26%, depending on whether or not the wheel has a double zero.

Roulette is a random game of chance. The spins are not affected by anything that happened earlier in the game. Each spin is independent, much like the toss of a coin. Each time that the dealer drops a ball onto the roulette wheel, the chances of ending up on any given number are exactly the same – 36 to 1 on a single zero wheel and 37 to 1 on a double-zero wheel.
