Types of Roulette

There are two common types: European Roulette and American Roulette. The European model is made up of a single zero, in addition to counting from 1 to 36. The American model is also from 1 to 36, but contains a zero and a double zero.

The objective of the game is to bet on whether the ball will fall in a certain type of color or number, or in certain combinations of numbers, as we will explain below.

Roulette bet types

There are two types of bets:
- Internal Bets: bet on the 37 or 38 possible numbers on the roulette table.
- External Bets: bet on any of the other options available at the table, except for the numbers (internal bets).

Internal bet types

- Simple / Direct: bet on a specific number.
- Divided / Split:
bet on two numbers that are in sequence on the table, either vertically or horizontally. Example: 7 and 10 or 8 and 9.
- Triple / Street: bet on three consecutive numbers on the table, which are in a horizontal line. Example: 10, 11 and 12.
- Square / Corner: bet on numbers that form a “square”, in the 2x2 format on the table. Example: one, two, four and five (note that they form a square).
- Six Lines / Double Street: bet that the ball will fall in a sequence of six numbers, which form two horizontal lines on the table. Example: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.
- Trio:
bet on a sequence of three numbers that “touch” each other on the table. In this case, 0 (zero) is included in the bet. In American roulette it can be, for example: double zero, two and three. In European roulette, one of the options would be zero, one and two, for example.
- First four: this bet can only be made on European roulette, and consists of the ball falling to zero, one, two or three, for your bet to be a winner.
- Basket: this type of bet is exclusive to American roulette, and to win it the ball will have to fall in the first five numbers: zero, double zero, one, two or three.

Types of external bets

- Low Bet: the ball must fall in a number that is from 1 to 18.
- High Bet:
the ball must fall in a number that is from 19 to 36.
- Red / Black bet: bet that the ball will fall in a specific color, be it red or black.
- Odd / Even Bet: betting whether the ball will land on any number that is even or odd. Zero and double zero are not options in this bet.
- Dozen Bet: bet that the ball will fall in blocks of numbers that make up a dozen, be it from 1 to 12, 13 to 24 or 25 to 36.
- Column bet: bet that the ball will fall into one of the table's columns, which form 12 numbers.
- Snake Bet: In this bet, the ball must fall in some of these numbers: 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32 and 34.
