What is roulette?

Casino roulette is a table game with a numbered roulette wheel and a betting grid. There are red and black pockets numbered up to 36 around the perimeter of the wheel. The zero pocket is green. The betting grid features three vertical and twelve horizontal columns.

Place your virtual chip by clicking on where you would like to place your bet. Once you’ve placed your bet, the wheel is spun, the ball is thrown in from the opposite direction and the excitement begins. When the wheel starts to slow down, the ball will land in a pocket. The corresponding number on the betting grid wins.  

How to play roulette

The rules of online roulette are simple. You bet on the number you think the ball is going to land in and if you guess correctly, you win.

However, you don’t just have to bet on one number. Create even more excitement by covering multiple numbers of different bet types in one round. Remember that although you have a higher chance of winning if you bet on a group of numbers, the more you bet on, the lower the payout. Likewise, the fewer numbers you choose, the less chance you have of winning but if the ball does land on your number, the payout will be much higher.

Types of bet in roulette

There are two types of bets across all games - inside bets and outside bets.

Inside Bet

You’ll place your inside bets directly into the betting grid – hence the name. Inside bets cover:

  • Straight-up bet – cover a single number with your chip to place a straight-up bet. Covering the single winning number pays out 35:1.
  • Split – place your chips on the line between two numbers to cover both with your bet. A split bet pays out at 17:1.
  • Corners – cover the intersection between four numbers to bet on all four with one chip. If one of those four numbers come up, the bet pays out 8:1.
  • Streets - placing your chips at the end of a betting grid row means you’ll win if one number in that row will come up. Streets pay out 11:1.

Outside bets

You’ll find outside bets around the edges of the betting grid. The following are all forms of outside bet:

  • Even money bets – red or black, odd or even etc. These bets do not cover 0 and 00. The odds for even money bets are 1:1.
  • Columns – bet on one or more of the three betting grid columns to cover every number in that column. These bets pay out at 2:1.
  • Dozens – a dozen bet lets you cover the first, second or third twelve numbers on the betting grid. The odds for dozens are 2:1.

You can also make multiple bets in the same game, which can really add to the fun. You could, for example, do an inside and an outside bet at the same time.

Some games also offer call bets and neighbor bets - which are based on the position of the numbers on the wheel, not the table.

The general rules for playing roulette apply to all games, but there are various online versions to choose from, each with a slight variation.

Different types of roulette on All Slots Casino

European Roulette Gold: In this game you’re allowed call bets and neighbor bets. You can play these alongside a variation of inside and outside bets. 

French Roulette: Call bets and neighbor bets can also be used in this game. This version of roulette has an extra rule that the other games don’t - La Partage. If you make an even-money bet and the ball lands on 0, you'll only lose half.

American Roulette: American roulette tables are the only ones that have an extra number – 00. Like the 0, this is also green. 

Premier Roulette Diamond Edition: Premier Roulette is similar to European Roulette, but comes with special features and advanced graphics. This includes the option to choose your roulette wheel and a variety of colours and designs available for the tables to personalise your game and ramp up your enjoyment.

Multi-Wheel European Roulette Gold: Spin up to eight roulette wheels at the same time for eight times the fun.  

Multi-Player Roulette: On European Roulette, this enables up to five people to play together.

Roulette Royale: This online roulette has a continuously growing progressive jackpot. Hit the same number five times in a row to win.
