Rules of Roulette

If you are looking for roulette rules, you've came to the right place. Though it might seem that roulette is a difficult game to play, it is quite simple and it really does not need excessive amounts of time to learn it.

There is only a few different roulette types, all of them have small tweaks in rules. Here you will find the rules that all roulette games have in common and the biggest differences between roulette-games.

All roulette tables have almost identical layout. All roulettes have only black and red colors in addition to zero and double zero-fields that are usually green. Below you will see the layouts of all three roulette types.

French | European | American

Roulette bets

There is only two types of bets; Inside bets and outside bets. The inside bets are those you place on a single number, two, three, four, and six numbers. Dozen and column bets as well as low and high number groups and color bets are considered to be outside bets. Below you will see the payouts of all the possible bets:

  • Single number bet, straight-up bet: Pays 35:1
  • Two number bet, split bet: Pays 17:1
  • Three numbers bet, street bet: Pays 11:1
  • Four numbers bet, corner bet: Pays 8:1
  • Six numbers bet: Pays 5:1
  • Dozen or column bet: Pays 2:1
  • Low (19-36) / High (1-18) numbers: Pays 1:1

The biggest difference is between European roulettes (including the French roulette) and American roulette. The American roulette has actually two different zeros, a single zero and a double zero, this is also why American roulette is not as good for the player as the French and European roulette are. In American roulette there are 38 numbers in total while in European and French roulette you have only 37, although it might not seem as much, it has a big effect. The house has almost double the advantage at a double-zero roulette (5.26%) compared to single-zero roulette (2.7%).
