Roulette layouts do not vary in bets permitted, odds offered and percentages
against the player so the following text covers all the common bets permitted
on just about any layout.
Straight Bet (or SingleNumber Bet):
The player places the chips squarely on one number on the layout, making
certain that the chips do not touch any of the lines enclosing the number.
This indicates that the player is betting that number to win. Since there
are 36 numbers on the wheel, plus the signs 0 and 00, making a total of
38, the correct odds are 37 to 1. The bank pays off 35 to 1 and consequently
has the advantage of 0 and 00. In terms of a percentage this is 2/38 of
100, or 5 5/19%.
The signs 0 and 00:
These can be played in the same fashion as any straight or singlenumber
bet. The bank's favorable percentage is the same as on a straight bet
(5 5/19%).
Split bet or twonumber bet:
The player places the chips directly on any line separating any two numbers.
If the winning number is one of the two wagered on, the player wins.
Payoff odds: 17 to 1  Correct odds: 18 to 1  Percentage favoring the
bank: 5 5/19%
Street bet or threenumber bet:
The player places the chip(s) on the outside line of the layout. This
indicates that he is betting the three numbers opposite the chips, going
across the layout. If the winning number is one of these three, the player
wins.
Payoff odds: 11 to 1  Correct odds: 11 2/3 to 1  Percentage favoring
the bank: 5 5/19%
Square bet, quarter bet, corner bet or fournumber bet:
The player places the chip(s) on the intersection of the lines between
any four numbers. If any of these four numbers wins, the player collects.
Payoff odds: 8 to 1  Correct odds: 8 1/2 to 1  Percentage favoring the
bank: 5 5/19%
Line bet or fivenumber bet:
The player places the chip(s) on the intersection of the line separating
the 1, 2, 3 from the 0 and 00 spaces at a corner intersection. This indicates
that he is betting that one of the numbers 1, 2, 3, or 0 or 00 will win.
Payoff odds: 6 to 1  Correct odds: 6 3/5 to 1  Percentage favoring the
bank: 7 7/19%
Note that the house percentage differs from the 5 5/19%, which is the
bank's edge on all other roulette bets. From the player's viewpoint, it
is a bet to avoid because it has 2 12/19% more against the player.
Line bet or sixnumber bet:
The player places the chip(s) on the intersection of the sideline and
a line between two 'streets'. If any of these six numbers wins, the player
collects.

bank: 5 5/19%
Column bet or 12number bet:
The player places the chip(s) on one of the three blank spaces at the
bottom of the layout. This indicates that the player is betting the 12
vertical numbers above the space wagered on.

bank: 5 5/19%
Dozens or 12number bet:
The player places the chip(s) on one of the spaces of the layout marked

the 2nd 12, the numbers 13 to 24 inclusive, and the 3rd 12, the numbers
25 to 36 inclusive.
Payoff odds: 2 to 1  Correct odds: 2 1/6 to 1  Percentage favoring the
bank: 5 5/19%
Lownumber bet (1 to 18):
