Roulette Gameplay, Bets & Strategies

Roulette is the ultimate casino table game, with beginner-friendly rules and a wealth of betting options suitable for every player, from novice to seasoned gamer. Let’s break down the basic rules, bets, payouts, and strategies.  

Basic Roulette Rules

A game of roulette starts with a betting period for players to place their chips on their chosen numbers, colours, or table sections.

Next, the dealer spins the roulette wheel in one direction and send the ball spinning in the opposite direction. 

The winning number is the number of the pocket that the ball comes to rest in.

The dealer collects losing bets and pays out winning bets according to the types of bets placed and the corresponding odds.

Types of Bets

  • Straight Bet: a high-risk bet on a single number.  Payout: 35:1
  • Split Bet: a high-risk bet on two adjacent numbers. Payout: 17:1
  • Street Bet: a high-risk bet on three numbers in a row. Payout: 11:1
  • Corner Bet: a medium-risk bet on four numbers in a square. Payout: 8:1
  • Six Line Bet: A medium-risk bet on six numbers in two rows. Payout: 5:1
  • Column Bet / Dozen Bet: A low-risk bet on a column of 12 numbers. Payout: 2:1
  • Even-Money Bet: A low-risk bet on Red or Black, Odd or Even, High (19-36) or Low (1-18). Payout: 1:1
  • Special Bets: Many online roulette games in Ontario have special betting options such as French Bets, 007, and the Snake. These involve betting on combinations of multiple numbers to spread the risk. 
  • Contradictory bets: These are bets that cancel each other out. Betting on Red and Black at the same time is an example. Avoid contradictory bets as far as possible!

Betting Strategies

Betting strategies are intended to maximise potential wins and minimise potential losses. None of them guarantees success, but they can be interesting to experiment with.

  • Martingale System: Double your bet after a losing even-money bet and revert to your original bet after a win. This is a risky system that requires a large bankroll.
  • Reverse Martingale (Paroli) System: Double your bet after a winning even-money bet and revert to the original bet after a loss. This system is intended to make the most of winning streaks.
  • D'Alembert System: Pick a betting unit (eg 1% of your bankroll). Increase your bet by one unit after a win and decrease it by one after a loss.
  • Fibonacci System: Add the previous two betting units to determine your next wager. Add the sum to your bet after a loss and subtract it after a win. The idea is to recoup losses and end with a profit.
