Roulette Outside Bets
When you are playing online roulette there are a number of bets
you can make but the easiest ones are the outside bets. The three
main ones are red/black, odd/even, or high/low. You get even money
payouts on all three of these bets which make them a decent value
at the online casino.
In addition to the main three outside bets there are also columns
or dozens bets in roulette. With the columns bet you are betting
on a particular column of numbers with 12 numbers available in each
column. The dozens bet gives you the choice of betting the first
twelve numbers, 1-12, the second twelve, 13-24 or the last twelve,
Outside bets are very popular with players who want to try systems
like the Martingale, parlay, etc. because you are betting on just
one particular wager like red or black.
The odds on outside bets are 2-1 since you are betting on one particular
column. The house does have the edge on outside bets because of
the zero and the double zero. If those two numbers didn’t
exist there would be no house edge at all. In American roulette
you will find that the wheel has both the zero and the double zero
while European roulette wheels have just the single zero. If you
can find a European roulette wheel then that is your best option
since you reduce the house edge from 5.26% to 2.7%.
