Online Betting And The Roulette Wheel

Mar 12, 2008
There is one aspect of all those ritzy casinos that pulls in the punters because of its apparent glamour and appeal to the big-time gamblers: the roulette wheel. It's more complicated that the usual pokey machines, and certainly more entertaining; it takes skill not usually cultivated by people who spend their time on card games and immediately hunt out the blackjack table.

The roulette wheel is one of those games that just screams out chance and prestige. At first glance, you've got to know very little about the whole process, except that you've got to bet on where the ball will fall on the wheel. Easy. But traditional roulette, not unlike the growing trend of online roulette, has so many more angles and betting strategies than those that are first apparent.
There are two basic types of bets when it comes to online betting in roulette: inside bets and outside bets.

Inside Betting

For beginners at online betting with the roulette wheel, the straight bet is the place to start. This means that you pick a number you think the ball will land on, and simply place your chips in the centre of the square. If the ball lands on that number, you've won the bet. Simple!

In a split bet, you will place your chips on the line between two adjacent numbers. Street betting involves placing your chips on three numbers in one horizontal line, finishing with chips on the edge of the last number in the line. Corner betting requires you to place chips on all four corners of a square pattern, while sixline or sixaine betting places two adjoining street bets together.

Outside Bets

An even money bet is a bet on 18 different numbers, placed in the box that represents either black, red, high, low, even or odds as you prefer. A group bet is simply a bet that is on one of three groups of the twelve numbers, and a column bet is a bet on all 12 numbers that fall on any vertical line. To place this bet, you need to place your chips at the space below the column.

Roulette and Online Betting

Given the physical differences between the online interface and the actual roulette wheel and table, each online provider makes special considerations when putting together the virtual betting parlour. If you are familiar with all the betting strategies, then you will simply have to come to terms with how they are all represented online; if you aren't sure how to deal with much past a straight bet on the wheel, then you're probably going to have to read through the game rules before getting further involved. This is one aspect of online betting where you've really got to teach yourself how it's done!
