About Roulette Odds

The European roulette wheel has 36 numbers and one zero. The zero on the wheel stands for the long term roulette profit of the casino. This wheel gives good odds on nearly every game and is a good game to play for a low house edge.

Roulette Odds

The bets with the best roulette odds are those on red/black, even/odd or first half/last half as these all have odds of 50%. Play roulette here to make use of your odds. Bets on one dozen or one third of the wheel have odds of 2 to 1. Betting on two dozen or two columns on the wheel gives the player 1 to 2 odds. Subsequent bets, such as the six-number, four-number, three-number, two-number and single bet have gradually decreasing odds in proportion to the quantity of numbers you are betting on.

Special Rules

An exemption to all the roulette odds provided above can be had with one of two special roulette rules. These rules apply to even bets when the ball lands on zero. In this instance, the la partage rule will return half of the player's bet, collecting only half of the loss. The in prison rule allows the bet to stay on the table for another spin. Both rules decrease the house edge to 1.35%.

If you're looking for a game of chance where you still feel like you have a little control, roulette is the answer. If calculating the odds seems like too much hassle, remember you can always head over to the slot machines for some simple, engaging fun.
