Roulette Outside Bets

Home > News > Roulette > Roulette Outside Bets

In the game of Roulette, two major kinds of bets exist: inside and outside. Inside bets are found in the inner section of the table layout, while outside bets are located in the outer section. In this casino news, our focus will be on Roulette Outside Bets and how to play them. Let’s explore their meaning and how to wager them.

What are Roulette Outside Bets?

A Roulette outside bet is the type of bet placed on a big group of numbers based on color and position properties, even/odd numbers, etc., right outside the inside bets.

If both Roulette’s outside and inside bets are compared side by side, many players will agree that the outside bets are less risky than inside bets. Being less risky alone makes Roulette a choice as the best casino table game for some players.

Many differ as for the advantage in odds, but we’ll suggest you experience the game for yourself. Find the best casino table game odds, only at Slots Paradise Casino! 

Types of Roulette Outside Bets

Roulette has the standard US Roulette wheel of 38 numbers (00, 0-36) and the European and French Roulette wheel with 37 numbers (0-36), but in this article, we’ll use the US variant wheel. Below are the Roulette outside bets available in online casinos:

Red/Black Bets

Except for the numbers 0 and 00, which have green colors, every number from 1 to 36 on the Roulette table is alternatively marked red and black. So, if checked and half of the numbers are red while the remaining half is black, place the betting chip(s) on either the black or red numbers section to place this bet.

So placing a red/black bet means you are predicting that the Roulette ball will fall on a number with either red or black color. If the spin’s outcome is a single or double zero, the red/black bet will lose altogether, but if the bet wins, it pays 1 to 1.

High/Low Bets

A high/low bet is placing a bet on either of two halved numbers. The numbers 1 to 36 are split into two halves of low (1-18) and high (19-36), and players are betting that the Roulette ball will land within their predicted half. Once again, 0 and 00 stay outside the numbers in this bet.

To place this  Roulette outside bet, place the betting chip(s) on either box labeled 1 to 18 or 19 to 36. The high/low bet has a payout of 1 to 1 for every win incurred.

Odd/Even Bets

This  Roulette outside bet is straightforward and can be guessed by its name already. We can have 18 odd numbers and 18 even odd numbers from the 36 numbers, and the bet entails players predicting if the ball will land on an odd or even number.

Players must place the betting chip(s) on either box marked for odd or even bets to place this wager. The odd/even bet pays out 1 to 1 for every win.

Column Bet

According to the 36 numbers available in Roulette online, we can have three distinct vertical columns, which consist of 12 numbers equally. The column bet allows bets to be placed on a column. The betting chips are placed in the three boxes for each column at the far end of the Roulette table layout by the right for players to place this bet.

The column boxes are denoted “2-1” on the table. The column bet pays out 2 to 1 on every win.

Dozen Bets

A dozen consists of 12 numbers, and since we have 36 numbers excluding the 0 and 00, we have three dozen in Roulette marked with 1st dozen, 2nd dozen, and 3rd dozen. The first dozen covers the numbers 1 to 12, the 2nd dozen covers 13 to 24, and the 3rd dozen covers 25 to 36. For players to place a bet, the chip(s) is placed on any of the three dozen boxes from the left side of the Roulette table. Players can wager on a maximum of two dozen.

The dozen Roulette outside bets pays out 2 to 1 on every win.


With constant practice of the rules and Roulette outside bets, and proper instruction that you can also find in our casino guides, you’ll soon find the Roulette game your best casino table game. However, always pay attention to the rules of any game, including the rules to Minesweeper. These rules are for the player’s benefit.
