Rules: How to Play Roulette

Roulette seems at first glance like one of the easiest games for online casino players. However, it features a lot of nuances which make it a little bit more complicated - and a lot more exciting. The first thing that you need to know when playing Roulette is what bets are available and how to place them.

The way to split up the different bets in Roulette is to look at the table. When you do this, you will see that the table is divided into numbers on the inside and words on the outside. These are known as inside bets and outside bets.

The main inside bets are as follows:

  • Straight: A bet on a single number.
  • Split: A bet on two numbers.
  • Street: A bet on three numbers.
  • Corner: A bet on four numbers (also sometimes be called a “square”).
  • Six line: A bet on six numbers.

Each of these wagers can be placed by placing your chip(s) in the relevant position on the Roulette table. For the straight, the chip goes on the number you want to wager on; the split goes on the line between two numbers; the street by placing it on the outside line of three numbers in a row; a corner goes on the intersection of any four numbers; the six line is wagered by placing a chip on the line that joins two rows of three numbers.

The main outside bets are:

  • Columns: A column of 12 numbers.
  • Dozens: A block of 12 numbers.
  • 1 -18 or 19 - 36: The numbers on the wheel split in half.
  • Odd or even: Either the odd numbers or even numbers.
  • Red or black: Either the red or black numbers.

The outside bets are all clearly labelled on the Roulette table, so they’re very easy to find.

The Roulette wheel itself is made up of 36 numbers that are either red or black, plus one or two green zeros. If you’re playing on European Roulette then there will be a single green zero on the wheel; if you’re playing on American Roulette then there are two zeros.

All of the Roulette games available at Casino.com ZA have “help” menus built-in which will inform you about any specific rules that apply to that particular game. You can also take a look at our help section located below for help with any other problems you might be having.

Odds and Payouts

Payouts in Roulette are pretty straightforward. Each bet has certain odds associated with it. The outside bets are the easiest to remember:

  • The odds/evens, red/black, 1 - 18, and 19 - 36 all have payouts of evens.
  • Columns and dozens both have payouts of 2/1.

Imagine a wager on red, for example. This would pay even money, meaning that if $20 is wagered and it’s a winning bet, that original stake plus $20 would be returned to the player. Odds of 2/1 means that the original stake plus $40 can be won.

The inside bets all have different levels of payout:

  • A straight pays out 35/1
  • A split pays out 17/1
  • A street pays out 11/1
  • A corner pays out 8/1
  • A six line pays out 5/1


If you placed a wager of a single unit on a straight, then it would mean you win 35 units and your original stake. So, a $10 bet would pay back $360.

The Most Important Tips Before We Spin the Roulette Wheel on Your Bets

There are a few main tips to consider before you start spinning the wheel and placing wagers. They are actually less to do with how to play the game, and more to do with being fully prepared.

  • Find the right table for you. Think about what you want from the game and find a table that offers it. This can be anything from betting limits to special rules that are in play.
  • Set your budget and stick to it. Setting your budget is vital. Make sure that once you have set your budget, you don’t deviate from it. Part of setting your budget means setting your minimum and maximum stake values, so please don’t overlook that. This is about making sure you only wager what you can afford to lose.
  • Find the right bonus for the games you want to play. It’s no use getting a casino bonus that rewards you with free slot spins if you want to play Roulette. Make sure you find a good bonus for table games.
  • Pick a casino that uses an independent RNG. Here at Casino.com ZA we use an independent RNG to ensure that all of our games are fair and legitimate.
  • Choose a casino that is fully regulated. We make sure to show the licences that we have regulating us at Casino.com ZA, so it’s obvious that we are a reputable casino.

Top 3 Strategies and Betting Systems

When you choose to play online Roulette, or any table game, in fact, it’s vitally important to have a bankroll management system in place. These are ways to control your bankroll in order to give you a better chance of walking away with a profit. While they can’t guarantee you a win, the house will always have an edge and they can allow you to ride out your losing streaks and make the most of your winning streaks. There are too many possible strategies to cover them all right here, so we have selected the three most popular to run through.

Martingale

The Martingale system is one of the most famous bankroll management strategies of all time. It essentially involves placing a wager on an even money bet. For example, red/black. Whenever you win, you keep your stake at the same level. If the bet loses then you increase your wager by double. If the bet loses again, then you double it again, and this continues until your next win, at which point you revert back to your original bet. This will then cover all previous losses and you can attempt to build a winning streak.

Paroli

The Paroli system is basically the opposite of the Martingale system, but still uses even-odds bets. In the Paroli system, whenever you win you will leave your payout on the table for the next round. So, this means if you wager 1 unit on an evens bet, you would receive 2 units for a win. For the next bet, you wager the 2 units: the risk is really the same as the first bet, but the potential reward is doubled. Of course, this could in theory go on forever, so you must choose when to stop doubling your wagers. If your bet loses then you go back to wagering a single unit and stay at that level until you place a winning bet.

D’Alembert

The D’Alembert system is similar to both the Martingale and Paroli system in that it’s based around even money bets. The way the D’Alembert system works is that when you lose a bet, you increase your wager by 1 unit; when you win, you decrease it by 1 unit. Say you lost your first 3 bets: your fourth bet would be 4 units. If you win, then the wager after that would be 3 units. This way you avoid increasing your wager to a huge amount like in the Martingale system, but you are also able to cover losing streaks with greater ease.

Variety of Roulette Games to Play

Here at Casino.com ZA, we have a huge range of different Roulette games available to players. You can enjoy variations which cover all the different aspects of the game. Here are some of the most popular variations that we have available:

American Roulette

American Roulette is one of the two most popular Roulette variations. Its standout feature is that it has not one, but two zeroes on the board, worsening the odds for players. American Roulette is avoided by serious players who recognise that, mathematically, it’s a crazy choice over European or French Roulette.

European Roulette

European Roulette is the other “most played” Roulette title, but this has just the single green zero on the reels.

French Roulette

French Roulette is ostensibly European Roulette but with one difference: it can include the En Prison or La Partage rule. This rule lowers the house edge by fractionally and so is the best variant for players who want to win.

Multiplayer Tables

Multiplayer tables allow players to wager together at the same RNG table. Normally there are chat functions which give players the ability to talk to each other, either between or during spins.

Live Dealer Roulette

Live Dealer Roulette is a standard Roulette game except instead of an RNG, it uses a real-life dealer streamed in HD, which comes with software to allow players to place any bet they like, as well as interacting with the dealer.
