Casino Lingo: Roulette

August 24, 2018

Round and round and round it goes, where the little marble lands, nobody knows…

Roulette is one of the most exciting games on any casino floor. The point of the game? Correctly guess where the marble will land. Similar to craps, roulette has a seemingly infinite number of ways to win on any single roll. Now that roulette has rolled out at Riverwind and we’ve compiled a list of terms that will help you on your way to becoming a roulette rock star.

STRAIGHT BET
This is a bet on any single number. If the ball lands in that number’s pocket on the wheel, this bet pays out 35:1.

SPLIT BET
A split bet is similar to a straight bet but placed on a line that separates two numbers. If the ball lands on either of those numbers, this bet pays 17:1.

OUTSIDE BET
An outside bet is any bet that isn’t a specific number bet. These are typically the most popular bets in roulette. Each of the bets below is considered an outside bet.

RED OR BLACK
A simple bet on whether the winning number will be red or black. This bet pays out 1:1.

ODD OR EVEN
Similar to red or black, but betting on the winning number being odd or even. This bet pays out 1:1.

FIELD BET
A bet on whether the winning number will either be 1-18 (low) or 19-36 (high). This bet pays out 1:1.
