The payout is based on the type of bet, the odds against it and the house edge which is higher than most of the casino games. The American Roulette wheel includes numbers 1-36, a single zero and a double zero totaling up to 38 wheel slots.
There are two types of bets that can be made while playing this Microgaming game online; namely the inside and outside bets.
In the Inside bet, a player can bet on numbers 0-36, or a small combination of two, three, four, five or six numbers. Inside bets can be of different kinds; for instance, a win in a Split bet occurs when the ball rests on one of the adjacent numbers that the player has bet on. In Straight-up, as the name suggests, a win is made when the ball rests on the number that is bet on. If the bet is made on four adjacent numbers and the ball falls on any one of them, a Corner bet is won. A Street bet includes winning the bet when the ball falls on any one of the three numbers in a row. In an Inside bet, the higher the odds, the higher are the payouts.
An Outside bet includes a higher combination of numbers, colors, or a combination of both numbers and colors. Types of outside bets include dozen bets, column bets, red or black, even or odd which indicates provide higher chances of winning.
