“Ladies and gentlemen, your bets please. Don’t be stingy, Carl.” Hi, I’m Renny and today we’re playing online roulette! To me, roulette is like the quintessential casino game. Players can bet on all kinds of things: whether the number the roulette ball lands on will be single or double, odd or even, black or white, or even fall within set ranges of numbers.
I like to live on the wild side and bet on single numbers, which gives me the lowest chance of winning but the highest possible payout at 35 to 1. Jack over there is predictable as pie. He always places his chips on one of three groups of 12 numbers or one of two columns of numbers, which all have payouts of 2 to 1. And Taylor is always anxiously sweating like a mule.
Hence why she only bets on whether the number is even or odd, black or white, or falls within one of two groups of 18 numbers. Her bets have the highest odds, but the lowest payout at only 1 to 1. You can also split your bet on 2 to 6 numbers of your choice. A split gets you a potential payout of 17 to 1, a three-line, 11 to 1, a corner bet, 8 to 1 and a 6-line bet gets you 5 to 1.
You can place as many bets as you want. If you’re a gamble-happy moose like me, this is both dangerous and amazing news. Let’s say you think the next winning number will be red and in the second group of 12 numbers, but you also wanna bet your lucky numbers 1,2 and 3. You could put 50 bucks on the second dozen, two $10 chips on red and one $10 chip on the 1,2,3 line, totaling an 80-dollar bet. I see you rollin!
Once you’ve placed your bets, hit the Casinoslots spin button. The ball spins and stops at 19 red. You lose your line bet, but win $190 on your bets that the number is red and of the second group of 12.
Congrats! Gong xi! Badhai ho! Mazal Tov!
