You lay Inside Bets on individual numbers, two numbers or three numbers. Odds of these bets are low, but the associated bets are quite high. Outside Bets have higher odds, but lower payouts. We shall see some examples of Inside and Outside Bets in the upcoming sections.
Roulette bets and their payouts
The most profitable Roulette bet is the Straight bet where you lay a bet on any single number. It could be 1,10, 5, etc. The associated payout is 35:1, which means that for every $1 that you bet, your payout would be $35. There is a Split bet also.
In a Split bet, you lay bets on the line separating 2 numbers, e.g., 2/3, 5/6. In this case, the odds are 17:1. Street bets involve laying bets on 3 numbers, while in a Basket Bet, punter stake money on 5 numbers (00,0,1,2,and 3).
Corner, Double Street and Snake Bets

Understanding Outside bets.
These bets are laid on numbers or their groupings located on the outer side of the betting table. Column bets are laid on any of the columns containing 12 numbers. The payout is 2:1. A low bet means you are staking money on numbers between 1-18.
High bets, Colour bets, Even/Odd bets
When you stake money on numbers between 19-36, that is a high bet. In a colour bet, you stake money on red or black numbers. Colour and High/Low bets are even money bets. The Odd/ Even bet will pay you 1:1 when you stake money on odd or even numbers.
What is a Dozen Bet?
Here, you are wagering on one of the three dozen numbers in the wheel. These dozens are 1-12, 13-24, and 25- 36. The payouts are in the ratio 2:1. This means if you wager money on any number in the first dozen, your payout would be 2x your stake value.
What is better-Inside or Outside?
While Inside bets are definitely more profitable, new gamblers should stay away from them. These bets have very low odds, and newbies can burn their hard-earned money if they aren't careful enough. We would recommend Outside bets to all the newbies here. Move to the next section.
