bets are the inside bets, which means that the
player is betting from the numbers on the wheel.
- Outside bets are
placed on the outside edges of the table, having

black, red, etc. For example, odd covers all the
18 odds and even covers all the 18 evens and so
on. These pay 1 to 1.

to you to try your luck at one number, aiming at a higher
profit margin, or on other bets paying less but having
better odds at winning.
