Roulette Payouts & Odds

If you have been following our detailed roulette resources already, or you already have some knowledge of the game, then you will know that there are a number of different payouts and odds available to win from when playing this classic casino game.

This dedicated page will provide an insight into those roulette payouts and odds, whilst also giving you some hints and tips that can potentially be used to help further your overall betting experience when playing this top game.

What are roulette payouts and odds?

Of course, with the vast number of different bets that are available, each one will provide a different payout reward when used successfully, although it can be rather tricky to know what the odds of it happening are and just what the payout reward would be if you do not have any prior knowledge of it.

It is perhaps best to start with the roulette odds that are available, as the roulette payouts can then be worked out once we know what to expect from a successful outcome.

Roulette Payouts

As mentioned, there are a host of different bets that can be placed, with each of them providing bettors with a different payout reward if they occur. These are those bets and the reward ratio that will be offered:

  • Straight Up – 35:1
  • Split – 17:1
  • Street – 11:1
  • Corners – 8:1
  • Basket – 6:1
  • Line – 5:1
  • Column – 2:1
  • Dozen – 2:1
  • Low Number – 1:1
  • High Number – 1:1
  • Red/Black – 1:1

As can be seen, each bet that is possible above to place on roulette will provide a different payout that can be earned as a reward when it lands successfully.

A roulette payout will typically be worked out by multiplying the bet amount by the payout odds. For instance, those who are successful in landing a ‘Straight Up’ bet with a $1 bet will be in line to win $35 plus their initially $1 bet back. Make it a $10 bet and a roulette payout of $350 will be won, and so on.

Roulette Odds

Whilst the roulette payouts can look rather attractive and handsome in places when they are awarded, it is important to note that the roulette odds that are provided can make life rather challenging. However, they will also make any win that occurs all the sweeter!

Depending on the type of game played, the roulette odds will look a little something like this (European Roulette & American Roulette odds provided in the order outlined):

  • Single Number – 35:1 – 2.70% or 2.60%
  • 2 Number Combination – 17:1 – 5.4% or 5.3%

  • Even/Odd – 1:1 – 48.60% or 47.4%
  • Red/Black – 1:1 – 48.60% or 47.4%

There are a number of different bets that can be placed in this classic casino game, with each of them providing a number of different roulette payouts that can be enjoyed when they are wagered on successfully.

The roulette odds should help to provide an indication about which options are the best to try and obtain a roulette payout, although we understand some will want to try and land the biggest possible payouts they can by betting on those with the longest odds.
