Roulette Table Layouts

Bets are placed on the roulette table before the croupier spins the wheel. Look at the roulette table. The American and European tables are the same except for the one very important difference of the 00 on the American table.

By convention, some bets at roulette are called inside bets and some are called outside. This terminology has some affect on the bets as we will see, but none on the outcome of the spin, or on the payout to the winners.

In both European and American roulette there are eight possible bets. See the charts below. The only difference is in the fifth bet. Click for information on history, how to play, wheel layouts and roulette terminology.
