During my experiences with Roulette, I have noticed that I have a certain way of betting, how unknowingly it is. By paying close attention to the reaction of people, you can sometimes find a particular pattern of betting. Sometimes, this may be a strategy, other times they will feel as if they were, or maybe it’s entirely up to what has just happened. In any case, I can assume that everybody has a reason to bet at something. If I find that my bet has a very high chance, I will not necessarily increase it, but then I will add one number instead of multiple. For this reason, I decided to go deeper into the official names of the different ways of bet on players who want to try Roulette, but not fully understand it. By knowing the correct terms, this makes it easier to explain.
Plein and Cheval
Betting on roulette is the most simple and, I think, the most risky, when you bet on just one number. This is called Plein (A) and the odds are 35 by 1, which means you will be paid 35 times. The risk of getting nothing I get is quite high, but you also win something. However, I only do this if I have a very good feeling at a certain number, or am a bit crazy. You can of course also put on two adjacent numbers, which is called Cheval (B). Of course, your chance of winning will be twice as high, although payout odds are 17 to 1. Still quite risky so, but still more likely that Plein.
Transversal and Carré
To make it even harder you can choose to use Transversale or Carré. Transversal (C) in a step higher than Cheval as you bet for three numbers in a row. You can do this by placing a chip on the right or left of the three numbers, which means you can expect 11 times your bet as a win. Now it’s awkward; You can also cross this with a Cheval by placing the charts right or left between two numbers, this is called Transversal Simple (D). This is paid out as a win with 5 times the bet. A Carré (E) appears more often on the Roulette table, this is when a fiche is placed at the intersection of four adjacent numbers. Carré delivers 8 bets on payout. Well, a bit more profit than the Transversal Simple as you see.
Colonne and Colonne à Cheval
At the bottom of the roulette table it’s stated three times quite clear 2-1. This is also the payment of a Colonne (F). If you bet on the Colonne, you actually put 12 numbers in a column, so the odds are pretty big that one of your numbers will fall. You can also choose to go for 12 numbers in the top rows (G). These are also divided into 12 groups, like the Column, namely 1st 12, 2nd 12 and 3rd 12. If you want to make your chances even more attractive then you can choose a Colonne à Cheval (H). This looks like the Transversal Simple, you put on two adjacent columns. For example, you bet on 24 numbers, and the possible payout will also be lower, e.g. 0.5 to 1. This strategy only seems to work really if you win a lot, only than you can collect money.
This is perhaps the most famous bet that attracts mainly beginners, so I started myself this way too. With Chance Simple you can bet on red or black (I), even or odd (J) or the first or last eighteen digits of the Roulette Table (K). At the last option, you place the chips on one of two options: 1 to 18 or 19 to 36. With these bets you make the highest probability of profit, no less than 50%, but the payout is only 1 to 1. These are the best-bet wagers and therefore the lowest payout.
