Which payout for roulette is the best?

Firstly, let's at look this more in terms of playing better instead of just thinking of the highest payout could give us. To answer the question, the most you can win is by doing a 'Straight-up' bet, which would land you a 35-1 payout. That's a ridiculous amount of money, but can you guess the chances of hitting it? If you guessed, 'small', you're on the right track. Anyway, let's discuss the other types of bets and roulette payouts.

The American version has the worst chances, with the European version coming in second and the French version of the game having the best chances of pocketing some roulette profit.

  • Inside Bets:
  • 1. Straight-up is 37-1 and you'll get the big 35-1 payout.
  • 2. Split: 18-1 odds, but you'll land winnings at 17-1.
  • 3. Street: 11.6-1, but can win at 11-1.
  • 4. Trio sits with an 11.6-1 with winnings coming in at 11-1.
  • 5. Corner: is pretty even with odds at 8.5-1 where the winnings would be 8-1.
  • 6. Five Number also is pretty close, with odds at 6.6-1 and take-home being 6-1.
  • Outside Bets: these bets are not nearly as dramatic. Many of the variations carry the same chances of winning.
  • 1. Red or Black, Even or Odd and High or Low all have the same 1.11-1 odds of winning with a 1-1 payout.
  • 2. Dozens and Columns both sit at 2.16-1, with winnings coming in at 2-1.

Taking all of these bets and odds into consideration will help you while you play. It's more than just going for the highest payout possible.
