Roulette Call Bets - More Possibilities in Roulette

14 Jul 2012

There is nothing difficult or complicated in roulette betting. But there are some aspects, which are not present in all the types of roulette. For example, Call Bets. Those came from France and, of course, they brought French names. These bets are usually present at the single-zero roulette tables of European casinos, while the classic roulette bets are in power as well.

In this type of roulette bets the wheel layout matter. The table layout has no connection to it. The roulette rules remain the same.

Neighbors Bet (Voisin du Nombre)

It is a bet that consists of 5 chips. You cover the number itself and the four neighbors. In total you are making five straight bets. For example, in the casino you would say "Number 33 and the neighbors." It would mean that you are covering number 20, 1, 33, 16, 24.

Zero Neighbors Bet (Voisins du Zero)

It is clear that this bet concerns the zero. It is a bet that covers seventeen numbers but requires only nine chips. On the wheel layout the numbers are from 25 to 22, including these numbers. If you constantly pay attention to the wheel, you will see that it is really easy to figure out all these bets. There are two bets of two chips each and they are placed on 0/2/3 and 25/26/28/29. There are five split bets 1 chip each. Those are 4/7, 12/15, 18/21, 19/22 and 32/35.

Third Section of the Wheel Bet (Tiers du Cylindre)

It is the bet that covers twelve numbers and it is only six chip bet. There are six split bets on 5/8, 10/11, 13/16, 23/24, 27/30 and 33/36.

Orphans (Orphelins)

There are two types of this bet. One is a Full Orphans Bet and another is Orphans Split Bet. The former requires eight chips, which would cover 0, 6, 9, 14, 17, 20, 31 and 34. That makes 8 straight bets. The latter requires only five chips for betting. One chip for each of the following bets: 6/9, 14/17, 17/20 and 31/34. And one straight bet on number 1.

You are to be careful with applying such bets, as not all the casinos follow this rule. It is just an optional one.
