Roulette odds

Back to Guide

Like many other casino games online, roulette is a game of probabilities. If you’re a Kiwi that’s new to roulette and keen to grasp the odds of roulette bets landing before committing your hard-earned dollars up front, we’ve got you covered.

The different casino payouts for Roulette bet types

When it comes to roulette payouts at an online casino, you’ll usually find these displayed in a ratio like 1:1 or 5:1. Ultimately, the ratio displays how much you’ll get back for every NZ$1 you wager. The size of roulette payouts differ across all the bet types, but they are all linked to their statistical probabilities of occurring.

Below, we’ll show you the most common bet types and their typical payouts and probabilities of occurring:

The effect of variants such as European Roulette on the payouts

Looking at the changes in the probability of roulette odds between American Roulette and European Roulette, it’s easy to see that the latter gives you a better chance of consistently landing winning bets over the long term.

On even-money outside bets, the 1.28% difference is a significant margin for the house over hundreds or thousands of spins. If you want to make your money go further, avoid American Roulette tables whenever you have the option of playing European or French Roulette instead.

Some tips to improve your odds in roulette

  • Avoid roulette games with double zero pockets wherever you can – this carries a much lower casino RTP percentage than single zero roulette games.
  • To prolong your betting bank, stick to the table minimum and wager on even-money outside bets which almost have a 50% chance of winning.
  • Avoid exotic ‘called bets’ that have uncompetitive roulette odds.
