What’s the Difference Between Inside and Outside Bets?
Outside bets offer a lower payout but have better odds of winnings. Inside bets offer a higher payout but
with lower odds of winning. You can find outside bets placed in groups outside of the numbered grid, while
inside bets are placed within the grid.
Inside bets are wagers placed on individual numbers or specific number combinations. Common inside bets are
straight ups, splits, streets, squares, quints, five number, and snakes. These bets all offer large payouts but
also come with a high risk – the probability of winning an inside bet is low.
Outside bets are placed outside the numbered box. There are five different outside bets that players can
make: red or black, even or odd, 1-18 or 19-46, dozen bets, and column bets. Players are more likely to win
with an outside bet – it’s the best choice for new roulette players looking for a lower risk wager.
