How much money can I win playing roulette? This is a question that we receive quite often on this website.
The amount that you can win playing roulette depending entirely on a number of different factors, including:
1. Bet Size
2. Bet Choice
3. Type of wheel that you are using
For the purposes of this article, we will assume that you are using an American roulette wheel, which has the extra number (00).
The odds that you receive while playing roulette depends entirely on the type of bet that you make, ranging from a straight red or black wager (1 to 1 payout) to a bet on 0 or 00 (35 to 1 payout).
Here is a look at the odds that you receive for each type of bet while playing roulette:
0 - 35 to 1
00 - 35 to 1
Straight up - 35 to 1
Row - 17 to 1
Split - 17 to 1
Street - 11 to 1
Corner - 8 to 1
Top Line - 6 to 1
Six line - 5 to 1
1st Column - 2 to 1
2nd Column - 2 to 1
3rd Column - 2 to 1
1st Dozen - 2 to 1
2nd Dozen - 2 to 1
3rd Dozen - 2 to 1
Odd - 1 to 1
Even - 1 to 1
Red - 1 to 1
Black - 1 to 1
1 to 18 - 1 to 1
19 to 36 - 1 to 1
Now, the amount that you win depends on how much you bet.
For instance, if you decide to bet $20 on red and it hits, you would get your $20 back plus a profit of $20.
Or, if you decided to take a risk and bet $1,000 on 00 and it hit, you would receive a payout of $35,000.
Some people like to employ a strategy of increasing their bets while on a winning streak and decreasing their bets while on a losing streak.
The house literally has an edge over you every time that the win is spun, so it is imperative that you employ proper bankroll management while playing roulette.
