What does "Outside Bet" mean in roulette?

The "Outside Bets" refer to the bets that sit outside the central number bets on a roulette table, such as:

  • Column Bet - A 12-number bet, which covers all of the numbers in the corresponding column. This bet pays at 2 to 1.
  • Dozen Bet - A 12-number bet. Players can choose from the first 12 (covering 1-12), the second dozen (covering 13-24) or the third dozen (covering 25-36). Again, this bet pays 2 to 1.
  • Colour Bet - An 18-number bet, which covers all the red numbers or all the black numbers. Colour bets pay at 1 to 1.
  • Even/Odd Bet - An 18-number bet in which the player chooses to bet on any odd number or any even number. This bet pays 1 to 1.
  • High/Low Bet - Another 18-number bet covering either 1-18 or 19-36. Again, this bet pays 1 to 1.
