Roulette is one of the few casino games where players can choose between a variety of bets instead of just two-way bets. Some of these many bets can be classified as risky and some less risky, with generally 2 types of bets: Inside Bet and Outside Bet. An Inside Bet is placed on individual numbers of a distinct combination of numbers which are near the middle of the Roulette table layout. On the other hand, an outside bet is placed on a general group of numbers. For example, red or black, even numbers or odd numbers. Since inside bets have a lesser probability and involve greater risk, the payouts are higher than those in outside bets.
While an Inside Bet consists of many varieties of bets, French bets are just another type of Inside Bet. The different Inside Bets include Straight-up bets, Split bets, Street bets, Corner bets, Sucker bets, French bets and Line bets. In effect, it is safe to say that not all Inside Bets are French Bets but all French Bets are definitely identified as an Inside Bet.
The following is a list of a detailed compilation of all the different bets:
When a player bets on any individual number on the Roulette table, then, it is termed as a Straight-up Bet. Any number from 0 to 36 can be chosen by the players and if the ball stops at that number, then, the player wins. If not, they lose. Every Straight-up Bet has a payout of 35:1.
Split bets are the ones where players bet on 2 adjacent numbers on the table layout. If either of the chosen numbers turns up, they win. Two numbers adjacent on the table layout is not equal to adjacent numbers on the Roulette wheel. Every split bet has a payout of 17:1.
When a player bets on any 3 consecutive numbers as present in the table layout, the bet is called a street bet. If the ball lands on either of the three numbers, the player wins. This bet has a payout of 11:1.
Corner Bets are yet another type of Inside Bet where the player has to choose a group of 4 numbers forming a square on the table layout. The player wins if any of these 4 numbers turns up on the Roulette wheel and the bet has a payout of 8:1.
Being one of the types of Splits Bets, French Bets can also be classified as Voisins du Zero (neighbours of zero), Tiers du Cylindre (a third of the wheel), Orphelins (Orphans) and more.
It is reasonably evident that French Bets are a subset of Inside Bets instead of being fully identical. The advantages of a French Bet is that in one bet a player can wager on multiple numbers or bets.
