Payout is an expected amount of money the player can get regarding the roulette bet placed.
Payouts in online roulette are as in any other gambling game dependent upon the probability of a number coming up. Single numbers (like Straight-up bet) provide very attractive payout of 35 to 1, but a straight-up number bet wins very rarely and the roulette odds are very small. Other bets only provide even money but are very likely to win and therefore are the ones you should go for.
Roulette payouts are the same for internet roulette and land version of the game. Let's start with the payouts for inside bets. These are the highest because of the low winning probabilities. For example, if your Straight-up bet worth $100 wins, you will be paid out: 35 x $100 = $3,500; but if you make a Split or Street bet and win, the payout will be $1,700 and $1,100 correspondingly.
Inside Bets Payouts
Outside bets have much lower payouts than inside bets, but they are considered to be the most secure. Here the roulette payouts vary from 2-to-1 to 1-to-1 (which are also known as 'even money'). So, if you place $100 and win on any of the outside bets you can be paid $200 or $100 in addition to the wagered amount that is also returned to you.
The size of the payout that players receive depends upon the size of the bet they place at the roulette table. As you see, the less numbers the bet covers, the higher payouts are. To remember all the bets and payouts use the special roulette cheat sheet which contains all you need for roulette play.
At any roulette table a player is allowed to place as many bets as he wishes within the bankroll limits. Thus several bets from the player could win. In such a situation the payouts are added together. For example, if you place $5 straight-up on 7, $5 on red, and $5 on the first dozen and the ball lands on 7, you will be paid out:
($5+$5x35) + ($5+$5x1) + ($5+$5x2) = $205
Probably, the best option is to combine bets which means to place both inside and outside bets, because then you have more chances to win than when you place just straight-up bets or the ones with high payouts. To play roulette wisely, no matter how lucky you are, it is better to follow roulette strategy and manage your bankroll.
