At Spin247, our online roulette uses a classic European Roulette wheel, which means there is a slightly higher chance for you to win than American Roulette! Not sure what the different types of roulette are? In European Roulette, there is only one 0 on the wheel, however, in American roulette, there are two zeros. Zeros do not fall under red, black, even or odd. Below you can see the different roulette bets, along with the win probability for each of these in both European and American Roulette.

An Inside Bet is a bet placed on any of the numbers or combination of numbers inside the table's layout. See the various inside bets below:
