In roulette, a call bet is a bet that the player shouts out to the dealer without placing chips on the table. The dealer then places the chips for the player.
Call bets are only available on European and French roulette tables.
There are several different types of call bets. The most common is the Voisins du Zero, which covers 17 numbers on the wheel that are near the zero.
Other common call bets include the Tiers du Cylindre, which covers 12 numbers that are in a tier on the wheel, and the Orphelins, which covers 8 numbers that are not covered by other call bets.
Call bets tend to have higher payouts than regular Inside or Outside bets, but they also have a higher house edge. For this reason, they are not popular with serious players who are looking to win money.
However, they can be fun for casual players who are just looking to enjoy themselves.
