What Are Outside Bets on Roulette?

In roulette, an outside bet is any bet placed in the outer boxes of the betting table. These bets usually have a 1:1 payout ratio and include bets on black/red, even/odd, and high/low numbers.

Outside bets have a higher chance of winning than inside bets, but the payouts are smaller.

The most common outside bet is red or black, which pays out at 1:1. This means that if you bet $10 on black, you will get $10 back if the ball lands on a black number. The odds of this happening are 47.37%, making it the most likely outcome.

Even or odd is the next most common outside bet, with a 46.15% chance of winning. This bet pays out at 1:1 as well, so if you bet $10 on even and the ball lands on an even number, you will get $10 back.

The last outside bet is high or low, which has a 44.74% chance of winning.

This bet pays out at 1:1 as well, so if you bet $10 on low and the ball lands on a low number (1-18), you will get $10 back.

Outside bets are a good way to minimize risk while still having a chance to win some money. They are not as risky as inside bets, but they also don’t have the potential to pay out as much.
