LAS VEGAS CASINO GAMBLING BASICS: ROULETTE TERMS
Roulette is one of the most enjoyable games in a casino. No time-consuming learning curve, a variety of bets, not too much math, and a social atmosphere where fortunes can be won if Lady Luck smiles.
Roulette, like many Las Vegas-style casino table games, has its own set of slang terms.
For example, when you bet on an individual number in roulette, it’s called a “straight-up” bet. A bet between two adjoining numbers is called a “split.”
You can also make a “street” bet, which is a bet on three numbers in a single horizontal line. Depending upon the table’s layout, a street bet is made on the line at the end of the three numbers, either to the right or left. (Ask your dealer for help.)
A “trio” bet is on made on three numbers at once.
A “basket” bet is a bet on five numbers, and is placed at the intersection of 0,00,1,2,3. This bet, by the way, has a house “edge” (or advantage) of 7.89 percent, whereas others have an edge of 5.26 percent, so it’s not the best bet in roulette, but hey, if you hit a lucky streak, there are no bad bets.
A “snake bet” zig-zags across the layout, covering the numbers 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32 and 34.
