Street Bets in Roulette
There are all sorts of bets that can be made in roulette - and you may be familiar with bets such as straight-up bets, red/black bets, and even columns and corner bets… but there are lots more that you can make, especially inside the grid area - and on such is the street bet - where one or more chips are placed on top of the outer grid line.
Here, we’ll look at street bets, the different options, and how they pay out if you manage to hit a win.
What are Street Bets?
Street Bets are a type of inside bet where you place a bet on three consecutive numbers in a horizontal row on the roulette table. This type of roulette bet is also commonly referred to as a row bet because it covers an entire row of numbers.
So, here's how it works and how to place a street bet in roulette:
How A Roulette Street Bet Works
- Selection of Numbers: To place a street bet, you need to choose three consecutive numbers you want to bet on - e.g. 7, 8, and 9.
- Place Your Chips: You then place your chips at the edge of the row containing your chosen numbers. So, you might place your chips at the end of the row with numbers 7, 8, and 9.
- Payout: If the ball lands on any of your three selected numbers, you win. The payout for a winning street bet is typically 11:1 - so you should receive 11x your original bet.
Location of a Roulette Street Bet on the Roulette Table
On a standard roulette table layout, you’ll find the street bet option on the inside betting area. The inside betting area consists of different betting options related to specific numbers or groups of numbers. The rows of numbers are usually labeled ‘1st 12’, ‘2nd 12’, and ‘3rd 12’ - representing the first, second, and third rows of numbers.
You need to place your street bets at the end of a row, where the row containing your chosen numbers intersects with the line marking the inside and outside betting areas. The exact location of your bet may vary slightly depending on the layout of the roulette table, but it will always be next to your selected row of numbers.
Street bets simply give you better odds of winning than betting on a single number - but with lower odds of winning than betting on larger groups of numbers - like red/black, making it a great choice if you like a balance of risk versus rewards.
Roulette Street Bet Options
When you play roulette, street bets offer you several options for betting on three consecutive numbers. Here are the main street bet options available to you - and how you would place a bet on each of them.
Standard Street Bet
This is the most common street bet, where you bet on any row of three consecutive numbers on the betting layout. To place a standard street bet, you simply follow these steps:
- Select the row of numbers you want to bet on. If you choose the numbers 1, 2, and 3, you place your bet at the end of the row containing those numbers.
- Place your chips at the intersection where the row you choose meets the line marking the inside and outside betting areas.
- If any of your three chosen numbers come up, you win.
Double Street Bet
Also known as a six-line bet, this is a bet on two adjacent rows of three numbers, each covering six consecutive numbers. To place a double street bet:
- Choose the two rows of numbers you want to bet on. So, you might choose 4, 5, 6 plus 7, 8, 9.
- Place your chips at the intersection where the two selected rows meet the line marking the inside and outside betting areas.
- If the ball lands on any of the six chosen numbers, you win.
Split Street Bet
This combines a street bet with a split bet, meaning you bet on a single row of three consecutive numbers plus an additional single number that is part of that row. Here's how to place a split street bet:
Choose your row of three consecutive numbers such as 10, 11, and 12. Place your chips at the end of the row containing those numbers, as you would for a standard street bet.
You then place a chip on the line separating the last number in the row (i.e. 12) and the adjacent single number (13).
If the ball lands on any of the four numbers selected - 10, 11, 12, or 13, then you win.
How Does a Roulette Street Bet Payout?
To win a street bet, you simply need the ball to land on any of the three selected numbers within your chosen row.
If you are lucky enough to hit a win, then the payout for a winning street bet in roulette is generally 11 to 1. This means that if you bet £10, for example, on a street bet and your bet is successful, you would get back your original stake plus a winning payout of 11 times your bet. So, in this example, your total winnings would be £110 - your £10 original bet plus a £100 payout. But what are your odds of winning? Well, the odds of winning a street bet in roulette are determined by the number of possible winning outcomes compared to the total number of possible outcomes.
So, for a standard European roulette wheel with 37 pockets, there are three winning outcomes for a street bet - so 3 numbers would win it for you out of 37 possible outcomes. Therefore, the odds of winning a street bet are approximately 3/37, which translates to around 8.11%.
However, as you can see, the payout and odds above are based on European roulette rules, and the house edge can change depending on the version you play. In American roulette, there is an additional double zero pocket, so the odds of winning will be slightly different (although the payout will normally remain the same). In this instance, your chance of winning is 3 pockets out of 38 pockets - 3/38, which equates to about 7.89%.
You now know all about the roulette street bet, how they work, and whether or not it’s the right bet for you.
