When it comes to betting on Roulette, you need to understand some basic principles, such as inside and outside wagering. The 2nd 12 Bet (13-24) is known as an outside bet, which means that it’s on the boxes on the outside of the table.

This is called a "dozen's bet" because you are wagering on one of a dozen numbers to win. The dozen's bet is one of the outside bets that you can make in the game. The inside bets are on actual numbers where you can bet on individual numbers to win, 2 numbers to hit, or 4 numbers to win. The outside bets give lesser payouts, but there is more of a chance that they will be winners. Some of the outside bets are odd or even, red or black, 1-18 or 19-36 and the dozen's bets.
The three dozen's bets are called 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36. If you wager $10 on 13-24, you are betting that a number between 13 and 24 will be chosen when the wheel stops spinning and the white ball stops spinning. If a number between 13 and 24 hits with your ten dollar bet, your payout will be thirty dollars, as the dozen's bets offers 2:1 odds. It's very simple.
You can choose the 13-24 bet by itself and you can also make it more interesting by placing other bets around the table. One strategy that is utilized often when people wager on a dozen's bet is to also wager on separate numbers that correspond to their dozen's bets.
If you play Roulette via the World Wide Web, you should look for an online casino which provides the European version of the game, because it will decrease the house advantage. In European Roulette, there is a house edge of 2.7% - with American Roulette, there is a house advantage of 5.3%. In European Roulette, there is only one zero on the wheel, whereas the American version comes with one zero and one double zero.
In order to get the most from your Roulette experience, no matter which bet you choose, you should learn the house minimum and maximum bets. In some cases, you may need to put down as little as one dollar in order to play. In other cases, it’s five bucks. Maximums also vary by casino, from five hundred dollars to one thousand dollars.
