Roulette Street Bet Explained: Basics, Odds, Payouts

Roulette is one of the few casino games that have a variety of betting options to choose from. As a player, you can choose to bet on a single number or colour in Roulette. Also, the game allows you to place wagers on a group of numbers.

One of the bets that cover a set of several numbers in Roulette is the street wager. In this article, we take a look at the concept of street bets in Roulette. Also, we detail the payout and house edge for Roulette street bets. Stick with us!

Basics of Roulette street bet

The game of Roulette features a number of bet types that may not be fully evident at the first glance. And one of them is the Roulette street bet.

Also referred to as Transversale Plein in the French variant, the street bet is a wager on three consecutive numbers on the betting layout. When playing Roulette at both land-based gambling venues and online casinos, the street wager falls into the “Inside Bet” category as it’s placed on the inside (numbered) section on the Roulette table.

Unlike single-number wagers where players need separate coins to wager on each number, the street bet can cover three consecutive numbers with just a single chip. As for the payout, a winning Roulette street bet pays 11:1.

Roulette street bet numbers 

If you’ve played Roulette at a live casino before, you’d be knowing that the numbers on the Roulette table are arranged in a consecutive fashion. As there are 36 numbers on the Roulette wheel (European variant) and given that the street wager covers 3 numbers, a total of 12 street bets can be made in any given Roulette game.

For players who are new to the game of Roulette, here’s how the numbers are arranged on the Roulette betting layout:

3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36

2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29, 32, 35

1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31, 34

    ^            ^            ^

So, if you want to wager on the set of 10-11-12, you’ll have to place your chips on the line on the end of the lower number (which happens to be 10 in this case).

Chip placement in online Roulette

Online Roulette games are software-based games that make use of virtual chips and coins. As such, players can find a separate betting area that includes a dedicated section for the street bet. Speaking about the chip placement in these games, you just have to click/tap on the street wager you want to make and the game will immediately position your chips there.

If you accidentally make a wrong street bet, there’s the option to remove it using the undo option. But note that you can only remove your most recent street wager in online Roulette.

How a Roulette street bet is won?

Now you might be wondering about the process for winning street bets in Roulette. Well, a Roulette street bet is won when the ball lands in one of the three numbers that are part of the wager.

In land-based Roulette games, the dealer puts a dolly marker on the resulting number on the betting grid. This indicates the ball has stopped in that numbered pocket and that number has won.

As with other mobile casino games, the result is displayed on your screen when playing Roulette games at an online or mobile casino.

Roulette street bets winning odds

If you make a street wager on the European wheel, your chances of winning are 3:37 (8.1%). When placing street bets on the American wheel, the winning odds are 3:38 (7.9%).

If you wish to wager on a set of more than three numbers, you can go with other betting options like the Corner bets. And if you want to try something different, then you may want to go with the Roulette side bets.

House advantage for Roulette street bets

The casino edge for Roulette street bets is the same as the house advantage for other standard bet types in Roulette. With the American Roulette wheel featuring two zero slots, the street bet house edge stands at 5.26%. As for the single zero European Roulette wheel, the casino edge is 2.7%.

Roulette street bet payout odds

If you happen to win a Roulette street bet, you’ll get paid at odds of 11:1. So if you wager £1, for example, you’ll receive £11 in return if you win. The initial stake of £1 is also returned, so your total payout will be £12.

But if in case luck isn’t in your favour and you lose, both your initial wager amount and the total bet size will be lost.
