Betting the 12s in Roulette

Published on Saturday, June 19, 2010 by

Betting on roulette is a fun and popular way to spend time and win money in any online casino. Popular on our site as well as in Vegas, roulette is a skill testing game with the possibility of big swings and payouts.

Playing the outside of the board offers up a lot of exciting options for gamers. One of our favorite playing methods is playing the 12s, or dozens. This refers to betting on whether the ball will land on 1-12, 13-24 or 25-36.

When you play the first, second or third set of numbers of the roulette wheel, the payout increases. Hitting your third of the board will result in a healthy 2-1 payout.

Betting Examples and Payout:

You are playing the outside and wager 10 dollars on the first 12. After the dealer spins the ball, it settles on 9Red. That is between 1-12, so your bet won! Collect $30 total from the table (the $10 you wagered, plus the $20 you won).

If you bet the first dozen and the ball landed on 0, 00 or 13-36, your wager lost. The dealer collects your $10 bet and it is time for the next round of wagering.

Players use a variety of betting systems in roulette – especially in the 12s because of the higher payout and relatively low risk (compared to individual numbers betting).

Playing the dozens is a great way to progress from playing the easier to track outside options like Odd/Even, Black/Red or 1-18/19-36. The payouts are easier to understand that some ‘inside’ options as well.

While learning to play roulette, think about starting from the outside and working your way in.

Next time you are at the roulette wheel, check out the 12s and see if you like the pace, payouts and strategy.
