Bets may be placed which are ‘Inside’ or ‘Outside’. An Inside bet is a bet in which the exact number or a small group of numbers that the ball will land on, which is predicted by the player. The outside bet represents a bet on a larger group of pockets, a pocket color, or the bet is placed on odd or even numbers. If the player wants to continue to place bets, this is permissible until the croupier says, ‘no more bets please’. When a color or number wins, the croupier places a dolly or marker on that number. No more activity can take place on that number until the croupier clears the board.
