# Roulette Odds: What Are Different Bets?

Now you know all the roulette bets and how much you can win with each one. So we come to the most interesting part of the article. It is time to calculate the roulette odds and find out the long-term value of each roulette bet.

I have calculated the RTP (player win) for each of the bets listed in the tables below. This is what we call the payout ratio. The payout ratio is the long-term expected value of a bet. You can dig deeper into the topic in my article on RTP and variance.

Some of these bets are only available in the American or European versions of the game, so some cells are empty.

Note that the RTP of the “top line” bet in American roulette is lower than the RTP of any other roulette bet. This is because this bet covers five numbers and only pays the value of the bet x7. If the winnings of this bet were 7.2 times the bet, it would have the same RTP as the other bets of American roulette. So it is not a good idea to put chips on the “top line” bet.
