# What Does Splits Mean In Roulette?

You might encounter a few terms you do not recognise when first playing online roulette. One example is the split. What does splits mean in roulette? Splits are a type of bet in roulette where the player places a wager on two adjacent numbers on a roulette table.

We'll examine more on split bets in our Roulette Online blog post below.

## How Does Split Work In Roulette?

A split bet is when you place a wager on two numbers that appear adjacent on the grid layout. It entails the following:

• Select which two numbers you want to bet on. Ensure that they appear in adjacent positions on the roulette table layout.
• Place your wager. You indicate that you're making a split bet by placing your chips on the line separating the two numbers.
• Wait for the roulette wheel to stop spinning, and if the ball lands on either of the numbers, you win.

## What Is a Split Worth on Roulette?

A split is worth 17:1 if it pays successfully, i.e., you win 17x your initial bet. If the ball lands on either of the two numbers you picked, you win.

## Can You Split Columns In Roulette?

No, you can't split columns in roulette. Split bets work specifically by placing bets on two adjacent numbers in the grid - it is an inside bet. Conversely, columns are outside bets that cover the 3 vertical number columns, where each contains 12 numbers.

To make a column bet, place your chips in the area at the bottom of the column. It covers all the numbers in a given column. If the ball appears on any of these numbers, you win your respective bet.

Splitting isn't possible for columns in roulette. They're only applicable to adjacent numbers.

## 4 Splits and 2 Columns Roulette Strategy

Players who use the 4 splits and 2 columns roulette strategy combine both inside & outside bets. The idea behind it is to cover a significant area of the roulette table. However, note that roulette is a game of chance where strategies cannot impact the house edge or change the odds of winning.

The strategy works as follows:

• Choose 4 adjacent numbers and place your chips on a line between them, i.e., a split bet.
• Place your wager on 2 columns, each covering 12 numbers.
• If you combine split bets and column bets, you can cover a total of 20 numbers.
• If any of the 4 split numbers land, you receive a 17:1 payout.
• Lastly, if any number in the selected column lands, you receive a 2:1 payout.
