Few games are as thrilling as roulette is. Watching the ball spin across the wheel is a treat all on its own. But when you add the various bets you can make, it demonstrates just how much depth roulette actually has! One of these wagers is Neighbours, and is one of the most popular outside bets in roulette!
Your first step should be to determine whether or not you can make a Neighbour bet or not. For physical casinos, you do this by asking a dealer. Meanwhile, online games will usually state it in their rules whether or not you can place a Neighbour bet.
An easy way to check for online roulette games is whether or not they have a racetrack betting section. If they do, you will most likely be able to use it to make the Neighbour bet.
Select a Section
Once you’ve confirmed the wager is possible, your next step is to select a section of the wheel. A Neighbour bet is comprised of one number, and four numbers closest to it. If you’re playing European roulette, and you make a Neighbour bet on zero, it will include 3, 26, 0, 32 and 15.
The number itself, two numbers to its left, and two numbers to its right. The cost of a Neighbour bet is the same as manually wagering on all five numbers. So, if the minimum bet on your table is $1, you will have to stake $5 per each Neighbour bet you make.
How to Bet?
Making the wager itself varies depending on whether you’re playing in a physical casino, or online. For brick-and-mortar casinos, Neighbour falls under Announced Bets. That means you announce the bet to the dealer, and they’ll mark it up.
To make the bet, say “I’m betting on number X and its neighbours.” In online casinos, simply select the numbers and its neighbours to make the bet. Depending on which game you’re playing, you might also be able to increase or decrease the number of neighbours.
