Let’s start by going through all the possible roulette sector bets.
Importantly, these are not actually new types of bets. Most of them essentially just combine several regular roulette bets into one big whole. If you need help understanding basic roulette bets, check out this guide.
Needless to say, we also assume you’re already familiar with how to play roulette at a live casino.
Zero Bets in Roulette
Let’s start with the so-called zero bets. There are two of them in total, but they’re quite similar.
- Jeu Zero is a roulette bet that covers seven numbers 12 to 15 on the wheel. To bet on Jeu Zero, you will need to split your stake into 4 units. Then, use them to place the following bets:
- 3 Splits on 0-3, 12-15, and 32-35
- 1 Straight Up bet on 26
- Voisins du Zero covers 17 numbers, which are on the wheel between 22 and 25. The bet splits your stake into 9 units and places it as follows:
- 5 Splits with 1 unit each on 4-7, 12-15, 18-21, 19-22, and 32-35
- 1 Corner with 2 units on 22-26-28-29
- 1 Trio with 2 units on 0-2-3. Trio is not a common roulette bet, so we’ll note that it pays 11:1.
The Voisins bet in Roulette is essentially an extended Jeu Zero. Typically, the words “Zero Bet” is used to point at Jeu Zero, while Voisins du Zero is simply referred to as Voisins. That’s how you’ll encounter these in most live roulette interfaces, too.

Tiers in Roulette
The sector of the racetrack called Tiers refers to Le Tiers du Cylindre, which translates to “third of the wheel”. As you might expect, this bet covers a third of the wheel and a total of 12 numbers.
The Tiers bet in roulette is the simplest Sector bet because it consists of only 6 Split bets. It divides your stake into 6 equal parts and places them on splits 5-8, 10-11, 13-16, 23-24, 27-30, and 33-36.
In roulette, the Orphans bet refers to Orphelins, a type of 5-part multi bet on the racetrack view.
The Orhpelins bet in roulette covers all the sections on the wheel not covered by Zero or Tiers bets. This means that it includes two parts of the wheel not connected to each other. Specifically, it covers parts of the wheel between numbers 17 to 6 and 1 to 9.
The Orhpelins bet splits your stake into 5 equal parts and places it on the following bets:
- 4 Splits on 6-9, 14-17, 17-20, 31-34
- 1 Straight up on 1
Note that the number 17 is covered twice, which means you get a 35:1 payout if it wins.
The last type of bet that we’re going to cover does not target specific numbers. Instead, it’s intended to allow you to target any part of the wheel you want. However, number combinations are based on the pocket’s physical location and not the standard betting table.
The Neighbors bet in Roulette selects one number and places Straight Up bets on that number plus 4 numbers directly surrounding it on the racetrack view/the wheel. For example, a Neighbors bet on 5 places five equal Straight Up bets on 23, 10, 5, 24, and 16.
To find out what a Neighbors bet will be like, just take a look at either the wheel or the racetrack. Pick out the number you want, and look at the two numbers immediately to its left and the two numbers immediately to its right. These 5 are the numbers included in a Neighbors bet.
From the standpoint of probability, there is no difference between Neighbors and other combinations of 5 Straight Up bets. The idea is to be able to quickly and easily target parts of the wheel. This is the main advantage of Neighbours in roulette.
