What is ‘Six Line/Double Street’?
The ‘six line bet’ is a roulette bet which stretches across six of the 36 available numbers. It is also known as the ‘double street bet’, because a single line is nicknamed a ‘street’ and this bet covers two of those streets. Six line bets have a 5/1 chance of success, and there are 11 different choices for ‘double streets’ on the betting grid within the casino.
‘Six Line/Double Street’ Explained
In the game of roulette, players bet on which number will be called by the roulette wheel. As well as choosing single numbers, players can bet on colours and groups of numbers, with different payouts depending on the chance of that outcome occurring. In European roulette, there are 36 numbers plus an additional zero, while American Roulette adds a further double zero.
Players can bet on number combinations by laying their bets across the dividing lines of multiple numbers on the grid. One such bet is the ‘street bet’, which is any of the lines of three numbers running horizontally across the grid. Players make this bet by placing their chips at the edge of the number grid, on the dividing line next to the first of the three numbers. There are 12 of these ‘line bets’ or ‘street bets’.
Players can also make the ‘double street bet’, also known as the ‘six line bet’. This is a bet on six numbers, which is made by placing the street bet on the dividing line between the bets. If one of the six numbers in that group comes up when the wheel is spun, the six line bet wins. This bet pays at a rate of 5/1 and there are 11 points on the board where this bet can be made. Any six numbers spaced across two rows can form a double street bet.
