In land casino based roulette games there are some bets that are not shown on the table layout. Players who want to place the bets have to call out to the croupier. Therefore these bets have come to be known as call bets. Since these bets were first offered in French casinos their French names have stuck. Some online casinos offer versions of roulette in which these call bets are offered. One such version is Microgaming's European Roulette Gold. This article explains some of these bets and how they can be accessed.

European Roulette Gold can be played in two modes - the regular mode and the expert mode. In the regular mode only three of the more common call bets are shown on the layout. These are Les Voisins Du Zero, Tiers Du Cylindre and Les Orphelins. The complete range of call bets can be had in the expert mode. In order to access the expert mode players need to click on the "EXPERT" button in the bottom toolbar. In the expert mode the call bets can be accessed by clicking on the "CALL BETS" button in the bottom left corner.

Red Splits covers red numbers that appear one below another on the normal roulette layout. There are four such combinations, which are 9 and 12, 16 and 19, 18 and 21 and 27 and 30. One chip is placed on each of the combinations making a total of four chips for the bet. Black Splits covers black numbers that appear side by side or one below another on the normal roulette layout. There are seven such combinations, which are 8 and 11, 10 and 11, 10 and 13, 17 and 20, 26 and 29, 28 and 29 and 28 and 31. One chip is placed on each of the combinations making a total of seven chips for the bet.

There are two bets centered on 0. These bets cover 0 and its neighboring numbers as they appear on the roulette wheel. The more common one is Les Voisins Du Zero or The Neighbors of Zero. This bet covers the numbers that lie between 22 and 25 on the wheel, including these two numbers. The chips are placed as follows. Two chips are placed on the trio of 0, 2 and 3. One chip is placed on each of the following two number combinations that appear one below the other: 4 and 7, 12 and 15, 18 and 21, 19 and 22, 25 and 28, 26 and 29 and 32 and 35. A total of 9 chips are wagered. Jeu Zero or Zero game covers a smaller range of numbers about 0. The chips are placed as follows: one chip on 0 and 3, one chip on 12 and 15, one chip on 26 and one chip on 32 and 35. In all four chips are wagered.

There are two bets covering other ranges on the roulette wheel. One is Tiers Du Cylindre. The number range covered lies on the opposite side of the wheel and numbers covered lie between 27 and 33, including these two numbers. One chip each is placed on the following two number combinations: 5 and 8, 10 and 11, 13 and 16, 23 and 24, 27 and 30 and 33 and 36. In all six chips are wagered. Les Orphelins covers the remaining two split ranges. One chip is placed on 1 and one chip each is placed on the following two number combinations: 6 and 9, 14 and 17, 17 and 20 and 31 and 34. In all five chips are wagered. Microgaming's European Roulette Gold offers a variation of the Orphelins bet known as Orphelin Plein. In this variation one chip is placed on each of the single numbers covered. In all eight chips are wagered. Other call bets include Finales en Plein and Finales A Cheval. These are based on the last digits of the selected numbers.

The payout on call bets is the payout for the individual chip wagered. A chip placed on a trio of numbers will payout at 11 to 1, a chip placed on split numbers will payout at 17 to 1 and a chip placed on a single number will payout at 35 to 1.
