Australian Gambling Terms and Slang: Gamble Aussie Style

Gambling Terms

Australian Gambling Slang Terms: Comprehensive Guide

Gambling is an ever-expanding branch of industry in different regions around the world. Numerous casino and lottery games have been on the gambling scene for decades, even centuries. Nowadays, in addition to the land-based venues, we have a vast number of online casinos as well. The progressive development of this activity has resulted in the creation of the new terminology typical of gambling.

The matter has become even more complex due to every region inventing its own slang terms to describe various gambling features. Just think of all the words that all mean slot machine — fruities, puggies, and of course, pokies. The last one has originated in the Land Down Under, that happens to be rich in gambling slang. 

Since Australian gambling terms can be difficult to understand if you are not a native of the country, we have assembled a comprehensive glossary that will help you fit right in when you enter a gambling venue in Australia. We have divided the terms into several categories, depending on a game to which they are relevant so that you can easily navigate through them.

Roulette game casino

Our final list contains all the terms related to Roulette that have not already been mentioned in the section regarding casino terminology in general.

  • Black or Red — An even-money bet on all the numbers of one colour.

  • Double-Zero Roulette — American Roulette. The name originated from the layout of this particular version of the game, which features a double-zero slot in addition to the standard zero slot.

This rule, much like the “La Partage” rule, decreases the house edge by 50%.
  • Even-Money Wager — A type of bet (red/black, high/low, and odd/even) that implies a 1:1 payout. Your chances with an even-money bet are good, but they are not 50%–50%, as the zero slots (two of them, if you are playing American Roulette), decreases your odds to 48.6% or 47.4% in European and American Roulette respectively.

  • Layout — The betting section on the Roulette table.
  • Orphelin Cheval — An announced bet which requires five chips in total. You need to cover the following numbers in order to place this bet: 1, 6, 9, 14, 17, 20, 31, and 34.

  • Outside Bet — Wagers you place in the outer section of the layout. They comprise even-money bets, columns, and dozens. The odds are better in comparison to the ones implied by the inside bet. However, that means that the payouts are smaller.
