CHAPTER VIII. page 8

The three large meadows on either side are for red and black, pair
and odd, miss and pass-- which last signify the division of the
numbers into the first and second half, from 1 to 18, and from 19
to 36, inclusive. If a number be staked upon and wins, the stake is
increased to six times its amount, and so on, always less as the
stake is placed in different positions, which may be effected in the
following ways--by placing the piece of gold or silver on the line
(_a cheval_, as it is called), partly on one and partly on its
neighbour, two numbers are represented, and should one win,
the piece is augmented to eighteen times the sum; three
numbers are signified upon the stroke at the end or beginning of
the numbers that go across; six, by placing the coin on the
border of a perpendicular and a horizontal line between two
strokes; four, where the lines cross within; twelve numbers are
signified in a two-fold manner, either upon the column where the
figures follow in the order of one, four, seven, and so on, or on
the side-fields mentioned above; these receive the stake trebled;
and those who stake solely upon the colour, the two halves, or
equal and odd, have their stake doubled when they win. Now, the
two zeros, that is, the simple and compound, stand apart and may
be separately staked upon; should either turn up, the stake is
increased in a far larger proportion.
