Don't know how to fix... Index in position 1 exceeds array bounds (must not exceed 1)

Hello--
I keep getting this error and i've tried to fix it for so long. it is occuring on lines between the lines specified bellow (I bolded them). If anyone can figure out why I would appreciate it. I know it is an indexing error, but I can't figure out where I messed up.
inputs
%Roulette
RouletteRounds = 10;
RoulettePlayers = zeros(RouletteRounds+1,10);
initial_intt = randi([5000,25000],1,10);
RoulettePlayers(1,:) = initial_intt
Bet = zeros(1,10);
BetType = zeros(3,10);
code (look bellow for lines where error is occuring)
for l = 1:RouletteRounds
x = (randi([2 12],1,10)) *.01; %random number between 2-12%
Bet = x .* RoulettePlayers(l,:); %creates a vector Bet that is 2-12% of in pocket cash
for ll = 1:RouletteRounds
if RoulettePlayers(1,ll) > 100 %if cash is greater than 100
if Bet(1,ll) < 100 %enters if statement: if bet is less than 100, = 100
Bet(1,ll) = 100;
else
end
else
Bet(1,ll) = 0;
end
end %2nd for loop
BetType(1,:) = randi([-4,-1],1,10);
for r = 1:RouletteRounds %for loop creating different bets and the intervals
if BetType(1,r) == -3
BetType(2,r) = randi([0,36])
elseif BetType(1,r) == -4
BetType(2,r) = randi([0,36])
BetType(3,r) = randi([0,36])
end
end
Roll = randi([0,36],1,10)
%9 compare the actual roll and seeing if they made money
for t = 1:RouletteRounds
if BetType(1,t) == -3
if Roll(1,t) == BetType(2,t) %if bet is equal to bettype column 2
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) + Bet(l,t)*36
else
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) - Bet(l,t)
end
elseif BetType(1,t) == -4
if Roll(1,t) == BetType(2,t) || Roll(1,t) == BetType(3,t) %if bet is equal to bettype column 2,3
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) + Bet(l,t)*18
else
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) - Bet(l,t)
end
elseif BetType(1,t) == -1
if Roll(1,t) == 1:18
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) + Bet(l,t)
else
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) - Bet(l,t)
end
elseif BetType(1,t) == -2
if Roll(1,t) == 19:36
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) + Bet(l,t)
else
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) - Bet(l,t)
end
end
end
HouseEarnings = HouseEarnings + (sum(RoulettePlayers(1,:)) - sum(RoulettePlayers(end,:)))
end %(1st for loop)
The error is mainly occuring on these lines within the loop:
if BetType(1,t) == -3
if Roll(1,t) == BetType(2,t) %if bet is equal to bettype column 2
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) + Bet(l,t)*36
else
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) - Bet(l,t)
end
elseif BetType(1,t) == -4
if Roll(1,t) == BetType(2,t) || Roll(1,t) == BetType(3,t) %if bet is equal to bettype column 2,3
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) + Bet(l,t)*18
else
RoulettePlayers(l+1,t) = RoulettePlayers(l,t) - Bet(l,t)
end

The problem is the ‘Bet’ subscript. It is a (1 x 10) vector, not a matrix, so it should have only one subscript, not two.
