Play Online Roulette

Roulette dates back to the 18th century and is a popular casino games option that is often depicted in the movies due to its glamour, mystery and excitement that it invokes. Its popularity also stems from the fact that it has simple rules and is easy to understand. However, don’t be mistaken. Roulette has some depth based on the variation of the game you choose to play.

First things first

Roulette means “little wheel” in French and just as the name suggests, it’s a wheel that has numbered pockets ranging from 0 to 36 making it a total of 37 numbers and is the most popular table games variation in the world. It originated from France and although it’s mostly based on luck, you have control over which number to place your bet. Beside the wheel, is a table that also has the same sequenced numbers in different slots, coloured in black or red, grouped in even and odd numbers, placed in one of the 3 rows, and grouped between numbers 1-18 or 19-36.

You can place bets that correlate with the slots as you spin the wheel and hope that little ivory ball will land in numbers you have selected. There are so many bets you can place on Roulette with various paying odds. The ball spins clockwise while the wheel spins in the opposite direction after which the wheel stops and the ball falls in one of the 37 slots.

Types of Roulette

The three main types of games including:

  1. American Roulette: It offers a double 0 on the table meaning you can have an extra number to bet on. This means that the house edge (house advantage) also increases.
  2. European Roulette: It is mostly played at land-based casinos and the house edge is smaller compared to the American roulette.
  3. French Roulette: It is best to play from a player’s perspective and is very similar to the European version. It has the La Partage (the divide) rule whereby if the ball lands on zero, all the even money bets are divided by two and half of it is returned to the players account automatically.
