Online Roulette in a Nutshell

The two elements of online Roulette, as with its traditional land-based cousin, are the Roulette wheel and the table layout. There are 36 numbered red and black blocks on the table layout plus a 37th green block. These correspond to 37 numbered black and red tiles on the Roulette wheel, in which a small ball is placed before the wheel is spun. The objective of the online Roulette is to accurately predict the colour and number on which the ball will rest once the spinning of the wheel comes to a stop.

The Three Roulette Phases

Every Roulette game passes through three different phases: the betting phases, the spin, and the payout:

  • The betting phase: Players place their chips on their chosen block or blocks on the Roulette table layout to indicate where they expect the ball to land.
  • The spin: The ball is then placed inside the wheel, which is then made to spin, causing the ball to bounce from tile to tile until the wheel stops moving.
  • The payout: If players placed their chips on a winning number and colour in the betting phase, they will now be paid out in accordance with the size of their wagers. Payouts vary in size from one (for Black and Red bets) to 35 (for Straight-Up bets) times the amount wagered.

Different Roulette Bets

Like other table games, Roulette offers more than one way to place a wager. Beginners should probably stick to Straight bets for starters. Hedging your bets is also a good idea of inexperienced players or those with limited funds – try to cover as much of the table as possible with an equal number of chips on black and red and evenly spread across the numbers. In this way, you are likelier to break even, even if you don’t win.

Once you’ve got the hang of online Roulette, however, there are many more betting options to choose from:

  • Straight bet: Chips in the centre of any block.
  • Split bet: Chips between two neighbouring numbers.
  • Black/Red bet: Chips on either red or black.
  • Street bet: Chips on three numbers in a horizontal line.
  • Line bet: Chips on six numbers in two adjacent rows.
  • Corner bet: Chips on the meeting point between two lines to cover four numbers.
  • Dozen bet: Chips on one of three sets of 12 numbers: either 1 to 12, 3 to 24, or 25 to 36.
  • High/Low bet: Chips on all low (1-18) or all high (19-36) numbers.
  • Even/Odd bet: Chips on all odd or all even numbers.
  • Column bet: Chips covering any one of the three main columns.

How Roulette Came to Be

The most likely birthplace of Roulette was the Palais Royal Casino in Paris, France in the late 1700s. At that time, the wheels contained both single and double zeros and these were still red and black. In the early 19th Century these blocks were changed to green in order to eliminate confusion. Roulette reached Homburg, Germany, in 1843 and it was there that the double zero was removed and today’s most popular variant, European Roulette, was born. Later in that century, the game emerged in the US, where the wheel featured single and double zeros as well as an American eagle.
