Roulette has always been a staple casino game among many players, and it is perfectly suited to a live dealer platform. You only need a single table and croupier to play, so you will always find a table available somewhere!
With live roulette you are part of the action directly from a land-based casino, or purposefully designed studio, via live streaming. Bets are placed using virtual software, and you can watch an actual live dealer spinning the wheel. In addition, you can interact with both dealer and fellow players at your table via the live chat function.
The game starts with you placing one or more bets on the hopes of the ball landing in a particular area of the wheel. The dealer then spins the wheel and the ball will come to rest in one of the pockets. If one of your chosen areas are covered, you get paid according to the payout table.
The three most common formats of Live Dealer Roulette are European Roulette (single zero), French Roulette (single zero), and American Roulette (0,00). Looking at the theoretical return between these table types, the difference is quite significant with 94,74% for American Roulette, and 97,3% for European.
Other variants of Live Roulette include: Immersive Roulette, Speed Roulette, La Partage, Double Ball, Dual Play, Slingshot, and Lightning Roulette.
The betting system is the heart of Roulette and various selections can be made. Most newbies stick to odds or evens, red or black, or single numbers. Each bet has its own payout rate, covering a certain range of slots or numbers. Inside Bets are placed on numbered slots or the lines between them. Outside Bets are placed on the special boxes below and left of the board. See table below for a complete guide, along with your odds of winning between the two common styles.
