Online Roulette Games
Roulette is a favorite choice among online casino Table Games. It is a game where chance can be rewarding, with big wins for you. You can be especially lucky if you bet on a single number, or on a specific color. Below you can learn about the major types of Roulette Games.
For playing Classic Roulette, you must buy credits. During the game you can purchase more credits, too. When you exit the game, the funds you have will be saved and transferred to your balance. You can cash out amounts while you are in the game.
That is the way you can bet: choose a chip value, and a number on which you want to place your bet on, then click on the number. When you wager, your amount must be at least equal to the minimum amount, and not larger than the maximum limit for the table. After placing you wager, you must click on the Spin button. You must strive to anticipate where the ball will finally land on the wheel. Consult the paytable: there you can see the displayed bets and paybacks.
You can place your wagers by left clicking the mouse on the spot selected. With one click you place one chip on the spot. The top chip in the stack will show the total amount for the bet. You can remove a wager by pressing on the keyboard and simultaneously left clicking. You can also remove all your wagers by using the Clear Bets button.
In European Roulette, the wheel has the numbers 0 to 36 displayed. The winning odds in this type are 1 to 37. In European Roulette, compared to American Roulette, the winning odds are higher, but the stakes are very reduced. In it, the house edge is 2.7%. So when you play the European variant, your losses will be smaller if you happen to lose. The number placements on the wheel are assigned at random.
Another peculiarity of this type of Roulette is that there are many formalities. Firstly, when you play it, you can pay the croupier so that the ball will start from your chosen spot on the wheel. Another peculiarity is the “la partage” rule. According to it, after a spin of 0, you can leave your bet on the same spot where you first placed it before the 0 spin: this is called leaving your bet “in prison”. This is done so that you can try to recover the loss.
In this type, the wheel design is different from the design of the European variant. There is a 00 pocket, besides the other spots. So the house advantage is higher if you compare it to the European variant: it is 5.27%, and the larger number of spots contributes for that. The winning odds are 1 to 38.
Another peculiarity here is that the numbers are placed in a logical order, opposite each other, for example you find 9 opposite 10, etc.
Many people believe that French Roulette is the original, the first version of that game. It is widely popular not only in France, but in the United Kingdom too. The house edge is the same as for European Roulette: 2.7%. The boxes for the pockets on the wheel are all red colored. The words and numbers on the table are in French.
In this variant, you will have different winning chances. This is due to the “la partage” rule.In the French variant the players who use the even money bet all stand great winning chances. If the ball lands in the 0 pocket, the players who have made bets will get half of their amounts. In such case the house edge drops to 1.35%.
Thanks to the higher chances of winnings for you and, too, for increasing your stake, it is better, if you are a new gamer, to try French roulette, before you try the other variants.
You will find Mini Roulette has a lot in common with American and French Roulette variants. The difference is in the number of spaces on the table, and in the odds. This game is a smaller version of the classic variant, with fewer numbers. The winning chance is 1 to 13. When the ball lands on 0, you will get 50% payback.
Besides the higher odds, this type is great if you want to practice your skills, and do some casual gaming while you are playing other games on an online casino, or watching a sportsbook.

Multi Wheel Roulette
In this variant, you must guess where the ball will land on one, or on more of the wheels that spin during the game. The limits for the wagers apply per wheel. You can put chips into different areas simultaneously, in order to bet. The default is that all the roulette wheels are active. But you can deactivate some of them, up to five wheels.
