Roulette is one of the oldest, most sophisticated and best-loved casino games in the world. Now we bring you world-class games that you can play on your mobile device, anytime and anywhere.
Our mobile Roulette games are of the same incredible quality as our online Roulette games have always been, but they are perfectly optimised for play on smartphones and tablets. And, supported by robust Microgaming software, will play perfectly on your Android, Apple or other device.
Not only do we give you the choice of playing online or playing on your mobile device, and of playing on any mobile device and operating system that you want to, we also give you the option of downloading and installing our casino app (for free!) or playing directly through your web browser (also free, of course!).
Whether the increased memory space that browser-based play allows or the wider range of games and services that comes with downloaded apps is more important to you is a personal choice. What we’ve done at JackpotCity is leave it up to you to make.
You can also choose whether you want to play for free or for real money. Playing free is a great way to try out new strategies and polish your Roulette skills, so that when you play for real money you put our fantastic bonuses to better use and stand a higher chance of winning our exceptional payouts!
However Roulette is played, whether on land, online or on mobile devices, the structure and objective of the game is always the same. A wheel is spun, and a ball is dropped onto it. The wheel is divided into numbered segments, and you need to bet on where the ball will land when the wheel comes to rest.
In real-life and live dealer casino games, this is done with an actual wheel and an actual ball. In other online and mobile Roulette games, Random Number Generation and animations simulate the action well. At JackpotCity, of course, our graphics are world-class and out Random Number Generation is independently endorsed by eCOGRA.
You place your bet by moving your virtual chips from the bottom of the screen to the area on the Roulette table that designates the bet that you want to place. The panels on the wheel that are numbered from 1 to 36 are alternately coloured in red and black, though they are not arranged in alphabetical order, and there is also a green panel numbered 0.
In American versions of the game, an additional green panel numbered 00 is also featured. Since you lose automatically if the ball lands in a green panel, unless you have bet on the 0 or 00, this creates a house edge in all Roulette games and a bigger edge in American Roulette games.
You can place quite general or quite specific bets in Roulette, with the odds and potential rewards getting higher as you get more exact. The more general bets are on the perimeter of the Roulette table so they are called Outside Bets, while the more specific wagers are the Inside Bets beyond those. As a general guideline, we suggest starting with the Outside Bets and trying European Roulette before American Roulette.
The Outside Bets you can place have an almost 50/50 chance of winning. You can bet on whether the ball will land on a red or a black panel; on an odd or even panel; or on a panel numbered from 1 to 18 or 19 to 36. As you get a little more proficient, you can place multiple Outside Bets too.
Inside bets include betting which of 3 sets of 12 numbers the ball will fall in, and go all the way up to the exact number of the panel that it will finish in. It all depends how brave or how lucky you are feeling!
