Roulette is one of those rare casino games that are ideal for both novice players and seasoned casino enthusiasts. At land-based casinos Roulette usually attracts the largest crowd with multiple players all betting at the same time. At JackpotCity Casino, you can experience the same sense of excitement and big win opportunities with our range of online Roulette games. Powered by Microgaming software, our online Roulette games offer up state of the art graphics, smooth animation sequences and all the same betting options as the real thing.
The main difference between playing Roulette in a land based casino and online is how the results are produced. In a game of land based Roulette, a Roulette wheel is spun and a ball dropped into the wheel. When the wheel comes to a stop, the ball will fall into one of the slots, determining which bets will pay out. In the online version of the game, a Random Number Generator is used to determine which of the 37 or 38 numbers on the wheel will come up as the winning number. The results are then simulated on a virtual Roulette wheel to feel more like the real thing. At JackpotCity we also offer Live Roulette where a real dealer spins the wheel so you can choose how you want to play.
At JackpotCity all our random number generators are independently verified by external auditing companies. This means that you can always be sure that the results you see are 100% fair and accurate. In all other ways, playing Roulette online is pretty much the same as playing in a land-based casino. If you are new to the game, online Roulette is a casino table game with a large electronic betting table and a virtual Roulette wheel. The game buttons are situated at the bottom of the screen and the virtual chips on the side of the table.
To keep everyone happy, we offer a number of different online Roulette games for you to choose from. The most popular Roulette games include classic European Roulette, French Roulette and American Roulette. We also offer a few interesting variations in the form of multi-wheel Roulette, as well as a multiplayer Roulette game where players connect on the Microgaming network. Of these, European Roulette is the most frequently played as it offers a lower house edge compared to American Roulette with a large number of betting options.
While it is a casino table game, Roulette results are completely random and no strategy can change the outcome of where the ball will land or what number the RNG chooses. As such, almost all online Roulette strategies are centred on the betting. For anyone just starting out, the easiest bet to place is an even money bet. Here, there are three bets to choose from, namely the red/black bet, odd/even bet or high/low bet. With red/black bets, you simply choose which colour you think the ball will land on. The game goes with odd or even bets.
Online Roulette also offers a number of higher paying bets in the form of thirds or individual number bets. The highest payout comes from betting on a single number. In European Roulette this could be any number from 1-36 or betting on the 0 itself. To place a bet in online Roulette, you can click on the virtual chips and place them anywhere on the electronic betting table. You can place a single bet or multiple bets across the entire table.
Once you are happy with your bets, you can click on the spin button. The Roulette wheel will then begin to spin and the ball will drop into one of the slots, determined by the RNG. Once the wheel has come to a stop, the game will automatically pay out any winning bets. There are many different betting strategies used in Roulette, the most popular being the Martingale system. All Roulette betting systems do however rely on a high table limit and a generous bankroll.
