Thanks to online casinos UK, roulette is now accessible to everyone, as long as you have an online casino account and a stable Internet connection, you can play online roulette from the comfort of your home.

How to play online roulette

Playing roulette online is no different to playing roulette in an actual physical casino.  The basic concept of the game is the same and quite easy to understand.

  1. A player will select how they wish to bet and make their bet, placing their chips where required.
  2. The dealer will spin the roulette wheel and drop the ball onto the wheel.
  3. Once the wheel stops spinning, the ball will land in one of the many pockets of the wheel (numbered 1 – 36, 0 and sometimes a double 0 depending on what version you are playing).
  4. The number the ball lands on will determine the winner of that round.
  5. The winning bets are then paid off and the losing bets are collected.

The Different Types of Roulette Bets

 

One of the most distinctive differences between American and European roulette is the presence of a single zero and a double zero. In the European version, the wheel only features a single zero, while the American version features both a single and a double zero. This changes the odds of each of the numbers landing in a slot on the wheel. Other versions that you may find at online casinos UK include French Roulette, Premier Roulette and Roulette Royale and all have slight variations on its rules.
