Originating in France in the early 17th century, ‘Roulette’ translates as ‘Little Wheel’, describing the layout and mechanism of the game. It all started when a probability student called Pascal created a spinning wheel game that could involve paid bets. The first wheel was numbered from 1-36 with a single zero, but it looked very different to the ones we use today, with numbered pockets for the ball bearing to land in rather than sleek numbered slots. As the game grew in popularity, a few amendments took place; the wheel was redesigned with slots, providing players with a fairer game. When the game travelled overseas to America, a double zero slot was added, and this was the commonly adopted wheel in the U.S., providing additional betting opportunities. By the time the 20th century arrived, Roulette was one of the top casino games in the world. Further advancements were made possible with the advent of modern technology; more games were created, such as Roulette Pro, Premium French Roulette, and Mini Roulette. In addition, progressive jackpots were added, with some of the world’s biggest jackpots up for grabs. And finally, thanks to the internet, people could play in the comfort of their own home for free or for real money. Online Roulette is the fastest, fairest and most riveting way to play, without geographical restrictions or travel costs, so you can enjoy your favourite form of online entertainment at any time that suits you and your busy lifestyle.
An exciting wheel-based game, when you play online Roulette, the outcome of the game is decided by a spinning wheel lined with numbers; wherever the ball bearing stops, that number wins, and if your bet includes that number, you receive a payout! Start by placing your bets on the clearly marked table on your screen. This table displays some of the bets available to you, but it is impossible to show every bet, as this would make the betting table far too confusing. Hover over different areas of the table and you’ll see more betting options will be highlighted. Our software can help you make your selection; it will show you what numbers are included in a bet such as a Corner bet by highlighting those numbers and also displaying the payout amount if that bet wins. To place your bet, click on the chip denomination you wish to use and then click on the area of the table that corresponds with your preferred bet or bets. Each click adds one chip, and if you make a mistake, you can hit the Clear button. When you are happy with the bets you have placed, hit Spin. The wheel will turn, and the number it lands on determines whether you have won a payout. Our software will highlight all winning bets on the screen and pay any winnings due to you directly to your bankroll.
The following tips are designed to help improve your time at the wheel and enhance your overall experience as you play at our online casino.
Manage Your Money: When you play real money games, it doesn’t matter what stake level you play at, you need to make sure that your bankroll is maximized at all times.

Also balance your bets evenly so you are more likely to reap some rewards.
Learn The Rules: You might be itching to play, but it will benefit your game immensely if you take a bit of time to learn the games rules first. With online Roulette, you have many different types of bets you can place, and you can place multiple bets also – studying these before you spin the wheel will help you to make informed choices, widen your spread to improve your chances of winning, and make the overall game much more fun.
