Why, hello there! Thinking about taking a peek at online roulette? Jump on into our marvellous range of roulette games to discover why this is one of the most popular casino games in the world.
Whether you’re new to roulette and you’re looking for some information on how to play, or you’re after the latest version to hit the screens, we have plenty of exciting tables ready to join. Go on, spin the wheel…
While there are lots of splendid spin-offs of online roulette available to pick from, the basic roulette rules are usually the same, with a couple of tweaks here and there.
The main aim of all roulette games is to correctly predict which numbered pocket the ball will fall in on the wheel once it stops spinning. Your prediction is represented by chips, which are wagers placed on the table. After deciding where you think the ball will land, place your wager on the corresponding area of the table.
Once you’ve placed your wager, the host will drop the ball in the wheel and set it spinning. If your guess was correct, then you win!
There are different types of roulette bets you can pick from while you’re waiting for the wheel to stop spinning. From certain numbers to colours of the pockets, there are plenty of options to choose from.
The main categories to remember are ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ bets. Inside bets are called ‘inside’ because they cover a single number or a small set of numbers that are found on the inner part of the roulette table. Outside bets are found on the outer part of the table and usually cover categories like red/black numbers, even/odd numbers and even larger groups of numbers, such as entire columns or rows. An example of this would be a Corner bet, which covers a group of four numbers.
Since Outside bets cover more areas on the table, these are thought to be less risky than Inside bets, since there’s a greater chance of the ball stopping in a numbered pocket covered by the Outside bet. It’s worth remembering though, that lower risk can also mean lower payouts, but that’s not to say you can’t still scoop a marvellous prize!
For a little added fun, many European versions of online roulette also offer special ‘French’ bets. These bets include Voisins du Zéro (neighbours of zero), Tiers du Cylindre (a third of the wheel) and Orphelins (the orphans). Each of these wagers present a grand opportunity for players to place complex bets quickly, so larger areas of the wheel can be covered with just one wager.
Covering the largest part of the wheel is the Voisins wager, which lets you wager on 17 pockets on either side of zero, starting with 22 and ending with 25. On the opposite side of the wheel is the Tiers du Cylindre wager – this covers the third of the wheel from numbers 27 to 33. All other areas of the wheel are then covered by the Orphelins wager.
You can also discover some marvellous side bet options in our collection of games, which can offer different chances to pocket a prize!
The odds of winning a prize in online roulette depends on the type of wager you decide to place. The highest odds can be found in Inside bets, but you can cover more numbers with the Outside bets.
|Straight Up||Just one, single pocket||Up to 35:1|
|Split||Two numbers directly next to each other on the table||17:1|
|Street||A row of three numbers directly next to each other on the table||11:1|
|Corner||A square of four numbers directly next to each other on the table||8:1|
|Dozen/Column||A group of 12 numbers on the table||2:1|
|Odd/Even||All odd or even numbers on the wheel||1:1|
|Red/Black||All red or black numbers on the wheel||1:1|
|1-18/19-36||All numbers in the respective ranges on the table||1:1|

Roulette may be splendidly simple but that doesn’t stop players looking for the best tips and tricks to winning a game online. There are several strategies that are thought to help players bag a better prize, either by playing roulette smarter or by finding the safest roulette betting options.
The most popular roulette betting strategy is thought to be the Martingale system, which suggests players can profit by doubling their bet every time they lose, so that when a win eventually occurs, the money is made back.
If you’ve been looking for the safest roulette strategy, then you may have stumbled upon the Fibonacci system. Compared to other strategies, many like to argue that this is the safest, since it advises players to place fairly low-value wagers.
Based on the Fibonacci sequence of numbers (each number in the sequence equals the sum of the last two), players wager the same amount of money as the current number in the sequence on Even/Odd, Red/Black and 1-18/19-36 bets. You might have also heard of the Parlay online roulette strategy, which encourages players to only wager their profits to limit any losses.
We could talk about plenty of other strategies, from the James Bond to the D’Alembert options, but the main thing to remember is that each strategy will vary in their level of risk and, since roulette is a game of chance, there is no real way to be certain that a strategy works.

European roulette and American roulette are both very similar games. When you play American roulette though, you might spot a key difference on the wheel! Unlike the European roulette wheel, which features just one ‘zero’ pocket, the American wheel has two.
Since roulette is a game of chance, it’s impossible to know if you will win or lose until the ball lands in a pocket. The betting options that offer the best odds of winning are the Even/Odd, Red/Black, 1-18/19-36 Outside bets, which all offer a payout of 1:1.
You can also look for games that offer the best return on your wager (RTP). Our roulette games with the best RTP are:
European Roulette - 98.65%
American Roulette - 97.37%
10p Roulette - 97.30%
Online roulette is simple enough to play without needing a strategy. There are plenty of strategies used by players, from spread-betting to the Martingale strategy, which are all popular for one reason or another.
Each of the strategies have a varying level of risk involved though, and there’s no way to know if you will win or not. The smartest way to play roulette is to only wager as much as you are comfortable with – take a look at the gaming tools we offer to help tailor your playing experience.
It is possible to place a wager on every single number of the wheel, but it doesn’t make sense to do so because of the house edge. The best-value betting option is to place a wager on a single number on the wheel, which will pay out 35x your stake.
The five-number bet is relatively niche, since it’s only available on American versions. This bet covers the five numbers on the top row (0, 00, 1, 2 and 3).
Even before online casinos existed, roulette was a firm favourite with casino players across the world. First introduced by a French mathematician, Blaise Pascal, in the 17th century, the roulette wheel was originally intended to be a perpetual motion machine. The invention may have failed but the wheel went on to form one of the most iconic casino games ever.
Today, we bring the casino atmosphere right to you with our marvellous online games featuring real dealers and exciting betting options. So you can experience the wonder of Las Vegas on your phone, tablet or desktop from your own home!
