Playing Roulette online

Roulette is a hugely popular online game and is played by millions of gamblers worldwide. You play it on the Roulette wheel which is divided into several numbered sections. Some Roulette versions have sections from 0 to 36, while others have a double zero as well. The game starts by revolving this wheel and dropping a ball upon it.

Basics of the game

Every game has a betting table which carries all the numbers printed on the Roulette wheel. Some numbers on this table are classified under Inside Bets, while others are considered for Outside Bets. For example, bets placed on individual numbers are Inside Bets. When you place bets on two or three numbers, those bets are also Inside Bets.

Odd and Even numbers, black and red numbers, etc. are counted in Outside Bets. Though these bets have higher odds, the associated payouts are low. For example, the maximum payout in an Outside Bet is 2:1. This means you earn $2 for every $1 you have staked. Payouts from Inside bets on individual numbers are as high as 16:1.

Roulette bets- Odds and Payouts

Let's look at some Roulette bets and their odds. If you bet on a Red or a Black number, your payout would be 1:1. The odds, in this case, would be less than 50/50 because the 0 or 00 is neither Red nor Black. A High Bet means you are placing bets on any number between 19-36.

Straight Up, Split and Street Bets

Place a bet on any single number; the payout would be 35:1. In a Split Bet, you are placing bets on a line separating two numbers (2/5, 1/2, 13/14, etc.). The payout is 17:1. Street Bets are laid on a row containing 3 numbers (1,2,3, etc.), and the payout is 11:1. Please continue reading.

Kinds of Roulette

There are 3 kinds of Roulette - French, European, and American. The odds are somewhat different in each of these versions. One Roulette wheel may have just one Zero, while another one may also have a slot for Double Zero. This means that odds are somewhat different in both the two Roulette machines.

American versus European Roulette

The European Roulette wheel has just one Zero and numbers from 1 to 36. As a result, when you bet on any individual number, the odds are 1/35. In the American version, there is an additional slot for a Double Zero. This means that here, the corresponding odds are 1/37, which is much worse than the European version.

Roulette and its bonuses

Since Roulette is a high risk and high payout game, you should claim your bonus whenever it is possible. Start by claiming your welcome bonus upon signing-up with your casino. Make sure that this bonus can be used on Roulette. This is important to note because casinos often restrict the bonus usage.

In most cases, you would have to pay a certain deposit to claim your welcome bonus. This deposit could be as low as $10. However, there are a few gambling sites that might give your free Roulette welcome bonuses. When you have played enough games and spent enough money on your casino, you might get other rewards as well.

Other things to consider

Make sure that you have read all the casino rules before signing up. Understanding the bonus rules is very important. Read up all the information about the betting limits. Every casino has its own betting limit, whether maximum or minimum. You should also understand that your casino might change or withdraw your bonus any moment.

About payment channels

It's better to play Roulette on a casino having multiple payment channels. This gives you the necessary flexibility while gambling. Payment channels can be classified into E-wallets, Prepaid Cards, Credit or Debit Cards, Bank Transfers, and even Crypto Wallets. The main payment gateways are Visa, Mastercard, Bitcoin, Trustly, American Express, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, etc.
