How to play live Roulette online
Roulette is one of the most popular casino games of all time. Ever since it was created accidentally in 1655 by French mathematician Blaise Pascal, the wheel has continued to evolve, spinning into the hearts of avid gamers across the world.
In the modern-day, thanks to the advancements in technology and countless devices on which online casinos can be enjoyed, Roulette is available to play at your fingertips, anywhere you have internet access – in real-time!
Join us as we take a look at how you can play live Roulette online, so the next time you log in to your favourite site, you can feel like a pro…
Choosing your game
There are so many varieties of Roulette available for you to play online that it can be hard to know where to start.
First up is the age-old American wheel vs European wheel debate, in which we would always recommend the single-zero European wheel for beginners – or anyone looking to spin with a lower house edge.
Next, is choosing the variation of Roulette you wish to play. You’ll find an array of themed games amongst the classics, including Mega Fire Blaze Roulette Live, Quantum Roulette Live and even gameshow-inspired Who Wants to be a Millionaire Live Roulette for a unique table-game experience.
Whatever game you choose, always check that the minimum and maximum bet requirements suit your budget, and if you have any promotions or offers for that particular site, that you select the game that’s eligible, if you wish to use it.
How to play
Now for the fun part. Once you’ve chosen the game you’d like to play, you’ll be greeted by a real-life professionally trained dealer, ready to host the game live from a specialist studio. State-of-the-art cameras and the latest technology will ensure the live stream runs smoothly.
Alongside the live dealer, there will be either a real-life Roulette wheel or a digitalised one, whose outcome is decided by the use of a Random Number Generator (RNG). More often than not, though, the wheel will be spun by the dealer themselves, with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software picking up every detail of gameplay and transferring it into data for you to witness the action in real-time.
When the game commences, you’ll be asked to place your bets. In live Roulette, you’ll find all the usual inside and outside bets that you would find at a land-based table, with the addition of Bet Builder and Lucky Dip features in some games, allowing you to save your favourite bets or generate random numbers for you to place your wager on for the ultimate game of chance. You might even find that you’ll have access to statistics from previous games in case you’re looking for potential patterns to place your bets on.
Gameplay works the same as it would if you were in a land-based establishment, with some games having the exciting addition of multipliers and bonus rounds that can be triggered if the ball lands in certain pockets.
Let’s not forget the live chat feature either! You can communicate with the live dealer and other players throughout the game for the ultimate authentic casino experience.
