Online Roulette was first brought to light in the mid-nineties when the internet first started to flourish and it's safe to say the reputation of roulette has grown ever since ... and it certainly doesnt look as though its reputation will falter any time soon! There are a number of variants out three but the most popular are European and American Roulette online games which are generally available in both single player and multi player forms. Until recently you could only play roulette against a computer program but you can now play roulette live online against a live dealer.
It is important that you know how to play. So here is a quick guide.
Betting: Your chips will be stacked by denomination (£ 1, £ 5, £ 25, £ 100, £ 500) at the bottom of the game screen. You select the amount you would like to wager on a given hand by clicking the left mouse button on the chip of that condemnation. This activates that specific chip denomination. Next, place your bet on the Roulette table by clicking on a bet field. To specify a bet that is not equal to an existing chip denomination, simply click on another chip designation after placing your previous chip on the table. You spin the roulette wheel by pressing the "SPIN" button in the bottom left corner of the screen or by clicking on the roulette wheel.
You can place nine different kinds of bets on the Roulette table. Each type of bet covers a certain range of numbers, and each type has its own payoff rate. The short lines of three numbers each are called rows on the board, while the longer lines, each holding twelve, are called columns. The first six types of bet are all made on the numbered space or on the lines between them and are called inside bets, while the last three types are made on the special boxes below and to the right of the board and are called outside bets.
An explanation of these bets is below:
Split Bet: Place your chips on the line between any two numbers.
Straight Up: Place your chips directly on any single number (including zero and double-zero).
Corner Bet: Place your chips at the corner where four numbers meet. All four numbers are covered.
Five Bet: This bet can be made in only one place and covers five numbers: zero, one, two and three. Place your chips at the end of the row between the numbers 00 and 3.
Street Bet: Place your chips at the end of any row of numbers. A street bet covers three numbers.
Line Bet: Place your chips at the end of two rows at the intersection between them. A line bet covers all the numbers in either row, for a total of six.
Column Bet Placing a chip in one of the boxes marked "2 to 1" at the end of the columns covers all the numbers in that column, a total of twelve. (Either the zero nor the double zero are covered by any of the columns).
Dozen Bet: Placing a chip in one of the three boxes marked "1st 12," "2nd 12," or "3rd 12" covers those twelve numbers.
Red / Black, Even / Odd, 1 to 18/19 to 36: A chip placed in one of the six boxes at the bottom of the board covers the half of the board described in that box. (The zero and double zero are not covered by any of these boxes.) Each box covers eighteen numbers.
When the ball lands on "zero" or "double zero", wagers on red, black, odd, even, 1 to 18, and 19 to 36 are not entirely lost. Instead, each player having made such a bet will lose only half of the original amount bet.
Know you know the rules I wish you luck but before you go and find the best place to play roulette live online here is one tip for when you play: roulette is a game of chance, play wisely and do not gamble more than you can afford to lose.
