Roulette is one of the oldest and most popular games in casino history. In the 18th century, the game of roulette was evolved into the roulette game which we know today. Therefore it was only inevitable that the introduction of online casinos also led to the ability for online players to also be able to play live roulette. Online casino players were given a whole new experience in the method in which the game of roulette was being played while still following the same rules and regulations of traditional roulette.
Over the years since its introduction as a gambling table game, roulette has evolved as different types depending on the country in which it was being introduced and played. This may either be European Roulette, French Roulette or even American roulette. Although the difference in their rules is very slight they are still able to provide a player with an exciting feel for a game of luck. As mentioned earlier, with the passing of time and the changes in the economy players found it more and more difficult to travel to their closest land based casinos in order to play their favourite game of roulette. Therefore with the start of internet dependency, online casinos found a chance to provide players with the exceptional ability to play the game of roulette with real dealers from the comfort of their own homes. The way in which this is even made possible is thanks to the remarkable capability of online casino software utilised within their casinos games. Players are able to play live casino games with real live dealers directly through the internet. It is thanks to this variety of software that will depend on the means in which casinos transmit their live feeds. This means that online players are able to play simultaneously with real live dealers who are in direct transmission with the online casino. This transmission may differ depending on the dealers’ locations. There are some online casinos which may transmit a live freed directly from an actual land based casino and others which may transmit a live feed from a casino studio where dealers are seated specifically for online players. However no matter the location of the feed, players are able to sit at their computers, see a video screen of the live dealers’ dealings in real time, and play simultaneously in the hopes of winning large amounts as they would expect from a standard land based casino.
Live roulette is played in the same method in which it is played in a land based casino. The only difference would be that online players would need to log into their online casino account and through the use of real money deposited into that account they may begin to play casino games. Once they have done so, and have select the live roulette game, they are also given a choice of a number of tables with different table limits. This choice will depend on the minimum and maximum wagering limits which are allowed to be played by the players in a single round. It is important that players abide by these rules and stick to the table limits in order to ensure a fair and just game. More often than not, the live roulette is based on European roulette – the single zero roulette. This would mean that the setup of the roulette layout is slightly to that of let’s say the American roulette which also includes a double zero figure as a house number. Therefore once the online player has entered the table of the live roulette of their choice, they will be able to view the following setup. All that is needed to complete a successful roulette game is a roulette layout table, a roulette wheel and a small ball which spins within the roulette wheel to indicate the winning number. The roulette wheel will be made up of numbers from 0 to 36 where each one of them is sequenced in a particular order but not numerical. Each one of these numbers alternates between the colour red and black, while the zero is in the colour green in order to avoid confusion with it being the house number. The roulette layout will also be colour coded matching the colours of the numbers within the wheel. The only difference however will be that the numbers are in numerical order in three columns of three numbers. At the very top of the table will be the zero (0) which covers one row on its own. The main objective of the game is for online players to place bets on the live roulette layout in accordance to the table limits in the hopes that any one of the numbers they bet on will be revealed to be the winning number by the ball within the roulette wheel.
There are various types of bets a player may place in both real live roulette and casino roulette. These bets are either inside bets or outside bets. Inside bets, are bets placed directly on the numbered sections or the numbers themselves on the roulette layout. An example of such a bet is the split bet which will cover two numbers with one single bet split between two. On the other hand, outside bets are bets placed on marked boxes around the circumference of the layout which group a particular set of numbers together. An example of such a bet is the red or black bet which either cover all red or black numbers. But it is important to note that the higher the split of the bet among more number, the less the payout odds are. For more details on the payout ratios and odds, online players may refer to the rules and regulations within the game itself. Although live roulette is played online, it also requires players to transfer their real money into chips and cash out once they have finished playing their rounds. This means that any winnings obtained from the live roulette rounds, or any live casino games for that matter (including live blackjack and live baccarat), would need to be transferred back into their main account balances once they have transferred their chips out.
