Play all the online roulette variations
There are several ways to play and enjoy roulette online, and you can try them all at JackpotCity, from classic online roulette to unique versions such as Vinnie Jones Roulette. The original variation is known as French roulette, “roulette” meaning “little wheel”. This is the original roulette game that was invented in Paris, France, during the 18th century, and French roulette table rules haven’t changed much since then. The dealer asks players to place their bets, then spins a wheel with pockets numbered 1-36 plus a zero pocket, then sends a ball spinning around the wheel in the opposite direction. Gradually the wheel loses momentum and the ball comes to rest in a pocket. If the pocket number corresponds to a bet, it’s a win. If the ball lands on zero, everybody loses.
Speaking of the zero pocket, French roulette has some special rules related to it. If you make an even-money bet and the ball lands on zero, the “la partage” (“sharing”) rule gives you half your bet back. Alternatively, you can use the “en prison” (“in prison”) rule to take the same bet again the next spin. If you win, you get your whole stake back.
European roulette is practically identical to French roulette except that it doesn’t have the “la partage” and “en prison” rules.
American roulette table rules are different from French and European roulette because the roulette wheel has two zero pockets. This increases the total number of pockets to 38 and changes the roulette number odds somewhat.
French, European and American roulette are all available in digital and live dealer format. At a live roulette table, you get to watch a professional dealer spin a real roulette wheel and ball. You can chat live with the dealer and other players and watch the action from multiple angles as it streams live to your screen. There are also unique live roulette variations such as Evolution Lightning Roulette, which combines spectacular live dealer entertainment with randomly generated multipliers on specific bets.
Online roulette betting options
Online roulette tables have the same great spread of entertaining betting options that you’d expect to find at a sophisticated land-based casino. The easiest bet to understand is the straight-up bet, where you place your stake on a single number. Straight-up bets pay out the most but also have the lowest odds of winning. The bets with the highest odds of winning are even-money bets such as “red or black”, “odd or even” and “high or low”. In between these two extremes are a whole range of combinations: column bets, dozen bets, line bets, square bets, street bets and split bets. Then there are the so-called French bets: Voisins du Zero (Zero’s Neighbors), Tiers du Cylindre (Cylinder Thirds) and Orphelins (Orphans). These are complicated betting patterns suitable for a more advanced roulette strategy. Online roulette games typically come with a racetrack betting layout that makes it easy to visualize the different bets, so you can make an informed decision.
