Online Roulette Variations

There are numerous versions of roulette, each differing slightly from the other, at our online casino in NZ:

  • European Roulette: Popular online roulette variation featuring a wheel with 37 numbers, including a single 0, as well as a table layout with various betting options. You can wager on specific numbers, columns, or odds and evens, with different payout odds for each bet.
  • American Roulette: Holds an extra number, 00, which increases the house edge and makes it a riskier online roulette game compared to the European version. The betting options and rules are similar, allowing wagers on black or red, number sections, odds, and evens.
  • Multi-Wheel Roulette: Allows you to wager on multiple tables at once, using multiple wheels while following the original roulette rules. Up to eight wheels can be in play, and a single wager applies to every wheel, providing better chances to win but potentially depleting your bankroll faster.
  • Multiplayer Roulette: Here, players share the table with avatars from other online roulette players, simulating a land-based experience. Following the rules of the European version and using a random number generator to determine the outcome, with a countdown timer for each spin.
  • Live Roulette: Offers an authentic casino experience with tables hosted by professional croupiers in real time, streamed to your device for a live wheel gaming experience.

Online Roulette Strategy

In online roulette, predicting the outcome of each spin is impossible, as they are independent events. To enhance their chances of winning real money, mathematicians have devised strategies based on patterns – here are some popular strategies:

  • Martingale: Recover losses by doubling your wager after each loss, relying on the assumption that eventual wins will offset previous losses. Ideal for high rollers, but it may be limited by maximum bet constraints on the table.
  • Reverse Martingale (Paroli): Increase your stake after a win by doubling it for the next bet, returning to the original amount after a loss – in other words, a positive progression method.
  • D’Alembert: Suited for even-money bets, this strategy includes adding one unit after a loss and decreasing the stake by one unit after a win, providing a less risky approach to online roulette.
  • Roulette Line Bet: Opt for 5-line bets with equal amounts, leaving only 6 numbers. With a 5:1 payout for a line bet, this strategy helps recover losses from four losing bets and gain a small profit from the winning one.

Online Roulette NZ FAQs

What does 00 mean in online roulette?

In online roulette, the term "00" refers to the double zero on the wheel. It is an additional green slot, similar to the single zero, and is commonly found in American roulette wheels. European roulette, on the other hand, usually has only a single zero.

How do you win at online roulette?

Winning at online roulette is primarily based on chance. However, some players employ strategies such as the Martingale system or focus on outside bets with higher odds to potentially enhance their chances of winning. It's important to note that there is no foolproof method for consistently winning in roulette.

Can I play online roulette on my phone?

Yes. You can access Jackpot City via your preferred mobile browser on tablet or smartphone, or you can install our dedicated casino app on your iOS or Android device.

Are online roulette games rigged?

Reputable online casinos like Jackpot City Casino use RNG technology to ensure that the games are completely fair and unbiased.

What is the trick to win online roulette?

As online roulette is essentially a game of chance, there is no guaranteed trick to consistently win. Strategies like the Martingale system may offer short-term gains but come with risks. Therefore, it’s essential to set a budget, play responsibly, and be aware that there is no foolproof strategy. Ultimately, the outcome of each spin is random, and the house always has an edge.
