LEARN HOW TO PLAY ROULETTE ONLINE
Coming to life in 18th century France, roulette, which translates to ‘little wheel’ in French, is believed to be a local variation of an even older 17th century Italian game known as Biribi. Roulette wheels as we know them made their way first into casinos in Paris in the late 1790s and at the time indicated the zero and double zero pockets in red and black respectively. Along time this felt confusing and the introduction of a third colour (green) became a standard in the 1800s.
Roulette is a simple yet captivating game that has been enjoyed for centuries around the world. Even though you might have never played it before, it’s almost impossible for you to not have heard of it at some point. Nevertheless, if you’re planning to play for real money, then you’re going to want to read on and find out all there is to know about live casino roulette before hitting the tables.
Now let’s go over the basics. The rules of roulette are pretty simple – as we’ve just mentioned you’ve got a wheel that’s been divided into 36 red and black segments known as pockets numbered from 1 to 36, along with a single green zero pocket on European wheels, and two green pockets on the American wheels for zero, and double zero values.
The dealer spinning the wheel in live casino roulette is known as a croupier. You’ll also realise that the wheel will spin in a particular direction, whereas the ball will spin in the other, which is always interesting to see in action whilst awaiting the outcome of the round!
Popular live roulette online options amongst Jalla Casino players include titles such as Live VIP Auto Roulette, Lightning Roulette and Live Immersive Roulette amongst others.
TYPES OF BETS IN ONLINE ROULETTE
In order to place a bet in live roulette online, you must first review the board and decide your next move. In roulette you’re able to either bet on a single number, or on a group of them. Apart from that, you’ve also got a number of betting options which offer different odds and payouts. The first thing you’re going to want to know in this regard is that there are three types of bets in online roulette; inside bets, outside bets, and those known as announced bets.
Remember those numbers we talked about before that are featured on the roulette wheel? Well, these are also replicated on the roulette board with a part dedicated to numbers from zero through to 36, and the rest allowing you to place your wager on a collection of numbers including red and black, odd, and even, and numbers between 1 to 18 and 19 to 36. You’re also able to bet on various columns or number groups of 12 known as streets as indicated on the board.
Bets placed on the actual numbers themselves are called inside bets, whereas number groups are referred to as outside bets in roulette live.
LIVE ROULETTE VARIATIONS
Once you familiarise yourself with the live casino lobby at Jalla Casino, a title that might catch your eye might in fact be Lightning Roulette.
