Nowadays almost all casinos offer live roulette. In this article more about the game rules etc. Roulette is a game of chance and the roulette wheel is only operated by a well-trained croupier. So you only have to worry about the rules and placing your bets. When you first see a live roulette table it can all look rather complicated. In reality it is a simple game that can be mastered very easily. If you’re new to live roulette or inexperienced, we’ve listed the rules and some guidelines for you.
European, American or French live roulette?
On European and French roulette wheels, there are 37 numbers and three colors. The zero is green and then there are eighteen black and eighteen red numbers. American roulette wheels have two different zeros, the single 0 and the 00, so a total of 38 squares. The object of the game is to guess where the ball will fall. So this is pure luck because live roulette is really a game of chance.
Some people in live roulette bet on the numbers that have fallen frequently. These are called the “hot numbers.” On the other hand, you have the numbers that have almost not fallen, and these are called the “cold numbers.” Live roulette experts say that you should always bet with the bank, but whether they have made a fortune out of it or not we don’t know.
Live roulette betting possibilities
The croupier will let you know when there are no more bets to be placed. You can bet on a single number, two numbers, three numbers, four numbers or six numbers. But on the live roulette there are also various other betting options such as: red or black, even or odd, dozens and rows etc. The odds and payouts for all these bets are different, but the well-trained croupier will pay you all your winnings correctly.
As indicated above, the different bets also have odds. The less chance you have, the higher the payout. For example, if you bet on red or black you have almost a 50% chance of winning, since half of the numbers are red, and the other half are black.
If you play only one number then your chance is 1 in 37 that it will fall, but you will also get paid 35x if the number falls. The casino of course has a small advantage because otherwise they could not exist. If you bet all the numbers you lose 1 out of 37 bets which works out to 2.7% advantage for the house. If you play on the single odds then the advantage of the casino is even only 1.35%. Live roulette is thus a fun casino game where you can do little wrong. As with live blackjack, you don’t need a difficult system to play it winningly. That’s why roulette is also a hugely popular game with many guests of online casinos.
