Live roulette variants

In the live casino you will find traditional casino games such as baccarat, poker, blackjack and roulette.

The live casino has besides the regular roulette variants also different live roulette games. These can only be played at online casinos. In land-based casinos like for example the Holland Casino you can also find a number of live roulette games. These are the five best known live roulette games:

Double Ball Roulette

Double Ball Roulette

In Double Ball Roulette there are two balls in the kettle. Players have the chance to win an extremely high payout of 1300:1. This is the case when both balls fall on the same number and there is a bet on that number. The game is very popular. Keep in mind that not every casino will offer this game.

Lightning Roulette

Lightning Roulette

Lightning Roulette from Evolution Gaming is the most popular variant at the moment. A Random Number Generator allows lightning to strike randomly on one to five numbers per round of play. Multipliers can range from a minimum of 50x the bet to as much as 500x the bet. Read more here.
Immersive Roulette

Immersive Roulette

Another variant is Immersive roulette. On this variant, images are transmitted in 200 frames per second in HD quality to the player’s screen. The camera can zoom in on the ivory ball in the wheel and images come into view in slow motion. This creates an “Immersive” experience, literally translated “Compelling”.
French Roulette

French roulette

French roulette is one of the better, classic variants. Players can place money on numbers 1 through 36 and on a single zero. Furthermore, it has a special ‘la partage’ rule whereby players lose half of their bet if the ball lands on a zero in the case of a single chance bet. The names of areas are in French.

American Roulette

American roulette

The American roulette tables come with a double zero. It has 1 through 36 numbers and a 0 and 00 on the table layout and wheel. This variant offers lower betting limits than other roulette variants. In addition, it has an extra bet called ‘five bet’, where you can bet your chips on five numbers at once. This variant is the one with the highest house edge and is best avoided.

Live roulette in a Holland Casino

No live roulette experience is as enjoyable as the one at Holland Casino or a casino on the Las Vegas strip. The atmosphere, the touch of the chips, the sound of the ball rushing through the roulette machine. This atmosphere is unmatchable.

And we are not even talking about the old days. It is said that everything used to be better. Often this is nonsense but in the case of live roulette it is. In the last century the real French roulette was played in Holland Casino and other casinos. It was an experience. Nowadays, this game is played live only in the Monaco casino (as far as we know). If you are ever in the area then a visit to this legendary casino is definitely worthwhile.
