Online roulette

Roulette is a game that has stood the test of time. Unlike many other games it has refused to just fade away. With the launch of online casinos it has just been increasing in popularity, maybe not that surprising considering you can find the game at almost every single casino. Many of us might know the game or its name from the movies, a series or a book we read where the characters visit casinos and the roulette table to try their luck. Others might have played roulette at a real life casino or at an online casino. You haven’t tried the game yet? No problem, it is easy to try roulette at a casino with money bets or totally free. 

French origins

The most popular theory concerning the origins of roulette is that it was born in France, created by the mathematician Blaise Pascal in 1657. The roulette wheel that is still used today was first created in the 1800’s by the two brothers Louis and Francois Blanc. At that time the game was forced to migrate to Germany since it was against French laws. Francois Blanc went on to open the very first casino in Monte Carlo where he also placed his roulette wheel. This is the wheel that is still used in French/European roulette. When the game reached the US the American casinos decided to increase the house edge by adding a double zero and the game we now know as American roulette was born.

According to Albert Einstein the game of roulette can only be beaten by stealing from it. This means that the game is based on luck. This has not stopped people from creating strategies and system to try to break the game and be guaranteed to win. Thru the years people have also tried to win the other way – by cheating. This has been one by analyzing imperfections in the wheel and with that data try to predict where the ball will land. Some of these methods have been successful others have not but the successful methods have been banned from casinos the second they were discovered. In online roulette is it impossible to use any of these methods since the game is digital.

How and where can i play roulette online?

Roulette is played on a roulette table using a playfield, a wheel and a ball. The playfield consist of the numbers 1 to 36 in black and red. You will also find fields for betting on columns, on groups of 12 numbers, on black or red, odd or even and high or low. Of course the field for betting on the zero and/or the double zero is also on the table. Every active player will get chips in a unique color so that the bets will not be mixed up during the game. When the game starts players need to place their bets and the croupier will start spinning the wheel. Players can keep placing bets until the croupier announces no more bets allowed. When the ball finally lands on a number it will be called out and the winner will be paid. All chips will be cleared off the table and the losing bets are claimed by the house.

In addition to the fields for bets on the table there are some specific bets you can play in roulette. For example you can place your chips on a line between two numbers and that way split your bet between the two numbers. There is also a bet called snake where you place the chips on the numbers so that it forms the letter s which resembles the snake. Another type of bet is called street and it is a horizontal bet on three numbers next to each other. If you place one more of those bets next to the first it is called a double street. Placing your chips on numbers that form a square is fittingly called a square bet.

Roulette can be found at most online casinos today, like at YoYo casino. Roulette is usually located at the live casino. It is also possible to find the game at the home pages of developers where you can try the games for free. This gives you a chance to compare games from different developers and to learn the rules of the game.

System och strategies online

Which, if any, system or strategy you should use when playing online is no different from the systems and strategies that can be used at real life casinos. You are free to use your own system or strategy but if you prefer to use one that is already created there are quite a few to choose from. If someone is asking for money in exchange for their strategy it is most likely a scam or fraud. No system to date can guarantee a win at the roulette table. If you want you can try using one of the better known systems such as the Martingale system, the Labouchere system or the Fibonacci sequence.

Whichever way you choose to play you need to keep in mind that roulette is first and foremost a game of luck and not skill or strategy.
