Types Of Roulette Games
As with most online casino games today, Roulette comes in a wide variety of different variations, and this means you can experience game types that you’d not usually be able to find in a land-based casino.
In this post, I’m going to cover some of the most popular Roulette variations.
This is one of the most popular Roulette variations, and here, you’ll be able to bet on more than one Roulette wheel at once.
The game usually features three different Roulette wheel, but can occasionally feature up to 5, and on your screen, you’ll see three wheels spinning at once.
When you place your wagers, you’ll find that either 3X the unit stake will appear on the game board, or, on certain variations, the wagers you place will be automatically cut down into three parts, ensuring each Roulette wheel carries an equal stake.
Mini Roulette is another very popular online variation of the game, and just like the name would suggest, it’s played on a mini version of the traditional game board.
Usually, mini Roulette features between 9 and 15 numbers, and while the odds will change significantly, depending on how many numbers the Roulette wheel has, the odd/payout ratio doesn’t change.
Roulette with a jackpot attached is found in many of the larger online casinos, and the jackpot amount can get relatively large, depending on which casino you choose to play at.
While each casino awards its progressive jackpot on Roulette in different ways, the most common way of awarding the jackpot is by landing the same number 3-5 spins in a row. If you’re playing at this time, you’re awarded the jackpot!
There is also a selection of different sidebets available on Roulette wheels, and one of the most popular of these is the colour + odds/even bet, a combination of the standard even money bets.
For this sidebet, you’ll place a wager on either red and odd, red and even, black and odd, or black and even. If the number that drops first both the colour, and the odd/even choice you picked, you’ll win the bet, with casinos typically paying this bet out at around 4:1.
There’s hundreds of different Roulette games available, and aside from the side bets we’ve looked at above, there’s also different forms of Roulette, including American Roulette, French Roulette, and European Roulette.
All of them play out similarly, with American Roulette featuring slightly worse odds than European Roulette, and both American and European Roulette featuring slightly lower payout percentages than French Roulette.
Because of this, it’s always best to try and play French Roulette where possible, or European Roulette – American Roulette uses two zeroes, which increases the house edge exponentially.
