Roulette is one of the most popular casino games around the world. Its many variants are available in all of the best online casinos, including EnergyCasino! Aside from the classic virtual roulette, EnergyCasino also offers many Live Roulette tables created to emulate the look and feel of a real, land-based casino. The tables are hosted in studios equipped with game control units and HD cameras: players can place their wagers alongside other bettors, while real croupiers guide and oversee the gameplay.
At EnergyCasino, players can choose between 31 different live tables with energetic croupiers from around the world. The stream quality and ease of use are perfect for anyone looking to enjoy the real casino experience without the pressure of the land-based setting. Wagers on Live Roulette are accepted after the croupier’s cue to “Place your bets” and must be finalised before the dealer announces “No more bets”. Players should always familiarise themselves with the unique rules of the selected roulette variant, as that can affect the gameplay.
The name roulette stems from French, meaning “little wheel”. At its core, the game of roulette is fairly simple: the wheel is spun and a small ball is launched along the rim of the wheel in the opposite direction. Depending on the variation of the game, players can make wagers on an array of criteria like colour, number(s), odd or even, high or low. As the wheel slows down, the ball loses its momentum and descends into one of the coloured and numbered roulette pockets. The winning number is determined by the ball’s final pocket location when the wheel comes to a halt.
Live Roulette tables offered by online casinos don’t differ from their traditional counterparts, anyone who enjoys land-based casino tables will be familiar with everything that Live Roulette has to offer. EnergyCasino offers exceptional stream quality and a seamless user interface, for an interactive experience which new and veteran players alike will surely appreciate. Several HD cameras provide visibility of every element of the game, and the UI functions allow players to navigate through the many betting options with ease.
Before starting a game of roulette, the most important choice you need to make is deciding which variant of the game you’d like to play. Two of the most popular variants are European and American Roulette. The main difference is that American Roulette has an extra number on the wheel and table – 00 – which bumps the house edge to 5.26%. In European Roulette, there are only 37 pockets, giving the house an edge of 2.7%. French Roulette is another popular choice at EnergyCasino. It features an identical layout to European Roulette but offers additional rules, like la partage and en prison, that may bring the edge down to 1.35%.
TYPES OF BETS IN LIVE ROULETTE
Live Roulette features the same types of bets as traditional and online variants do and all wagers on Live Roulette must be made using real money. Live Roulette is a game of chance, like all casino slots, and does not require any particular skill to play. However, players can experiment with different betting strategies to find the right fit for their playstyle. EnergyCasino also features various promotional offers, which may award additional funds or bonuses for playing roulette.
There are two common wager types in Live Roulette – inside and outside bets. Inside bets are placed on a single number or adjacent numbers. Some of common inside bets players will often see in Live Roulette are:
Straight Up - a bet placed on a single number.
Split - a bet where the chip is placed between two numbers – horizontally or vertically – to indicate a bet on two numbers.
Street/Three-Line - a bet on three numbers on the same row, or Street, such as 1,2,3 or 4,5,6.
Six-Line - a bet placed on six numbers across two rows, made by placing the chip on the intersection between the two rows.
Corner Bet – a bet where the chip is placed at the central corner of the four numbers on the table, like 1,2,4,5.
Outside bets are generally viewed as safer bets since they cover larger groups of numbers, thus providing a higher chance of successful spins. Here are the most common outside bets in Live Roulette:
Red/Black - a bet on 18 red or black numbers.
Even/Odd - a bet placed on 18 even or odd numbers.
Low/1-18 - a bet placed on the numbers 1-18.
High/19-36 - a bet placed on the numbers 19-36.
Column - a bet placed on one of the three columns, each one covering 12 numbers.
Dozen - a bet placed on one of the three dozens on the roulette table. The dozens are 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36.
Depending on which variant of roulette you pick, you may encounter different winning odds. Researching wagering strategies and unique gameplay rules may help players make informed and responsible decisions when playing roulette.
