Roulette means Little Wheel in French, and spinning a small wheel is exactly what this exciting game is all about!
First played in the aristocratic houses of 18th-century France, Roulette has lost none of its sophistication in the process of becoming more widespread. The versions of online Roulette that we feature at JackpotCity are some of the very best available anywhere today.
One of the main reasons for that is that all of our games, including our Roulette titles, are powered by Microgaming. This award-winning software developer is admired by industry insiders and has been around since 1994. Every game that it creates is completely immersive and crafted to perfection, and the offering of online Roulette games are no exception.
Playing Roulette at JackpotCity means you never have to wait for a spot at the table, and the games are available to you at any time of the day or night. Online Roulette also tends to go more quickly than offline games, and with the faster pace you can play more and win more in a shorter space of time.
We’ve also got more Roulette varieties on offer than you might be able to find in a single brick-and-mortar casino, and we allow you to play for free to practice and develop your strategy. When you’ve developed some skills and confidence, you can start playing to win our eye-watering payouts.
In every game of Roulette a ball is dropped onto a spinning wheel. The wheel has different numbered segments, and you need to bet on where the ball will be when the wheel comes to rest. There are alternately-coloured black and red panels that are labelled 1 to 36, and then one or two green panels labelled 0 and 00 respectively, depending on which version you are playing.
You can place all kinds of different wagers, including the colour of the panel that the ball will finish up in, and whether the number of the segment will be odd or even. You can also wager on the ball landing within a certain range of numbers, or even on the exact number of the panel it will land in.
The more specific you are, the higher the risk, but the higher the rewards. It just depends how lucky you’re feeling at the time!
At JackpotCity we’ve got American, European and French versions of the game lined up for you, as well as multi-player, multi-wheel, progressive jackpot and live dealer Roulette! There’s a style to suit every skill level and mood.
We recommend starting with the European or French versions of the game, since they only have a single green panel on the wheel, and thus a lower house edge. The second green panel, labelled 00, is introduced in the American game and raises the house edge a little, so you might want to master the basics of the game before you try this.
Practice in the no-deposit free play mode, and then when you’re ready you can start placing real stakes. As you get more and more comfortable with the game, you might want to add more excitement and wins with multi-player and multi-table games, before moving onto the progressive jackpots that can award life-altering amounts of cash and the thrilling live dealer games.
Here you’ll have a professional croupier to spin the wheel and throw the balls for you, rather than a high-quality animation and Random Number Generation to simulate this effect. This happens in real time, and you can watch it on the screen of your computer. It’s as close to sitting in a live casino as it is possible to get when playing online, and is immersive and involved enough to make you forget anything else that is going on around you.
You should take full advantage of our top-quality no-deposit online Roulette games at JackpotCity, and do as much research into different tactics to try out as you can. The more time you spend in the world of Roulette, the more you will discover and the more you will want to test out and apply. To start off with, it’s a good idea to try the Martingale Strategy for Roulette.
This entails you doubling your bets when you are losing, and halving them when you are winning. It can seem quite counterintuitive at first, but when you try it you’ll easily be able to see first-hand how the system works. If you stick to it, you’ll eventually start winning again after a losing streak and will be able to recoup your losses.
This is a clear example of taking into account the element of chance that is present in all Roulette games, and should help you stay cool under pressure. It’s actually a good rule of thumb to bear this randomness in mind whenever you are thinking about your Roulette strategy, and making adjustments or refinements.
As a new player, it’s also wise to stick to the less risky, even money bets until you’ve gained some experience and have more of a feel for the game. These include the 1st/2nd 18, Odd/Even and Red/Black wagering options.
