Roulette is, of course, a proud game of French origins, and its name actually means Little Wheel in that language. Roulette was first played by noblemen in high-born homes during the 18th century, and while many more of us have access to it today, playing it still has a special and almost prestigious feeling. The game is widely available in offline casinos, and the best place to enjoy online Roulette in Canada is right here.
Like all of the games that are available at JackpotCity, our online Roulette titles are developed and produced by Microgaming. This gaming software developer has a legendary reputation in Canada and around the rest of the world, and it most definitely delivers every time. Not only are the online Roulette games immersive, detailed and smoothly functional, but they can be played on any machine with any operating system.
You can also download and install our free JackpotCity software or you can enjoy our games in an instant-play format via your web browser, with no compromise in quality. It’s also possible to play our online Roulette games for free as well as for real money, so that you can practice or simply appreciate their finer points with no financial stress.
Playing online Roulette games rather than their offline counterparts is also usually a little faster, so that you can win more money in less time! For players who go for the multi-player and multi-wheel games that are available at JackpotCity, the chances of winning are enhanced even further, as more wheels and balls are in play at any given time.
We’ve got a whole range of online Roulette games waiting for you!
The online version of Roulette works in a very similar way to its offline counterpart, except of course that you never need to queue to play and you can do so from anywhere and at any time. A wheel is spun and a ball is dropped onto it. Before the spinning begins, you need to place a bet on where the ball will be when the wheel comes to rest.
At JackpotCity smooth and seamless animations and Random Number Generation simulate the experience well, and you can also choose to play live dealer games. In the live dealer games a real live croupier will spin the wheel and drop the ball for you, and you’ll get to watch it happen via a live video feed. You can’t get closer to a land-based experience when you are online than that!
The Roulette wheel is mostly comprised of segments alternately coloured in red and black, and numbered from 1 to 36. There is also a green panel numbered 0, and in the case of the American version of the game, another green segment labelled 00.
You can choose all sorts of different bets in this game, including whether the ball will end in an odd or even, or a red or black panel. You can also put money on the range of numbers that the ball will land within, or on the specific number of its finishing panel. The more accurate you are, the more risk you carry, but the more you stand to win as well.
You can choose from European, French and American versions of the game at JackpotCity, as well as the multi-wheel, multi-player and live dealer games mentioned above, and progressive jackpot action as well. Over time, you’ll get to explore and enjoy them all.
It’s usually best to start with the European or French Roulette games, rather than the American variation, and to start playing for no deposit rather than for real money. Choosing the French or European games is recommended since, with its extra 00 panel, the odds in the American game are tipped a little more out of your favour. Playing for free and developing your style before you risk any of your own cash should be pretty self-explanatory!
As your confidence and insights grow you go on to real money play, followed by the multi-player and -hand games, and even the progressive jackpots for the ultimate in life-changing wins. You’ll develop your own insights and tactics as you progress along your Roulette journey, but it’s always a good rule of thumb to remember that the game is essentially one of chance, and to factor that into your strategy.
The Martingale Strategy for Roulette is an incredibly popular betting system and simply involves doubling your bets if you’re losing and halving your bets when you’re winning. If you stick to this, you’ll eventually have a win after a losing streak and will get to recoup all your money.
When you’re first starting out, we also recommend sticking to the bets that pay you even money. These include Red/Black, Odd/Even and 1st/2nd 18 wagers. Once you have more of a feel for the game and have learnt more about the way it works, you can move on to the more risky and exotic bets.
The sooner you start spinning the online Roulette wheels we have on offer at JackpotCity, the sooner you’ll be having fun and standing to win big payouts!
