Roulette is one of the most popular table games in the world of online gambling. While many online casino players think the game seems a bit complicated at first glance, the basic rules behind Roulette are actually very easy to understand. Unlike other casino games, Roulette doesn’t move at a particularly fast pace, mainly because of the multitude of bets a player can make on each round. Therefore, the game is more suitable for laid back players rather than players looking for some speedy online casino action.

How to Play Online Roulette

The game of Roulette consists of a wheel with either 37 or 38 pockets or stops (Counting the 0 in European Roulette and 00 in American Roulette), and a ball that can land with equal chance in any of those pockets. Numbers ranging from 1 through 36 are evenly split between red and black, while 0 and 00 are green pockets.
