What is Roulette Online?
There used to be a time when you could only satisfy your roulette urges by getting dressed up and heading over to the closest land-based casino. It is always great to go to the casino for the evening but, sometimes, especially after a long day of work, you just might not feel like it, while still having the urge to play some roulette. Three decades or so ago, this would have been a problem for Canadian roulette fans, but now it is no issue at all. Now you can just join an online casino like Betiton and play roulette online, on your desktop or mobile device, from the comfort of your own home.
What You Need to Know About Roulette Games
Another reason why roulette has become so popular all over the world, not just in Canada, is the fact that it is one of the simplest games that you will find at an online casino. You will have no more difficulty playing a game of roulette than you would playing some jackpot slots. Even if you are a complete novice, we reckon you will have a clear understanding of the game.
Roulette players simply have to choose a number, sit back, and hope that luck is on their side. The fact that it is simple to play is what makes it so attractive to beginners. However, there is one important thing that you need to know and that is that roulette, depending on the variant you are playing, has one of the highest house edges of any casino game, which means that it can be costly if you do not play intelligently.

A Closer Look at the New Roulette Games Available at Betiton Canada
Below we are going to give you a quick insight into some of the popular roulette games that we offer players in Canada.
Sapphire Roulette: This is a roulette game that was created by software developing giants Microgaming. It has been based on the European version of roulette, which you can find out more about below. The wheel has 18 black pockets, 18 red pockets and a single green pocket. It has become popular among roulette fans thanks to its betting range, great design, and simpleness of play. To help players place their bets, it has a Hot and Cold indicator in the top right, which shows the numbers that the ball has landed on frequently and those that it has not.
Vertical roulette: If you are after a great roulette experience on your mobile device, then this is the game you are looking for. It is a European version of roulette that has all the features a roulette player could ask for. There is a normal betting area and a racetrack. There are also a number of different shortcuts available that allow you to place bets simply and quickly. To add to all this, you can even flip the game depending on whether you are right or left handed. It also has graphics that will leave you impressed.
European roulette: When you play roulette outside of the US, this is the likely version of roulette that you will come across. The wheel that is used has the numbers 1-36 and there is one green 0. The house edge for European roulette is 2.70%, which is pretty decent. It is not as low a house edge as you will find in blackjack, but it is certainly nothing to complain about.
American roulette: This differs from European roulette in the fact that there is a double zero added to the wheel. This might not seem like much, but this one extra pocket that the ball can land in will decrease your chances of winning. This one extra pocket boosts the house edge up to 5.26%.
French roulette: This version of roulette is pretty similar to the European version due to the fact that there is one zero and numbers 1-36. The betting table is slightly different, but it is nothing too drastic. What makes it different is that there are two rules you cannot find in European roulette and these are La Partage and En Prison. With the former, if you place an even bet and the ball lands on the green zero, you will be given half of your stake back. With the latter, instead of accepting your stake back, you can leave it for your next spin. You are practically leaving it in prison, which is where the name comes from.
Roulette Pro: This roulette game was created by Playtech and uses the same type of wheel that you will find in European and French roulette – there are numbers 1-36 and one green zero. The minimum bet for this game is $1, while the maximum bet that you can place will depend on the bet you want to place. For instance, the most you can put on a straight-up bet is $20, while an even bet can go up to $200. Therefore, this is roulette game that suits low rollers as well as high rollers.
What is Casino Live?
A live casino is a studio that has been set up in such a way to mimic a real land-based casino. There are real tables and real dealers and all the action is being streamed live. You can join one of the tables at a live casino and the action from that particular table will be streamed straight to wherever you happen to be. If you do not feel like playing roulette against a computer and you do not feel like going to a land-based casino, then live roulette is exactly what you are looking for. You will be able to chat with fellow roulette fans as well as the dealer. One of the best things about live casino games is that you have the option of socializing with others.
How to Play Roulette Online
Playing roulette online is relatively straightforward, just like playing online scratch cards is. Below we have listed the main steps for you and if you follow these then you should come across no problems at all.
- Find the version of roulette that you want to play and click on it
- When the game has loaded, choose a number, group of number, or any other type of bet
- Decide on how much money you would like to bet
- Click on spin and watch the wheel spin
- If it lands on what you predicted then you win/if it lands on something else then you lose
Roulette Wheel, Numbers and Layout
As you probably already know by now, the roulette wheel will vary depending on what type of version of roulette you are playing. French and European roulette will have 37 pockets, while the wheel in American roulette will have 38 pockets. In European and French roulette, the numbers on the wheel are not in any sequence at all, but in American roulette the numbers are placed opposite the ones that come after them. For instance, opposite 21 you will find 22 and opposite 12 you will find 13.
The roulette table layout will have pretty much the same look no matter what roulette variant you are playing. The main difference being that the American table layout has one extra field to accommodate the double zero. The French roulette table has a slightly different lay out and the writing is in French (not an issue for many Canadians), but this is only really a superficial difference. When you look at the table layout you will notice that the main part is made up of the numbers 0-36 and the other sectors are there for placing bets on odd or even, red or black, 1-18, 19-36, dozens, and columns. If you bet on the numbers, you are placing an inside bet, while if you place a wager on the other sectors, you are placing an outside bet.
What Are the Rules of Online Roulette?
There are some casino games out there that have a lot of rules and regulations which can get quite confusing for a beginner, but this is certainly not the case with roulette. You will be able to get to grips with the rules of roulette in next to no time. Below we have taken it upon ourselves to list the main rules for you:
- When you start to play an online roulette game you will be given time to place your bets on the roulette table
- You can place as many bets as you like on the table (obviously the more you place, the more you will be spending)
- The dealer will start to spin the wheel and you will usually be able to place bets still. However, when the wheel starts to slow, you will not be allowed to place any more bets
- The ball will eventually drop into one of the pockets and the dealer will pay out those who guessed correctly
We all know that roulette is a game of luck, just like online slots, but there are a number of strategies that you can make use of that maybe could help to improve your chances of walking away with some profit. Below we have listed three of them and have then gone on to take a closer look at each one.
Martingale: There is a reason behind the popularity of this strategy – it is very simple to use, but this does not mean that you should just employ it blindly. The way it works is this: play against the odds by incrasing your bet by a unit every time you lose. In theory, if you eventually win, you will still have made a profit.
D’Alembert: Pick your first wager and, if it wins, decrease the stake by one. But if your first bet loses, increase it instead. The aim is to land as many wins as losses, and still make a profit thanks to this strategy.
Fibonacci: This is a progressive betting strategy. The famous Fibonacci sequence is 1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21-34-55-89-144-233 and so on. As you might have realized, the two numbers before combine to form the next number in the sequence. When making use of this strategy you place a stake that is the same as number from the sequence. If your bet wins, you go back two places. If your bet loses, you move to the next number and make that your new stake.
Play Online Roulette for Real Money
At Betiton you can play online roulette for real money. However, please keep in mind that you can also play our demo games should you want to practice one of the aforementioned strategies. Once you feel that you have perfected a particular strategy, you can then try it out for real money.
Another thing that makes roulette one of the more popular casino games is the fact that there are plenty of different things that you can bet on. When you are playing a game where there are few betting options, things can start to get boring pretty quickly. However, that will never be the case with roulette as you can vary your bet type quite often. Furthermore, each round is over quite quickly, so you can place more bets down. However, due to the fast-paced nature of this game, you need to keep track of your budget to ensure that you do not end up overspending.
Roulette Bets and Payouts
We are now going to take a look at the different bets that you can place when playing roulette as well as the payouts that are associated with each bet:
Odd/Even: If you place a bet that the ball will land in the pocket of an odd number and it does, then you will get a 1:1 payout. You will get the same payout if you bet that the ball will stop on an even number.
Black or red: If the ball stops on the color you predicted, you will receive a 1:1 payout.
Low or high: If the ball stops on a number between 1-18 and you bet on low, then there will be a payout of 1:1. If the ball stops on a number between 19-36 and you bet high, you will also get a 1:1 payout.
Dozens: The 36 numbers are split into three dozen on the layout – 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36. If you put your money on one of these dozens and are correct, you will get a 2:1 payout.
Columns: The numbers on the layout are split into three separate columns with 12 numbers. If the ball stops on a number that is in your column, then the payout for you is 2:1.
All of the above are known as outside bets. We are now going to take a closer look at the different inside bets that you can place.
Split bet: You have to select 2 numbers that are next to each other and if your guess is correct, you will receive a 17:1 payout.
Straight-up: You put your stake on a solitary number and if the ball stops on it, there will be a payout of 35:1.
Corner bet: You bet on four numbers in a group and it the ball lands on one of these numbers, there is a payout of 8:1.
Street bet: You select three numbers in one of the rows on the layout and if the ball lands on one of the numbers, you will get a nice payout of 11:1.
Five number bet: This bet is only possible when playing American roulette. Here you are placing your money on the ball landing on the three, two, one, double zero, or zero. There is a payout of 6:1.
Line bet: Here you put your money on two lines that are adjacent to each other. If the ball stops on of the six numbers, there is a payout of 5:1.
Calculating the odds of the different roulette bets is pretty – simple you just have to divide the number of ways that you can win by the number of different ways that you can lose. Therefore, if you placed a straight-up bet in European roulette on 32 red, your odds of winning would be 1/36 as you have one winning number and 36 other numbers that will make you lose. So, in other words, you have a 1 in 36 chance of winning.
Casino Offer and Bonus
Online casinos use casino bonuses to encourage new players to open an account with them. Bonuses help to increase your bankroll and give you the opportunity to check out a casino online without having to spend any of your own money.
