There is a large wheel with numbers coupled with a paytable. A player places a bet on the pocket he thinks the ball is going to end up in after the wheel is spun and the ball drops. It is a more luck oriented game than any other since there is no real strategy to predict where the ball is going to land next. In every spin, all the pockets have equal chances to land the ball.

In Betiton, we give our Canadian players different betting options and tips to ensure that they improve their payouts. The bets are very straight forward. Following our playing tips, you will be in a position to accurately put your bet in the right place and win in the long run.

Roulette Odds And Payouts

As a player, it is good to know the long term value for each bet you place. It is calculated by comparing your losing chances and the winning ones. It may sound like a walk in the park but you need to first understand roulette rules and the version of roulette you are using.

For example, American roulette has an additional 00 slots to make them 38 in total. As a result, it has a high house edge of 5.26%. The European version has only 37 slots and thus lowering the house edge to 2.63%. The odds of winning a game depend on the type of bet you place. The probability of winning an inside bet is a bit lower than that of the outside bet. However, there is a higher potential payout for inside bets compared to outside ones.

Understanding RTP is also essential as a way to manage your cash. A roulette version with higher RTP means you will last longer in the game. The average theoretical RTP of the American version is 94.74%, French is 98.65%, and that of the European is 97.30%.

Different Roulette Versions

  • American
  • European
  • French

American Roulette – As the name suggests, it was developed initially for the American market. It is played with a similar concept to the European wheel (same pockets in terms of colour and numbers).

However, there’s a major difference that affects the way you should play this game – there are an additional pocket double zero pockets that is green in colour. Double zeros add an extra place to bet on and changes the odds. It is also possible to place a single bet on the double zero which is not available on other versions such as the Europen roulette.

The house edge of this version is around 5.26%, which a lot of players consider to be a bit high. Unlike the European version, where a dealer can place a bet on your behalf using your chips, the American version does not allow that. At first, the game was only restricted to American land-based casinos. However, the introduction of internet betting changed the rules of the game. The American version is now available at Betiton.

As a new Canadian player, you can also start playing for free before you start with real money betting.

European Roulette – The game was developed and played mainly by people from Europe and was restricted to European land-based casinos. However, the availability of an online version made it easier for any person from any corner of the globe to play it.

At Betiton, we give any Canadian player the possibility to play it in the comfort of their home. The version has 37 pockets that run from zero to 36. Those pockets alternate from black to red, except the zero pocket which is green in colour. It has a large play table placed on the side of the wheel. Here, you can select inside, outside or neighbour bets.

In an online, as well as real-life, scenario, the game has a decent house edge of around 2.6%. It means the probability of winning while you play this game is a bit higher than with Amerian roulette. With proper cash management and employment of some strategies, we’re sure you will find this game entertaining.

The European version has also additional bets known as race track bets or called bets. Those bets cover only as a specific group of numbers or a specific section of the wheel.

French Roulette

French roulette is designed with some similarities to the Europen roulette in terms of gameplay and wheel orientation. The betting board is aligned slightly differently from the European version, as the wheel is places in the middle of the table, with the bet possibilities split between the two sides of the play table.

There is an addition of two key bets which makes the version stand out. The two bets are responsible for lowering the house edge to around 1.35%. These bets are “La Partage” and the “En Prison” rule. La Partage rule states that in the event a player makes an even bet (red or black, or odd or even) and zero comes up, they will receive back half of their stake.

En Prison rule states that the player can leave their even bet on the table for the next spin (no need to get half of their original stake). In the event the player wins the next spin, they get their full stake back but not their winnings. In case the game is lost, the whole stake is also lost. While the French version seems to be the least popular one, it does have its share of loyal followers.

Roulette Strategies

Online roulette game depends mostly on luck. However, there are some betting strategies in place to help you have a better winning streak or making a profit in your game. The Martingale strategy is the most popular roulette strategy. In entails doubling your bet every time you lose. In case of a win, you drop everything and start over.

The approach assumes that by the time you win, the amount you receive will be large enough to cover the losses and remain with some profit. This strategy is applicable when you have a substantial amount of money.

The Reverse Martingale strategy works similarly to the Martingale strategy – but in the opposite way. Here you don’t raise your bets after you lose, instead, you lower them when you lose and increase when you win. The idea is to take advantage of hot streaks and keep your losses at a minimum when you hit a rough patch.

Whichever strategy you choose, it’s always a good idea to take a few rounds at the free roulette simulators and test the waters to see if it fits you and if you have mastered it sufficiently before hitting the real money version of the game.


The game is played by picking a number, row, or colour, placing your bet, and waiting in anticipation that your stakes win.

In roulette, there is no sefest bet however. You have the possibilty to bet on the outside bet providing 1:1 odds

As you can see on our Guide, all betting strategies carry some risks and are connected to the size of your bankroll.
