Online Roulette


Last Updated: 18-05-2022 09:34

Enter the exciting world of online roulette by joining Betiton™ Ireland and have a taste of the classic casino roulette game and all its fantastic variations! If you’re dipping your toe into online casino games for the first time, there’s no better game to play than online roulette. Its simple rules and many betting options make online roulette a favourable choice amongst new players.

To cover the basics, here’s a reminder of how online roulette works: players can place various bets on the different numbers or sections of the roulette wheel. Once all players are ready and their bets are in place, the dealer spins the roulette wheel with the ball inside. The ball rolls and stops naturally at one of the sections of the wheel (known as “pockets”). The dealer then announces the lucky number. If a player has placed a bet on that pocket, they receive a payout according to the type of bet they placed.

This is the game in essence but keep reading to find out the rules and variations of different online roulette games below. The main thing to remember is that online roulette is a game of chance, just like casino roulette. You’re probably thinking how do I win at this game if it’s all based on luck? Understanding the different betting options, as well as the variety of bets you can place, what they are, and their associated odds, can turn this game into a surprising and thrilling experience.

We’ll cover everything from European roulette to American roulette, share some useful online roulette tips, and introduce you to our fantastic roulette promotions.

Online Roulette Games

There are some differences between land-based casino roulette games and online roulette games. You’ll find online roulette is very similar to a video game. This means you won’t have a live dealer present during your game – not unless you are playing Live Roulette. We will talk all about how Live Roulette works further down on this page if you are tempted to give it a try!

Online roulette is simple and intuitive. Once you start the game, you’ll see a virtual table and roulette wheel where you can place your bets with just a few clicks. Once that’s done the wheel will spin automatically, and the ball will land randomly on a pocket. Depending on the success of your bets, you’ll be able to see your payout right there on the screen.

You’re probably wondering if the casino can cheat when you play online roulette or any of the other online casino games. This might surprise you, but verified online casinos like Betiton ™ cannot purposely minimize your odds. Online casinos purchase their games from licensed companies and reputable providers. You can always check for their legitimacy online and on our website. Regulators also inspect the games and test them to confirm their legitimacy. Don’t worry, the games you’ll be playing on Betiton™ Ireland will not be rigged.

Another major difference between online roulette and casino roulette is the number of participants in a game. Unless you’re participating in a Live Roulette game, you’ll be the only player at the table.

As you can see, virtual roulette isn’t that different from the real thing!

Real Money vs Demo Online Roulette Games

At Betiton™, you always have the option to play roulette online for free or real roulette online with real money bets. There are a few differences between playing for free, in demo mode, or for real money and both have their pros and cons. 

When you play in demo mode, you’ll be playing for free without wagering any real money. This way, you can test out different games without using any of your funds. You can also practice the game for as long as you like until you feel confident enough to play for real money. Of course, playing for free also means you can’t win any real money rewards; you simply get some practice. 

The possibility of winning real money is what attracts most players to online roulette or any other casino game for the matter, which is why playing for real money is the more popular option. When you play for real money, you get a much more exciting experience because there is the chance to win real money if you can guess where the ball will land.

Why Play for Free? Why Play with Real Funds?
You can practise games before deciding to play them with real funds There’s a much larger variety of available games for you to enjoy
You can try out games without having to pay anything You’ll unlock the real enjoyment of gaming at a casino
There’s no chance of winning real money You can win real money
You won’t be able to enjoy any of our promotional offers You’ll be eligible to claim our welcome bonus and other bonuses

We have teased you enough – it’s time to get you acquainted with the different roulette variants and what makes them unique.

European Roulette

European Roulette is the most common version of the game. Despite being called European roulette, most American casinos will use this variant, and it is considered the standard roulette. European roulette features a wheel with 37 numbered pockets, starting at 0 and going up to 36. At Betiton™ Ireland, you can try the best online roulette games brought to you by iSoftBet, Gluck Games, and Microgaming.

Double Zero Roulette (American)

European roulette and American roulette (also called double zero roulette) are very similar. They share the same rules and bets but have one key difference – the American roulette wheel uses a double-digit zero pocket, adding an extra pocket for a total of 38. Nevertheless, the premise of the game stays the same – guessing where the ball will end up.

French Roulette

French Roulette is a favourite amongst most players. It uses the same wheel as European Roulette and has the same roulette rules and bets, as well as some special bets. One of these special bets has given the French Roulette its popularity – the La Partage rule, which gives an advantage to players that make an even money bet on either red or black. They also get 50% of the money they bet back if the ball lands on zero.

There is another interesting rule worth mentioning when you play French roulette. It is known as the En Prison rule, which translates as In Prison and only works for even money bets. If the ball lands on zero, your wager is put ‘in prison’ until the next spin of the wheel. The same bet is placed and if you are lucky enough to win, your original wager is returned!

Mini Roulette

Mini roulette isn’t a mini version of a roulette wheel, if that’s what you think. Instead, it uses a wheel that’s unlike any of the ones we previously mentioned. The mini roulette wheel only has 13 pockets, numbered 0 to 12, giving you a limited number of bets you can make. Most commonly, you’ll be making even money bets and outside bets, or you can bet on single roulette wheel numbers if you like.

Live Roulette

We already mentioned live roulette briefly on this page, so let’s talk about it in some more detail. Live roulette is a one-of-a-kind immersive iGaming experience, taking place in real-time. Live Roulette features a live croupier, who is there to spin the wheel and negotiate the beginnings and ends of bets. It is played on a virtual table, augmented into live video. You can play live roulette with other players, or you can play by yourself and be the star of the show. Whatever you decide, we have an expansive collection of Live Roulette games to choose from that is available 24/7 for our Irish players.

Live Roulette is 100% real. You are able to always observe the roulette wheel from the different camera angles provided. Live roulette feels more social, even though the players can’t see or hear each other. You can communicate with the live dealer via chat if you want to ask a question or type a comment.

In Live Roulette, rounds can be fast-paced, especially if you pick Lightning Roulette or Speed Roulette. As the name suggests, you can expect the rounds of these games to be lightning-quick, and payouts are made instantly. Wagering rounds and times are also timed, to speed up the gaming process, making it even more exciting for players.

Online Roulette Rules

Roulette rules are simple, straightforward, and easy to grasp, which makes the game quite appealing to new players. Players rely on their luck to win. Of course, there are some tips and tricks you can use to increase your chances of winning. We have included those further down the page.

Online roulette rules can be learned in just a couple of minutes, and most players can memorize them straight away. The premise is simple: players bet where the ball will stop after the roulette wheel has been spun. They can choose to place their bets on a single number, a group of numbers (like columns, for instance), on a colour – red or black, on even or odd numbers, and on low (1-18) or high (19-36) numbers. Players can also decide to bet on the zero if they like.

Once all players have placed their bets, a croupier spins the roulette wheel in one direction, and a ball in the opposite direction of the rotation of the wheel. Eventually, the ball will slow down, lose its momentum, pass through the deflectors, and stop inside one of the coloured and numbered pockets of the wheel.

Based on the result, payouts are then issued to the successful betters. There are different types of bets all with varying odds, referred to as outside bets and inside bets, which we discuss further down the page.

Roulette Table

A standard roulette table layout (for European Roulette) will have the zero at the top, followed by a layout of all the numbers featured on the wheel, coloured accordingly. In addition, roulette table layouts are designed to clearly show what bets are being placed, including bets on colours, odds and evens, high and low numbers, columns, and so on. If you decide to play online roulette on your mobile device, you’ll likely come across the vertical layout of a roulette table, with numbers facing your way. This layout is deliberately made in favour of user comfort and in no way changes the game.

American Roulette changes up the standard roulette layout not just by adding a double zero pocket, but also switches up the standard colours of most double-digit numbers. In those cases, you’ll find ten and eleven are both black, for instance. Instead of alternating between red and black, the American roulette follows its own unique pattern.

Roulette Wheel

The roulette wheel is pretty simple and as we previously explained, varies depending on the type of online roulette game you’re playing. Typically, a roulette wheel will have 37 pockets for the numbers, with consecutive numbers between 0 and 36, which are coloured and alternate between black and red with the exception of the zero, which is always green.

As we previously explained, some iterations of the game change up the roulette wheel by adding double zeros (American roulette) or taking away roulette wheel numbers (Mini roulette). In some instances the game can be played with multiple balls or wheels, like in our Multiwheel and Multiball Roulette.

Roulette Payouts and Odds

Our Online roulette games offer maximum variability, and that’s exactly what makes them so fun to play. There are so many different bets to choose from, it is guaranteed the game will feel different and exciting each time you play it. One time you might want to play it safe and choose low-risk bets with smaller rewards, and other times you can test your luck and go for a high-risk bet with a large payout. We have explained the differences between inside and outside bets in the section below, so you can clearly understand roulette payouts and odds. We have also mentioned some special bets that you can encounter in certain variants.

Inside Bets

Inside bets can be found at the head of the roulette table. You can make several types of inside bets. For example, you can bet on a single number, or on a cluster of numbers forming a pattern on the table. One thing to remember is that inside bets tend to be a higher risk, as there is a lower chance of getting the numbers right. As a result, payouts are much higher. Check the table below to get yourself familiar with the different types of bets:

Type of Inside Bet Definition Odds Payout
Straight/Single Bet A bet placed on one specific number of the wheel, and the highest paying bet in roulette. 2.70% 35x
Split A bet on two adjacent numbers, such as 3 and 6, for example. 5.40% 17x
Trio A bet on two numbers as well as either 0 or 00, depending on the type of roulette you are playing. 5.40% 11x
Street A bet placed on a row of three adjacent numbers, referred to as a ‘street’. For example, a bet on 3, 6, and 9. 8.10% 11x
Corner/Square Bet A bet on four numbers which are adjacent to each other in the shape of a square, which is why this bet is also known as a square bet. To place this bet, the chip/s need to be placed in the middle of the four numbers where all four corners meet. 10.80% 8x
First Four A bet on the first four numbers on the betting table, which are 0-1-2-3. 10.80% 8x
Top Line/Basket A bet on the numbers 0-00-1-2-3. This bet is only possible in American roulette. 13.50% 6x
Six Line A bet placed on two horizontal rows of three numbers (total of six numbers) 16.20% 5x

Outside Bets

You’ll find the outside bets below the inside bets on a roulette table. Outside bets are not placed on specific roulette wheel numbers. Instead, they focus on other features of the roulette wheel, such as the pocket colours, type of number or a different section of numbers. Considering they cover larger sections of the wheel, your chance of winning is also higher. This makes the payouts for outside bets in roulette smaller. Plainly put, outside bets are low-risk, offer a bigger chance of guessing where the ball will land, and therefore reward smaller payouts.

Another important detail worth mentioning is even money bets. This is a name given to bets that pay even money (1:1). Have a look at the table we have compiled below to gain a better understanding of outside bets in roulette.

Type of Outside Bet Definition Odds Payout
Red or Black A bet that the ball will land in a red or black pocket of the roulette wheel. 48.60% 1x
Odd or Even A bet that the ball will land in a pocket that has an even or an odd number. There are 18 even numbers and 18 odd ones, so the chances of winning on either bet is equal. 48.60% 1x
Low or High This is a bet that the ball will land on any of the low numbers or the high ones. The low numbers are 1 to 18 while the numbers 19 through 36 are referred to as high numbers. 48.60% 1x
Column Bet There are three different columns containing 12 numbers on the roulette table and you can place a bet on any of these three columns. 32.40% 2x
Dozens Bet This bet is similar to the bet described above because it’s a bet on a set of 12 numbers. The difference is that the numbers are four adjacent columns containing three numbers each, giving a total of 12 numbers. You can bet on the 1st dozen, the 2nd dozen, or the 3rd dozen. 32.40% 2x

Special Bets 

Special bets are available in the European or French variants of online roulette. American roulette doesn’t offer the option to place special bets so this should be kept in mind before you learn about them. Special bets are also sometimes referred to as call bets instead because they’re usually ‘called’ or ‘announced’ when you’re playing roulette in person.

In fact, you’ll notice that these special bets aren’t on the standard roulette table, but most variants offer these types of bets on an additional table dedicated to these bets, next to the regular roulette table. Since these bets are more common in the French version of roulette, you’ll notice that all the names are in French. 

  1. Les Voisons du Zéro – This bet translates to ‘neighbours of zero’ and covers the numbers, or ‘neighbours’ of zero. It covers a total of seventeen numbers that are between 22 and 25 (including both numbers). You need a minimum of nine chips to place this type of bet
  2. Jeu Zero – Translating to ‘zero game’, the Jeu Zero is a bet on the seven numbers closest to the zero (including zero) and it requires a minimum of four chips to place it. 
  3. Les Finales – There are two types of Les Finales bets in roulette: Finales en Plein and Finales a Cheval. The Finales en Plein bet is a bet on the numbers which end with the same number while the latter is a bet on the splits of the numbers in the Finales en Plein bet. This is one of the most complicated bets in roulette since it’s so specific. 
  4. Tiers du Cylindre – This bet type is French for ‘third of the wheel’ and it’s a bet on one-third of the wheel. The numbers in this bet are 33 through 27
  5. Les Orphelins – Les Orphelins, or ‘the orphans’ in English, is a bet that covers the two sections of the wheel outside the Tiers du Cylindre and Voisins du Zéro bet sections. It includes eight numbers which are 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31, and 9

Online Roulette Tips & Strategies

Here are a few online roulette tips and strategies we recommend both for new players and online roulette veterans:

  1. If you’re new at online roulette, look for games that use the En Prison rule. This rule will ‘freeze’ your even money bet if the ball lands on zero.
  2. Playing single zero roulette will give you a higher chance to win.
  3. Always make outside bets. Despite giving fewer rewards, they have the highest chance of succeeding.
  4. Play within your bank roll. Don’t bet more than you are willing to lose.
  5. Only place bets you understand. Stick to the easier bets if you’re a beginner.
  6. Be rational when it comes to selecting numbers for your bets. Chances are that your lucky number or your pet’s birthday won’t get you that win. Diversifying your bets will give you a higher chance to win.
  7. Don’t forget that roulette is a game of chance. Don’t take a loss personally and play to have fun!

Frequently Asked Questions About Online Roulette

Is online roulette based on Luck?

Yes. Online roulette uses RNG to pick out numbers during our games. We use licensed games that we purchase from reputable providers, so our online roulette games match those in casinos.

What are the odds on green in roulette?

Depending on the type of roulette variant you are playing, your odds on green may vary. If you’re playing European roulette with just a single zero, your odds are 17 to 1. If you are playing American roulette on the other hand, your odds are higher (due to there being two green pockets, one of 0 and one of 00), at 35 to 1.

Are there any tricks to win in Roulette?

As we previously mentioned, there are some online roulette tips you can follow. The best roulette bets are outside bets, as they have the highest chance of hitting. It’s always a good idea to set some money aside for less risky outside bets.
