Live Roulette for New Zealand Players

When it comes to popular casinos games, roulette sits at the top of the list. There is just something that casino players love about hazarding a guess as to where that silver ball will land. Roulette is a highly entertaining game that has kept New Zealand gamblers entertained for centuries and now, due to advances in technology, you can play roulette without even having to leave your house. Roulette fans from New Zealand can find plenty of live roulette options at Betiton, and below we take a closer look at this game, to give you all the information you need to know about this game.

What is Live Roulette?

Live roulette is a fascinating way to enjoy online roulette. It is set up in a room that has been deliberately made to look exactly like a land-based casino, so you will find table games scattered around the room, and each table has a real-life dealer manning it. There are multiple cameras around the room to ensure that players do not miss any of the action. When you are playing virtual online casino games, everything is done using computer software, but with live games the real dealers will be doing everything in realtime instead. To play live games, all you need to do click on the game that interests you, and all the action will then be live streamed to wherever you are. One of the best things about visiting a live casino is that you can talk to the live dealer and anyone else who is playing at your table if you wish to. Thus, you can get a more immersive gambling experience than you would when you are playing virtual casino games. Live roulette is not the only live game that New Zealanders can play here – we also have the likes of live blackjack and baccarat. Just like roulette, these games are simple to learn, which is why they are also very popular with casino players around the world.

Live Roulette and Online Roulette – What is the Difference Between them?

Well, the main difference between the two is obviously that the online roulette does not have a live dealer, there are no real-life players sitting at the table, and there is not much of a casino atmosphere. Furthermore, when you are playing live roulette, you have the option interacting with the dealer at the table and other players thanks to a live chat box, which is not possible when you are playing virtual roulette. Apart from these differences, the two versions are pretty much the same.

Wondering what the Difference is between Live Roulette and Traditional Casino Roulette?

Well, the big difference between the two is that when you are playing live roulette, you do not have to bother putting on your best clothes and then make your way to the closest land-based casino. You can simply sit on your sofa or in your bed in your sweat pants and play until your roulette urges have been satisfied. We are not sure you would be allowed to stay for very long if you rocked up to a brick and mortar casino in your comfiest clothes, right? Another big difference between them is that live roulette can be played 24/7, whereas you will not come across many land-based casinos that are open all day.

How to Play Live Roulette

We have been in this business a long time, and we have yet to come across a casino player that has no issues with spending a lot of their time trying to figure out how a particular game is played. However, you do not have to worry about this when you are enjoying live roulette as it is very easy to play. In fact, we are no exaggerating when we say that it is just as easy as playing scratch cards. Below we are going to take a quick look at how to play some live roulette.

How Live Roulette Works

Follow these steps and you should never have any issues when it comes to playing our live roulette games:

  1. Go onto our live casino page and select the variant of live roulette that you would like to play
  2. Once the game has loaded, decide on what it is that you are going to bet on
  3. Decide how much your stake is going to be
  4. The dealer will then spin the wheel, and you will just have to hope that luck is with you
  5. If you predict right, then the dealer will pay you accordingly

How do you Bet on Live Roulette?

A complex betting system will even annoy those who have the most patience, but you will certainly be happy to find out that there really is nothing complex when placing live roulette bets. All that you have to do is decide how much your stake is going to be (the minimum stake will vary between tables), decide exactly what it is that you would like to bet on, and the click on it. The live dealer will acknowledge your bet request, and they will place chips down for you. Once everyone at the table has put down their wagers, the dealer will give the wheel a spin, and you then just keep your fingers crossed.

What Are Inside and Outside Bets?

When you are playing roulette, whether it is virtual, live, or at a brick and mortar casino, you will come across inside and outside bets. Below we shall take a look at the different bet types that New Zealand roulette fans can place their money on, and we are going to start with inside bets.

  • Straight – You put your money on one number only, and the payout is 35:1
  • Split – You put your money on two numbers that are next to each other on the wheel, and the payout is 17:1
  • Street – You put your cash on three numbers in a row, and the payout is 11:1
  • Corner – You put your cash on four numbers from a particular group, and the payout is 8:1
  • Line Bet – You put your money on two lines that are next to each other, and the payout is 5:1

So, these are the inside bets that you can place when playing roulette, and now we shall look at the different outside bets.

  • Black or Red – You put your cash on the ball landing on either a black or red pocket, and the payout is 1:1
  • Odd or Even – You put your money on the ball stopping on either and odd or even number, and the payout is 1:1
  • High or Low – You place your money on whether the ball stops on 1-18 or 19-36, and the payout is 1:1
  • Dozens – You put your cash on a group of twelve numbers, and the payout is 2:1
  • Column – You put your money on one of three columns, and the payout is 2:1

Bonuses, Minimum Stakes, and Limits

When you are playing live roulette, there will be different bonuses, stakes and limits depending on what variant of roulette you are playing. Thus, before you go ahead and start playing a new type of live roulette, you should take a bit of times to familiarise yourself with whatever limits are in play. You really do not want the scenario where you sit down at a table to play only to then find out that the minimum stake that you can place is more than the budget that you have set aside.

Strategies and Rules in Live Roulette Games

When you play at an online casino regularly you will soon realise that there are some games which have quite a few rules that you need to fully understand before you start to play. Such games can be difficult for new players to get to grips with, but there is no such issue when it comes to playing live roulette. We are pretty certain that you will be able to come to terms with the rules of roulette in a matter of minutes. Below we have listed the main rules for you:

  • You can place as many bets as you like, but this will obviously cost you more money
  • The dealer will give the wheel a spin and will then announce that no new bets are being taken
  • The wheel will come to a halt, and the ball will land in a pocket – those who predicted correctly will be paid accordingly by the dealer

You need some luck when playing live roulette, just like you do when you are enjoying some online slots, but there are plenty of roulette strategies available that can increase your chances of making a profit. Below we are going to take a look at three of the most popular roulette strategies – don’t forget, none of these strategies will guarantee a win. For that, it’s a matter of pure luck.

  • Martingale
  • D’Alembert
  • Fibonacci

Martingale: This is probably the most popular strategy for roulette. If you use this strategy, then you must put your stake (you should make it as low as possible) on an even money bet. You then keep on using the same value stake until you lose. When you lose, you double your stake for your next spin. If you are unfortunate and lose once more, you need to double your stake again. When you win again, start all over again, and place the same value stake that you placed when you first started playing. D’Alembert: This is a similar strategy to the Martingale, but it helps you make your bankroll last longer. This is another strategy for even money bets, and the first decision you have to make is the value of your stake. If your bet wins, then you decrease the stake value by 1. If your bet loses, then you increase the stake value by 1. The idea behind this particular strategy is that when you get as many wins as you do losses, you will make a profit. Fibonacci: This is known as a progressive strategy. You might already know about the Fibonacci sequence, but if not, then it has the following pattern – 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 13, 21, 34, 55 and so on. As you might have already noticed, the two previous values in the sequence are combined to give the next value in the sequence. If you decide to use this strategy, then you have to choose a number from the sequence that will be your stake. If you win your bet, then take two steps back and that number is now the value of your stake. If you lose your bet, then you take one step forward and this is your new stake for the next spin.

Live Roulette Numbers and Odds

You might think that the wheel is the same in all roulette variants, but this is not the case. The wheel you come across when enjoying some French and European roulette has 37 pockets, while the wheel in American roulette comes with 38 pockets. Now, you might say that this extra pocket will not make a difference, but it actually increases the house edge quite dramatically. Below you can see the house edge of the three popular variants of roulette.

  • European – 2.70%
  • American – 5.26%
  • French – 1.35% (on even bets only)

In French and European roulette, the numbers on the wheel are not in a sequence, but on the American wheel you will notice that the numbers are placed opposite the one that comes next in the numerical sequence. For example, opposite the number 18 you will find 19, and opposite the number 23 you will find 24.

What Are the Different Types of Live Roulette?

There are plenty of different variants of live roulette that you can enjoy, and below we are going to have a brief look at some of the main ones.

High Stake Roulette

This variant of roulette comes with the standard rules but, as you can guess from its name, it is a variant that allows those who love to place big bets to do so. Therefore, if you consider yourself to be a bit of a high roller, then this is a variation of roulette that you should try. The highest amount that you will be able to place will depend on the casino that you are playing at as well as the type of bet that you want to place.

Low Stakes Roulette

This variant also has standard roulette rules but, as the name suggests, it is a roulette variant that has been made for those roulette players who do not like to bet large sums of cash on every spin of the wheel. Therefore, if you like to play roulette just for some fun while still having a chance to win some money, this is the variant you have been looking for. Once more, the minimum stake that you will be able to bet will depend on the online casino and the bet type that you want to make.

European Roulette

If you are enjoying roulette outside of America, then it is probably very likely that you are playing European roulette. The wheel in this variant has the numbers 1-36 and there is one green 0. The house edge stands at 2.70%, which is not the lowest house edge around because online blackjack has a lower one, but it is certainly not too high.

French Roulette

This version has a European wheel, but there is a slight difference in the table layout, although it is nothing too drastic. However, there are two different rules that make it stand out from the European variant, and these are La Partage and En Prison. With the former, if you make an even bet and the ball stops on the green 0, you will be given half your wager back. However, the latter rule gives you the chance to leave this stake where it is and use it for your next spin.

American Roulette

The main difference between American roulette and European roulette is that there is a double zero on the wheel as well as single 0. This makes a huge difference as the house edge jumps to 5.25%. This high house edge is one of the reasons why European and French roulette is preferred by most roulette players.

Speed Roulette

If you are looking for the world’s fastest roulette game, then Evolution Gaming have got your back. When you play this game, you only have to wait 25 seconds in between spins, which means that you can enjoy 50 more spins in an hour. When you play this variant, you will be told to place your wagers when the wheel is being spun, which means that you never have to sit there and wait for someone at the table to place their bet. Apart from the speed of the game, you will find that is has the same rules as other variants.
