Roulette is one of the older games common to casinos. Known as a table game it is such a casino staple that it would be strange to see a casino (both online and land-based) without a roulette wheel somewhere in its repertoire.
There are a number of different roulette variants available. For years, prior to the arrival of online casinos, these versions were to be found strictly in the continent of their origin – American Roulette could only be found on US soil and European Roulette only in Europe. With the advent of online casinos, players can now enjoy playing all variants of roulette with a simple click of the button.
Video roulette games such as Hot Roulette are set up exactly as if the player is in a casino. There is a small wheel with a dealer on hand. The table-betting chart is clearly laid out across the front of the screen allowing players to place their bets much as they would at a land-based casino. The dealer even continues dialogue when spinning the wheel. In this game though there is an added bonus as it is attached to a slot, which spins when the roulette wheel spins.
There are other options to playing roulette online and these come in the form of live games. Live games have become popular in recent years, as technology has advanced. A live game is where a room is set up with a live wheel and dealer. Live video feed is then streamed to the online players who can watch the wheel spin, place bets and interact with the dealer in the same way they would in a real casino. However, the bonus here is that players can do it from the comfort of their own homes.
With so many options, roulette is still very much a popular casino game.
