Five reasons to play Roulette online

The translation of Roulette in French is ‘little wheel’. Also known as ‘the devil’s wheel’, with all numbers totalling 666, the luck-based game reigns supreme in casinos all over the world. Origins of games similar to Roulette have been present in records dating as far back as ancient civilisations, and the creation of the wheel we know and love today has been widely enjoyed since 1655. 

In the modern day, it’s hard to find a casino that doesn’t house at least one Roulette wheel, but now, each variation – from European, to American, and different themed games of Roulette – are available at the tip of your fingertips when you play at an online casino!

Here are our top reasons as to why you’ll love playing Roulette online…

Online vs on-land

There are many reasons to play live Roulette games, the first one being that you can play the classic casino game, any time you want, from wherever you are! Not only this, but the ‘little wheel’ is available on any device, and whilst you don’t quite get the physical atmosphere you would normally find in a land-based casino, you will find that the bright lights, animations, and exciting music sets the scene for the similar thrill of an online casino. 

Casino bonuses

Many online casinos even offer casino bonuses, such as free spins when you sign up. You could use these on the famed slot machines, but why not make the most of the perks and see if the wheel will spin in your favour?

Themed games

With all the variations of the Roulette wheel available at your fingertips, there are even ‘lightning’, ‘speed’, and themed versions of the game for you to try your luck at. You’ll find classic gameplay, as well as different ways to bet and a whole unique spin on the game, unlike anything you’d find at a land-based casino.

Random Number Generators 

The ability to play against the computer is one thing that ensures gameplay is fair. Whilst land-based dealers are highly trained to keep games fair, computerised gameplay relies on a Random Number Generator (RNG) to generate the outcome of each spin. This works by the system generating a new sequence of numbers or symbols each second, so the moment you press ‘spin’, the outcome has already been decided. The sequence is deemed ‘random’, because it’s made up of undecipherable patterns.

Live casino 

If it’s the real-life dealer you love when playing Roulette, then online casinos also offer live Roulette – where you can play with other players, whilst a real-life dealer spins the wheel and hosts the game in real-time, from a specially designed studio. The game can be live streamed to any device, so it’s basically a portable casino! There are also themed games that offer unique experiences, such as Football Roulette. What’s more, there’s even a live chat feature, alongside multiple cameras, smooth transitions and exciting animations to make you feel truly immersed in the live casino experience.
