Live Roulette

live roulette

Roulette is a game that you can play online or at a real casino. Now to play live roulette with a croupier, you may think that you must visit a brick-and-mortar casino. Well, not you won't need to anymore. You can play live roulette from the comforts of your home, if you have an internet account and a fully functional web camera.

Play Live with Other Players around the World

Live casino roulette is a form of online roulette that allows you to play the game with live dealers and players from different places. You enter the roulette table at a live casino through a video or web cam and are able to place bets within the set time. Live casino roulette is an excellent option for those who miss excitement of a real world casino but do not have the time or resources to visit them.

The live dealers handling live roulette games are friendly and could be male or female. These croupiers are well trained and give you a feeling of playing roulette at live casinos.

Using Technology for Enhanced Online Casino Experience

Live roulette games are usually hosted by both the dealer and the players logging into their online casino accounts and activating the webcam for live communication. The video camera in the casino focuses on the dealer and the table. In some cases, the video is even zoomed into the wheel to give the players a clear picture.

At the end of the spin, the live dealer will announce the winning number and winner just as they would in a real world casino. The game continues as long as there are players at the table.

Live Dealers

Roulette is a simple game. There is a wheel with 37 slots that are numbered. The ‘croupier’ (the person employed by the casino to oversee the conduct of the game) spins the wheel. He then spins a ball in the reverse direction, and this ball runs along a circular track on the outer circumference of the wheel. Eventually, the ball loses its momentum and falls into one of the numbered slots.

If you have bet your money on that number, you win.

Did you know?

The word roulette in French means ‘little wheel’.

You can change your bet even as the wheel/ball is spinning. When the ball lands into a pocket, the croupier checks if anyone has bet on the winning number. If yes, he/she is paid.

How much can the winners expect to earn?

Because there are 37 slots, the chances of winning are exactly 1 in 37. These odds also mean that you should get £37 in total for every £1 you bet, but in reality the ‘house’ takes its cut and gives you only £34 or £35 (this is apart from your £1, so you would take home £35 to £36 at the end). 

Other ways of winning include betting on red or black. The payout is lesser, but you have greater chances of winning. The slot marked zero is green, so you lose if the ball falls into the zero slot.

In the closing scenes of the movie Fast Five, the always-positive Tego Leo places the $5 million he received for his part in the heist at Rio on a roulette table in Monte Carlo, betting on red; but his friend, the more practical Rico Santos, unable to stop Tego, places his own $5 million share on black, so that they can avoid a loss. The movie shows the ball falling into the green zero slot.

Another way of winning to bet on Even or Odd; or a range of numbers. 1-18 is called ‘Low’ and 19-36 ‘High’.

With a high-speed internet connection, you can watch the game live as the excitement unfolds. This is as good as being at the table in person. You only need a web camera to interact with the croupier.
