Looking to play roulette online? Then check out our range of standard and live online roulette games. They’ve been sourced from a number of big-name developers and offer the same exciting gameplay that you’d expect to find at a land-based casino.
Which Online Roulette Games Can I Play at Red Spins?
As with most classic casino games these days, there exist multiple versions of online roulette. While they all basically share the same iconic base game, there are a few differences worth noting. Here’s a guide to the roulette variants that you’ll find here at Red Spins Canada.
Immersive Roulette Live
Although ‘immersive’ is a term that can be applied to most of the latest online roulette games, especially those offered by Red Spins, in this case it refers to a specific live version developed by Evolution Gaming. Immersive Roulette follows standard European rules, albeit without La Partage or En Prison rules (more of that later). Streamed in super smooth HD from multiple angles, the game features female-only croupiers, an authentic roulette wheel and higher betting limits.
Netent’s Roulette Live also follows European rules with a 1 to 36 numbering system and a single zero. To add a sense of urgency and excitement, players are required to place their bets within a specific time limit. This particular version makes full use of Netent’s revered live dealer platform, offering HD streaming and a detailed but intuitive UI.
Double Ball Roulette Live Canada
As the name indicates, this roulette game features two balls. For inside bets, at least one of the balls has to end up in the player’s chosen pocket to pay out. However, for outside bets, both have to land within a particular number range to validate a win. So it makes sense to focus on inside bets, given the superior odds of winning.
Auto Roulette Live
There are no live dealers for games of Auto Roulette. Instead, the wheel spins automatically once all players have made their bets. Based on the French version and using the La Partage rule, Auto Roulette is extremely popular among low-rollers because of its low minimum betting requirement.
Auto Roulette VIP Live
Auto Roulette VIP features the same rules as standard Auto Roulette Live and is also played without a croupier. Although aimed squarely at high-rollers with a betting limit of £20,000, its small entry requirement of just 20p means that players with smaller budgets have also got a shot at winning something.
Both versions of Auto Roulette mentioned above comprise fast-paced, occasionally frantic game-play. Then you’ve got Evolution’s Speed Roulette which takes things to another level. Considered to be the fastest online roulette game in the world, players can only place their bets while the wheel is spinning. Additionally, the game engine features video number recognition that allows the dealer to start the next round the moment a player’s previous win has been captured.
French Roulette Gold
Microgaming’s French Roulette Gold is played with European rules and utilises the La Partage law. As a result, the RTP is slightly higher than many other roulette variants. It features an old-school interface that although dated by today’s standards, is pretty intuitive and easy to grasp. An auto-play feature has also been included which allows the player to select the number of revolutions the wheel should complete without interaction.
Dolphins Roulette is an aquatically-themed roulette/slot hybrid which follows standard European rules but includes a slot side-game. Based on the popular online casino slot, Dolphin’s Pearl, players can place side bets during actual roulette games for the chance to win some decent pay-outs – unusual, but highly original.
Auto Roulette Low
This is another roulette game that’s played without the help of a croupier and follows European Rules. Comprising high quality HD streaming, it is ideally suited to casual players and those with smaller budgets. Interestingly, the game incorporates certain French-styled bets such as ‘tiers’, ‘orphelins’ and ‘voisins du zero’.
Another roulette/slot hybrid here, this time from Extreme Live Gaming – based on European roulette rules and featuring a standard single pocket wheel, the game also includes an extra reel mechanism that’s based on the famed online slot, Book of Ra. During each spin of the roulette wheel, a slot reel also spins rewarding players who’ve correctly picked a winning symbol. It’s quite a cool addition to gameplay because it increases the RTP on what is in effect, a low-edge roulette game.
Classic Roulette follows traditional European rules and uses a single zero pocket. Available to play across multiple devices, its UI looks polished and is easy to use. Despite lacking the excitement of Speed and Auto Roulette, this offering from Playtech boasts a solid base game that closely follows classical rules and includes bets such as voisins su zero, black/red splits and tiers du cylinder – an addictive, no frills roulette game that’s perfect for casual players.
What are the Differences between American and European Roulette?
The main differences between American and European roulette can be seen in the layout of the actual wheel. For American games, the wheel includes a double zero so there are 38 numbered pockets. As the European wheel features just one zero, there are 37 numbered pockets. Because of these variations, American roulette has a 5.26% house edge compared the 2.70% edge that exists for French and European versions. The order of the numbers is also different: On European Roulette wheels, they’re arranged like so: 0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25, 17, 34, 6, 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33, 1, 20, 14, 31, 9, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26. For American Roulette wheels, the sequence is very different and laid out the following way: 0, 28, 9, 26, 30, 11, 7, 20, 32, 17, 5, 22, 34, 15, 3, 24, 36, 13, 1, 00, 27, 10, 25, 29, 12, 8, 19, 31, 18, 6, 21, 33, 16, 4, 23, 35, 14, 2.
What are the Rules of Roulette?
For those of you unfamiliar with this classic casino game, rest assured that the rules of roulette are pretty straightforward. A ball is dropped on to a revolving wheel that’s bounded by numbered pockets of alternating red and black colours. Beforehand, participants bet on the number(s) or colour(s) in which they think the ball will land. This is done by laying down chips on a special roulette table.
The Roulette Table
Although roulette table layouts vary slightly between American and Europe versions, they’re actually very similar in terms of appearances. In most cases, they feature three columns of betting areas which are numbered slightly differently, given the extra pocket used for American games. There are also nine additional betting boxes. Bets placed in the numbered columns are known as inside bets while chips placed in the additional betting boxes are called outside bets.
Inside bets are the most common types of bets in roulette games and are ideal for beginners. They come in a variety of different forms.
Straight-up bets can be made on numbers from 0 to 36. The chips are placed in the numbered box which corresponds to the player’s choice but must not touch its box’s borders. This is to prevent the croupier from confusing the wager for a split bet.
Also known as a combination bet, this type of wager requires the chips to be placed on the line in between two numbers. In essence, the player is splitting the worth of his chip(s) between the two numbers.
A corner bet permits players to wager on four numbers. It is made by putting the chips in the centre intersection of a square block of four numbers.
The street bet enables players to bet on any three-number row. To signify this type of wager, the chips must be placed on the outermost line of the very first number of a row.
This particular bet can be played in American roulette and relates to the numbers: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. Chips are placed on the outside corner line between the 0 and 1.
Six number bets can be placed on two adjacent rows of three numbers. Also called the line bet, it requires the player to put his chips on the leftmost intersection between two rows.
Once you’ve got a feel for the game, it’s worth trying a few outside bets. As with inside bets, they have a number of variations.
In Roulette games, the participants are allowed to bet on the colour in which they think the ball will eventually land. Pocket numbers are completely discounted for these types of wagers. To play a red/black bet, the chips are placed in a box below the ‘2 and 12’ betting areas. On most roulette tables, red and black are signified by colour-coded diamonds.
As the name indicates, odd/even bets related to the type of number in which a ball is predicted to land. They can be placed on both sites of the red or black betting boxes. Should the ball land in a zero all odds/evens bets are lost.
Hi or low bets are wagers which can be placed on specific number ranges. 1-18 is low while 19-36 is high. Areas for these betting types are marked on most tables as ‘1-18’ and ’19-36’. As with odd/even bets should the ball land in a zero, all bets are lost unless the ‘La Partage’ and/or ‘En Prison Laws’ are in play.
These types of wagers can be placed on the three columns which represent the pocket numbers. Roulette tables include betting areas under each column, in which the chips can be placed.
Snake bets relate to wagers that are put on the following digits: 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32 and 34. To make a snake bet, chips are placed on the corner of the number 34 box adjacent to the ‘19-36’ column. It gets its name from the shape formed by connecting the aforementioned numbers together on a typical roulette table.
Dozen bets allow players to wager on numbers in the range of 1-12, 13-24 and 25-36. Should the ball land in a 0 or 00, all bets are lost.
The following French roulette rules appear in some, but not all online European roulette games. Here’s a quick primer:
Translated as ‘the divide’, the La Partage rule pays half the value of all non-winning 1-18/19-36, Red/Black bets if the ball lands in the zero pocket.
En prison, which we won’t bother to translate for you, also covers even money bets and is a variation on the La Partage rule. If the ball lands in a zero the croupier places a marker next to the bet signifying that it’s ‘En Prison’. If the player makes a winning bet on the next spin of the wheel he receives his ‘en prison’ bet back.
