Introduction to Online Roulette

Developed in 18th century France, Roulette has grown into one of the most recognizable online casino games in the world. The word roulette is French for ‘little wheel’, but there’s nothing little about the excitement that comes with playing this popular table game at Bodog Casino. Roulette has transformed quite a bit over the years and today there are several versions of online Roulette available for real-money betting. The game may seem complicated with so many betting options and payout odds to choose from, but online Roulette is actually quite simple once you have a basic understanding of how the game works.

 

Types of Roulette

The game of Roulette has undergone many changes and this has led to several variations now being played at online casinos. There’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing a type of Online Roulette, but it helps to have a clear understanding of how each game works. The two most prominent types of Roulette are European Roulette and American Roulette.

  • European Roulette
    As the most popular form of Roulette at Bodog’s online casino, European Roulette is probably the version with which you are most familiar. The European Roulette board and wheel have a total of 36 numbers split between red or black. There is also a single green zero (0) placed at the top of the board.
  • American Roulette
    In the American version of Roulette, there’s a green double-zero (00) added to the board and wheel. This may not seem like a big deal but over time it can make a huge difference since you now have two green zeros on the Roulette wheel. It’s also worth noting that the order of the numbers on the American Roulette wheel is different than the European Roulette wheel, although this doesn’t impact the game’s odds.

 

Rules of Online Roulette

Playing online Roulette is all about predicting the outcome of the next spin. Roulette players can choose to place bets on the inside or the outside of the board. With inside bets, you’re betting on an exact number or a small combination of numbers. These inside bets provide a higher payout since the odds of hitting a single number are low. With outside bets, you’re betting on more likely outcomes such as red/black or even/odds. These Roulette bets come with more modest payout odds but provide a much better chance to win a real money payout.

Once a Roulette player has decided which numbers and/or colors they want to bet, they simply need to place their chips on the table in the corresponding position. When the time for online betting is done, the croupier (Roulette dealer) will close the betting session and spin the Roulette wheel. When the white ball comes to rest in one of the wheel’s pockets, the croupier will announce the winning number and payout the winnings to anyone who correctly predicted the outcome. From there, the Roulette board is cleared and the fun starts all over again!

 

Roulette Odds and Payouts

As mentioned in the section above, the odds and payouts in online Roulette can vary greatly between the different types of bets. Let’s take a look at the various odds and payouts associated with each type of Roulette bet:

 

BET TYPE

ODDS
Single Number (Straight Up Bet) 35 to 1
Two Numbers (Split Bet) 17 to 1
Three Numbers (Street Bet) 11 to 1
Four Numbers (Corner Bet) 8 to 1

Twelve Numbers (Dozens Bet) 2 to 1
Eighteen Numbers (1-18 or 19-36) 1 to 1
Red or Black 1 to 1
Odd or Even 1 to 1

 

Online Roulette Strategy

As a game of chance, there’s no guaranteed formula for success in online Roulette. Having said that, there are certain online Roulette betting strategies that can help you along the way. Here are the three most popular betting strategies for Roulette, but keep in mind they are ideally designed for even money bets found on the outside of the Roulette board.

  • The Martingale System
    Arguably the most famous Roulette betting strategy of them all, the Martingale System is based on the theory of progression. With this Roulette strategy, players will double their bet amount after every loss. This is continued up until the player wins a bet, at which point the betting cycle restarts at the original bet amount.
  • The D’Alembert System
    This Roulette strategy follows the same principles as the Martingale System, only it’s far less aggressive. In the D’Alembert System, Roulette players must increase their bet amount by one after every loss and decrease by one after every win. This is another Roulette strategy based on the theory of progression, only the highs and lows are far less extreme when compared with the Martingale System.
  • The Fibonacci System
    Based on the famous mathematical sequence, this Roulette betting strategy implements a series of numbers where each bet amount is equal to the two previous bet amounts combined. Every time you win, the sequence increases by one digit and each loss means the player would go back two places in the sequence.
