When you play roulette online at most online casinos, the player places a bet on a color, number, or group of numbers on the online Roulette table. The online roulette ball is spun, and the slot on the Roulette wheel where the ball finally stops determines winnings.

For most Java no download roulette games, the tables are marked with the numbers "zero" and "1-36". The numbers are colored red and black in an alternate fashion with "0" being green.

When you are ready to start gambling, enter your wager amount by choosing any chips (a marker will point to the chips you have selected), and click on any area on the virtual roulette table.

For most of these games you can remove the chips from the table by clicking on the right mouse button. Once your bet is placed, click on the "spin" button to continue. When the virtual roulette wheel stops spinning, it will show the number that the roulette ball landed on.

If the number and or color match your selection, your online balance is credited with the payout funds.

A typical minimum Roulette bet is $1 and a typical maximum Roulette bet is $100 for a specific betting spot or $250 for the whole table.

Some winning tips for roulette players :

  • Pick a section of the wheel and bet on the numbers adjacent to it.
  • Try the same eight numbers consecutively (max 5 times) for the best chances to win.
  • Always make a group of predetermined wagers rather than playing all over the table.
  • Make consistent bets at the casino roulette table.

Let’s look at the house edge. On an American wheel, there are 38 spots: 1-36, plus 0 and 00. Atlantic City has a special rule, which reduces the house edge to 2.7% on even money bets. This means you lose only half your bet if 0 or 00 comes up on an even money bet.

European games have an ‘en prison’ option, which decreases the house advantage to 1.35%, but it's not really available in the U.S. When 0 comes up on even money bets, your bet is "imprisoned" and rides again for the 2nd spin. If you win the 2nd spin, your bet is "released from prison" and you get it back. You do not get paid for the win, but it is better than losing when playing roulette online.
