Our online roulette variations are expansive, opening up countless unique roulette experiences for you to enjoy this much loved game.

It’s all in the name of the most popular version - American roulette, aka Double Zero. Instead of one zero, the wheel has two. Visually, 0 and 00 are opposite each other on the wheel. And as you might expect, this extra pocket in play adjusts the odds, spiking the house edge from 2.7% to 5.26%.
There’s only one zero in European roulette. Zeros are no heroes but with one less pocket in play, the odds become a tad more favourable. House edge sits around 2.7% versus American roulette’s 5.26%.
Keeping on the Euro single zero roulette wheel, the betting board is laid out a little differently. The addition of rules like ‘la partage’ and ‘en prison’ give the French roulette a little more flare and favourable odds. For example, ‘la partage’, literally translating ‘to share’, will return outside bets should the ball drop on zero. Seems fair, oui?
While video animation is great, you’ll get the live casino buzz and ambience right in your own home with online live dealer roulette. LeoVegas offers a myriad of choices, with beautiful croupiers chatting, and talking you through bets before spinning the wheel so you can hear it tinker and spindle till it drops with a clunk.
If you like roulette with one ball, try playing with more! Multi-ball roulette plays with up to ten balls simultaneously spinning on the wheel. Payouts are adjusted by being split by the number of balls in play. Serious fun.
Definitely the cutest version of roulette. A mini wheel cuts the pocket countdown to 13.
Just like multi-ball roulette means more balls, you guessed it, multi-wheel means more wheels. Increase the action by having more wheels in play with only one betting grid that’s applicable to all.
If Fast & Furious was a game and not a seriously sequential series of over-priced movies, you’d land on auto roulette. Clocking speeds of up to 80 games an hour, this is the Top Gun of online casino action for those who have a need for speed, and possibly greed.
When betting rounds are put to supersonic speeds, that’s speed roulette. Many speed roulette games have decreased betting time to a mere 30 seconds, instigating fast-paced play for those feeling the crunch of time, or the need for speed.
Evolution has electrified online roulette by introducing a game show-esque version of speed-induced play and lightning bolts, that can strike numbers with multipliers of up to x500.
All roulette tables follow the classic version of a roulette table, but a few variations exist. Because you’re still learning how to play roulette, we recommend starting with the European roulette table before moving on.
The traditional roulette table arrangement divides the table into 37 sections, each with a full number ranging from 0 to 36. The number 0 is always green, while the rest are reds and blacks. If you look closely around the grid’s edge, you’ll notice 12 more divisions known as the Outside Bets.
Following the same structure as the table has, a standard roulette wheel contains 37 numbers. 18 of which are black (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31, 33, and 35) and the remaining 18 which are red (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 32, 34, and 36). The final number is 0, and this is the only green number on both the wheel and the roulette table layout.
As with all online casino games, learning about house edge will help wrap your head around why odds are what they are. In American roulette, ‘true odds’ are not in play. With 38 pockets on the wheel - 36 numbers plus 0 and 00, that’s true odds of 37 to 1. But the payday is 35:1. The difference, attributed to those pesky 0s, is how and why the house has an advantage.
American roulette house edge - 5.26% (0 and 00 in play)
European roulette house edge - 2.76% (0 in play only)
Blackjack (for sake of comparison) house edge - .50%
It’s notable because all roulette odds are based on the number of bets. But, for those who aren’t math inclined, our list below takes care of that for you. Like blackjack, payouts are stated as a x:1 ratio. If you win, you’ll get x dollars for every dollar bet. A straight-up bet pays 35:1 so using this info, a $2 bet would earn you the $2 back plus $70.
Straight Up bet - 35:1
Split bet - 17:1
Street bet - 11:1
Corner bet - 8:1
Double Street bet - 5:1
Four & Five bet - 6:1
Even bets: Dozen, Column, Red/Black, Odd/Even, High/Low - 1:1
Roulette bets are mostly characterized by their position on the betting grid, commonly falling into one of two main categories - Inside and Outside bets.
Inside bets are made within the numeric grid and include number-centric bets like Straight Up, split, street, corner, and four & five number bets.
Off grid is for outside bets. Most commonly, it’s red vs black, even vs odd, or high vs low. Even though columns and dozens are number bets, they fall under outside bets as chips are placed along the perimeter. In some variations of roulette, you’ll venture into call and special bets.
If you’re a beginner, a great place to start is with outside bets. They may pay less when hit, but they’ll provide the perfect introduction to roulette betting.
As basic as it gets and useful if you’ve got a lucky number or two in mind. A Straight Up bet is placed directly on a single number. It’s got the biggest return, paying 35:1.
One bet covering two adjacent numbers. To bet, place your chip on the line separating them. If one of the two hits, it pays 17:1 while a Straight Up bet pays 35:1 (hence, the split namesake).
Here’s a helpful tip - visualize the betting grid as a series of upward rows. In roulette, a street is one of these upward sets of three. To bet, place a chip on the outer grid line on the lowest of the trio (for example, a chip on the outer bottom line of 1, would cover 1-3). Street bets pay 11:1.
It’s a double-up on the split bet. Instead of two numbers, you’re covering four adjoining numbers. For bingo players, it’s the postage stamp of roulette! To bet, place your chip where the four intersect, and you’re covered for all four numbers with a payday of 8:1. Get savvy with the lingo, as this bet may also go by Quad Bet or Square Bet.
If a street covers three numbers, you can easily derive that a double street covers six. Just as you would in a street bet, one chip is placed on the grid’s lower border. To cover two streets side by side, place your chip on the line between the two and expect a 5:1 payday.
Often referred to as the ‘first four’ or ‘basket’, this bet specifically covers 0-1-2-3 and pays 6:1.
The five numbers bet covers a group of five, specifically 0, 00, 1, 2, and 3. Landing any of these numbers pays 6:1. Heads up, it’s also known as one of the worst bets in roulette!
A baker’s dozen of 12 is covered by this bet. But, each dozen is sequential with three dozens to choose from, 1-12, 13-24, and 25-36. It pays 2:1 or said simply, it’s a double-up win.
On the roulette grid, we’ve established that the upward sets of three are rows or street bets. Now, let’s cut the grid across into columns. For example, 1-4-7-10-13-16-19-22-25-28-31 & 34 would be your first column choice, and there are three columns total. This is a 2:1 payday.
The winning number is irrelevant with a red-black bet as you’re simply betting on colour. It’s an even payday, 1:1, but keep in mind you’ve got colourless 0s in play that gives the house an edge, so it’s not quite a 50/50 shot.
Roulette numbers 1 through 36 are split into high and low. Bet ‘low’ to cover 1-18 or high for 19-36. High-Low bets pay even money.
Self-explanatory here, place your bet on odd or even. Again, it’s a 1:1 even payday but the zero(s) change the edge up from a mere 50/50 bet.
Let’s remember that lady luck rules the wheel. But, over time, mathematicians and roulette aficionados have created strategies to help favour their odds or at least keep their bankrolls at bay. These strategies are often referred to as ‘systems’ since they involve a series of betting plays rather than one-shot wins.
Let’s look at one of the simplest and most popular - the Martingale System. Every time you lose a bet, re-do the bet at double the wager. Basically, you’ll recoup losses when you win and when you do win, it’s time to reset your wager back to its original amount. Repeat!
Another popular mouthful and math-full is the Fibonacci Sequence. This strategy follows a numerical system in which each number is the sum of the two preceding it. Whenever a betting round is lost, bets are increased by the last two numbers in the system. When you win, decrease it by moving it down two places. See what we mean? Math heavy.
Another top choice is Labourchere but it requires a big, fancy budget as bets increase at an exponential rate. So, let’s reserve this one for Liberace!

We sure think so! Given the graphical nature of this game, with its big beautiful black and red wheel at the forefront, it’s a game that lends itself nicely to desktop and mobile play. Whether you enjoy portrait or landscape, mobile online roulette is extremely fun and entertaining. As with all mobile games, the layout is simplified and intuitive.
Rather than having zero difference, the difference is in the zeros. See what we did there? American or Double Zero has both a zero (0) and a double zero (00) on the wheel, while European roulette only has one. Given that there’s one less pocket on the wheel, the odds are a little better in Euro roulette.
Yes, you can bet on zero (0) or double zero (00) if you’re playing American roulette. Much like a Straight Up bet, these pay 35:1.
Well, what’s the definition of a safe bet - the best odds? If you look at it that way, the best odds fall to even bets like red/black or odd/even. Those offer around 48% odds but because of that, they offer even money (1:1). Funnily, this is the most popular bet.
Roulette strategies are often referred to as ‘systems’. We’ll focus here on the Martingale system as an example because of its simplicity and popularity. Following this strategy, you’d increase bets after you lose. This way, you’re banking on recouping losses when you win. Once you win and get that money back, start back at the beginning by betting your initial wager. Repeat.
The highest payout is for a Straight Up bet, which is a bet on one number. For basic roulette on the regular-sized wheel, that’s a 35:1 payout.
Roulette is a game of random chance on a wheel ruled by lady luck. But, a recent wheel history is always available to view. Now, it sure doesn’t tell you with any certainty what’s likely to come next but you can divulge hot and cold numbers or a red or black storm (when one colour is favoured on recent spins). Again, it’s a game of chance so take this with a grain of salt.
Math is a true friend to gamblers. Roulette payouts are a simple equation of Bet X Odds. So, let’s say you bet 5 chips on a Straight Up bet that pays 1:35. That’s 5 x 35 for a fat daddy payday of $175.
