What is Live Roulette Online?

Few casino games are more visually appealing than roulette, so what does live roulette online have to offer? The answer is: quite a lot. For a start, you’ll still be playing at a real casino table. Secondly, there’ll be a professional table croupier present. Live chat is often enabled too.
To ensure an authentic casino experience, live online roulette uses clever camera work and software. The roulette wheel has sensors fitted so that results appear immediately onscreen. There’s a seamless connection between the UI of the casino platform and the action on the table. You’ll see and hear the spin of the wheel.

The Roulette Wheel

Roulette is a fun casino game that relies heavily on luck. A wheel is spun with a ball in it, which eventually settles into one of 37 or 38 numbered pockets. Half of these pockets are red in color and the other half are black. Players can place various bets on the outcome.

The possible bets a roulette player can place include the following:

  • Single number
  • Red or black
  • Odd or even
  • High or low (i.e. above or below 18)
  • Columns
  • Corner bets (a bet on four numbers at once)
  • Dozens
  • Split (betting on two numbers at once)
  • Street bet (any number in a row of three)

About American Roulette

American and European roulette differ in two key ways. The American roulette wheel has two zero pockets (0 and 00) and its numbers are ordered differently. The extra 00 pocket increases the house's edge from 2.7% to 5.26%, since the chance of the ball landing on red or black is reduced.
American roulette is widely condemned among the gambling community because of its extra house bias. However, there are advantages. It’s widely accessible and often available with smaller minimum bets. Some players are familiar with the numbers and don’t like change. There are also less bonus restrictions on American roulette at some online casinos.

About European Roulette

With its single 0 pocket, European roulette has a smaller house edge than the American version. In other words, the odds of winning are marginally greater at 1 in 37 instead of 1 in 38. As well, some European roulette rules give gamblers half their wagers back if the ball lands on the zero.
The actual payout for a single number win is the same on a European roulette wheel as it is on an American one. It’s 35 to 1. You don’t win more on a European wheel in any one visit, but you’ll win slightly more often. That’s why, all else being equal, you should go European.

Play Roulette in New Zealand

If you want to visit a brick-and-mortar casino in New Zealand for a roulette game, there are six to pick from. Two are in Queenstown and the others are in Hamilton, Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch. The Auckland casino is the largest, and only the latter two are not run by Skycity Entertainment.
Online gambling in New Zealand is permitted provided the website is based in another country. Luckily, it’s easy to find a game of roulette on one of the many international casino websites, many of which welcome New Zealanders and accept the New Zealand Dollar as payment. This is handy, as it avoids conversion charges.
