How to Play Roulette Online?

Getting your head around how to play roulette casino games online couldn’t be easier, because each version is similar in terms of fundamental gameplay. To get the ball rolling, you will need to decide on your bet size – in other words, how much are you willing to risk?

This is done by selecting ‘chips’, which you will see at the bottom of the screen. Next, you need to select and confirm your bets and spin the wheel. The classic roulette games layout shows 37 whole numbers – between 0 and 36. Every number will be green, red, or black.

If you decide to play American roulette, you will notice there are two zeros – one is an American ‘double zero’, and the other is a standard single. French Roulette sticks with the one zero position found in European roulette. Exclusive to the French version is also the ‘La Partage rule’.

Around the edge, you will see ‘outside bets’ – which includes ‘dozens’, ‘even money’, and ‘columns’ – all of which are seen on European and American roulette. The online roulette ball will whizz around the wheel before landing one of the aforementioned numbers.

You win instantly if you have correctly picked the right colour or single/group of numbers. Online roulette casino games at Fruity King really is one of the most colourful and all-immersive game types around! Fancy something different? Try our blackjack online games today.

Top Roulette Strategies

Whilst we would like to offer you some winning strategies – the truth is when playing online roulette, there are no guarantees of unforetold riches. This is one of the original games of chance, that’s part of what makes it so fun to play.

Each and every time you play roulette, your experience is as random as the next persons. This is thanks to RNG (Random Number Generator) software added to all casino games to ensure fairness and true randomness. 

Even Albert Einstein famously had a go at cheating roulette, deducting that it couldn’t be done – unless one was to steal chips without being seen!

You may have also heard of the Martingale system strategy whereby players increase and decrease bet sizes based on the previous spin. This has been proven not to work, as eventually – the system fails. 

The best option is just to enjoy the game and let chance decide – while ensuring you never risk more than you can afford to lose.

History Of Roulette

The roulette we know and love today was reportedly invented by French mathematician and inventor Blaise Pascal in the 1600s. Roulette means ‘small wheel’ in French and there have been heaps of variations over the centuries, some resembling lotteries, others more like card games.

When European settlers arrived in New Zealand, it’s strongly believed that they brought their fondness of lotteries, horse racing, playing cards and games with them. This led to a mixing pot of indigenous New Zealanders and European newcomers enjoying gambling.

Eventually in 1994 New Zealand’s very first casino ‘Christchurch Casino’ was opened. Offering delighted players the chance to play roulette, pokies, and the money wheel – as well as poker championships. Following the popularization of the internet, the majority of people play roulette online now.
