The Basics of Live Roulette

Live Roulette

Roulette is one of the most popular casino games associated to chance. A first class in-rim sensor roulette wheel will be found on all Betbit Casino Live Roulette tables. Live professional croupiers host the Fitzwilliam Roulette and VIG Roulette tables while the Expo Auto Roulette table is managed by an automated roulette wheel designed to spin on its own via auto play mode.

The gear found on all roulette tables are a roulette ball, 37 numeric slot wheels and a betting table with chips. European Roulette is the version of roulette used on the Fitzwilliam and Expo Auto Roulette tables while the VIG Roulette table can be played in the European or American version. As opposed to other versions of roulette the European version is distinguished for having only one single zero number on the wheel. The rest of the numeric slots go from 1 to 36 adding up to a total of 37 including the zero.

Inside and Outside bets are the two categories of bet types. Inside bets are placed on numbered fields, between two or at the corner of three or four numbers. Outside bets are placed outside of the numbered fields where you can bet on ranges of numbers or another aspect of numbers. Among these betting options you have the ability to bet on single numbers, ranges of numbers, the colors (red or black), or on even or odd numbers. The winning number and color is determined by the numeric slot where the roulette ball lands on after each spin. If the results on a spin coincide with your bet selections, the corresponding payout will be credited to your account.

FACTS ON LIVE ROULETTE

The largest payout on European Roulette tables is on a single number or a straight bet. The payout for this wager is 35:1. The smallest payout is even money or 1 to 1.

European Roulette has a lower house edge (2.70% house edge) than American Roulette (5.26% house edge). This becomes the main reason to justify the high demand of players inclined towards the European version of roulette seen at Betbit Casino.

French Roulette is similar to the European version for having only one single zero as well. However, French Roulette uses the La Partage rule which distinguishes this version from others. In European Roulette the numbers 1 to 36 oscillate between the color red or black except for the single zero which is green colored. The odds against winning are 37 to 1.
