The Different Types of Roulette Available at The Phone Casino

There are different types of roulette games, each with its own rules that affect the game in different ways. In this blog, we take a look at the variations available to enjoy when you play roulette online at The Phone Casino.

The basic rules of roulette

Before we get into the different types of roulette you can play here with us, it’s important to understand the basic rules of this casino game. Whether you play free roulette online or play for real money, on the surface the game is a very straightforward game to play. Gamblers place a bet on a number (or group of numbers) between 1 and 36, and hope that when the croupier spins the wheel and drops the roulette ball (also known as a “pill,”) it will come to rest on the selection they chose. In a nutshell, this is what the game is about. Where roulette gets more complicated is when it comes to the huge variety of bets available. 

The first category that we’ll look at is “outside bets” (so called because they appear on the outside of the betting table.) These include:

  • Red or black – A wager on the winning number being red or black.

  • Odd or even – A wager on the winning number being odd or even.

  • 1-18 or 19-36 – A wager that the winning number will either be 1-18 or 19-36.

  • Dozens – A wager that the winning number will be the first 12, second 12, or final 12 numbers.

  • Columns – A wager on which column on the betting area will contain the winning number.

The second category that we’ll look at is the “inside bets” (which you’ll make on the table grid containing the numbers.) These include:

  • Basket – A wager on the 0, (and 00 in American roulette,) 1, 2 and 3.

  • Corner – A wager on four numbers.

  • Six line – A wager on two adjacent betting lines.

  • Split – A wager on two adjacent numbers.

  • Straight – A wager on a single number.

  • Street/Trio – A wager on three numbers in the same row.

Now that you understand the most common wagers that you’ll find in roulette, it’s time to look at the different types of roulette that you’ll find at The Phone Casino, and how they differ.

American roulette

American roulette is a very popular version of the game, despite the fact that the wheel in American roulette has 38 slots and a house edge of 5.26% (this is greater than European roulette). Apart from this major difference, the game is very similar to its European counterpart.

European roulette

If you have a roulette strategy and are hoping to make the most out of your bankroll, you should play European roulette. This is because European roulette has a major advantage over its American counterpart: a lower house edge. 

While American roulette has both zero and double-zero green pockets on the roulette wheel, bringing the total number of slots to 38, the European version of the game only has a single zero green pocket, and so the European wheel only has 37 slots. This means that the house only has a 2.7% edge in European roulette (1 in 37,) compared to the 5.26% edge of American roulette (2 in 38.)

Key Bet Roulette

Key Bet Roulette is a unique version of roulette that follows the standard European roulette ruleset but also has a special “Key Bet” pocket on the wheel. In this variation of roulette, players can place a regular wager as well as a wager on the Key Bet side bet. This side bet can reward the player with a multiplier for their wager, or the pot, which is essentially a jackpot win if luck is on their side. 

Live dealer roulette

For a long time, if you played roulette online, you essentially played a video-game version of roulette, with the luck decided by a random number generator, otherwise known as an RNG. RNGs are audited by third-party organizations to ensure they are truly random and protect the integrity of the game. 

However, as broadband internet access became more common, a brand-new genre of games emerged: live dealer games. This type of casino game set out to bridge the gap between online play and the casino experience by live-streaming real casino games hosted by croupiers and dealers. It also found an audience in players who preferred their luck to be “real,” as opposed to being decided by an RNG. These games are usually hosted in special live dealer studios, but are also sometimes hosted at genuine brick-and-mortar casinos! As a player, you interact with the dealer and the game using a graphical interface on your computer or mobile device.

There are many different types of live dealer games, including highly popular casino table games like roulette, which is very well suited for the live dealer genre. And there’s no doubt that this new game genre has started taking over the online roulette scene. With multiple cameras, an engaging croupier and a real roulette table, one only has to play a few games to realize how different the live dealer experience is!

Live dealer speed roulette

Live Speed Roulette is almost identical to live dealer roulette, except there’s a much shorter time limit before the croupier spins the wheel and no longer accepts any bets. If you have a limited time to play but want to enjoy as many spins as possible, this is the live dealer version of the game to go for.
