Due to changed regulations in October 2020, online gambling sites cannot offer jackpot and table games such as B. Roulette and Blackjack on the German market.


Although its origins are somewhat mysterious, most believe that Roulette dates back to the 18th century, when its first incarnation was invented by a French mathematical genius named Blaise Pascal.

The gambling classic is still among the most popular table games today and has been immortalized in numerous Hollywood blockbusters. Almost everyone who has ever set foot in a land-based arcade has enjoyed taking a spin on an exquisitely crafted wooden wheel, lured by the prospect of “bringing the house down.”

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, players can now enjoy both digital-only and live versions of Roulette in any Online Gambling Site they want, supported by a handful of leading game providers. You no longer have to head to your local gambling hall to play a quick game of Roulette, as advances in mobile software give players complete freedom in their gaming decisions.

The roulette table

It usually includes the tableau and the roulette wheel located at one end of the table. In some cases in Europe, the table has a double-sided layout with the wheel in the middle. A croupier monitors the bets. A second croupier is present if too many players gather around the table. He is called a check-racker (or mucker) and helps stack the chips.

Roulette gameplay

First, players must purchase one or more coloured chips from the dealer. Each player uses different coloured chips, so everything is clear about each person’s bet. All chips usually correspond to the table minimum.

Second, players must place one or more chips on a specific number; third, the croupier spins the ball; and fourth, if the ball with your number on it comes to rest in a number slot, the players win. There are other types of bets, too, but more later.

Online Roulette Game Rules

The roulette wheel or cylinder has 36 numbered ball compartments in red and black. In addition to numbers 1 to 36, the wheel contains a green 0. American roulette games often use double zeros (00) and a single nil (0).

The player places his bet by clicking on a chip and then the desired area on the tableau. The round will start by clicking on SPIN, and the ball will be released. A win occurs when the player’s bet includes the number on which the roulette ball stops.

Bet Types

In European Roulette, the player can place inside bets, outside bets, call bets and special bets.

Inside bets

Inside bets are those placed on specific numbers on the tableau.

  • Straight, 35:1 – This bet is placed on a single number.
  • Split, 17:1 – A bet placed on the line between two adjacent numbers.
  • Three Line (Street bet), 11:1 – To bet on a line of three numbers, the player places the chip on the line under the bottom number in the line.
  • Corner, 8:1 (Corner Bet) – A corner bet is a bet on 4 numbers. To place a corner bet, the chip is placed on the corner of 4 numbers. A corner bet can also be placed on the 0, 1, 2, and 3 by placing the chip on the corner of the 0 and the row of 1, 2, and 3.
  • Six Line, 5:1 – This bet allows the player to select six numbers in two adjacent lines. Six-line bets are made by placing the chip at the bottom centre of the two rows.

Outside bets

Outside bets are placed on different areas of the tableau where diverse numbers are grouped together.

  • Column, 2:1 (Column Bet) – A column bet allows the player to bet on a horizontal group of twelve numbers. To make this bet, you place a chip on one of the three areas labelled 2:1.
  • Dozen, 2:1 (Dozen Bet) – A dozen bet is a bet on four rows of three numbers. To make this bet, the player places a chip on the first 12, second 12 or third 12.
  • Red/Black, 1:1 – The player can choose the red or black colours on the roulette wheel with this bet.
  • Even/Odd, 1:1 – An even/odd bet allows the player to bet on whether the ball will land on an even or odd number. 1-18/19-36, 1:1 – Here, the player can choose half of the numbers for a single bet.

Call bets

Call bets are made on a series of numbers appearing on the cylinder. These bets can be placed by placing chips on the roulette wheel, which is opened by clicking the wheel icon at the bottom left. Call bets include:

  • Neighbors and Numbers - This is a bet placed on any number and its neighbours, the numbers before and after the main number as they appear on the roulette wheel. With a ‘Neighbors and Numbers’ bet, you can bet on up to 8 neighbours (17 numbers in total).
  • Zero - A zero bet (zero game) is a bet on a series of seven numbers: 12, 35, 3, 26, 0, 32 and 15. To make this bet, place the bet on the area marked ZERO.
  • Tiers - A Tiers bet places a bet on a series of twelve numbers: 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16 and 33. To place a Tiers bet, place the bet on the area marked TIERS.
  • Orphelins - This is a bet on a series of eight numbers: 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31 and 9. To make an Orphelin bet, place the bet on the area marked ORPHELINS.
  • Voisins – A Voisins bet is a bet on seventeen numbers: 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26, 0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2 and 25. To place this bet, place the stake on the area marked VOISINS.

Special bets

These are variants of call bets that can be made by clicking on the ‘Favourite Bets’ button at the bottom of the playing field. Special bets include: Jeu Zero, Voisins du Zero, Tiers du Cylinder, Finales en plein, Finale e cheval, Orphelins en plein, Orphelins a cheval, Black Splits and Red Splits.

Custom bets

After placing the chips on the cylinder, the player can click on the SPECIAL BETS icon and then the FAVOURITE BETS tab and save a bet as a custom type, making it available for future gaming sessions.

Roulette variants

Roulette has two main versions – the European version and the American version, which you can find at Wildz.

The main difference between these two versions is the roulette wheel. The European version has 35 red and black numbers and a single number slot for the green 0. The American version contains all these numbers and an additional slot - the 00. American Roulette gives a house edge of 5.3%, while the European version gives the house edge an advantage of 2.7%.

The other main difference between the two roulette variants is what happens when the roulette ball lands on the zeros. In the American version, all outside bets are lost if the ball lands on one of the zeros, as the American wheel has two different zeros - 0 and 00. In the European version, if the ball lands on 0, you do not automatically lose the outside bet. With a 0 in the European version, all outside bets are handled depending on one of the two French roulette variations:

  • En prison – This variant, which means “prison”, ‘holds’ the bets and the player does not win or lose any outside bets in this round. These bets remain valid for the next spin. All outside bets will be lost if the ball lands on 0 in the second round. Otherwise, these outside bets are treated like any regular game round.
  • La Partage – In this version, half of all outside bets are returned to the player if the ball lands on 0. The other half is given to the house. La Partage is a hedge against a significant loss on outside bets if the ball lands on a 0 on the tableau during a round of outside bets.

While there are other differences between the two versions, these are generally only noticeable in a traditional land-based arcade. For example, the American tableau is more compact, while the European roulette table is much larger and may require two croupiers to manage the bets of a single round. Traditional French roulette tables are so large that they often have the cylinder in the middle, with two different betting areas on each side of the wheel.
