Playing live roulette online

OK so if you have stumbled across this page then chances are you have some interest in the game of roulette.  No doubt you’ve played it at a casino somewhere, and maybe even online… but have you played it live online?   I would hazard a guess possibly not…and I guess this because it is a reasonable new roulette platform.   So what it it?

It’s played online.  But this is where its similarity to traditional online roulette games whose outcomes are determined by random number generators and presented by computer graphic simulations ends.  In live roulette the game you are playing is conducted by an actual croupier using a real roulette wheel and ball.  A real-time video feed of the game is fed to your computer so that you can see the the ball drop, spin and outcome, as if you were sitting at the table.

Of course different casinos/software developers have slightly different functionality and look and feel to their roulette games and also offer different roulette variations (French, European, American etc), but broadly speaking the way the game is delivered is the same.

We have set out more details of various live roulette options available at our live roulette.  The variations currently available in live format are also examined at out live European roulette, live French roulette, live American roulette and live Asian roulette pages respectively (also accessible from top menu).
