Live Roulette Online
Roulette is the most famous of all casino games. You would be hard pressed to find a single casino anywhere in the world that did not have at least one roulette table. The game is one of the oldest casino games still being played today, and the roulette wheel itself has become a representative symbol for gambling recognized worldwide. So it is no surprise that, since the dawning of the online casino, the game of roulette has been one of the many games on which on may make a wager when gambling online.
Online roulette is much the same as playing live roulette in any real casino. The betting field is exactly the same, the representation of the wheel looks exactly like a real roulette wheel, and the rules and payout odds are the same as on a live roulette table. So anybody who is already familiar with the game will have no trouble catching on to what to do when playing roulette online. The only major difference between online roulette and a live roulette table is that the numbers are chosen using software known as a random number generator rather than an actual ball spinning around a rotating wheel. However, a representation of the ball and wheel is always present to create the environment of a live roulette table.
Most of the online roulette tables you will find have no actual dealer spinning the wheel and calling for bets. On these tables you are the only player and are free to take as much time as you wish in placing your bets, then you spin the wheel yourself with the click of a button. However, you may, on occasion find an online roulette table that does have a live dealer working the table. In such cases there will often be several players placing bets on the same table.
When playing on a roulette table with a live dealer, you will only have a specific amount of time in which to place your bets. Once that time limit is up, the dealer will announce that there will be no more bets accepted, and the option to place any bets will be unavailable. The dealer will then “spin” the wheel, which is really just starting the random number generating software, and the winning number will be called upon completion of the animation sequence that allows you to see the wheel spinning and the little white ball bouncing from slot to slot until it finally decides in which slot it will rest.
Roulette tables with live dealers running the table will often have several players betting on them, so you will find it to be a much more social environment than playing many online roulette tables on which you are only playing by yourself. You can chat it up with friends as the bets fly and the wheel spins and enjoy a roulette environment much like that you might find in a live casino. Many players who have taken to online gambling prefer this type of table, if for no other reason than for the social aspect.
