What few players know: You can also enjoy roulette on the Internet directly from well-known casinos. Most roulette tables are broadcast from some kind of open-plan office. But some well-known casinos also stream their tables to online casinos, including:
- London’s Hippodrome Casino
- The Malta Casino
- Dragonara Casino (also in St. Julians on Malta)
Double Ball Roulette
If you want to play something unusual, you can try Double Ball Roulette. There you play with 2 balls at the same time, you can apparently only play this type of kettle game as online roulette.
Winnings of up to 1296 times the game stake are possible. However, for this you also have to hit both balls in the right field in a number bet. In any case, the volatility of this game is towering.
Deposits and withdrawals
The most popular payment methods for roulette in online casinos are:
- Payment by credit card
- Online banking via Trustly, Sofort or Rapid Transfer
- Online wallets such as Skrill, Neteller, MuchBetter and EcoPayz
- Paysafecard and CashtoCode
- Partially also cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum
For this purpose, we test the transactions of the respective casinos for security and for reliability in the payouts of winnings. By the way, there is no monthly deposit limit at live casinos on the Internet, unless you set one yourself.
Live Casino Chat
If you want, you can also chat with the other players. You can enter a text in a box that is visible to everyone. The croupier also follows the chat and responds verbally into the camera if necessary. This way you can also chat with the croupier.
It goes without saying that the rules of decency should be observed in the chat. You should not insult the croupier or other players. Otherwise you will be banned from the chat as well.
Minimum bet and table limit
The minimum and maximum bet varies depending on the table. There are many roulette tables where you can bet less than one euro, often even 20 or 10 cents per bet. However, some tables start as low as €5 per game. By the way, there are no casinos with a €1 betting limit in the live dealer area.
For high rollers, however, there are also tables where you can risk up to several thousand euros at once – sometimes this goes up to 10,000 euros and even higher at the VIP tables. At the normal tables, the limit is between 2000€ and 5000€ for color bets and between 100€ and 250€ for number bets.
The most popular online roulette hosts/providers
The live casino tables with roulette and other table games are not hosted directly by the online casinos themselves. Instead, there are a number of providers that offer the games and then connect with players through the live casinos.
The most well-known live roulette provider is Evolution Gaming. They are present in most online casinos with their games. Other live casino hosts besides Evolution are:
- Pragmatic Play: Known primarily for slots, but they also do live dealer games quite well.
- Playtech: One of the veterans of online gambling, not quite as important today.
- Vivo Gaming: Besides roulette, Vivo also shines with the Indian card games Andar-Bahar and Teen Patti.
- Authentic Gaming: This provider offers a roulette table from the Bad Homburg casino for the Internet.
- Ezugi: The roulette tables from Ezugi stand for a splendid and professional roulette atmosphere.
- NetEnt also used to have live casino tables in their portfolio. However, they have long since scrapped the live dealer department.
The croupiers in the live casino
The dealers or croupiers in online live casinos are not novices. The experience and knowledge is needed just like in a terrestrial casino. You don’t need to think as an online player that you are dealing with amateurs at the roulette table.
Unlike in a casino, about 80% of the croupiers at online providers are female and, by the way, they are also above average in looks. The clothing is a combination of classic and sexy/tantalizing, and there is often quite a bit of skin on display. However, the focus is clearly on the game, and this is done seriously.
Except for the few German-speaking roulette tables, the moderations are in English. Almost none of the croupiers have English as their mother tongue. Therefore, people speak clearly at the tables and hardly a syllable is swallowed. The language is relatively slow and mostly quite understandable.
Another topic of interest to our readers is mobile compatibility for mobile and tablet gaming. Until around 2018, things looked bleak in this regard if you wanted to play live casino roulette for real winnings.
In the meantime, however, the online casino games including roulette have arrived at the height of the times. Both the display of the video stream and the betting menu are perfectly optimized for the smartphone and run stably. You don’t usually install an app, but play directly in the browser.
Online Roulette Bonus
Casino bonuses are plentiful. Mostly, however, you can use the offers exclusively on slots. For roulette, the bonuses are usually not valid. Therefore, the advice of many experts is to simply play table games in the live casino without a bonus.
However, that would be premature, because these offers do exist. Live casino bonuses for roulette are not encountered particularly often, to be sure. But we know where to look.
