What is online roulette?
Roulette is a casino game that includes a table and a spinning wheel with 37 or 38 sectors on it. Each sector is marked with a number and the colour – black or red. Players can bet on colour or number. Roulette is one of the most elegant casino games. Roulette’s simple but highly attractive gameplay gained its popularity among gambling houses which later on transformed into land-based casinos as we know them today. Nowadays online versions of roulette are not less well-liked than its traditional ones. Free roulette games copy the playing process of the land-based roulettes where players sit at a table and wait for crupie to drop the ball.

The first primitive form of roulette had already been known in France in the 18th century. One century later, in Monaco, roulette gained an incredible popularity. At the same time, once it appeared in New Orlean, roulette was rapidly getting around in the USA where the game was a little modified.

Types of online roulette
BGaming offers three popular types of online roulette to players that are available for free: European, French and American. You can play free roulette online for fun on the website or choose any casino to play for real money.
One of the first and still popular all over the world, French roulette is considered the ancestor of European and American roulette. The rules of French roulette were formed a couple of centuries ago and during this time didn’t change a lot. The goal of the game is to guess the number from 0 to 36 that will appear on the roulette wheel. The only change that happened to French roulette in the middle of the 19th century was the loss of one of the two sectors that gave an advantage to the casino.
American Roulette is a game of a wheel and 38 slots where a ball can land. The wheel has an additional slot with the number 00. That’s why this game is often called a “double zero” roulette. The slots from 1 to 36 are colored either black or red and the slots numbered 0 and 00 are colored green. A player can make any bets with regard to number, color, odd or even consequence.
European Roulette is a fast and dynamic game! Moreover, it is the most popular version of the game in the world! Unlike its American relative, European roulette has only one green slot marked 0. Players can bet both before the ball is dropped and while it is spinning along the groove of the wheel.
