Even if the principle of internet roulette is basically the same, there are different variants that should provide variety in the casino. There can be differences, for example, in the payout ratios, the style of play, and the amount and type of possible bets.
Each casino customer has their own roulette favorites, the following roulette variants being the classics:
European Roulette is the most frequently played Internet Roulette variant in European, Asian, and African casinos. The game is played with a kettle, with the numbers 1 to 36 and a zero. European roulette, for example, has better chances of winning than American roulette, because with zero the house edge is only 2.7 percent.
French roulette is identical to European roulette in many ways. First of all, the differences between the variants are visual. While with European roulette on the roulette table you can find English names or those of the national language, the names of the French version are in French. For example, the simple chances are called “Rouge / Noir”, “Pair / Impair” and “Manque / Passe” and the croupier calls instead of “Nothing works!” For the French game variant “Rien ne va plus!”.
La Partage and En Prison
The La Partage rule is not exclusive to French roulette but is often associated with this variant. This rule is used in some casinos for the simple chances and offers the player advantages when the zero comes. Instead of losing the entire stake, it is shared at La Partage when the player shouts “partagez la masse, s’il vous plaît!”. Half goes to the bank and the other half is paid to the gambler. This reduces the house edge to 1.35 percent and the payout ratios increase from 97.3 percent to 98.65 percent. A variant of La Partage is the en prison rule. Half the profit in the case of zero is not paid out to the player, but the entire bet is blocked and half the profit is “reinvested”. The chips remain on the field. If the gambler is correct on the next spin, he gets his bet back. Otherwise, the entire stake goes to the casino.
As the name suggests, this roulette variant is one that is particularly popular in America but is also popular in Canada or South America. In Europe, on the other hand, this variant plays a minor role. This could be due to the fact that in addition to the zero, the double zero is also used. The house edge here is 5.6 percent. The payout ratios decrease accordingly. Some casinos offer American roulette, with the double zero being eliminated in most cases.
Other roulette variants
There are other exciting online roulette games, including mini roulette. Here you play with the numbers 1-12 and a zero. Here the house edge is significantly higher than with classic roulette and is 7.7 percent.
Multi wheel roulette is another variant. This is offered in online casinos. In online roulette, players sit in front of several digital kettles, the number of which they can usually determine themselves. This roulette variant makes it possible to make bigger profits faster.
The special variant of card roulette is a mixture of roulette and poker. Instead of the numbers 0-36, the kettles consist of 52 cards and two jokers with which the winnings can be multiplied.
