Traditionally there has always been three types of roulette played in land casinos, all of which appear online: American, European and French Roulette are played across the globe in bricks and mortar casinos, and have very successfully made the transition to the web. They’re played in both virtual form - with a random number generator determining where the ball lands – as well as via live casinos using streaming software to broadcast from purpose–built casino studios mainly in Eastern Europe, but also in the Philippines and other far-flung destinations.

You won’t generally see American roulette broadcast live, but you’ll find lots of European games and the occasional French game, which is worth seeking out as it offers the best odds.

The advent of online gaming, however, has brought us some much more exotic versions of the game, all broadly categorised under the name of Bonus Roulette: These games add an extra layer of excitement to the traditional roulette game in a way that a land casino roulette table cannot replicate. They work by offering you the chance to bet an ante, which corresponds to an enlarged slot on the roulette wheel. If the ball lands in this slot when you’ve bet the ante, then you get to take part in another game which has the potential to yield much larger winnings than a standard game of roulette.

These additional games come in all sorts of wild and wacky formats, but they make the game far more interesting, and enable the possibility of winning very large – in some cases-life changing – sums of cash.
