new frontier in roulette gambling has arrived, and it's called online
roulette. It's likely that if you showed up on this page from a search
engine, what you're looking for is some online roulette, not just a discussion
of it. Free roulette can be found here, and real money roulette can be
But on this page, we're going to talk about what roulette has become
since it's moved online, what advantages this move presents the player
with, and if there is any difference between online roulette, and the
game we know so well from the casino floor.
The move to the online world has been a relatively slow one. Very rudimentary
roulette games existed online early on. One stood out as the perfect example
of the early models. It was hosted on Aaron's
roulette site, a long running online roulette site, and consisted
mainly of a grid of text numbers with radio buttons beside each one, and
code and gave you a winning number.
Modern online games rely on exactly the same principle, but dress the
routine up with fancy graphics, and some handy features. Our own online
roulette game has just those fancy graphics, plus a real bankroll that
is cookied to stay with you visit after visit, and a built in chat window
to say hi to other players. Pretty improved over years gone past, but
what value does it provide, other than a relaxing way to spend the evening?
First and foremost, if the game is any the game is free. This means you
can play out any strategies or systems that you have always wanted to,
but could never afford to. It also means you can become very comfortable
with the game as a novice, before diving into a game for real money. Does
Vegas give you this opportunity? Ummm, NO!
The most commonly asked question about online roulette is, how fair is
it compared to a land-based game? The answer is fairly straightforward,
thanks to the simplicity behind the mathematics of roulette. Online games
are programmed to the same specifications as a real game, and as long
as the random number generator truly is random, and the casino pays back
appropriately (35 to 1 etc.), the game is exactly the same as it is in
There are other things to consider of course, like the fact that your
computer can't print money, so if you win you'll have to wait for a check
in the mail. Playing roulette online is usually a solitary experience,
so you don't have to wait for other players to place their bets. The spins
can be quickly too, which can be good or bad, depending on if you're winning
or losing! Of course, you can take as long as you wish between bets, you
can even take the time to reference a book or website between spins!
