Spin the wheel American-style at Jackpot City Casino.

Roulette is an attractive, social casino game that allows you to have fun with many players at the same time gathered at the same table. Luckily, you can also play online roulette nz variations here in JackpotCity Casino, like mobile roulette and Live Lightning Roulette

Roulette comes from a French word that means ‘little wheel’. The game of roulette centres around a spinning wheel with numbers painted on it. The dealer, called the croupier, tosses a ball onto the wheel, and players bet where it will land when the wheel finally stops spinning. You don’t have to restrict yourself to just one number, however; there are a variety of different bets you can make. Best of all, roulette, unlike blackjack or baccarat, roulette doesn’t require much strategy, meaning you can enjoy the glamour of this classic casino game without worrying about the cards in your hand.

Kinds of bets in American Roulette.

There’s so much more to roulette bets than just betting everything on a single number. Let’s go over the possibilities you can bet and win in roulette.

  1. Whole house, or total number: This consists in betting on one of the 36 available numbers, plus the 0 and the double zero. The payout of this bet corresponds to 35 times the position.
  2. Half. This consists of covering two numbers that are adjacent to each other on the payout or table,either vertically or horizontally. To make this bet valid, the casino chip must be placed on the line separating both numbers. This bet pays 17 times its position or chance.
  3. Cross row or street. You play the three consecutive numbers that make up a row, placing the bet in the middle of the longitudinal line that separates the row from the lateral spaces. With this option, you receive payment of 11 times your position.
  4. Table. The bet is placed on the four consecutive numbers that form a square—identifying the chance at the point of intersection of the lines that separate your four numbers. The payout when winning this possibility corresponds to 8 times the bet.
  5. Line. This game consists of betting on two rows of 3 horizontal numbers together. The chip is placed on the line that separates the end of the line next to the single numbers. It pays 5 times the bet.
  6. Special line. Select five contiguous numbers, and there is only one possibility to bet: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. The casino chip must be placed in the corner that joins the 0, 1 and the first dozen. If you guess right, you get paid six times the position.
  7. The dozen. It covers 12 numbers. The first dozen number 1 to 12, the second is from 13 to 24, and the third dozen are from 25 to 36. So the payment for the dozen is twice the stake.

What makes American roulette special?

The difference between European and American roulette is that American roulette has an extra pocket, or 0, but the payouts are the same. This modification was made by the Blanc brothers in 1842. The reason for adding this zero is to protect the casino from potential fraudsters. What it means in practice, however, is that there is a 1 in 38 chance of the ball landing in any given slot, rather than 1 in 37 like its European counterpart.  
Even with these odds, however, American roulette is a great choice for anyone wishing to spin the wheel. You can take your chances with New Zealand’s favourite table game via desktop, tablet, or smartphone, since Jackpot City casino is available both directly via your browser or in as a standalone iOS and Android app.
