Live American Roulette Wheel, Layout and Display

Live American Roulette online is played using a traditional American roulette wheel layout which is coloured with black or red spaces, together with the 0 and 00 spaces which are coloured green. The American roulette wheel has a total of 38 spaces in which the little white ball can land. The American roulette wheel display is set so that you can see where each number is, together with what colour space they are. To place a bet on an American Roulette wheel, simply select the chip value you wish to wager with, then place it over the segment you wish to back. If you prefer the numbers are displayed in a grid you can choose to, as you control the 00 roulette wheel layout.


Betting on colours, numbers, odds and evens

You have several betting options when playing Live American Roulette using an American roulette table. This also means that various American Roulette strategies are possible. The first option and the one with the highest payout is the Straight Up bet. This is when you place your bet on a single number. This Straight Up bet has a 35:1 payout. Next up we have the Split Bet where you bet on two numbers. This type of bet has a payout of 17:1. Three numbers can also be bet on by making a Street Bet. A Street Bet pays you 11:1 if you pick the winning segment. You also have the option to bet on four different numbers. This type of bet is commonly known as a Corner Bet and it has a payout of 8:1.

You also have the option of making a First Five bet when playing American roulette online. This is when you bet on five different numbers. The payout for the First Five is 6:1. The opportunity to bet on an entire line is made possible thanks to the line bet which has a payout of 5:1. In a similar vein to the Line Bet we have the Dozen Bet, which is also known as the Column Bet. This is where you bet on a total of 12 numbers and you would have a payout rate of 2:1.

The bets with the lowest American roulette payouts are set at 1:1. These are any American roulette odds set at 50/50. This means that betting on which colour the ball will land on has a payout of 1:1. The same applies if you are betting on whether you think the winning number would be odd or even, or a low or a high card.


Maximum and Minimum bets

The minimum and maximum bets work a bit differently in Playtech's American Roulette online game. Rather than having a minimum and maximum bet per chip, Playtech have opted to have a minimum and maximum US roulette table limit. This means that a player's total sum of bets cannot go over the maximum table limit.



The American Roulette game's volatility is set at the medium level. The House Edge is a well-known phenomenon commonly associated with casinos. This is also known as the house’s advantage. The House Edge is the whole reason why the Straight Up bet payout is set at 35:1. Now that you know what all of the options are, you can play American Roulette online, real money style!


Features and How to Play Live American Roulette

Because this is a live dealer casino game, the action plays out in real-time. This adds a level of immersion to the experience. What’s more, because you can chat to your fellow players and the croupier, there’s a nice social element to Live American Roulette. Of course, as much as you want to have fun, you’re also playing to win. 

At this table, you’ll need to stake between 0.20 and 100 coins on one or more of the following:

·       Single numbers, two-number splits, three-number splits, quads (four numbers) or streets (five numbers)

·       Dozens or columns

·       Red/Black

·       Hi/Lo

·       Odd/Even

To help speed up the betting process, you can save up to five sequences. By saving betting formations, you can easily stay ahead of the 15-second countdown timer that signals the start of a new round.


Is American Roulette or European Roulette better? 

Which version you prefer really is up to you! The only difference between the American Roulette wheel and the European Roulette wheel is the 00 space. This space is non-existent on European Roulette wheels. This spices up the game a bit, by giving the house an extra edge.


What is the best bet in American Roulette?

The highest paying bet in the standard American Roulette wheel is the Straight Up bet where you would receive a payout of 35:1 but this is also the riskiest bet. The lowest paying bet would be an odd/even, high/low, black/red bet where the odds of winning are almost a 50% chance. If you want to receive higher payouts whilst risking a bit more during gameplay the best bet would be a Corner Bet. Of course, the best bet all depends on what type of player you are as there are no guarantees that you will win.


Is Live American Roulette rigged?

No. Live American Roulette is played with real-live dealers and American roulette wheels. Once the gameplay starts, you are shown a direct live stream of all that is happening in the studio.

Should I choose Classic American Roulette or Live American Roulette?

This completely depends on what you personally prefer. If you love being with people and the feeling of being in a casino then play Live American Roulette online as it is the perfect option for you. However, if you would rather focus on the game and do not care about the live aspect of the game, then Classic American Roulette may be the game for you.


Is there a strategy in Live American Roulette? 

There are plenty of strategies out there to playing Live American Roulette, but these tend to revolve around bankroll management rather than winning. This is because the outcome of each spin of the wheel is completely dictated by where the little white ball will land.
