European Roulette

Variety of Betting OptionsSpin Up Some Big Winnings!

The objective of playing European Roulette online is to bet on potential outcomes of where the ball will land on the online roulette wheel. The game offers multiple betting options.

European Roulette uses a traditional European roulette wheel (numbers 1-36 + Zero position) and standard betting table.

How to Play:

  • Select a chip by clicking on it. Then click on the position of the Betting Table you wish to bet on.  Each click will add another chip of the same value to the bet. You can place multiple chips of different values anywhere on the Betting Table, providing you have enough credit and do not exceed the betting limit. Right-clicking on a chip will remove it from the Betting Table. Selecting Clear All Bets will remove all chips from the Betting Table.
  • When you are happy with your selections, click on Spin to start the game.
  • The Wheel will start spinning. On the top right of the screen a display shows a close up view of the wheel spinning. When the ball has come to rest the game will be concluded. Any winning bets will be paid at the relevant payout amount.
  • When the game  has ended you will have the following options:
    • Rebet = place the same bets as the previous round.
    • Double = double the previous round bets.
  • Click Spin to play again.

Please note:

Understanding Video Slot Rules

Each slot game has its own unique set of rules because they often work in slightly different ways. It’s a good idea to click the info tab in any slot game to view the paytable and game notes. This will show you what each symbol is worth and how you go about landing a win on the reels. Some games might have expanding reels, wilds or different payline mechanics which means they change as you play them. You’ll also find some useful information on the bonus features of that specific game and how to trigger them.
