Roulette is one of the most popular games in the world, and at Conquer Casino live dealer roulette is played by absolutely loads of different people. It’s no surprise to hear that live online roulette is popular though, as this form of the game is the most realistic around, plus it can lead to some spectacularly large prizes! So, if you’re looking to play live roulette NZ has a number of places to choose from, but Conquer Casino is definitely the best of them!
How to Play Live Roulette
Live roulette is played in exactly the same way as standard online roulette, which means that most online roulette NZ fans should easily be able to make the jump across to the real time version. If you’re not familiar with the rules though, we’ll go over them briefly below…
Roulette is a game based entirely on luck, meaning that both new and experienced players have the same chances of winning. The first thing you’ll need to do is pick a bet, and there are loads of them on the roulette table layout for you to choose from. Some of the most popular bets when playing real money online roulette are:
- Single number. This one is easy to explain, as you simply bet on a single number and hope that it spins into view. It pays odds of 35:1.
- Split. This is when you place a bet on two numbers that are next to each other on the roulette table. This bet pays odds of 17:1.
- Street. This is when you bet on an entire row of three numbers. You will find that this bet has pays odds of 11:1.
- Corner. When you make a corner bet, you’re betting on a square group of numbers. This bet will pay odds of 8:1.
- Red or black. As the name suggests, you’ll simply bet on whether the ball will land on a red or a black number. This pays odds of 2:1.
- Odd or even. This bet sees you attempting to guess whether the ball will land on an odd or even number. This bet also pays odds of 2:1.
Once you have gotten comfortable with the simpler bets listed above, you can then move onto the more complex types of roulette bets. There is no right or wrong bet when you are playing live roulette online, so why not experiment with all the different bets available to you?
Once you have selected your bets (you can place as many as you like per spin), you will see the roulette wheel start to spin around. It’s then simply a case of waiting for the ball to stop and seeing which number it selects. You will then win a prize equivalent to the odds for your specific selection. For example, if you placed $10 on a single number, you’d win a prize worth $350!
About Live Dealers
The live dealer is the key to this form of the game. You’ll find a real dealer sat in front of you when you play, beamed to your screen via a webcam, therefore the experience is as close as possible to the one you’ll find in a brick and mortar casino. These dealers will do everything they would do in real online casinos, so they’ll essentially call time on bets and spin the wheel. They won’t be involved in paying you though, as the software we use will take care of that!
Dealers aren’t just there for practical purposes though – they’re also there to enhance your experience when you play live dealer casino games, including roulette and live blackjack. The best live roulette online sites – including Conquer Casino, of course – will encourage their dealers to interact with the players, chatting to them about everything from day-to-day life, through to how they’re doing on the tables. This makes live dealer roulette the most sociable way to play roulette online!
Live Roulette Variations
There are many different variations of live dealer roulette, however they can be broken down into three main categories: European roulette, French roulette and American roulette. European and French roulette contain 36 numbers (0-35), while American roulette has 37 numbers (1-35 plus 0 and 00). French roulette and European roulette differ thanks to the la partage rule, which gives you half your stake back if the ball lands on 0.
It is worth mentioning here that there’s no opportunity to play free roulette games at the live casino NZ, as space is reserved for those playing for real money. You can practice for free by playing one of the standard online roulette games though, as the rules are exactly the same. You won’t win money when using free spins, however you will learn about the rules of the game, which should help when you play roulette for real cash.
It is worth mentioning that all versions of live dealer roulette at Conquer Casino are equally as fair – after all, there’s no way of cheating if you can see everything the dealer is doing. For your peace of mind though, we’re constantly monitored by the people over at the UK Gambling Commission, who ensure that we always offer fair and honest games to our players.
History of Roulette
The game of roulette has been around since the 18th century, and it came from France. The earliest known reference to roulette being played comes from 1796 in Paris. Initially all roulette wheels had both 0 and 00, however the single zero variation was introduced in 1843, and quickly became a massive hit with fans of roulette games. During the 1800s roulette really became popular, spreading quickly throughout Europe and the USA.
Nowadays roulette is found in casinos throughout the world and is a staple of any good land-based casino. It was also one of the first casino games to make the jump over to the world of online casino games, thanks to its simplicity. Fast forward to the advent of live casino games, and roulette would once again be the trailblazer, alongside blackjack, cementing its place as one of the world’s most popular casino games.
Each variation of roulette has its own RTP, so we’ll just concentrate on the three main forms – European, American and French. French roulette has the best chances of you winning cash, as it has an RTP of 98.65%. European roulette then has an RTP of 97.3%, thanks to the fact there’s no la partage rule. American roulette offers an RTP of 94.74%, meaning that it offers the least chance of you making money. If you want to find out the house edge, just subtract the RTP from 100%.
You should remember that all RTPs are based solely on 50/50 bets (red/black and odd/even) – deviating to other bets will cause the RTP to fall. There is no random number generator to worry about in live roulette though, as everything is done live, so expect your fortunes to swing as you play.
