The rules of online roulette

Roulette is a game dictated by chance, and its widespread appeal derives from its simplicity. The aim of the game is straightforward – the wheel is set in motion and players have to accurately predict the pocket in which the roulette ball will land. There are a number of different bets to choose from before the wheel is spun, which include number, colour and odd/even numbers.


Players can place inside bets, which essentially are bets that predict the exact number of the pocket the ball will land in, or a range of pockets based on proximity. Players can also place outside bets which deal with larger groups of pockets based on position, colour, and whether the winning number is odd or even.  Winnings are then paid out depending on the result of the ball position.


These fundamental rules apply to all versions of land-based and online roulette.



European roulette

Among all the different variations of land-based and online roulette, European roulette is arguably the most authentic version, and the most popular. The reason for this is that it offers the player a greater chance to win, due to the design of the roulette wheel itself, which omits the 00 pocket, unlike its American counterpart, narrowing the range of pockets in which the ball can land in.


European roulette wheels range from 0 to 36 pockets, 1 to 36 alternating in colour (black and red), with the 0 pocket coloured in green.


Therefore, European roulette has 37 pockets in total.



American roulette

The American version of roulette, in contrast to the European variant, has a total of 38 divisions, numbered from 1 to 36, alternating between black and red. The wheel also has a 0 pocket, as well as a 00 pocket, both coloured green.

All pockets are identical in size and spacing, thus allowing for equal probability for the roulette ball to land in.


How to win at online roulette

Casino enthusiasts have played roulette for hundreds of years around the world, making the iconic wheel one of the oldest gambling games present in casinos. 

While the game is primarily based on chance, at the core of the game are strict probabilities. Over the years, players have tried and tested many strategies to gain an edge on the house, and while there are ways to play the game wisely to minimise losses, it’s important to remember that there are no guarantees.

Always remember to gamble responsibly – have fun trying your luck on the wheel, but only wager what you can afford lose. If you’re not an experienced player, bet low at first to get a feel for the game and build up confidence, before raising the stakes.


Online roulette strategies

So, how do you to predict which pocket the ball will land in? Of course, the outcome of where the ball will land is random, but that doesn't mean you can’t develop a roulette strategy to improve your chances.

When playing roulette, European or otherwise, the key is in your betting strategy. There are a variety of different approaches which have been tried and tested throughout the years, including popular methods such as the Martingale Strategy, the reverse Martingale strategy and the Fibonacci sequence, which we’ll detail below.

Whichever of these strategies you choose to adopt, remember that there are no guaranteed wins in roulette, as it’s all still based on chance.

Martingale Betting System

The concept is simple; you cover your losses and increase your bet after each consecutive loss. You do this until you win, at which point you go back to betting the original amount you started on.


The Martingale betting system is among the most popular when it comes to roulette strategies, as it’s undoubtedly one of the simplest. To play with this strategy, players essentially increase their bet after each loss, until they eventually land a win. Players with this strategy will win their losses back once they land that win, at which point, they go back to betting the original lower amount again to start over. 


The progression that you may use could be:

1 – 2 – 4 – 8 – 16 – 32 – 64 – 128 – 256 – 512 – 1024 – 2048 – 4096 – 8192

How to play Roulette at the Hippodrome Online Casino

Roulette’s genius lies in its simplicity, meaning it’s perfect for beginners and professionals alike.

Simply join a table of your choice and pick the value of the chip(s) you would like to use. Place bets by picking any number, colour or combinations that you would like to bet on.

The inside section of the board allows players to place bets on numbers that are in proximity of each other, up to a group of six numbers. You can place a bet on a single number, two adjoining numbers, three numbers connecting horizontally, or four numbers which are connected via one corner.

The final type if the double street bet, which means putting a bet down on six numbers.

The outside section of the table offers sets of bets. Red or black, odd or even or high or low, with each bet covering 18 numbers. There are also six other bets consisting of 12 numbers, also known as column or dozen bets.

Once you have placed your bets, the wheel will spin, and the ball will be thrown into the wheel. If the number/colour the ball lands on is included in your bet, you’re a winner.
