Roulette is a popular casino game that many do not realize has a lot of different variations that greatly affect your odds of winning. Thanks to the legalization of online gambling in New Jersey, the different types of roulette can be played from the comfort of your own home at every online casino in the state.
The most common type of roulette at New Jersey online casinos is European Roulette, where the wheel has one zero. There is also double zero roulette, which gives the house a much bigger edge because you have a higher chance of landing on zero and losing your entire wager. Some casinos also have three wheel roulette where the player bets on three separate spins and some casinos will allow players to make side bets.
Here we will look at the different types of online roulette games offered at New Jersey casinos, how to play them, and where to play.
How to Play Roulette Online
The most common type of roulette you will encounter is European Roulette. The wheel includes one zero. Casinos offer games with or without the “la partage” or “half back” rule, where the player only loses half their wager if they hit zero. In games without la partage, you lose your entire bet if you hit zero, so la partage games like French Roulette are definitely the way to go. The odds are much better in single zero roulette than double zero roulette, also called American Roulette, for obvious reasons.
Some New Jersey casinos offer unique versions of online roulette. Betfair offers Roulette Royale, which has a single zero and the la partage rule but also allows players to make additional side bets. Betfair also has Three Wheel Roulette, where you can make a wager on three independent spins, and also allows for various side bets.
There are several other alternative versions of roulette, some of which include bonus slots and slots that result in free spins.
