One of the first casino games that Irish casino players come across when opening their online casino is Roulette and many of them go no further and with roulette being so easy to play and with a very good chance of winning it is no surprise. All online casinos feature roulette among the most popular casino games and although there are some minor variations the traditional European roulette remains the favourite with American roulette to be avoided if at all possible. Online casinos generally offer both European roulette and American roulette but American roulette has one extra number in “double zero” making 38 in total but the winning odds paid are the same as European roulette which only has 37 numbers so why anybody would want to play the American version is a mystery. The chances of winning when playing roulette at an online casino are better than most online casino slots but having said that, in order to win large amounts when playing roulette you will need to make large bets whereas casino slots are well known for paying large jackpots for relatively small stakes. Those who play roulette at online casinos will often play for their entertainment only making small amounts of cash last a long time by having regular wins along the way. Roulette is also a great introduction to the world of online casinos as it is so easy to play with no experience needed. There is no such thing as a good bet or a bad bet in roulette as the odds paid are simply a function of the number of numbers backed so whether you lay bets on a column of 12 numbers or whether your lay bets on 12 individual numbers the net result will be the same. The same applies to placing bets on two separate numbers or on a split of two numbers, the result is the same. Online casino roulette is really good fun.
