How old must you be to play online Roulette?
The UK law states that you must be over the age of 18 to gamble both online and within casino and betting establishments.
When opening an online casino account, you will be required to show some form of identification to prove that you are over the age of 18 and allowed to open an account.
This form of ID will then be checked by online casino regulators, who will either accept your ID and grant you access to the online casino lobby, or decline you if you don’t meet the age requirement.
Can I play live games of Roulette or are they all computer generated?
Many, if not all online casino sites offer live games of Roulette. These games are hosted by real-life dealers who, along with the game itself, are being live-streamed from a specialist studio, straight to your chosen device.
Some games offered by online casino providers include themed games of live Roulette as well as your standard game, which are enjoyed by numerous players around the world.
Is there only one type of Roulette variant I can play online?
No. In actual fact, most online casino providers offer both the American and European variants of Roulette on their virtual lobby floor – which is something most brick-and-mortar casino establishments don’t offer their players.
You’ll be able to play both variants of the game, and maybe find out which variant you prefer.
Will you side with the Americans and prefer a game that involves both a single (0) and double (00) zero, or will you prefer the European way, invented by brothers Louis and Francois Blanc, with just a single zero (0) in play?
Can I only play Roulette online with a laptop/computer?
Thanks to modern technology, it’s now possible to grab a spin of the iconic wheel via a laptop, computer, tablet, or compatible mobile device, as well as your smartphone.
When playing with a tablet, mobile-compatible device, or smartphone, you have the option to either grab a game via a web browser or through the online casino provider’s app.
From there you can choose which game you’d like to play from the Roulette sections – live or computer-generated – and get spinning!
