Here at Lucky Nugget we provide the best Online Roulette for both newbie and experienced player alike. However, if you as a casino player have never played any of our Online Roulette Games before we think we should give you a bit of an insight into the game before you start playing. To start off, you will need to know that there are 2 different types of Online Roulette that we offer in our Online Casino Software – European and American Roulette! Online Roulette is one of the more relaxing online casino games that Lucky Nugget has to offer. However, it is still a much faster game than land based Roulette.
Online Roulette in Brief
It is often said that Online Roulette is the most dynamic game found at any Online Casino. It always has large amounts of players in the software that sing its praises and even though it is often seen as a complex game the realty of the situation is rather different.
Online Roulette basically consists of two physical game elements – The Roulette Wheel, and the Roulette Table. The Wheel is used to determine the outcome of the bet and the Table is used to place the bet.
The Roulette Wheel
The Roulette Wheel has a series of numbers running around its outer edge and has a ridge between each number. The numbers are marked in red or black which represents odd or even numbers.
The Roulette Table
The Roulette Table is used to place the bets! The numbers and colours on the table represent the numbers and colours that are on the Roulette Wheel.
When you as the player place your bet on a specific number or colour (or both) on a Roulette Table you have “chosen” that number/colour for your bet. The Roulette Wheel is then spun and a steel ball is dropped into the spinning wheel. Where the ball lands determines the number or colour that wins. If the number or colour of the bet corresponds with what is shown on the Roulette Wheel the player wins. If not, they lose.
More than One Variant of the Game Available
The two variants of Online Roulette games available at Lucky Nugget Online Casino are European and American Roulette. The difference between these two classic games can be found in the layout between European and American Roulette.
The original Roulette game that took the world by storm and arguably the best version of the game thanks to the better odds of winning that European Roulette offers. Most of our Online Casino players play this version of the game.

The odds in American Roulette weigh heavily on the side of the house. However, this form of the game is still very popular in many gaming circles thanks to the “thrill factor” offered by this game. The reason for this is that American Roulette contains an additional number on the table - the double zero. The double zero in American Roulette pays out the same as a corner 8 1 in European Roulette.

Please Note: Although there is very little difference between American Roulette and European Roulette games the slight change actually cuts the house advantage from 5.26% to 2.63% in European Roulette. This means that the chance of winning is a lot more than in American Roulette.
