What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the words “casino games”? if you’re like most of us, the answer is probably the Roulette wheel. This game has been the last word in gambling sophistication for hundreds of years.
Often known as “The Game Of Kings” Roulette, which means Little Wheel in French, has been just as popular online. The versions that we offer at Lucky Nugget are the best you will find in Bermuda and the rest of the world, and are all supplied by Microgaming.
That means you can play them on any device with no compromise in quality. The special features, graphics and sound effects in all our Little Wheel games make them even more engaging and rewarding. If you’re ready to experience all of that, dive in and learn the basics here!
The aim in every game of the Little Wheel is the same. You need to predict where a ball, dropped onto a spinning wheel, will be when the wheel comes to rest. This wheel always has pockets that are alternately coloured in red and black and numbered from 1 to 36, as well as a green one numbered 0.
American games have an extra green pocket numbered 00, which increases the house edge considerably. For this reason, it is usually recommended that beginners try French or European Roulette first.
To place your wagers, you need to put the right amount of chips on the appropriate area of the Roulette table. In the games at Lucky Nugget, this is perfectly simulated using top-quality graphics and animations.
The betting table has an outer and inner track, which has led to possible wagers being known as Outside or Inside Bets depending on where they are found. Outside Bets are considerably easier to win, with much better odds, but with lower payouts too. They’re a great place to start and include Odd/Even, Red/Black and High/Low wagers.
Odd/Even and Red/Black Bets involve predicting whether the ball will land in an odd- or even-numbered pocket, or a red or black one, respectively. With High/Low Bets you need to say whether the ball will fall into a pocket numbered from 19 to 36 or from 1 to 18.
French, American and European Roulette all feature slightly different bets and rules; the La Partage Rule makes French games especially suited to beginners. This pays back half your wager if you lose an even-money bet. You will love exploring them all though, and finding which one is your personal favourite!
The intriguing thing about Roulette is that as you keep playing, your understanding of the odds will deepen. In turn, your betting will become more strategic and skilled, and you’ll start to win more money. This really is a game where you reap the rewards of the effort you put in.
As you spend more time playing you’ll come across many betting strategies including the Martingale and D’Alembert methods. These both involve betting more when you are losing and less when you are winning, to eventually recoup your losses when you get a win. Try out what you learn with small amounts of money, and bet with more when you feel more confident.
The time it takes to develop as a Roulette player is as satisfying as winning a big return when you’re playing at Lucky Nugget Bermuda. Register as a member and claim your Welcome Bonus now, then get betting and winning.
