If you’re looking to explore casino games in NZ, why not swing open the saloon doors and start with an online roulette game!


A sleek and sophisticated game that’s straightforward to play? Sign me up. Learning how to play an online roulette game is as simple as having a basic understanding of the roulette wheel’s numbers and the roulette table’s betting layout. Applying an online roulette strategy will come a little later…


A quick squiz at the roulette wheel will reveal a number of black, red and green slots, which differ as follows:


  • 37 Slots: European and French Roulette have slots numbered from 0 – 36.
  • 38 Slots: American Roulette has slots numbered from 0 – 36, plus an additional 00.


The roulette table allows for several types of bets to be made, each offering different roulette odds. You can bet on a single number, red or black, odd or even numbers or even a range of numbers. When all bets are placed, the dealer spins the roulette wheel and drops the ball into it. When it stops spinning, the ball will settle in a slot, determining the winning number and colour. Bets corresponding to this will pay out accordingly. Pretty simple, really.


Pure gaming pleasure, that’s what prospecting players will unearth when searching for a roulette casino in NZ, and at Lucky Nugget, all that glitters is likely to be gold.

When playing roulette online, it's important to understand the basic rules to enjoy the game. Here are the key rules to keep in mind:


  • Objective: The objective of an online roulette game is to predict where the ball will land on the roulette wheel.
  • Betting: Place bets on a specific number, range of numbers, colour (red or black), or whether the number will be odd or even.
  • Wheel and Table: The roulette wheel contains numbered pockets, while the betting table displays the various betting options.
  • Dealer: In online roulette, the dealer is simulated by the software, and the game progresses based on the player's actions.
  • Outcome: Once bets are placed, the wheel is spun, and the ball is dropped. The outcome is determined by the pocket in which the ball comes to rest.

  • La Partage: If the ball lands on zero, half of the even-money bets are returned to the player.
  • En Prison: If the ball lands on zero, the player's even-money bets will be imprisoned for the next spin. If the bet, however, wins with the next spin, the original wager is returned, but if it loses, the bet is forfeited.
  • Inside Bet: A bet which is placed on specific numbers within the number grid on the roulette table.
  • Outside Bet: A bet which is placed on the outer sections of the table, such as black or red, even or odd, or low or high numbers.
