Classic Live Roulette types in UK Casinos

All Live Casinos in the UK have a number of Live Roulette tables because it is the most popular casino game not only in the UK but worldwide. But not every caino has the same roulette games, This depends on their software provider as well as how many tables they want to hosto on their site.

However, there are some classic live roulette types that someone can find in every online casino.

Live European Roulette is the most popular, followed by Live French Roulette and then Live American Roulette.

Lets have  a look at these 3 classic live roulette types.

The 3 Classic types of Live Roulette

As we have already mentioned the roulette world has three main types of roulette that casino players can find online or in land based casinos around the world. The same roulette types can be found with live dealers as well.

Live European Roulette

European Live Roulette is the most popular classic type of live roulette in UK Casinos. You can find European Roulette at every UK Live Casino without exception as it is considered the standard type of Roulette. Roulette Rules and betting options are quite straightforward.

European Roulette has 37 numbers and it varies from other types of Roulette like the American Roulette as it has only one Zero. What this means for the casino player is that the house edge is 2.70% for Live European Roulette vs 5.26% for Live American Roulette.

So better roulette odds is one of the main reasons most casino players prefer European Roulette to other types.

Live French Roulette

French Live Roulette is actually the same classic type of Roulette as European Live Roulette with a different table layout and some other small differences like different names on the betting types. and the added feature of Racetrack (called bets) and La Partage/ en prison rules. However, there are some UK Live Casinos that will offer Live French Roulette and will keep the same layout as the European Live Roulette but will just add the Racetrack (Called Bets) or/and the La partage/ en prison rules.

What are the La partage / en prison rules at French Roulette

As we explained above this is something that we find only in some UK Live Casinos that offer Live French Roulette. These rules basically are applicable to bets placed on red/black or even/odd. If the roulette ball lands on 0 then these rules come into effect.

  • La partage – you can get half of your stake back.
  • En prison – your bet goes on hold for one more spin until the next spin, so it is like you’ have another chance to win

What is the Racetrack in Live Roulette

The Racetrack in French Roulette is just a simple way to cover various sections of the roulette wheel.

  • Voisins du Zero (neighbors of zero) – covers 17 numbers surrounding (and including) the green 0
  • Tiers du Cylindre (thirds of the wheel) – covers 12 numbers roughly opposite the “Voisins du Zero”.
  • Orphelins (orphans) – covers the remaining 8 numbers not covered by the two call bets above.
  • Neighbors – covers 5 neighboring numbers on the roulette wheel.

 Many roulette players choose to use the racetrack to place their bets because its the fast way to place multiple bets around a specific number or a specific area of the wheel. If you want lets say to place bets on 0 and around 0 then you can just bet on Voisins du Zero which covers 17 numbers.

Live American Roulette

Live American Roulette is exactly the same as Live European Roulette with the only difference that there are two zeros. This extra “double zero” increases the payout from a single number bet to 37/1 but it also increases the house edge to 5.27% vs. 2.7% in the European Roulette. Finally, Live American Roulette gives you the chance to make a “street” bet by wagering chips on five numbers in a row: double-zero, zero, one, two and three.
