Roulette is one of the most popular casino games, and its popularity has only grown through online roulette.
Originally a staple of brick-and-mortar casinos, offering players the chance to play casino roulette online has become somewhat of a necessity for any reputable online casino, and 666 Casino is no exception.
In light of this, we have a great offering of roulette games, covering all the popular variations, including live roulette!
On this page, we will explain why 666 Casino is the best place to play roulette online.
Originally, online roulette was just a computerised version of its land-based counterpart – no dealer, just a Random Number Generator (RNG) producing a random outcome that is then shown on-screen. However, it has since grown to become more than that.
Here at 666 Casino, we offer various roulette games. In this section, we’ll take you through some of the different types available.
Live roulette brings together the atmosphere and social aspect of in-person roulette with the convenience of online roulette. A real dealer spins the wheel and drops the ball, which is live-streamed straight to your device.
Players place their bets through the interface on their screen, and the dealer calls an end to the betting period before spinning the wheel, as normal. In addition, players can interact with the dealer, and other players, via a chat function.
French roulette is one of the main variations of roulette, the key difference being the inclusion of the “En Prison” and “La Partage” rules. These rules refer to 2 possible outcomes if the ball lands in the 0 (zero) pocket on an even money outside bet.
The En Prison rule dictates that if a player places an even money bet and the ball lands in the zero pocket, then the player’s bet isn’t yet lost. Instead, it is held (in prison), and the dealer spins the wheel again. This time if the player’s bet wins, the bet returns to the player (without any winnings).
The La Partage rule holds that if the ball lands in a zero pocket, players that place an even money bet receive back half of their wager amount.
The inclusion of these rules results in French roulette having a lower house edge than other roulette variants without these rules. The house edge becomes 1.35% with the La Partage rule in place and 1.37% with the En Prison rule.
Double Ball Roulette
Double Ball Roulette is exactly as it sounds, roulette with two balls instead of one.
The table layout and basic principles are the same as standard roulette, but there is an additional wager option of betting where each ball will land. Double Ball Roulette is a popular twist on the casino classic by making a simple yet substantial change.
Again, this one is fairly self-explanatory: 20p Roulette is an online roulette game with a minimum stake of £0.20.
In this roulette game, you place bets by selecting the number of chips you wish to put down. Each chip is worth £0.20, and once you get to £1, the bet amount increases in £1 increments.
Aside from this, 20p Roulette plays out the same as any other online roulette game: you place your bet on where you think the ball will land, the wheel spins, the ball is dropped, and you wait for the outcome.
20p Roulette may appeal to those that prefer to stake smaller amounts per round.
New Roulette Games
We’re always keeping our eyes open for the latest casino games releases, including roulette. Here at 666 Casino, we want to ensure we’re bringing our players the best, which entails stocking the newest releases.
Whether it’s a new live dealer release or a new theme against a Random Number Generator (RNG), we make sure to add it to our collection.
Roulette tends to be popular as it’s one of the simpler casino games. In this sense, it can appeal to all players, from beginners to the more experienced.
First, you decide the bet you wish to place. There are “outside” bets that offer lower payouts but are more likely to land; these include bets such as red, black, odd, even, high, low, columns and dozens. Then, there are the “inside” bets that offer higher payouts but are less likely to land as you are betting on fewer numbers.
After the betting period is over, the dealer will declare “no more bets”. They will then spin the roulette wheel and drop the ball in. The outcome is then determined based on where the ball lands; if the winning pocket lines up with your bet, you win!
If it appeals to you, then give one of the many roulette games we have a try for the chance to win real money.
The most complex part of roulette is the setup of the roulette table. Once you understand this, then there isn’t much more to learn.
At one end of the table, you have a grid of numbers. This area is called the “layout”; it contains all the numbers that appear on the wheel and, by extension, all the bets you can place in roulette.
Surrounding the grid of numbers are boxes indicating the outside bets: red/black, odd/even, high/low etc. – named for being on the outside of the number grid.
On the other end of the table, you have the wheel. It has a ball track leading into it where the ball is released onto the wheel – or balls if playing double ball roulette. The wheel contains a number of pockets that each correspond to a number in the layout, and the pockets are either red or black.
The zero pocket is the exception and is where the difference between roulette variations is evident. The zero pocket is green, and there can be up to two on the wheel. In European roulette and French roulette, there is a single green zero pocket on the wheel as well as the numbers 1-36, totalling 37 pockets on the wheel.
Whereas in American roulette, there are two zero pockets, a zero (0) and a double zero (00). Hence, American roulette is sometimes referred to as double zero roulette. It also means that American roulette has 38 numbers on the wheel.
Roulette is a game of chance, and there are no strategies that can affect the outcome or improve your chances of winning.
That being said, there are strategies of sorts used by roulette players: betting strategies.
Betting strategies – also called bet management strategies – are used in an effort to try and mitigate losses by placing bets according to a system. In this section, we will discuss a few of the most popular roulette betting strategies.
The Martingale strategy is perhaps the most popular and can be fairly straightforward. The Martingale strategy can be used when placing even money outside bets (e.g. red/black, odd/even and high/low). The strategy holds that you double your bet amount with each loss and return to the original bet amount upon a win.
The idea is that by doubling the bet amount on each loss, you can recuperate the previous losses if you land a win. For example, if you bet £4 and lose, the next bet you place should be £8. If you then lose this bet, you will be down £12, and you should bet £16 on the next round. If you then win the £16 bet, you will receive the wager back as well as your winnings, resulting in a £4 profit from the 3 rounds.
While this strategy works in theory, obstacles such as the table’s maximum betting limit and your bankroll soon arise. The former can prevent the strategy from working by not allowing you to double your bet further, potentially resulting in losses stacking up and requiring consecutive wins to make it back.
The roulette wheel is sometimes called the “Devil’s Wheel” because all the numbers on it add up to 666 – the number of the beast. Hence, the 666 strategy involves covering as many numbers on the wheel as you can per round.
In fact, it covers all but 4 numbers. You have to place multiple bets at the same time to do this, with the total bet for the round being £66 (or a multiple of this).
The first bet you place is £36 on red, covering just under half the numbers. Next, you place £4 split bets on the layout between numbers of other colours; these split bets are placed on 0/2, 8/11, 10/13, 17/20, 26/29 and 28/31.
Finally, you place £2 straight-up bets on 3 of the remaining 7 numbers, leaving only 4 numbers unaccounted for.
Using the 666 strategy covers the wheel well, with only 4 opportunities to lose. However, this coverage is also a downside. Placing this many bets per round can be costly, meaning any losses can have a bigger impact. As a result, even just a couple of losing spins could result in a net loss for the session.
This strategy is named after the famous Fibonacci sequence, in which the next number in the series is the sum of the two numbers before it (e.g. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…).
This strategy, like the Martingale, requires you to place even money outside bets. You place your stakes in line with the sequence; obviously, you can’t bet £0, so you can start at £1. You increase your bet, moving along the sequence with each consecutive loss. If you land a win, you move 2 steps back in the sequence – or back to the beginning if you’re not that far through.
Since the stake amounts start low, potential losses may not be as dramatic as in other methods, such as the Martingale. However, the further along this sequence you get, the quicker the stake amounts increase, and losses can stack up.

Whilst we’ve tried to cover everything there is to know about online roulette on this page, we appreciate that you may still have some additional questions. To try & help answer them, we’ve included some FAQs below:
Roulette is a game of chance. The outcome is unpredictable; there’s no telling where the ball will land in in-person or in live dealer roulette, and online roulette games use an RNG to produce a random outcome using a complex algorithm.
Although many people swear by betting on 7, this has more to do with the longstanding superstitious association of the number and luck. In reality, no number wins more than others in roulette. All numbers have an equal chance of landing on each spin.
Any supposed “hot numbers” are by pure coincidence or taken from a small sample size, the outcome of roulette is random, and all numbers have a 1 in 37 (single zero) or 1 in 38 (double zero) chance of landing.
Yes, roulette is a game of chance, but people do still win. Your chances of winning depend on the variation of roulette you’re playing and the bets you choose to place.
The minimum bet varies with each roulette game. Brick-and-mortar casinos have different tables with different minimum bets. Similarly, online casinos have different roulette games with different minimum bets, but some can go as low as £0.10.
Ultimately, you will have to check the minimum bet of the roulette game you want to play.
The maximum bet also varies with each roulette game. Whether in-person or online, there are many options available. As such, you should check the maximum bet of different roulette games to find one with a suitable maximum bet.
Yes, you can bet on the zero (0) in roulette as a straight-up bet, as part of a split (2-number) bet, and even part of a basket (5-number) bet in roulette variations with a double zero (00) pocket, such as American roulette.
Yes, you can bet on every number in roulette. However, it doesn’t really make any sense to do so. The house edge is in place so that the casino has an advantage over the player. If you were to bet on every number in roulette, you would find that the possible payouts don’t cover the bet amount, so it will almost always result in a loss.
The clearest example of this is the straight-up bet (single-number bet). A straight-up bet offers a payout of 35:1, except there are 37 numbers (in European roulette). So, if you place a £1 straight-up bet on every single number, only one will win, returning £35. Except, you placed a £37 bet to cover all the numbers, leaving you £2 in the red.
