Online Roulette

Free casino games offer insight into the history and strategy of Roulette

The game of online roulette is a fairly new addition to our online gaming experience, but has its roots deep in our history and culture. Some say it was invented by Pascal back in the 16th century as part of his experiments to devise a machine of perpetual motion and when he realised its potential as a fun game it developed into the grand wooden wheels now seen all over the world. Others say that it was invented by an unknown French man who sold his soul to the devil in return for knowledge of the best game in the world. Whilst it sounds unbelievable, if you add together all the numbers present on the roulette wheel you come to a total of 666, also known as the number of the beast.

Wherever it came from, roulette has enjoyed high acclaim all over the world in casinos and clubs, finally developing into the high tech online gambling experience we see today. Whilst there is no magic formula for winning roulette, you can be made very rich should the luck be coming your way. Be warned though, many a man (and woman) has been broken by the game and at the end of the day it is purely a game of chance with little or no skill involved.

Playing roulette online is fine as long as you stick with the larger, reputable online casinos, but keep your wits about you, as it is one of the online games most prone to hackers and con artists. If the site is offering massive bonuses, then steer clear, or if you hear about the site by way of a spam email then don`t bother with it.

The game is completely random and without this randomness there is no point in playing. Experienced players will often claim to have a `system` or winning formula, but in truth there is no way to predict which numbers will come up next. In the online scenario, the winning numbers are not determined by the drop of a real ball, but instead are generated by what is known as a RNG or Random Number Generator. If you prefer your games a little more natural then there are sites, which are linked into real casinos and allow you to play live on a real roulette wheel.

If you have never played before and want to learn the basics there are lots of sites, which will offer you a free game as a trial. Some require that you make a deposit or enter a credit card first, but you can always withdraw this money afterwards if you think the game is not for you. If you are ready to sign up to a site then you will do well to search for a site offering large deposit bonuses s. Some will double or even triple your first deposit to kick off your games. As far as sites go, much of the choice will be down to personal preference. Online gambling and casing sites often have active communities, so search around until you find somewhere that suits you. Wherever you play, online or in a real city casino in Manchester or in a London bingo hall you can bet you will have a great time.
