The number of online casinos in India has increased by ten folds in the last year or so. The reason for that is fairly simple, India is home to more than a billion people a good portion of which have decent disposable income and access to good internet connection. It is even more impressive when you consider the amount of localisation that casinos have undertaken in order to appeal to the Indian audience. This includes the ability for players to deposit and withdraw in their local currency using local payment methods such as UPI and Netbanking.
The online casinos have also paid close attention to the number and also the type of casino games that are available to their players. Among the very popular games that you can play in an online casino is online roulette. In this article, we will shed light on this game in particular giving you the ins and outs of online roulette and how you should play it.
What is Traditional Roulette?
A game of roulette found in most land based casinos involves a large wheel with numbers on it. These numbers also have colours that might be black or red. The player is required to select a number, group of numbers or even a colour to place a bet on. After the bet is placed, a small metal ball is spun around the wheel. The ball eventually makes its way into the number and if that is spot you had selected, then you win.
What is different about Online Roulette?
Online roulette is similar to its land based counter part with the added benefit that you never have to leave the comfort of your home to play. All you need to access the game is either a computer, tablet or mobile phone and a decent internet connection. There are several online roulette casinos available in India that offer not just one but different variations of the game.
As always, we will recommend that you choose a casino that has the proper certification. Just because there are tons of options available does not mean that they are all good so always head to the footer of the casino to check if they have the proper licenses. If you see one from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) or Curacao then that casino is safe and secure to play it. The certifications serve as a stamp of approval whereby the casino must adhere to strict standards of quality to ensure the games being provided to you are fair.
How to Play?
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty of playing at online casino. First step after you have selected a casino is to register an account. This usually takes no more than a minute and requires you to provide some personal information including your name, address, email address and telephone number. It is essential that you provide accurate and up to date details to ensure that you are able to withdraw money if you end up winning. Some customers will also perform a ‘Know Your Customer’ (kyc) check requesting for additional documents to verify your source of funds as well.
Once you have created the account, simply head over to the search bar found in most casinos and type the word ‘roulette’. This will take you to a dedicated page housing only roulette games. Over here you will be able to choose from a handful of variations including American, European and Live versions of the game. The American differs from the European as it adds another number (00) to its total list of numbers.
In the live version of the game, you will be greeted by a friendly dealer and will have also have the ability to chat with not just the dealer but also other players as well. The live versions have proven to be extremely popular with the audience as it replicates the feel of land-based casino.
The good thing about online roulette is that it is a completely random game. The outcome is not affected by the player or croupier in any way. The winner is selected by a machine that is called the random number generator. As the name suggests the ball will always land on a number that is randomly generated. Unless you are playing at what is described as a rogue casino, there is no chance of the outcome being determined beforehand in this game.
