Online Roulette FAQs

Roulette is a fun casino table game offering players a great amount of entertainment. It is a fairly easy table game as players are wagering on the outcome of the spin of the roulette wheel. However, once you start looking at the roulette table, it might be unclear what are the best bets to make. The game is not about picking any number. At this point, there may be a magnitude of questions running through your mind at once. Jill has put together a list of all these commonly asked questions and the answers below.

 Why play roulette online?

Playing roulette online gives players instant access to their favourite roulette games. Online roulette also provides players with more variety, a larger betting range, and even bonuses. Players also have the benefit of playing from the comfort of their own home.

 Does the addition of a single and double zero benefit the house?

Yes, it does improve the house edge. Black or red and odd or even bets no longer have a 50/50 outcome, as the single and double zero pockets are green. This means there are three colours on the board instead of two.

The total number of pockets available to make single number bets is more than the payout. For example, in American roulette the payout for a single number win is 35:1; however, there are 38 numbers on the board. If you wager $1 on every number, your payout will be $36 ($35 plus your $1 wager), but your total bet amount for the round is $38. This means the house is making $2.

 Is online roulette available for free?

All of the roulette tables are available in free-play mode. The only online roulette games not available for free will be live dealer games. 

What are the best roulette bets to place?

The bets with the greatest probability of winning include: red or black, odd or even, or 1-18 or 19-36 bets. These bets don’t have the highest payout rate, but they tend to win more frequently.

 What is a house edge?

This is the advantage we have over its players. The house edge varies with the different roulette games. However, European roulette tends to favour players more than American roulette as it features only a single zero.  

 What are the worst bets to place?

The bets with the least odds of winning are bets on single numbers. While these have the highest payout rate, they tend to pay out the least frequently.

 Is online roulette available on mobile devices?

With Jackpot Jill, players have the benefit of playing roulette on the go. Players can enjoy different roulette variations straight from their mobile devices. To play on your mobile, head over to www.jackpotjill.net on your device’s browser, enter your credentials and start playing.

 Is there any download required to play roulette online?

 What is the difference between inside and outside bets?

Inside bets are bets placed on the interior of the roulette table. These bets tend to cover fewer numbers and include single number bets, street bets (bets covering three numbers), and corner bets (bets covering four numbers). These bets have higher payouts but payout less frequently.

Outside bets are placed in the outside area of the roulette table. These bets include: red or black, odd or even, numbers 1/18 or 19/36, column bets, and dozen bets. They cover a much larger group of numbers with a single bet. The payouts are less than inside bets; however, they pay out more frequently.
