European Roulette was invented in France back in the 17th century, and four centuries later, you can enjoy the historic and hugely popular online version of the game thanks to Gamevy. Gamevy’s version of the game involves a combination of strategy and chance, but even beginners will enjoy playing as the rules are relatively simple. Plus, it’s compatible with desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets.
The fundamental difference between American and European Roulette is that the American wheel features an extra zero (the “00”) which lowers the RTP (Theoretical Return to Player). In this version, the RTP is an impressive 97.3%, which is considerably higher than most online slots!
This online game plays in landscape mode to allow the betting area to fit comfortably on a variety of screen sizes. If you’ve played European Roulette in a land-based casino or online before, you’ll be familiar with the layout. There are thirty-nine sections in total which include separate boxes for numbers 0 to 36, 2:1, ranges of numbers (1 to 12, 1 to 18, 13 to 24, 19 to 36, and 25 to 36), Even, Odd, Red, and Black. You can place your betting chips on single or multiple sections of the betting area, which includes overlapping sections so that you’re betting on two or four groups of numbers at once.
The game controls are listed across the bottom of the screen. From left-to-right, there’s the Menu (where the rules and sound settings are located), an “X” which clears all current bets, an Undo button, your chips (N.B., you can place bets with anything between £1 and £100), a “X2” symbol that doubles all placed bets, the Auto-Play button (which lets the game automatically play through twenty-five to one hundred games for you), and the Start button.
How to Play
Once you’ve read up on the games rules and placed your bets, all you need to do is spin the wheel.
Most beginners choose to start with the simplest bets such as Odd, Even, Red, Black or numbers. Once you’re feeling more confident, you can try out some of the other bet types such as Split, Street, Columns, and Six Line, which are all explained in the rules.
As soon as you tap or click the “Spin” button, the game zooms in to show a view of the spinning roulette wheel, and the ball will automatically drop onto the wheel. If, once the wheel comes to rest, the ball falls in one of the pockets that match any of your bets, you receive an automatic notification showing how much you’ve won.
