If you can’t get out to the casino, or would just rather play from the comfort of your own home, you might want to give online roulette a try. There are a few differences between online roulette and land based roulette that you should know about, however, and it is very important to choose the right place to play online.

First of all, if you go to any site that talks about online gambling or online roulette, you’ll pretty much get the same message: you have a lot more control over your game than you would at the casino. This is because casinos love to distract you and keep you in the casino for as long as possible in an attempt to take as much of your money as possible. They do this by providing entertainment, free alcohol (which also skews your judgment), and by not providing any clocks or windows for your time telling convenience. The whole atmosphere of a casino, from the half naked waitresses to the free booze, is designed to keep you there and keep you in a certain state of mind that will eventually become very desirable for you to re-enter. This atmosphere, of course, is not present at an online casino, making it easier to control your spending.

On the same note, however, some people may actually find it easier to spend more money online, as the money doesn’t seem quite as real since it is not a physical object that you can hold. This is where you need to be cautious. You may not even be aware that you don’t view the electronic money in the same manner, so it would be wise to set your limit and stick to it. This is not to mention the fact that it may be a lot more tempting to play online due to the sheer convenience of it. If you even suspect you might be developing a dependency on gambling or that you find yourself wanting to gamble a lot, you should check out our Problem Gambling section and/or seek help immediately.

Another important aspect of online roulette is that it’s a lot easier to find a European style roulette wheel online. These wheels offer a significant advantage over the American roulette wheels because they do not have the 00 on them, bringing the house edge from 5.26% down to 2.7%.

Where to Play Roulette

Now, there are many places to play online roulette, and there are more places sprouting up all the time. It’s extremely important, therefore, to be able to choose between the many options to find the best place to play. The determining factors in finding the best online casino are: what kind of sign up bonus they offer, how long they’ve been around and how trustworthy they are, and simply what the quality of their game is including graphics and interactivity.

As far as sign up bonuses go, the different online casinos usually have something to offer, but it isn’t uncommon to find a 200% or even 300% sign up bonus. This means that whatever money you put in, up to a certain amount, the casino will match by their given percentage amount, allowing you to start with some free money. You’ll also want to carefully check out the conditions attached to the sign up bonuses, as some of them may not seem worth it to you once you read the fine print.

Secondly, you’ll want to do some research on your prospective casinos to make sure they have a good reputation and a good track record of paying out their patrons. The longer they have been around, the more likely they are a serious online casino. Don’t just rely on what they say either. Check out different websites – make sure you look around a bit so you’re not just looking at other sites they’ve created to hype up their casino.

Finally, what good is a game of online roulette if it isn’t realistic? The bigger casinos all have state of the art software pretty much, which allows you to interact with other players and gives you more of a feel of the real thing. Occasionally you might come across poorly designed software with fairly bad graphics, etc. This can be a sign that the casino is not as reputable and serious, since they were not able to hire a decent programmer and artist to design their games. Image certainly is not everything, but nonetheless, it can give a good indication of how much went into the actual software.
