Online roulette is the most modern answer to players who want to experience this classic without entering a real casino.
The origins of this game are very ancient. They can probably be traced back further than any other casino game. During the Greco-Roman period, Greek soldiers used to play betting games using their shields spinning on metal points and Roman soldiers used to bet by spinning their chariot wheels. The game has evolved quite significantly since then with it likely to have originated from the Italian game of Hoca and the English game of E-O, played in the 17th century. Both games involved a circular table with ball that was released and came to rest in a marked slot.
The variation of French roulette was already played in casinos in France in the late 18th century. During the French Revolution, immigrants to Louisiana brought the game to the US where it was adapted with the addition of an eagle and a double zero, in order to increase the house edge. The eagle was later removed, but the double zero has remained.
Today, there are a number of roulette variations available and the game is now enjoyed by players all around the world. In the mid-1990s the game moved online and can now be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. When it comes to online roulette Canada players are no different and we know you will enjoy the range of roulette variations that we offer at Casino Midas Canada. If you are looking for online roulette games, you have come to the right place.
Basics of the Game
The object of the game is to guess where the ball is going to stop on the wheel. This is done by placing your chips in the betting areas, each representing a different pocket. Simply hover your cursor over the different areas to see the odds payout, which range from 1 to 1 all the way up to 35 to 1. The wheel is made up of 37 or 38 pockets depending on the variation, with 18 red pockets, 18 black pockets, and one or two green zero pockets. If the bet you place matches where the ball lands, you win that payout!
The betting area is split into two distinct areas, inside and outside bets. In the inside betting area, you can bet on one single number for a 35 to 1 payout by placing chips in a box, as well as two, three, and four numbers in one bet by placing your chips on a line. The outside betting areas are where you can bet on a large group of numbers, like odds or evens, black or red, or a specific 16 numbers for a 1 to 1 payout, as well as almost a third of the numbers for a 2 to 1 payout. When your chips are in place, hit spin to play!
