How live roulette works

Game rules and etiquette

Live roulette really doesn't deviate all that much from the experience of playing the game at a land-based casino, but it is helpful to know the similarities and differences between the two.

Every site is slightly different, but in general you must place your bets in a similar way to how you would in a casino. This is achieved by clicking on the relevant squares, and must be done before the dealer calls 'no more bets'.

In reality some players will try to sneak in more wagers after this announcement, but that is not possible online, ensuring a fair game for all. Be aware that the minimum and maximum bet may differ between tables, although of course one of the advantages of live dealers is that you can just ask.

The spin itself happens in much the same way, with the dealer marking all the winning bets and paying out accordingly. Conveniently, if you then wish to make the same bet again you can do so at just a click of the mouse, rather than laying everything out again.

You also have a much more personal experience with a live dealer involved than you would simply playing against a machine online.
