Online casino games come in all sorts of shapes and sizes but some casino games remain as popular as ever and one of those is the traditional game of roulette. Roulette games at online casinos are exactly the same games as played at any casino in the world and there are two basic types which are American roulette and European roulette. You will occasionally find French roulette at an online casino but it basically the same as European roulette with a slightly different table layout. If you have the choice, play European roulette rather than American roulette as American roulette has an extra zero called double zero which reduces your chances of winning. The popularity of online casino roulette stems from the fact that it is so easy to play and there is absolutely no skill involved and the chances of winning are quite good which makes it appealing to Irish casino players. The online casino always has a slight edge in any casino game but in roulette that advantage is only in the fact that there are 37 numbers and the odds paid equate to 35 to 1. If you are a low risk player playing red/black or odd/even there are 18 of each but the zero is not either red or black or odd nor even so those bets will lose. There are a great many bets which can be placed in online casino roulette either by placing bets on rows, columns or separate numbers or combinations of single numbers and the interesting thing is that the odds paid are directly proportional to the numbers of numbers backed so there is no such thing as a good bet or a bad one. Two chips placed on a split between two numbers results in exactly the same as one chip on both numbers individually. All online casinos offer at least one version of roulette sometimes with variations.
