Online Roulette FAQ

If you have never played The King of Casino Games online before, you may want to check out our handy Roulette FAQ before you put down any money. In this online FAQ you will find concise and helpful answers to all most popular questions about playing Roulette on the web.

Is it Safe to Play Online?

Yes, if you are playing at a licenced and secure casino in New Zealand, playing Roulette for real money is safe and legal.

How are the Results Produced?

For electronic Roulette games the results are produced using a Random Number Generator (RNG). At top-rated casinos the RNG’s are regularly audited by external companies to ensure they produce verifiable randomised results. In a Live Dealer game you can watch the results in real time, from multiple camera angles, and casinos that offer this type of entertainment should be licensed and regulated too.

Can I Play for Free?

This popular online FAQ always crops up. The answer depends on the casino you are playing at. Most NZ casinos will allow you to play in free (practise or demo) mode with the option of converting to real money at any time.

Why Can’t I Clear by Deposit Bonus Playing Roulette?

Queries about bonuses always form part of any Roulette FAQ, and for good reason! Most casinos will exclude lower House Edge games for clearing requirements. Always check the terms and conditions to see if the game you want to play counts towards bonus clearing requirements.

Does the Double Zero Really Make a Difference?

This is one of the most popular casino FAQ in New Zealand. When comparing European and American variants, the one has a wheel with a single zero while the other has a double zero. The inclusion of a second zero on the American wheel does affect the House Edge, increasing it from 2.70% to 5.26%. The zero is what gives the game its House Edge. If you are betting on red or black for example, the ball might just land on the green pocket, which yields a loss. If there are two green pockets, you have even more chances to lose.

What Are the Safest Bets to Place?

Your highest chance of winning comes from placing a red/black, odd/evens or high/low bet. In all three cases the House Edge is at 5.26% and your odds of being correct are slightly below 50%.

Should I Play at High Limit Tables?

Betting limits is a popular Roulette FAQ topic. The only reason you would want to play at a higher limit table is when plan on instituting a type of strategy such as the Martingale system. With low limit tables you may end up hitting the limit before your losing streak ends, and you have no way of doubling your money on the next bet.

What is the Worst Bet to Place?

In terms of probability, the bet with the lowest chance of winning is the single number bet. This is also the reason why it pays out the most at 35:1. With this wager, you have roughly 2.63% chance of hitting the number you choose.

Is There a Way to Beat the Game?

No, unlike some card games, there is no way to influence the outcome of the results or “beat” the game. Roulette is a game of chance, through and through.

Do Betting Systems Work?

If you are looking for more ways to maximise your wins in online FAQ you may come across a section on betting systems. Popular betting systems include Oscar’s Grind, the Martingale System, D’Alembert, Fibonacci and Law of the Third.

Each system will tell you how much you must bet based on what you bet before and if you won or lost. In some cases, these systems do work, but only over a long period of time and only on tables where the limits are high enough to accommodate large bets. You will also need a very generous bankroll and the ability to deal with big losses while you play for big wins.
