Whenever somebody thinks of a casino, they will inevitably picture the famous roulette wheel. This wheel is an enduring symbol of all casinos, and it’s no different at our casino, where we have a variety of online roulette games that you’ll love.
Roulette, which literally means “little wheel” in French, is one of the simplest and funniest casino games to understand and play, and offers the potential of huge wins if you are savvy enough with the bets you place. You simply have to predict where the roulette ball will most likely land to be a big winner.

How to play roulette
Roulette is quite a simple game to understand, and very exciting to play.
Here are the basics:
- A roulette wheel is divided into either 37 or 38 pockets, dependent on which roulette version you are playing.
- When you place your bets, you need to predict either the number or colour that you the think the ball will most likely land on.
- The croupier will then spin the wheel in one direction and the ball in the opposite direction (on a circular track that runs on the boundary of the wheel).
- As the ball loses momentum, it will fall into one of the numbered and coloured pockets in the wheel
- Should the ball land on your placed bet, you’ll win!
There are various ways you can bet on roulette.

Types of Roulette at Platinum Play
You can play 3 versions of roulette at Platinum Play:
- European Roulette
- French Roulette
- American Roulette
Both the French and European versions have 37 pockets on the wheel (and a “00” pocket) while the American version has 38 pockets (sized at both “0” and “00”). French roulette is also laid out differently to European and American roulette, and allows different betting rules – you can make a “call bet”, which is a pre-bet you make on special groups of numbers that have been categorised by their positon on the wheel.
