Do you think live roulette isn’t all that different from the virtual roulette games when you play online? Think again, my friend, because technology keeps evolving, meaning you can get a real-life casino experience delivered to your doorstep by the internet. The online world may be filled with funny cat videos and memes of all shapes and sizes, but live gambling is big and improving every day.

Nowadays there are very many different types of online casino games, so here’s the lay of the land to help you learn how to play live roulette. From virtual wheels to charming croupiers, if you can imagine it, there’s a good chance it exists. You could argue that essentially any roulette you find online is ‘live’ in a way, simply because the result of your bet is generated right there and then. However, let’s stick to those casino games that feature an actual wheel that is filmed and spun live for the players to enjoy.

The general concept of live roulette can be split into two main groups: games that work with an autowheel and those that have a live spinner responsible for the drop and the spin. Jackpot247 has no less than two of the first category: Roulette Express and Roulette Express Premium. Both these casino games feature an actual wheel that spins 24/7 under the watchful eye of a camera that broadcasts everything live online.

When looking at how to play these games, they work fairly similar and are easy to navigate. Simply launch the game and you’ll be presented with a roulette table and shown a live feed of the wheel. You’ll see a row of chips with different values at the bottom. Click on a chip to select it and then click on the area of the table where you’d like to place the chip. You can use different chips across the table until you are happy with your bet. Don’t forget to click the ‘Confirm’ button in the bottom right hand corner to place your bet.

The difference between these autowheels is their look, even though you always have around 40 seconds to put your chips on the tables and confirm. You might enjoy Roulette Express more if you prefer a simpler styling while Roulette Express Premium feels more high-paced and slick. Can’t decide? Try Double Up Roulette where you can play on both autowheels at the same time for maximum speed and entertainment!

How to play live roulette

Moving on to the second category, which for many is far more exciting: a roulette wheel run by real croupiers. You’ll find games such as these in many online casinos alongside live dealer blackjack and baccarat. Unfortunately the interaction is usually limited, you don’t know how many others are playing and you have less time to place your bet.

That’s exactly why at Jackpot247 we host our own Live Roulette every day from 6pm to 4am. Rather than using a software provider and their croupiers, we produce this online casino game ourselves to work 100% live. Placing your bets is just as simple as with our autowheels: the table is yours and the chips are waiting. You can even save your favourite bets for next time for an even more relaxed gaming experience. Best of all, while playing our spinners will tell you all about the promotions we have on offer and congratulate you live if you win!

Finally, we take it one step further with our own Live Roulette as seen on ITV which – you guessed it – airs live on one of the UK’s favourite entertainment channels.  It’s a really unique roulette experience as we use professional presenters to guide you while playing and winning. Our fans tell us watching the show is always incredibly fun and the thrill of hearing your name called live on TV when you snag a win is fantastic. We regularly do shout outs for our players who email into the studio or find us on Twitter.

So next time you’re wondering how to play live roulette, simply pick the online casino game that sounds best and give it a go! Most games at Jackpot247 can be played for free once you’ve created an account, meaning you can practice before playing for real. Good luck!
