The Ultimate Live Roulette Guide
Here at Castle Jackpot, you’ll probably have already perused through our collection of online slots, but did you know that we also have a huge range of live casino games that can offer all our loyal knights and maidens a top gaming experience and one of the most popular is roulette.
We know that the number of live casino games on offer has grown exponentially with gaming providers such as Evolution Gaming allowing players to experience an authentic live casino setting, including live dealers.
So if you’re ready, we’ll dive into our explanation of the different variations of roulette we offer here at the Castle!
What is Live Roulette?
One of the most popular games in a live casino setting is Live Roulette, a game where you will have the chance to play alongside a real dealer and other players, where you can bet on the outcome of a ball landing on a specific number.
At Castle Jackpot, the live wheels we offer at Castle Jackpot are those that players would find on a traditional European and French Roulette table and include 18 red, 18 black and one green zero. But, it’s also worth noting there are multiple variants of the game, so remember to take a look at all of them before placing a bet.
What Bets Can I Place in Live Roulette? Before wagering on any of our live casino roulette tables, it's important to understand the bets on offer. Firstly, a player can place an inside bet, which can be categorised as straight-up, which is predicting the specific number. Players can also bet on a row of numbers on the board, a split which includes 2 adjoining numbers on a vertical or horizontal, or a corner which includes 4 numbers in a block next to each other.
As a roulette wheel includes 36 numbers, jousters can also place outside bets on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd dozen numbers, whether it will be located in the first 1-18 (low) numbers or the second 19-36 (high), or is simply odd or even. They can also bet on whether the number will be red or black.
If you’d like to know more about the types of bets players can place at a Roulette table why not send a raven over to our Roulette Bet Guide, so you’ll always be sure you’re making the right call for you.
What’s the Difference Between French and European Roulette? New to the world of live casino roulette? Then you’ll be after an explanation of the difference between European and French Roulette. Well, it’s actually where the zero comes into play, and there will be one of two rules applied to the stake of the player.
The first is the ‘La Partage Rule’, which means ‘splitting’. If this the outcome, players will lose half of their bet. The other half is returned, and a player can then bet normally on the next spin. The second is the ‘En Prison Rule’ which means ‘in jail’. In this case, your money is not lost and stays on the same outside bets for the next spin, and if zero comes up again, you lose your bet.
What Live Roulette Games Can I Play? Here at Castle Jackpot, we have a wide range of live roulette tables available where players can get the feeling they’re playing in a live casino. Combining live audio, video and a text-based chat where you can communicate directly with the dealer; the elegance of an actual casino is perfectly replicated.

Live Roulette isn’t the only variation of the popular wheel spinning game we offer at Castle Jackpot and if thou art looking for something that is faster paced and includes all the familiar roulette elements you know and love then why not take a trip to our Lightning Roulette lobby?
What is Lightning Roulette? Including the same live dealer, wheel, and other features players would expect to see within a normal game of European Roulette, but this time the game has the added benefits of lucky numbers and lucky payouts which can potentially increase a players chances of winning during each spin. So what does that mean? Well, in each game round, between 1 and 5 numbers will be struck by lightning which can multiply the payout on offer if the ball lands in any of these.
What Are Lucky Numbers in Lightning Roulette? When playing Lightning Roulette, all players can still wager on the standard bets that are available in a standard European Roulette Game. However, the introduction of lucky numbers offers additional chances to win through randomly generated numbers in each round.
In each game, after all bets have been placed, the lucky numbers for that round will be selected and made known to players. If the ball lands on that number, the player will be awarded a prize corresponding to the bet type they placed, whether that’s straight-up or a corner bet.
What are Lucky Payouts in Lightning Roulette? Alongside the use of lucky numbers, Lightning Roulette also introduces Lucky Payouts to the reels. These payouts can offer different multipliers and will only be generated after all of the stakes for that round have been wagered. The multipliers on offer can range anywhere between 50x and 500x a player’s stake. If a player has made a straight-up bet on that lucky number and the ball lands there, they’ll be given the Lucky Payout.
What Type of Roulette Payouts Are There?
As we’ve already deciphered, Live Roulette already has a number of different betting options and to make sure you’re getting the right payout players will need to place their chips on the right part of the table. To help you get started, we’ve listed the payouts you could receive if you select the winning number.
