Online Roulette UK
Red or black. Odd or even. The choice is yours in this classic casino table game that offers a wide range of bets including single number, grouping numbers, red or black, odd or even and high or low. Once you have made your bet, the croupier spins the ball around the roulette wheel and where it lands determines the winning number and colour.
Roulette is a game of chance that delivers anticipation, excitement, and the possibility of big wins. This, combined with its simple rules, makes it one of the most popular casino games in the world. Here at PlayUK, we offer the widest range of real money online roulette games, making us the go-to online casino for roulette fans new and old.
How To Play Online Roulette
If you haven’t played UK online roulette before, it’s really simple. There are several game formats available at Play UK, including live dealer roulette, but the way you play is always the same. All you have to do is decide what bet to place, put your chips on the corresponding number and/or colour and then watch the dealer spin the ball around the wheel.
If your bet matches where the ball lands, collect your prize money and play again. It really is that easy. The only thing to consider is what bet you want to place. The table is split into two types – inside bets and outside bets. As you might expect, inside bets fall inside the number grid and outside bets fall outside of it.
As a beginner, we recommend you place outside bets while you find your feet as they offer better odds of winning. Here at Play UK, we also offer free roulette games for you to try while you learn the ropes.
Playing Online Roulette On Your Mobile
At Play UK, you can access all of your favourite slots and table games while on the go. This includes our library of roulette games, which have been optimised to offer the same superior experience on smartphone and tablet as on desktop. This includes the same types of bets, features, tools and bonus offers, and all without excessive swiping and scrolling.
The Different Types Of Online Roulette Games Available At PlayUK
We love roulette just as much as you do, which is why we have stocked our portfolio with the widest range of quality games from only the best suppliers, including Microgaming, NetEnt, Nektan, Evolution Gaming and Extreme Live Gaming. We also offer the most popular roulette formats, including:

We are particularly proud of our live roulette UK proposition, which allows you to play at a real table with a real human dealer. It takes the fun factor up a notch and really makes you feel like you are playing at your favourite land-based casino rather than at your computer or from a smartphone or tablet device.
How Online Roulette Works
The main difference between playing roulette at a casino and online is that the dealer is replaced with a random number generator (RNG) – unless you are playing live roulette, of course. Usually, the human croupier will take bets, spin the ball around the wheel and reveal the outcome of the game, but when played online this is done by the RNG.
Random number generators are commonplace at online casinos. They are powered by super-smart algorithms that determine the outcome of the game and whether you win or lose. They are 100% random, and those used by PlayUK have been tested by independent third-parties to ensure they work as they should do.
Play UK takes pride in offering roulette games that deliver the best possible experience to our players, and to do that we go to great lengths to ensure they are honest and fair. What’s more, we are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, which means our roulette games meet the highest possible standards when it comes to integrity.
This means you can play your favourite roulette games at PlayUK knowing we are an honest, fair and trusted online casino.
Beating The Odds With Roulette Strategy
Roulette is a game of chance and therefore you can’t improve the probability of winning, right? Wrong. There are a number of strategies you can learn and use while playing to push the odds of winning more in your favour. There are several theories and strategies out there, but the most popular are:
- Martingale; this theory relies on the 50-50 principal of randomness. Start with an even bet and double your wager until you win. When you do, return to your original bet and the cycle begins again. By following this strategy, you increase your chance of winning the largest bet of each cycle.
- D’Alembert; when you make an outside bet and win, place the same bet until you lose. When you do, increase your bet by one chip. When you win again, take one chip away with each subsequent bet. The aim is to continue until you get back to your original bet. If you achieve this, you will have made one chip for every win.
Other strategies include Fibonacci and Paroli. We recommend you research each and decide which is best for you – some are simpler than others, but all can be used while playing online. Of course, you can just enjoy the anticipation and thrill of playing a game of chance and keep your fingers crossed that luck is on your side.
A Brief History Of Roulette
Roulette is one of the oldest table games and can trace its roots back to the 1700s. French math genius Blaise Pascal is believed to have discovered the game while in search of a perpetual motion device. He shared his creation with the French aristocracy, who instantly fell in love with the fun and excitement it offered.
The game quickly spread across Europe and around the world, and today is one of the most popular casino games for both land-based and online play. And in case you were wondering, the name roulette means “little wheel” in French.
Roulette is a fascinating game that is shrouded in myth and trivia. Here are some of our favourites:
All of the numbers on the roulette wheel add up to 666, regardless of which version you play. This is why it is sometimes known as the Devil’s Wheel.
The correct name for a roulette dealer is actually a croupier.
Strangely, you are allowed to take notes using a pen and paper while playing roulette. This is not the case with the majority of table games.
The ball is only ever spun clockwise around the roulette wheel.
Players are generally expected to leave the croupier a tip when playing roulette. This is different to other games where it is at the player’s discretion.
While you can usually eat and drink when playing most casino table games, it is frowned upon when playing roulette.
The standard weight of a roulette table is 100lbs or 45.3kg and the wheel has a diameter of 3ft or 91.4cm.
