Roulette is one of the table games that never seem to lose its popularity. Firstly it was played back in 1796 in Paris, France. Then, the roulette madness spread to Europe and the United States as well as to the rest of the world, including South Africa of course. People place their bets on the green layout, use various betting strategies and bet on their favourite numbers. They watch the wheel as it spins and the ball as it jumps before landing into one of the patches.
Not surprisingly as many online casinos were launched, players can now play real money roulette games via their smart phones and tablets. The majority of adults in South Africa have a smartphone, (quite a few people have more than one!), so it makes sense as a gaming option for people on the move. Playing on Android devices has many benefits; for example, it is much more practical to play whenever and wherever you want than to sit in front of your computer. Another benefit is the convenient game navigation via the touch screen which is more authentic and interesting than using mouse or keyboard.
Can I Play Live Roulette On Android Devices?
People like to feel the real thrill when playing real money Android roulette. Since the number of users who demanded something more authentic than the standard online roulette games, the reputable software providers developed live mobile casinos that are the closest gaming experience to land based gambling. These software providers, such as Playtech, Evolution Gaming and Net Entertainment, have their own land based studios from which the games are broadcasted. Therefore, those who play real money roulette can open the live HD streaming, communicate with the dealers via the chat windows and hear the background noise which is the same as the noise in real casinos. The playing process is usually the same as playing real money roulette at mobile casinos; however, at live mobile casinos there is no “spin” button since that is the live dealers’ job. The players have a certain amount of time to place their bets and after those 30-45 seconds pass, the dealer spins the wheel.
Is the Game-Play Smooth When Playing Roulette With Android?
Playing real money roulette using Android devices is usually a very pleasant gambling experience. There are several differences in the game-play that depend on the particular device because Android OS can be found in smart phones as well as tablets. Nevertheless, the latest Android devices, regardless the type, have powerful processors and highly responsive displays that provide extremely smooth gambling. Placing bets by touching the desired field is usually instant and the spinning of the wheel is seamless. Those who own devices with the latest Android OS such as KitKat or Jelly Bean can expect the system to inform them right away whether they won and add the winnings to their playing accounts.
Types of Real Money Android Roulette Bets
Those who know how to play roulette are aware that they can place bets on the part of the layout that is covered with numbers or on the part that offers fields such as RED, BLACK, EVEN and ODD. Depending whether the player places chips inside the frame where the numbers are or outside of it, roulette fans can make inside and outside bets. There are nine inside bets in total. The most popular bet, which also has the best 35:1 payout, is the straight-up bet placed on a single number. Next, the players can bet on two neighbouring numbers and that is called a split bet. Other types of inside bets are street (line of three numbers) and corner (four adjoining numbers). Players can also bet on six numbers by placing a six-line bet or trio 0, 1, 2 and 0, 2, 3 (European layout only). Another single zero layout bet is basket which includes the first four numbers from 0 to 3. When it comes to double zero exclusive bets, the player can place basket bet on 0, 1, 2 or 0, 00, 2 as well as 00, 2 and 3. Finally, the last double zero layout inside bet is the top line bet which includes the numbers 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3.
Outside real money roulette bets that can be placed when playing with Android devices usually have lower payout rates than the inside bets. The most popular outside bets are RED and BLACK. When a player bets on these combinations he tries to guess the colour of the patch in which the ball will land. Other bets with 2:1 payout are EVEN and ODD; the player tries to guess whether the winning number will be even or odd. Several other outside bets are 1-18, 19-36, 1-12, 13-24 and 25-36. When placing these bets, the players try to determine in which group of numbers the winning number will belong. The last two outside bets are column (placing bet on any of the three vertical lines) and snake bet (special pattern of numbers that resembles a snake).
