All roulette casinos are not created equal. When you consider playing online roulette, you will be forgiven for thinking that the game is played the same in every casino. It’s not.
The actual roulette board may look the same, perhaps a different color, but whilst some casinos are a pleasure to play roulette in, others contain lots of little annoyances, which seem to get in your way, or on your nerves at every click.
If you already use one particular casino for playing other games, like blackjack, baccarat or the slots, it’s probably very tempting to play roulette with them, because of the convenience factor.
However, you should seriously consider testing out a few other casinos, just to see how playing roulette with them compares. You’ll be amazed by the difference in playing options, minimum table bet restrictions and speed of the roulette wheels.
Here are some very important factors you should consider, when choosing which casino to play online roulette in:
1. You must have the ability to adjust the background noise, music and dealer voice.
When you first start playing roulette, having an ambient background noise of a crowd, or some music playing, can be quite fun and help re-create the experience of playing in a real casino. However, after you’ve been playing the game for any length of time, this background noise can become very annoying.
Likewise, hearing the dealer call out each number after every bet can also start to get on your nerves. So, as you can imagine, having the option of being able to turn off any noise is a must.
What’s also important is the ability to turn off some audio elements and leave others on. For example, you might hate the background sound of a crowd, or the music they are playing, but you might find it very helpful to hear the roulette dealer’s voice.
Look out for a roulette table that gives you the maximum flexibility with the sound options.
2. This is a big one – as a regular roulette player, one of the things that really frustrates me, is watching that roulette wheel spin round for what seems like an age, before it finally comes to a halt.
When I used to be on a dial up connection this used to be even more of a pain, because it used to take even longer. I use broadband now, but it’s still very time consuming to wait for the roulette wheel to finish spinning.
Of course, if you are just going to spin the wheel a few times for a couple of fun bets and leave; the whole spinning the roulette thing is all part of the experience you are looking for.
This is why it’s important to be able switch the table ‘animation’ on or off.
3. The roulette table must ‘play fast’.
Even if you are just about to play roulette for the first time, I’m sure you won’t appreciate having to wait a minute for every play to complete.
Most people playing roulette follow some kind of system. This might even be something as simple as betting on ‘black’, after every occasion that 2 reds come in consecutively.
