One way of playing UK live roulette is on a TV with services like the roulette games that run live on Channel 5. They start around 2 in the morning.

These days, most people play online as everyone’s connection speeds have become so fast.

SmartLive Casino roulette used to run on Sky and FreeView channel 39 but they shut the service down.


Super Casino was a UK TV channel which started in 2005. It was originally called Vegas 24/7 and was run by Telecoms TV. The company reversed into NetplayTV PLC and went public on the London Stock Exchange, with a market capitalisation of some £80m. Playtech invested in them and they were later bought out by Betsson PLC. The show was on UK national TV for over 10 years before the service was wound down.

SuperCasino was the first casino to have a TV Roulette channel in the UK.
