Physical & Electronic Roulette

Online Roulette Guide

What do you call a roulette game that uses a video screen but sites in a land-based casino? Video Roulette is becoming very popular in land-based casinos and has attracted quite a bit of criticism in the UK when it appears in high street bookies (the so called FOBTs or Fixed Odds Betting Terminals).

There are a number of innovative varieties that you might see in some of the bigger casinos – we call these Electronic Roulette games because, well they often incorporate digital and physical elements and you can’t find them online.

Here’s the thing though- some of the more popular games do eventually make it online, so it’s interesting to keep abreast of what’s going on on the casino floor.

Chinese Roulette

This is a roulette variant from Win Systems that puts the Lucky Number 8 at the heart of the betting table.


Novomatic is another big supplier to the land-based casino industry. Some of the more famous Novomatic roulette games include NovoLine™ Novo Unity™ II, Novo TouchBet® Live-Roulette (semi automated), Novo Multi-Roulette™ (automatic mechanical wheel) and Novo Flying Roulette™ (virtual version). Phew, that’s a mouthfull!
