The aim of Roulette is to correctly guess where the ball will land after each spin. By placing bets on the appropriate square(s).  Therefore it is luck that decides if your number hits.

In European Roulette rules there are 37 numbers, 0 is green, 18 are red and the remaining 18 are black. The zero gives the house it’s edge (of 2.7%) i.e. there is a 1/37 chance of the ball landing on any particular square, but the payout is only 35 to 1 + your original stake if you win.

Many versions of roulette are online, a common variant is 20p Roulette, or sometimes referred to as bookies roulette/FOBT roulette.  Normally found in bookies, this can be played at Flume Casino, and you can also get an excellent sign-up bonus at the same time.

Other variants of roulette include ‘French Roulette’ which features the ‘En Prison’ rule where half of your ‘even money’ bets (colour, even/odd and high/low bets) are returned when a zero is spun. Cutting the house advantage in half to 1.35%. Note that there is also the similar the ‘la partage’ rule, only in this case the player loses half the bet and does not have the option of leaving the bet. 

The worst variant is American Roulette.  In American Roulette rules there are 2 zeros, increasing the house advantage to 5.4%. There is no sense on playing the American version when there are plenty of online casinos offering the European version.
