With its origins in the 1700s, European Roulette is one of the oldest casino games around, although some claim baccarat and blackjack were invented earlier. But it’s remained popular for so many decades, and now you can play this stylish online version from NetEnt without leaving home.
With its clear graphics, ultra-modern design and a virtual croupier, you can look forward to the realistic gaming experience and all the thrills of an actual casino, alongside a smart-looking table, racetrack betting and more, including a nicely done 3D roulette wheel.
How to play
The table design is aimed at showing the roulette wheel directly above the table itself, meaning you don’t have to switch screens to see what’s happening as you play.
Before you do anything else, choose your chips, make one or more wagers per turn of the wheel and familiarise yourself with all the game’s features. Then just place your bets and get the wheel turning!
Standard betting options are here that you’d find in other NetEnt roulette variants, including conventional outside and inside wagering, split, three-line, table and neighbour bets, plus the usual 37 slots marked 0 to 36. Bet on red/black, even/odd and 1-18 or 18-36.
As ever, you’re aiming to forecast accurately where the ball will come to rest once the wheel has stopped spinning.
To remind yourself of all the available wagers you could place, see the question mark at the bottom left-hand side of your screen. Additionally, there are statistics on hand to inform you as you place bets, for example letting you know if any numbers are cropping up more or less often than usual.
At the far left of the bottom of the screen, the paytable displays the odds for each kind of bet.
Use the rebet button to the right of the chips to place your most recent bet again. You can also save bets and access them via the button with a star on it.

Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player for this version of European Roulette is 97.3%. As you’d expect, that’s higher than most slot games. Indeed, if anything, it’s very slightly on the low side for a table casino game. Bear in mind that Euro Roulette is one of the most volatile casino games out there.
Each time, the chances of any single number winning is always the same. So, in theory, the same number can come up countless times – equally, there’s no maximum win here.
We believe NetEnt has come up with something very positive in this take on the classic game of European Roulette. And it’s a pretty easy one to play, even for newcomers to casino games, while the top-quality graphics have gone in for particular praise.
Meanwhile, the use of a Random Number Generator (RNG) means this game can be fully trusted, and NetEnt is, of course, a well-known and highly respected, reputable operator.
