Roulette on the small screen

Posted Filed under

There have been many famous scenes within movies over many years that contain roulette.

Roulette is an iconic game, easy on the eye and classy, the gorgeous croupier, men in full tux and women in beautiful gowns seem to only complement the spin of the wheel and the click of the chips as they are placed about the table.

Over the last few years the gambling industry has become more and more profitable, with casino games of all types migrating to our computers, mobiles and tablets. Not only can we enjoy sites like  which provide us with graphics, audio and video clips in HD to enhance our gameplay, but we can also play whenever and wherever we choose as long as we have an internet connection.  It seems almost inconceivable that it will be ten years since the launch of the first generation iPhone, since then technology has advanced in leaps and bounds, and now we can find roulette offered on our TV screens as well.

Shows like SuperCasino specialise in live TV games, mostly live roulette with both male and female presenters. Live roulette is on the television each night beginning from 6pm through to 3am. So there is plenty of time to catch a game.

The games are broadcast live from studios in London, so the experience you will get is as close as you will find in any casino.

Quality sites like also offer the live game experience that you can enjoy via your mobile device, computer or link up to your TV.

Like any bricks and mortar venue you may have to wait for a seat at the table, but they are well worth waiting for.  Each game is in real time, from a real casino and with a real life croupier spinning the wheel. The games are streamed to your computer using your webcam and you click on the screen to make your bets.

Most casino sites that are of any quality offer live versions of roulette as well as the virtual option and each has its own appeal.  Virtual games are much faster than live games and this can add that little extra action some people crave whilst live games are very, very realistic as you are able to interact with the croupier and watch how the others at the table play their games.

It is thought that roulette will soon be available using a virtual reality headset.  Just imagine the experience of walking over the plush carpet, sitting at the table and watching yourself place your roulette chips on the table all from the comfort of your own home!
