Live Roulette is a game show that was launched in 2005 that allows players to bet on the numbers that come up on the wheel in the studio. The bets were made by calls at the studio (the number was shown on the screen).
The Live roulette game started another era in gambling.
The name of the first show was Vegas 24/7, and at first the show hours were 3pm and 11 pm. After numerous responses and a big growth in popularity the show changed its schedule and got new hours from 6 pm to 2 am and then to 4 am.
The first betting record was £1m in a single day and some time later, in April 1st-3rd the bets raised over £2.91m in three days.
Live Roulette became available online in August, 2006.
The rules of Live roulette are the same as the ones found in land casinos. The game is played with a single-zero European wheel. Each game is open for 2 minutes and a new number comes up approximately once every three minutes. The turbo hours are at 7 pm and 2am and this is when the game is open for 1 minute and the wheel is spun every 2 minutes.
Players place bets either by phone or via the website.
NB: You have to be 18 to play Live roulette (as with other casino games).
Players from Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland are restricted to playing Live Roulette.
