For those looking to start an online casino, you will assuredly be looking for the best online roulette software. Roulette is one of the most iconic casino games in the world having originated in the 17th century. The two most common iterations are European roulette, in which there is a single zero on the game wheel, and American roulette, which has two zeroes on the game wheel. This article discusses online roulette software, and Lion Gaming’s white label casino offering for this popular casino game.
Rules and Gameplay
Our article will focus on European roulette, since that is the iteration Lion Gaming produces, and is the version that offers bettors the more favorable house edge. The primary difference between European and American roulette is that there is only a single zero in European roulette, while in American roulette there is an additional zero. The addition of an extra zero increases the house edge by reducing the odds that the roulette ball will land on a non-zero number.
Onto the rules and gameplay for European roulette. In this version there are a total of 37 numbers, of which 18 are black, 18 are red, and 1 is green (the zero / house edge). Once the wagers are placed, a ball is spun on the roulette wheel to determine the winning wagers. A player is able to place a wager by putting their chips on a number or several numbers that they wish to bet on. In addition to placing wagers on specific numbers, players are able to bet on things such as which color the winning number will be (red/black), whether the number is odd or even, high (numbers 19-36) or low (numbers 1-18), or even on a grouping of numbers. There are multiple options for number groupings, such as what is known as a “split” — a split is when a player puts their chips on shared edges between adjacent numbers on the betting board, for instance a 11 and 12. Another popular grouping is known as a corner bet, which is a group of 4 numbers that share a corner, such as 4,5,7,8.
Online Roulette Software
Every online roulette software solution will feature the basic gameplay while others will offer better graphics and animations, and include features such as faster betting. The best online roulette software will offer operators substantial customization options. Customization is so important in online casino software because it is hard to stand out from the competition otherwise. The industry is flooded with games and site designs that look identical to each other, which is how customization enables an operator to differentiate themselves from the rest. At Lion Gaming, we offer unparalleled customization. Our clients are able to have every detail from the table felt, playing cards, casino chips, to even the game animations be customized to their branding.
Of course customized graphics and branding are not the only way to have your roulette game standout. The best online roulette software is designed to be user friendly and include distinct gameplay features. At Lion Gaming, all of our casino games are built from a mobile-first perspective in order to ensure that bettors are able to play our games no matter which device they are using. It is imperative to offer games that are easily playable on mobile since over 2/3 of the world’s web traffic comes from mobile devices.
Lion Gaming’s version of roulette incorporates two unique technologies: Provably Fair and On-chain wagering.
This technology lets your bettors independently verify the results of their wager, to ensure that the house was not stacked against them. This is how we are able to achieve that with our games:
1. First the deck is shuffled server side and presented to the bettor with
a hash of the shuffled deck before wagers are placed.
2. Whenever a wager is placed, the bettor provides a client_seed to the
operator. The client_seed is generated randomly in the bettor’s browser, and they also have
the option to select it by hand if they so wish.
3. The client_seed is then used to reshuffle the deck in a deterministic way
leveraging the Fisher-Yates shuffle algorithm.
4. At the end of the game, the initial shuffle is revealed, allowing the bettor
to verify that they were presented with a valid hash, and that the deck
was reshuffled in the correct manner. Since the operator does not know
the value of the client_seed until the hand is dealt, there is no way for the
operator to manipulate the outcome of the game.
On-chain wagering provides the bettor with a trustless wagering environment, where they do not need to have any trust in the operator in order to know that their bets will be honored and paid out. This is possible thanks to the use of smart contracts. All of our casino games feature the ability for a bettor to toggle on-chain wagering ON or OFF depending on the player’s preference. If turned on, a smart contract is executed every time they place a wager, which then issues a public receipt of the transaction since the bet is taking place over a blockchain. The smart contract will automatically settle the wager, with the winning side being credited immediately.
