Roulette at William Hill
William Hill Casino gives you the chance to play the classic casino game of Roulette in a variety of ways. Roulette isn’t a game that tends to vary a great deal from casino to casino, so the fact that William Hill offers the European game with the lower house edge of 2.7% automatically makes it fairly difficult to beat. The presentation of the wheel and animation of the spin is excellent, and authentic audio effects really do make playing Roulette here the next best thing to being in a live casino.
Roulette is a game of pure chance, and involves betting on where you think the ball will land when the roulette wheel stops spinning. There are 36 numbered wells, and either one or two green zeros which are there to give the house an edge.
American Roulette wheels have two zeros, and these give the house an edge of 5.26%. European Roulette wheels, like the one used at William Hill Casino, have just one zero, reducing the house edge to a much better 2.7%.
The odds paid on winning bets depend on the type of bet that is placed. If you bet on a single number outright (including 0 or 00) you will be paid at odds of 35/1. Bet on whether the number will be red, black, odd or even and you will be paid at odds of 1/1. Row bets give odds of 11/1 and column bets give odds of 2/1.
