Sportingbet Live Games
Using live streaming technology and partnering with key casino establishments, Sportingbet is able to offer a unique online gaming experience in the form of Live Games. Using any internet-connected computer or mobile device, players can bet on a number of exciting casino games in real-time. Because of the sophisticated live streaming option, players enjoy the thrill of betting on Live Games from the comfort of home. Here is a look at some of the online gambling options available through Live Games.
One of the most popular online gambling options for casino enthusiasts is roulette, and once you’ve mastered the basics, it’s easy to perform your live bet online. The central feature of roulette is the roulette wheel which consists of red and black dots numbered from 1 to 36. Among the dots are one or two green-coloured zero slots (American is the double zero and European is the single zero).
Roulette also consists of a table which, like the wheel, features the number 1 to 36 with additional sections – these are where you can place your (online) bet. After all the players have placed their bets on the roulette table, the dealer (or croupier if you prefer) will spin the wheel and throw in a little ball. Once the wheel stops spinning and the ball lands, you have the winning number. If you happened to place your bet on that number (or on a group of numbers that include that winning number) you get paid!
As mentioned, you can bet on a number on the table and those are known as ‘inside’ bets. There are seven different types of inside bets including:
- Straight - one number
- Split - bet on two adjacent numbers
- Street - bet on three consecutive numbers on the same line
- Six Line - bet on two adjacent lines
- Corner - a four-number bet
- Trio - a three-number bet that includes the zero or zeros
- Basket - bet on 0, 1, 2 and 3 with a chip on the corner shared by the zero box and the first line
There are also outside bets divided into:
- Red or black
- Odd or even
- 1 to 18 or 19 to 36
Money wheel/Spin-and-win explained
Also known as the ‘wheel of fortune’, the money wheel is divided into 52 sections with a leather pointer at the top of the wheel. You place your online bet when the croupier announces ‘your bets please’ after which the wheel is spun twice before shouting ‘no more bets’ and then, once the wheel stops, the winning bet is announced.
Dream Catcher explained
A variation of the money wheel is the dream catcher game which consists of a wheel divided into 52 numbered segments, each with a unique colour. If the wheel stops on your chosen number, you win. If it lands on a multiplier, the next number will be multiplied by that.
