Roulette games in their current form have been around since the 17th Century, but the game may have its roots embedded thousands of years back in history. In fact, the true origin of roulette is so obscure that no one is certain when and where it was first invented in its rudimentary form. However, it is widely believed that roulette probably originated among Roman soldiers who used a chariot wheel to play something similar.
It was the French mathematician and physicist Blaise Pascal who may have invented the modern roulette by accident, although it has been refined several times since then. Whatever the game’s origins may have been, though, there is little doubt about its present status in both online and land based casinos. Today we have two primary versions of the game available in both online and offline casinos, aka American Roulette and European Roulette.
The Popularity of Online Mobile Roulette
As it happens, the opportunity to play roulette online on mobile phones has actually made the old casino game more popular than ever before. Since there is no shortage of mobile roulette games online these days, and there is no way to tell which ones are worth your time, we have taken this opportunity to compile a small list of the best mobile roulette games available in 2021 for you to enjoy.
Roulette Touch by NetEnt
As the name itself suggests, Roulette Touch has been designed for the capacitive touchscreen of a modern smartphone or tablet with a simple yet addictive interface. It’s available on both Android and iOS, although you will have to download it from their official website if you have an Android device (The App Store has Roulette Touch for iPhones and iPads). Admittedly, there are newer games out there for you to enjoy, but if you are looking for a simple roulette game with a simple and intuitive UI, NetEnt’s Roulette Touch is a good one to get started with.
European Roulette Gold by Microgaming
Microgaming’s European Roulette Gold is arguably the most popular modern roulette game available for mobile. As one would expect form Microgaming, the graphics are spot on and it looks pretty realistic, albeit somewhat barebones. However, the barebones look is intentionally done to provide users with a simple, yet good looking mobile roulette game. The soundtrack, in particular, is quite impressive and does a pretty decent job of making you feel like you are in a classic European casino.
Player’s Suit Roulette by IGT
Player’s Suit Roulette is, by far, the best-looking mobile roulette game that we have mentioned so far on this list. Developed by International Game Technology (IGT), the virtual wheel looks almost as good as a real roulette wheel, even on a medium range smartphone. If you have a decent enough display and SoC on your phone, though, it will look amazing.
Also, there’s another unique aspect to Player’s Suit Roulette which you may have trouble finding in other mobile roulette games; it allows players to bet huge stakes. Make no mistake about the fact that IGT’s Player’s Suit Roulette is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, but it is, by design, a game for high rollers.
If you are on the hunt for a mobile roulette game that allows stakes as high as £3,000, this is the game that will allow you to do so. Understand that most roulette games designed for mobiles cap out at a wagering limit of £300, so you should be able to understand why this one is meant for the high rollers in particular.
While there are plenty of other mobile roulette games available in online mobile casinos, these three lead the pack right now. Be careful not to waste your time and money on games and casinos which are not regulated and licensed by a reliable gambling authority. All online games of chance like roulette depend on something known as a Random Number Generator (RNG).
It is of the utmost importance that this RNG system is moderated and regulated, if the players are to have a fair chance at winning in any of these games. The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) are among the most trusted ones, although there are others.
