There are people who play online roulette to make real money, while others simply want to play roulette for fun. Playing a free roulette game online lets customers in on the thrill, but also lets players remain free of any financial commitments such as the fees required by deposit roulette games.
The graphics and overall layout of free online roulette differs from that seen in real online money versions and land-based casinos. The free online roulette wheel is smaller and usually features numbers 1 to 12 and a single zero. The betting options remain the same.
