History of Arabic Roulette 

Roulette is one of the most popular casino games in the world. It dates back as far as 1655 and has been played in gambling houses the world over ever since. It has proved to be especially popular in the Arab world and is today enjoyed by tens of thousands of players from all over the region.

Over the years many different variations and styles of the game have been invented, such as adding an extra zero and Le Partage. One more recent variation of the game is Arabic Roulette - an online offering from casino designers Evolution Gaming.

The rules of the game are the same as standard European Roulette. The big difference with Arabic Roulette is in the presentation and style, which aims to recreate the Arabic casino experience from the comfort of your own home. The croupier speaks in Arabic helping to give you a flavour of the Middle East and how roulette is played there. 


The presentation

Arabic roulette is filmed in Evolution Gaming’s Malta studio. The game is fronted by sophisticatedly dressed and extremely professional presenters. These presenters all hail from the Middle East and are experienced in the etiquette and protocol of traditional Arabian roulette games. 

The setting is luxurious with a distinctive Middle Eastern vibe. There are lavish drapes, ornate cream patterned walls and a lush carpet.

Despite all the grandeur, the presentation of the actual game is one that will be familiar to all live roulette players. The presenter sits behind the wheel, which is located in the centre of the screen. The digitized betting table is at the bottom of the screen, along with your chips, balance and various other options. These additional options include a chat facility, favourite bets and a chance to see the results from the previous 100 spins. There are also a few different camera angles that can be activated once the wheel starts spinning.


Placing your bets

Placing bets in Arabic Roulette is much the same as placing them in European Roulette. As with European Roulette, the wheel has just a single zero slot. There is a timer counting down your betting window and you have the usual selection of inside, outside and racetrack bets. You can select repeat bets and double bets to speed up your selections. There are no side bets, special bets or jackpots.

The minimum bet is just £1 and the maximum is £250, making the game accessible for players of all budgets.


Overall

The rules, the interface and the presentation of Arabic Roulette are all extremely easy to get to grips with. The game looks great, with the little Arabic touches giving it an air of class and sophistication. The very low minimum stake value makes the game open to beginners and those with low payrolls. 

The lack of additional bets and jackpots means the RTP is a healthy 97.30%.

Overall, Arabic Roulette is one of the most impressive online roulette games. The gameplay doesn’t differ from other roulette games, this is a stylish looking game that does a great job of adding to the rich history of Arabic roulette.
