Russian Roulette, also known as Ruletka Live, is Evolution Gaming’s roulette game specially designed to cater to the needs of Russian-speaking players. The casino is designed to provide the most authentic experience that Russian players can get and themed to reflect Russian land-based casinos.

Ruletka Live is available from 14:00 to 02:00 CET and features both male and female native speaking dealers. If you’re a casino operator that gets a lot of traffic from Russia or its neighbouring countries, make sure to check out everything this localised version of roulette has to offer.

Studio Description

By utilising various backgrounds, such as the blue screen background, 3D rendered graphical backgrounds, as well as various physical backgrounds, Evolution Gaming can create online casino rooms that resemble the most popular land-based Russian casinos. In the case of Ruletka Live, the background appears luxurious and is characterised by a beige colour and slight gold accents.

While Ruletka Live is designed for the Russian market, the gameplay is based on the European roulette. Therefore, the payouts are the same as in the European variance of this popular casino game.

If you have never played either of these roulette types before, we’ve included a small list of all the payouts available in Ruletka Live.

Outside Bets

Outside bets are bets that are, as the name suggests, located outside the main betting area. Since you have more chances to land an outside bet, they also come with smaller payouts compared to inside bets.

  • Red/Black pays 1 to 1
  • Odd/Even pays 1 to 1
  • Low/High pays 1 to 1
  • Column bet pays 2 to 1
  • Dozen bet pays 2 to 1

Inside Bets

Inside bets are located at the centre of the betting area. Usually, they are much harder to land so you will often have significantly higher payouts by betting on these than on outside bets.

  • Straight-up bet pays 35 to 1
  • Split bet pays 17 to 1
  • Street bet pays 11 to 1
  • Corner bet pays 8 to 1
  • Line bet pays 5 to 1

How to Play

As we’ve mentioned previously, apart from being themed, Russian Roulette is the same as European Roulette. Therefore, in its core, Russian Roulette has the same rules as its European counterpart. However, if you have never played it before, we’ll briefly go over the rules to help you get started.

When you decide to play, you will have a time limit during which you can place a bet. In roulette, there are multiple different types of bets you can place. You can bet on red or black, odd or even numbers, columns, split bets, and more. If you have never played roulette before, it would be best to access the game files where you can check out the game’s rules.

One thing to note is that you can place multiple bets at the same table.

After a while, the dealer will throw the ball onto the wheel that’s spinning in the opposite direction and announce that betting is closed. The ball will eventually fall into one pocket and, depending on where it lands and on the type of bet you’ve placed, you’ll either lose or win the payout allocated for the type of bet you’ve placed.

Video Description

As is the case with every Evolution Gaming’s roulette game, Russian Roulette is streamed in HD resolution. This allows the players to enjoy the crisp and high-quality picture on their screens.

Furthermore, each table at Evolution Gaming is equipped with multiple cameras to make the players fully immersed into the gameplay — the action quickly switches from the overview of the table to close-ups of the dealer and the table.


Evolution Gaming employs a multitude of dealers in their casinos. When it comes to Ruletka Live, the dealers speak Russian, are knowledgeable about the country and Russian culture, and are happy to chat with players.

Male dealers are dressed in white shirts and they wear black ties, while some of them wear black vests and bow ties. When it comes to female dealers, they wear stylish and fitted dresses which represent the attire worn in classy land-based casinos.

Mobile and Desktop Interface

If you’re playing on your desktop or laptop computer, you will be able to access the chat in the bottom left corner, while the top left corner will show you a brief history of the hands you’ve played.

The top right corner is reserved for various settings, such as changing between different views, adjusting the volume or setting, and accessing Russian Roulette’s paytable. In the bottom right corner, you will be able to check statistics or save some of your favourite bet types so that you can easily reuse them.

Since the game is developed in HTML5, it easily adjusts to screens of all sizes, and you can play it on smartphones, as well as tablet devices. Furthermore, you can play in either horizontal or vertical view. Depending on your preference, the same options can be laid out across the screen.

While you will have to make small compromises like choosing between the overview of the game or taking a look at the roulette table, that won’t affect your gameplay, and you will be able to fully enjoy the game regardless of the device you’re using.
