Pragmatic Indian Live Roulette has been created especially for the Indian Live Roulette market.
It’s a standard single zero roulette wheel, located on a real roulette table. The table is located in a specially designed area of Pragmatic’s Bucharest Live casino studio, where you’ll also find the Pragmatic Andar Bahar game.
The studio theme is heavily Asian influenced with the male dealers dressed in purple and gold Silk Sherwani and the female dealers in purple saris, with gold edging.
The table language is English which 10% of Indians can speak. Hindi, the most popular language at over 50% can be found on Playtech Hindi Roulette, which caters for the local language. Other Indian languages such as Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati, Urdu, Kannada, Odia and Malayalam are not available at the tables as an official language, however, some of the Indian dealers may be able to speak them if you ask.
In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the playing options, discuss briefly some of the strategies for Indian Roulette and the payouts you can expect when playing.
The playing interface for Indian Roulette utilises the standard roulette interface that all pragmatic Live Roulette games use.
It’s been optimised to make playing as easy as possible, doing its job extremely well, providing multiple ways to bet and lots of statistical information about past spins and results.
Let’s take a look at some of the options.
There are three ways you can place your bets in Indian Roulette.
Results Statistics are displayed on three screens, which are accessed on the bottom right-hand side of the screen.
The statistics can be displayed for the last 300 results, although you can select fewer if you’re looking for trends over say the last 20 spins.
Moving through them:
Playing Strategies for Roulette are well documented, so I don’t intend to replicate them here. However, I’ll summarise the most popular.
Most strategies are betting strategies, which means how to place your bets and when to increase them. They don’t concentrate so much on the numbers you should cover, however, I’ll explain a little about a strategy for doing that.
These strategies are as relevant to Indian Roulette as they are to any version of roulette.
The Martingale Strategy is a progression strategy. This means that when you have a losing bet, you double the next bet and keep doing so until you have a winning bet. This progression only gets you back to where you started, and, if there is a run of losing results, you could face a very large loss.
The Reverse Martingale Strategy works in reverse. When you have a win, you double the next bet. If you lose the next bet, you’re back to break even, so you start again. This is good for lots of consecutive wins, as your bankroll can increase very quickly. However it’s all gone with one loss, so cash out when you dare.
The above two only work with Even money bets, like Red/Black, Odd/Even, High/Low.
Less Risky is the D’Alembert Strategy and the Reverse D’Alembert Strategy. These use even money bets and stagger the raising and lowering bets, depending on the result of the last spin.
The Fibonacci System and Reverse Fibonacci System uses the sequencing of numbers on Even money bets – much in the same way as Martingale, but with less risk, as losses are recovered over multiple wins, rather than just one large win.
My personal preference is to bet on sections of the wheel. A loss is a loss and a win is a win and I leave it at that. I use the statistics to determine which section to cover and use 10% of my bankroll to make the bet. This is the strategy I’d recommend for playing Pragmatic Indian Roulette.
The RTP for Indian Roulette is 97.30%, which is the standard for European Roulette Wheels.
The payouts for Indian Roulette are broken down into two types. Inside Bets and Outside bets.

Pragmatic Play Indian Roulette is a version of live dealer roulette for the Indian market. It is essentially the same as European Roulette, but it’s presented from an Indian Themed studio.
Normal Roulette Strategies should be used when playing Indian Roulette. Read more to see the strategy appropriate for Indian Roulette.
The live dealer speaks in English on the Pragmatic Play Indian Roulette Tables. Playtech has a version of Indian Roulette where the dealer speaks in Hindi.
Pragmatic Indian Roulette joins Andar Bahar as games created especially for the Indian Market.
Quite honestly though, I would have assumed players would prefer to play in their language rather than English, but as English is widely used as a second language I suppose there is some reasoning behind the choice.
Indian Roulette is a good addition to the increasing range of localised tables that Pragmatic has and I hope it proved to be as popular as their other tables.
If you like what you’ve seen, Pragmatic PLay has loads of other great live casino games to offer.
