As you browse through the selection of games on the internet, in the online casinos you will find that there are a lot of different variations of each game, that is something you wouldn't get at many live casinos, there are also features in the online casino games that are not possible in a live casino, like the auto play feature, where you can set the strategy that you want to play and the system will automatically play on your behalf sticking to the rules you have provided. Some online games allow you to set the speed of the game as well, so if you want the wheel to spin quicker to reveal the winning number faster this can be configured, obviously this is something that can't be done in a live land based casino.
How to Play Roulette Online
There are not many rules for online Roulette, bets are placed by placing chips on to the Roulette table in an area known as the layout, players bet on one number, a selection of numbers or colour of where the ball will land on the Roulette wheel to win. The Roulette wheel is spun in one direction and a white ball is spun around the outside of the wheel in the opposite direction. As the ball slows "No more bets!" is called by the croupier, it falls towards the centre of the wheel where it lands in a slot in a tiled track with a corresponding number which reveals the winners. The croupier marks on the layout the winning number by placing "the dolly" on the winning number. The croupier also known as the dealer is responsible for spinning the wheel and the spinning of the ball along with collecting all loosing bets and paying out to all winning players.

Roulette Table and Wheel
The actual layout of the Roulette table changes between the different variations of Roulette. The European and French style or Roulette has one 0 on the wheel and an American style Roulette table has a 0 and double zero on the wheel, the layout also reflects this change so that players can bet accordingly.
European and American Roulette tables have the wheel at one end of the table where as a French Roulette table has the wheel in the centre of the table however these are normally only found in Monte Carlo and is very rare to be found in online Roulette as the wheel is normally at one end of the table / layout regardless of having a French layout or an European / American layout.
The Roulette wheel decides the outcome of all the bets, as mentioned above, online there are different variations and many of these variations are focused on the wheel, you would be very unlikely to see these variations in live casinos and especially not all together in one casino like you do in an online casino.
