Thank you for joining us for HEAF’s first virtual Gala as we celebrated the contributions of Innovators & Disruptors. Our annual Gala is a critical evening for HEAF fundraising to ensure we continue opening doors of opportunity for our students. During this interrupted year of schooling, we need you to help HEAF fill the gap with innovative programs, guidance, and support services to achieve academic and personal growth for the students we serve.  Please Donate

Online roulette games you can play for free are a great way to get to know the game of roulette and its rules. However, it doesn’t hurt to learn more about the game, which you can do by reading our article about roulette rules. It will teach you everything you need to know to play roulette.

Fortunately, that’s not necessarily needed. Roulette is a very simple game. You basically just need to place a bet on any number or other sections on the roulette table layout and wait for the result of the spin. You can’t influence the result of the game and almost all bets have the same return to player, so the only thing you can influence is the volatility (by changing the types of bets you place).
