  • Reload Bonus
    Used by online casino and cardrooms, this is a promotional cash offer in attempts to build customer loyalty and to have existing players make additional deposits.
  • RNG
    RNG stands for 'Random Number Generator'. This is the core of any online casino, a computer generated randomness that randomly assigns the outcome of a result such as a roulette spin or a cards shuffle. Usually, housed in a central secure server to ensure gaming fairness, a message is sent to the RNG over the internet each time a player makes a bet/wager. The third-party certified RNG then randomly picks a number, which then is sent back to you (in the casino game) all in a matter of seconds.
  • Rouge [Roulette]
    French for red.
  • Roulette
    Roulette (French for "little wheel") is a casino and gambling game where players can place bets on either a number, a range of numbers, the colors red or black, or whether the number is odd or even. To determine the winner, a croupier spins a wheel in one direction, then tosses a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. The ball eventually falls on to the wheel and then into one of 37 (European roulette) or 38 (American roulette) colored and numbered so called pockets on the wheel.
