Online Roulette Games At Australian Online Casinos
Roulette is easily the most glamorous of the land casino games. The scene of the big wheel, the long table and the croupiers raking in or paying out stacks of chips has been immortalised in so many Hollywood movies. Even live dealer roulette will not capture the excitement totally. Microgaming, Playtech and NetEnt offer American, European and French versions of roulette. American Roulette should be ruled out because of the low payout percent. French Roulette gives an advantage in even money bets otherwise it is the same as European Roulette. We will pick up different games from the software providers to highlight various aspects of online roulette.
Microgaming online roulette casino games
At Microgaming online casinos the roulette variant to go for is Premier Roulette. It is based on the European wheel. You can customise the colours of the wheel and the felt and the game speed. The roulette wheel is in 3D view with a zoom. Alongside the regular layout you have the wheel layout for the call bets and the split bets. You are given individual details of all bets, including the amount staked, the payout ratio and the amount won. There is a comprehensive statistics section for analysing the past and current bets. On the gaming front Premier Roulette allows you to save different bet layouts and put the game on auto play. The Diamond Edition of this game allows a number of players to bet together on the same table and chat with each other.
The other special Microgaming online roulette variants are Multi-Wheel Roulette that has eight wheels spinning together and Roulette Royale that has a progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot is hit when the same number is called six times in a row with the player having bet on it each time. No one remembers when the jackpot was last hit, if ever, and this game is not recommended.
Playtech online roulette casino games
Playtech offers the three land casino variants in standard and premium formats. The premium versions have better visual appeal and multi-player facility.
Playtech Multi Wheel Roulette introduces multi-hand type of play in the roulette game. This increases the speed of the game play and is good for Australian players who want to get in more spins in a short time. Multi Wheel Roulette has all the roulette bets and features. You can activate up to six wheels. The bets you place on the layout are multiplied by the number of active wheels and deducted from your balance. The number called in each wheel is checked against each bet and you receive the normal roulette payouts for all winning bets.
Playtech Marvel Roulette is linked to the popular four-tier Marvel Mystery Jackpot of the Marvel super hero online pokies. It is triggered randomly and operates in exactly the same way as in the pokies. In order to compensate for the advantage of the progressive jackpot a Marvel Bonus bet is introduced instead of the 00 of the American wheel. This reduces the payout percent of the main game. If you wager on the Marvel Bonus bet and it is called, then you are taken to a three reel pokie where you may win up to 100x the bet.
NetEnt online roulette casino games
NetEnt offers four online roulette variants. Three are the standard American, European and French versions. The features offered are excellent. You can save your favourite bets and then get them on the layout whenever you want and run them on auto play.
The fourth is Roulette Advanced and is discussed in some detail here. The material difference in Roulette Advanced is that is allows players to place the complete range of roulette bets in a convenient manner. You have the inner and outer bets on the main table layout which are the basic requirement of any roulette game. The wheel layout is also displayed on the screen that allows you to make the call bets like neighbour bets and orphan bets with a single click. By clicking on the Special Bets tab you get a pop up where you can make the split and finale bets again with a single click. You can activate the wheel with two spin speeds. There is a history section that includes Hot and Cold numbers. This is more for show because regular roulette player know that all numbers have equal chance of being called in any spin. The 3D wheel view adds to the realism.
