If you like big multipliers and a roulette game that has you on the edge of your seat then you’ll want to take a spin on 1000 Diamond Bet Roulette. With high stakes and a volatile vibe, without the hustle bustle of neighbouring players, this is the ultimate big cash game.
If you prefer your wheels to come with 37 numbers then head for Roulette Deluxe or another of our free demos, because the table looks slightly different on this game, we can tell you!
The main reason Playtech’s 1000 Diamond Bet Roulette appealed to me is the whopping jackpot multiplier that’s up for grabs, if Lady Luck is smiling on you then you could be quids in with a x1000 multiplier- that’s so massive that it’s hard to even think how to spend it! Kerching! Diamonds and the wheel go well together (check out our Diamond Strike live roulette if you don’t believe us) so we were hoping for big things from this game!
Look and feel
You’ll notice that the slightly unusual roulette wheel is at the top of your screen, this is an oval wheel having effectively been divided into five segments by the positioning of some rather tasty diamond gems (think about that game title) in blue, green, red, purple and white around it. These are the jackpots with one big one to rule them all! There are 100 alternative red and black numbers to choose from on the wheel, plus those high-value gems. The big jackpot number, that oh so tempting x1000, is marked with an extra special blue diamond.
The lower part of the screen is your playtable which is very straight forward and easy to see. Set against blue baize it’s easy on the eye and simple enough for a total beginner to navigate simply with the diamonds on the left side of the numbers- easy to see and easy to pick! On the right bottom of the screen you can keep track on the amount you bet with a total bet display.
The background sound is simply an instructive voice asking you place bets and the usual electronic clicks of gameplay- there’s nothing to niggle the player here.
You’ll be playing this game to target that mighty jackpot but the wheel itself has some good returns on offer too with fixed odds of 100/1 before you approach that big beast of a jackpot! But clearly you’ll want to cover the five gems in your betting strategy and then some of the numbers too, to be in the running for the biggest pay-out of all!
To place a bet, simply pick the value of the chips (on the left of the screen) that you want to place and then with a simple click you put them down on the clear and well-laid out playtable and hit the spin button (there’s even an autospin option-they’ve thought of it all).
The outside bets are the usual, black and red, odd and evens. The minimum bet per number is 0.10p and the maximum is £50, there’s a £10,000 spin limit on the table- that’s a big plus for those of you who like to play high stakes.
This is a game that allows you to up the tempo of your own play by using some handy shortcuts (on the left of the screen) including a handy QuickBet option where you can select a whole row of numbers with the click of a slider and a nifty Lucky Number Bet option where you can, with a simple click, choose all the numbers neighbouring your lucky number. Now that’s one way to speed up play and get the game going pronto!
In the centre of the wheel, the winning number is displayed large and clear so you don’t need to try to keep your eye on that speedy ball! There’s a single touch button to repeat your bet so this helps cut out any fuss if you want to keep the game moving along.
Playtech have come up with a satisfying spin on the usual smart online roulette game, offering a different type of diamond-tastic jackpot with a frankly staggering multiplier. Apart from the huge appeal of those jackpots this is a game that is easy to play, and offers something that looks and feels like a breath of fresh air. It gives the well-loved roulette game something a little (or should I say big) extra. Va-va-voom!
