The big boys and girls at Playtech know a thing or two about online gaming and their Spread-Bet Roulette game offers something a little different from the live casino fare in the shape of a smart and easy to use online roulette with a spread betting element. This is a great way to keep the action on the lively and lucrative side. If you want basic roulette then head to our 20p roulette game as we are talking bells & whistles here!
No crowded table
This isn’t a game that is going to warm the heart of a roulette fan who loves the buzz and atmosphere you get playing at a land-based casino, or the frenetic fun of being part of a live online game straight from a casino floor- this is a game for the roulette player who wants to chill out and play without all the distractions that some other roulette games come with. If you are after a low risk option we'd always recommend Playtech's Penny Roulette game, but spreadbet can also be played for modest amounts. Oor you can crank up the risk level- it's your call.
So what does this game offer? I wasn’t sure what to expect but the clear and crisp graphics have a certain class to them. It’s a game that’s been well designed and easy on the eye without fuss and distractions. It's pretty traditional when you compare it to Evolution's Monopoly Live Casino game which is more of a Wheel of Fortune. This game is roulette with an added twist.
The background of play is dark which picks up the traditional 37 pocket roulette wheel which looks pretty life-like and is a decent size allowing you to watch the progress of the pill around the wheel. What you’ll notice immediately is that the wheel has an inner golden wheel where you can place your spread bets if you fancy it.
On the left of the wheel is a handy magnified close up of the winning number. Above this the spread bet total is shown. Below here are the different value chips.
To the right of the wheel is a nifty spot to show your wheel history and killer stats. Neatly tucked under the stats is the ever-whizzy looking racetrack if you prefer to play with Orphelins, neighbouring bets and similar. Just a single click, and the betting tables will be swapped.
Below is the table where you can place your bets with a click and, as part of the table, there are the brightly coloured number ranges for you to place your spread bets, as opposed to the vanilla version of the game. Here too there are a few handy tools to speed up play like re-bet and double and spin.
So while you can play a standard game of roulette on Spread-Bet Roulette, why would you? We’re here to make spread bets. The golden inner wheel is where you place your second set of numbers on number ranges. It's a game with added extras like the Superman Roulette game - also by Playtech.
It is the combination of the outer and inner wheel numbers which make up your winning digits. And there’s the potential to win up to x400 your initial bet on a single spin which is enough to grab anyone’s attention, novice or pro alike.
While you play there are the realistic clicks of roulette play and the number is announced by a not too robotic voice.
Green Win feature
There’s a welcome Green Win feature where, if you manage to land the pill on the glaring green zero of the outer wheel, you are already quids up by doubling your initial spread bet side bets. It’s a nice little boost to the main game.
Spread-Bet Roulette is an easy to use online game without any fuss and with a set-up that would suit an experienced or newbie player. A great little roulette game with that welcome Green Win feature to give you an extra boost.
