Video Roulette From Playtech

Published on: October 24, 2012 

Playtech Video Roulette gives some of the visual appeal of live dealer roulette games. When the spin is activated the video clip displays the croupier spinning the roulette wheel and then moves on to a really sharp close up of the wheel. Players will need a fast Internet connection to enjoy this video clip. Players with a slow speed connection or those players who want to get a move on with the game can play in the Turbo mode. The standard roulette buttons have been provided and the basic game play also follows the usual practice.

Playtech Video Roulette has all the features of French Roulette but has the black and red layout of European Roulette. It thus combines the best of both variants. The most attractive French Roulette feature is the La Partage bet. This bet returns half the wager on even money bets in case zero is called and this reduces the house edge on these bets. The Special button reveals a drop down box with a list of bets peculiar to French Roulette. The Zero Game bet is an interesting bet which covers zero and six numbers closest to zero on the wheel. These numbers are 12, 35, 3, 26, 0, 32 and 15. In the bet 4 chips, or multiples thereof, are placed as follows: 1 chip on 0-3 split, 1 on 12-15 split, 1 on 26 straight up and 1 on 32-35 split. The three Finale bets are also available. Finale Plein covers all numbers on the layout ending in a stated digit. One chip will be placed on each number. Finale Cheval Plein specifies two consecutive digits and covers all numbers ending these digits. Finale Cheval also specifies two digits but these are not consecutive. Players will find that the same bets have been repeated in different languages. Playtech online casinos cater to players from all over Europe and therefore cover all common nomenclatures in Video Roulette. If new players find it difficult to understand some of the bets, they can access the Help file from the Menu button in the bottom toolbar. All the bets are explained in detail there.

What makes Playtech Video Roulette different from other online variants is the Heat Map. Before explaining the Heat Map it is essential to point out that each spin of the roulette wheel is independent and cannot be determined by the earlier spins in any manner. In other words each number has the same likelihood of being called in any given spin. But many online roulette players believe in tracking past numbers to predict numbers more likely to be called. Therefore generally online roulette variants provide a simple history of past numbers. This does not make any predictions. Playtech Video Roulette also does so, but it also provides a Heat Map which actually makes predictions and depicts them visually. The hot numbers are those which are more likely to be called based on the assumption that numbers called more often in the past are likely to repeat. The cold numbers are numbers that are more likely to be called if the assumption is that things even out in the long run. Therefore numbers called more often in the past are unlikely to repeat. Players can choose which theory to follow. The Heat Map is depicted in both layout form and wheel form. There is a provision to place bets on the four hottest numbers and the four coldest numbers.
