While there are always countless ways to bet on roulette, if for whatever reason you’ve grown bored of the conventional wagering options and want to play something with a little bit more scope, why not take Playtech’s Roulette Pro for a spin? Featuring a state-of-the-art user interface that displays everything from an animated 3D reel to the betting history for your session in a series of handy pop-up windows, Roulette Pro provides the same great functionality as classic roulette but also throws a few new outside bets into the equation.
Roulette Pro is played on a conventional European reel and, as such, only features a single zero space. This means that players will be presented with 36 red or black numbered spaces and one green zero, with the object of the game being to bet on which of these spaces you think the roulette ball is likely to land on at the end of any spin. Of course, if you were always making straight up bets on the number, it would be pretty difficult to turn a profit, so there are a number of outside bets such as whether the space will be red or black, odd or even or in the first or second half of the wheel to help balance your risk. In Roulette Pro, however, an additional list of bets such as Voisins du Zero, Tier and Orphelins are also available, allowing players to cover more of the board in a single click.
As with all of Playtech’s roulette titles, in order to start a game of Roulette Pro players need to first select a chip denomination from £0.01-£25.00. They must then select a section of the betting board to place said chip value, with the accepted wagers for straight up bets ranging from £0.10-£25.00. Multiple chips can be placed on the same space by clicking repeatedly, while any misplaced chips can be removed by holding shift when clicking. Once players are satisfied with their betting layout, they merely need to hit “spin” to start the game, with all payouts being calculated automatically.
The presence of several new one-click betting options in Roulette Pro makes it far easier to play a strategy for the long-term, as wagers like Voisins du Zero allow you to cover a large section of the board to create a more manageable risk/reward balance. As ever, the aim of the game is really to find a betting configuration that provides you with the best chance of profits without jeopardising your bankroll, but what this actually means in practice is based on the level of risk you’re willing to undertake and the cash amount you’re used to wagering on each spin.
If you’re already a seasoned roulette player, Roulette Pro is a great edition of the game that makes placing complicated betting combinations far more expedient. If you’re a beginner, however, the game still offers all of the conventional wagering options you’d expect in a visually superb setting. Overall, this means it’s a title that provides the best of both worlds at a wide variety of stakes.
