In online casinos, roulette games tend to take a back seat as compared to slots and blackjack. Slots offer audiovisual excitement and blackjack requires a fair level of skill. Since roulette involves neither of these factors it is not as popular. The leading online gaming software provider WagerWorks has introduced some roulette games with innovations that add excitement to the wagering and draw traffic to these games. These games are offered at Virgin Casino.
One such game is Roulette with Hot Streak Bonus. Apart from the normal roulette bets players can place Hot Streak Bonus bets. Each Hot Streak Bonus bet covers a set of six numbers. The first spot covers the numbers 1 to 6, the second spot covers numbers 7 to 12 and so on. Players can wager on more than one of these Hot Streak Bonus bets. If the number called after the wheel comes to rest is covered by a Hot Streak Bonus bet then the Hot Streak begins.
The first number in the Hot Streak pays 2 to 1. This particular Hot Streak Bonus bet remains in place. If any other Hot Streak Bonus bets had been placed they are removed from the table. Once a Hot Streak has been started fresh Hot Streak wagers cannot be placed. If the next number called belongs to the same group the payout is 12 to 1. For the third consecutive number the payout is 100 to 1; for the fourth consecutive number the payout is 250 to 1; for the fifth consecutive number the payout is 1000 to 1 and for the sixth consecutive number the payout is 25,000 to 1. The beauty of the Hot Streak Bonus is that players receive payouts for each step on the way. Therefore if a player wagers $1 on a Hot Streak Bonus spot and wins six successive times he will receive $26,364 on his investment of $1.
The Hot Streak ends when a number is called that is outside the covered group or the player has won six Hot Streak bets in a row. There is one very important condition incorporated in the Hot Streak Bonus bet. Duplicate numbers do not count. If a number is called on which the player has already won in the current Hot Streak, then the player does not move to the next step and does not get the next payout. However the hot streak does not end. As far as the Hot Streak Bonus part of the game is concerned it is as if this spin did not take place.
The maximum wager that can be placed on a single Hot Streak Bonus spot is 10 credits in the currency of wagering. A player wagering in dollars can bet $10 on each Hot Streak Bonus spot, which is $60 in all. The Hot Streak Bonus bets are placed to the right of the roulette layout in a prominently marked area. The payouts and the position of the Hot Streak is shown in a graphic at the bottom left of the screen. Players can place the normal roulette wagers along with the Hot Streak Bonus bet if they want to or wager only on the Hot Streak Bonus if they so desire. Players can also wager only on the normal roulette game and ignore the Hot Streak Bonus as well.
