Hybrid Roulette Online Casino Games

One way of innovating online casino games is by taking a feature from one class of games and incorporating it in another genre. Two roulette variants developed by WagerWorks have adopted this route.

Today one cannot conceive of online slot games without free spins. When ever a specified pattern of symbols appears on the reels the players are awarded a number of free spins. During these free spins the amounts wagered are not deducted from the player's balance. However the payouts made during the free spins are credited to the player's account. Double Bonus Spin Roulette incorporates the concept of free spins. In addition to the wells for the 38 numbers, including 0 and 00, the wheel has a yellow well. If in any spin the ball lands in this well the bets placed stand and the player gets the free Double Bonus Spin. The amount of the bets is not deducted from the player's balance. In the Double Bonus Spin two blue lights appear on the wheel. When this spin is activated, both blue lights independently rotate around the wheel eventually coming to a stop next to a number. If that number is covered by a standing bet the player receives a payout, which is immediately credited to his account. Since both blue lights rotate independently both can result in payouts. In the Double Bonus Spin if one or both the blue lights stop at the yellow well then bonus payouts result. Another attraction of this roulette variant is that players can place a bet on the yellow well just like any other number. Therefore if the ball lands on the yellow well when it is covered by a bet the player receives a regular payout in addition to the free Double Bonus Spin. The yellow well is one and a half times the width of the regular wells so it is more likely to catch the ball and the blue lights.

The second hybrid roulette variant incorporates a feature from multi-hand video poker. In a four hand video poker game the player has to wager four times the unit bet. Four hands are then independently dealt and compared against the payout table. In 3 Wheel Roulette, three concentric roulette wheels spin simultaneously but independently. Common wagers are placed for all three wheels. These are three times the unit wagers. There is a common well for all three wheels. The ball first falls into a well and then the three wheels stop one after another. The three numbers aligned with the well are called. Bets corresponding to any of these numbers result in a payout. 3 Wheel Roulette effectively allows players to wager at three spins in the time taken for one. This not only makes the game go much faster but adds excitement as well. To add further excitement, 3 Wheel Roulette offers a Color Up Bonus bet. Depending on different combinations of the numbers called the players get a bonus payout provided they have placed the bonus wager. The maximum payout is when all three numbers are 0. This payout is 1000 to 1.

Double Bonus Spin Roulette and 3 Wheel Roulette can be played at all online casinos powered by WagerWorks. CasinoAdvisor recommends Virgin Casino.
