Roulette can become a boring game after some time, especially online roulette where the glamor of the casino environment is missing. Therefore some players try to innovate by creating different betting patterns. But placing chips on different numbers across the layout spin after spin has its own drawbacks. Hence some online gaming software providers in their latest variants provide a feature that allows players to save bets. WagerWorks has gone one step further in its latest game Expert Roulette. It allows players to wager on patterns using a feature it call bet accelerators.
Usually in online roulette games players have to move the cursor to the betting area using the mouse or trackball and then click to place the wager on that area. Therefore if a pattern involves five numbers the player has to click 5 times to place one chip in each number. The betting accelerator makes this process simpler using a click and drag movement. Instead of placing a bet on one betting area at a time, players may place a string of bets by holding down the left mouse button whilst moving the cursor over betting areas. Every time the cursor goes over a new bet spot, a bet of the selected chip size is placed. This system is not all that attractive as it first seems. The numbers in the required pattern have to be horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other for the bet accelerators to work. A problem is that as the cursor moves across two numbers a split bet is automatically placed between them.
A more helpful feature in WagerWorks Expert Roulette is the advanced bets. The advance bets have to be enabled in Options. Unless this is done they will not be visible on the screen. There are two parts to the advanced bets. One is the facility to save patterns. Up to six patterns can be saved. After placing the chips on the layout, the player clicks the Save Pattern button and selects from the locations numbered from 1 to 6 where the pattern is to be saved. Then whenever the player clicks that numbered location again the chips appear on the layout.
The second part of the advanced bets feature is unique to WagerWorks Expert Roulette. Four interesting patterns have been identified and separate buttons have been provided for each. The first special bet is the Red Splits. This covers split bets everywhere on the layout where two adjacent red squares share a side. Specifically they place one chip of the selected denomination on the following splits 9-12, 16-19, 18-21 and 27-30. Therefore the total bet amount consists of four times the chip denomination and the payout is 17 to 1. Similarly the Black Splits covers split bets everywhere on the layout where two adjacent black squares share a side. Specifically they place one chip of the selected denomination on the following splits 8-11, 10-11, 10-13, 17-20, 26-29, 28-29 and 28-31. Therefore the total bet amount consists of seven times the chip denomination and the payout is 17 to 1. Those numbers that are covered by two chips will pay out for each chip. The Red Dragon bet covers straight bets along a dragon shaped trail of red squares on the layout. It comprises 12 straight bets and the payout is 35 to 1. The Black Dragon bet covers straight and split bets along a dragon shaped trail of black squares on the layout. It comprises 9 straight bets and 2 split bets. The straight bets payout at 35 to 1 and the split bets at 17 to 1.
