Playtech offers about 8 roulette variants at its online casinos of which Premium Roulette Pro is the most elegant and advanced in features. The three dimensional view comes with a number of special features. Players can double the existing bets with the Double button and can spin again with the same bets using the Rebet & Spin button. The close up display of the wheel is not on screen all the time but appears only when the wheel stops. This prevents the screen from being cluttered up with too many features but yet serves the purpose of highlighting which number is called. Some useful information about the bets is displayed on the screen. These are cover percentage for the bet and bet history.
Playtech Premium Roulette Pro offers call bets. It is one of the few online roulette variants that display the racetrack view on the screen alongside the normal layout. The racetrack view displays the numbers in sequence as they appear on the wheel. Only the display is not circular but elongated like a racetrack for convenience. This view is a great help in understanding and placing the call bets. When the cursor is moved over any of the call bets the numbers covered are highlighted on the normal layout and this also is very helpful. Clicking on the call bets automatically distributes chips of the selected denomination on the normal layout.
All five types of call bets are offered. The Voisins du Zero bet places 9 chips on 17 numbers in split bets, triplet bets and corner bets. These 17 numbers are the neighbors of zero on the wheel from 22 to 25. The payouts are calculated for the individual chips in the usual manner. The wager is placed by clicking the Voisins du zero area on the racetrack. The Tier bet covers another sequence on the wheel. 6 chips are placed on 12 numbers in the split bet format. The final payout for the Tier bet works out to 2 to 1. The wager is placed by clicking the Tier bet area on the racetrack. The third sequence on the wheel is Orphelins. This covers 8 numbers and hence all the numbers on the wheel are covered by these three bets. In the Orphelins bet one chip is placed on the number 1 and 4 chips are placed in split bet format. Number 17 is covered by 2 split bets.
The Final bet is an interesting call bet. The player first has to select an ending number from 0 to 9. The bet then covers all the numbers that end with the chosen number. Suppose the player chooses 5 as the ending number. Then the Final bet will cover 5, 15, 25 and 35. The bet places 1 chip on each of the numbers and pays out like a straight bet if any of the chosen numbers is called. The last of the call bets is Neighbors. The cursor is pointed to any number on the racetrack. That number and the two numbers on either side as appearing on the roulette wheel are covered. 1 chip is placed on each number and the payout is like a straight bet.
