Roulette Games Across Software Providers

Roulette is amongst the most popular of online casino games. This article provides some guidelines to players who are searching for appropriate roulette games across software providers.

French Roulette provides the lowest house edge in all roulette variants. This variant releases half the wagers in even money bets when zero is called. Players who want to take advantage of this should seek out software providers who offer this variant. Microgaming, Playtech and WagerWorks offer French Roulette in their online casinos. Some of the major online gaming software providers who do not offer French Roulette are Cryptologic, Realtime Gaming, Rival Gaming and Vegas Technology.

Not all online casino players look at the house edge as the sole criteria for selecting a game. Innovative variations excite them as do the prospect of winning large bonus or progressive payouts. Therefore some online gaming software providers have introduced roulette games with novel twists. WagerWorks has the best collection of such games. 3 Wheel Roulette has three wheels spinning simultaneously and three independent numbers are called in each spin. This brings an element of multi hand card games into the roulette variant. Double Bonus Spin Roulette introduces an extra slot on the wheel. If the ball falls into this slot players get a free spin. In Roulette with Hot Streak Bonus if the next six numbers called match the set selected by the player the payout can be 25,000 times the amount wagered. Microgaming offers one innovative roulette variant called Roulette Royale. This is much simpler than the WagerWorks games. If the same wagered number is called five times in a row the player hits the progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot has paid just short of a million dollars about two years ago and therefore Roulette Royale is very popular.

The regular online roulette players look for features that make wagering convenient, especially because players tend to repeat bets. Though Cryptologic does not offer French Roulette or innovative variants, the auto play features it offers are top class. The auto play can be run using the same amount wagered each spin by selecting the Fixed bet type. Or it can be run in a cycle of varying bet amounts that are multiples of the base bet by selecting the Repeat bet type. As in any auto play feature the player can set the number of spins. Another aspect of this auto play feature is that it allows players to save complex betting patterns like those of call bets which involve placing a number of chips spread out on the layout. Once the bets are saved the auto play feature allows the player to select the desired bet. The auto play can be aborted if single wins, cumulative wins and cumulative losses exceed set values. The combination of facilities offered in the Cryptologic roulette game make it a very powerful tool. The Microgaming roulette variants and Expert Roulette from WagerWorks also allow players to save betting patterns and have an auto play feature. But the auto play functions only with the same wagered amount being repeated and the amount cannot be varied in a cycle as in the Cryptologic case.

Hence roulette players should choose games appropriate to their requirements at Microgaming, WagerWorks or Cryptologic online casinos.
