Save Bets In Microgaming Roulette

One of the advantages of roulette is that it offers a number of betting patterns so the players can break the monotony by switching to different patterns. And unlike in craps the different patterns offer identical and reasonable house edges. If a player chooses simple patterns like betting on red, betting on a single spot and betting on a column he has to place chips at only one spot on the layout and he is through. Toggling between bets is very convenient. However, most players would want to use more complicated betting patterns. These may include betting on the digits of their telephone number, a combination of simple bets to extend the coverage and neighbor bets that cover a number of consecutive spots on the wheel. In this event the player would have to place chips at several places on the layout and it can be inconvenient to switch bets often.

Most online roulette games offer a way out by allowing players to save bets. Then all the player has to do is click on the appropriate button and the chips are placed on the layout as he desires. Different software providers and even different variants of roulette from the same software provider would have slightly differing procedures for saving bets. The procedure to be followed in Microgaming's American Roulette is being described as an example.

First the player needs to go into the expert mode by clicking on the EXPERT button. In the bottom toolbar there will be an EDIT button with eight numbered buttons below it. Initially none of them are active. By clicking on the EDIT button the player is taken to the screen that enables him to save the bets. On the left hand side of the screen is the normal roulette table layout. If the desired bet has already been laid out in the game it can be transferred to this layout by clicking the GET TABLE BETS button. Otherwise the chips have to be placed on this layout. Suppose the player wants to place a $1 chip on each digit of his telephone number that may be 9821056839. He should select the $1 chip and click on each of the digits of the telephone number. The spots 0, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 will have bets of $1 and the spots 8 and 9 will have bets of $2. Then by clicking the SAVE LAYOUT button this bet is saved at Bet Layout 1.

By clicking the NEXT button a fresh layout is revealed on the screen. Now suppose the player wants to save a neighbors bet. The relevant part is the center of the screen that shows a roulette wheel layout. The player can cover from one to eight neighbors on either side of the chosen number. If the player chooses two neighbors he will be able to cover five consecutive numbers on the wheel. To select the desired neighbors the player has to click on the button next to the number of neighbors he wants to select. He then has to click on the central number he has chosen on the wheel. This highlights the sequence of spots selected. By clicking the ADD TO LAYOUT BUTTON the selected chip denomination is placed on each of the spots in the table layout on the left of the screen. The pattern can be saved as described earlier.

The player can return to the game by clicking the BACK TO GAME button. Now under the EDIT button, buttons numbered 1 and 2 are active. By clicking on button 1 the telephone number pattern can be wagered and by clicking on button 2 the neighbors pattern can be wagered. In all Microgaming's American Roulette can save up to eight patterns.

As a feature it really does come in quite handy... these elements to the games that Microgaming and providers like Playtech really help to differentiate them from other casino gaming software providers out there.

Roulette for us UK players out there has always been a big game although slots are starting to become more and more popular I think with the most of us. Features like this that exist online that you won't find in land based casinos that make our lives ultimately easier are fantastic. I really like the fact that Microgaming does this. Also similarly to saved bets in roulette they do the same thing with craps which is great as well.

Agreed... I don't think I've seen another software provider offer an elaborate roulette feature like this either. Microgaming is really good at thinking outside the box with these sorts of things. It's great though because you really can't do these kinds of things when you're playing offline.

A very nifty feature indeed I think that Microgaming may very well be the only provider that does this. I've never seen this feature in any of the casinos that are powered by other softwares that I play at.
