I decided to take a slot holiday and switch to playing in my Monte-Carlo dinner suit for a while with the Microgaming and Switch Studios European Roulette game. Not all of you will have sampled this wheel based game before, so what’s it all about, and how do you make a win?
Switch Studios Roulette is a European version of the king of table games, as roulette is often known, there being only one zero pocket on the wheel. That improves your odds versus American wheels which have 2 zero pockets.
You place a bet, predicting where on rotating wheel the white ball will land. This game is set on a wheel numbered with pockets ranging from zero to 36. I guess you all know that, but hey: I’m covering all of my bases here! This is a classic game with no side bets (play on something like World Cup Roulette is that is what you are looking for). You could call it the pure European game.
Look and Feel
The Microgaming roulette range was due a refresh if we are to be honest, and for this game they have teamed up with table game maestros Switch Studios to develop a slick, modern roulette game that isn’t short on design and features. It’s a dream team and they have come up with a design that makes other table games like 100-1 Roulette look a bit basic.
This game has been designed to appeal to both newbies and wheel experts. It’s a pocket pleaser that is so easy to get around and intuitive that I could play it with one paw.
The game’s graphics have a 3D look, which will make you feel like you’re sitting in a casino watching the wheel spin. There’s a intuitive betting area where you place your chips. Once the bets are closed then the wheel spins into sight. The professional voice of your croupier announces wins the betting periods and wins against a back-drop of casino table sounds.
Switch Studios Roulette Game Play
More and more people are playing games on their phones- and this isn’t a trend that is changing any time soon, so Microgaming and Switch Studios have built a table game that runs like a Rolls Royce on all your mobile devices: no mean feat for a game like roulette. We´d go as far as to say that this game matches European Roulette Pro from Play´n Go and that is no mean feat!
So break away from your desktop my friends and roam free!
Virtual roulette doesn’t need to be a step down from its land-based casino cousins, and this game proves it. Plus it’s fast. This Switch Studios Roulette game offers all of the fancy extras you’d expect in a top-notch bricks and mortar establishment.
You can play Monte Carlo style from your sofa: and you know how this wombat feels about being comfy! And being a virtual game, means there is room and time to explore a wide range of roulette bets.
You can activate a racetrack betting layout on the game to open up the Call Bets like Tiers, Orphelins, Voisins and Zero bets.
Now, I always think a bit of French like “pain au chocolat”, “j’ai faim” and “Je suis un wombat” comes in handy and to that list I would add the names of these Call Bets as they are a handy way of covering sectors of the wheel in one go.
The racetrack bets, so called because of the shape of the betting area, are where you place the Call Bets. You can also place other neighbour bets around different numbers (not just the zero) on different segments of the roulette wheel. This is one smart wheel!
Once you’ve found your roulette gaming groove, or at the very least your favourite numbers, you can personalise your play by setting up customised bets. Just set your preferred numbers as Favourite Bets and you can repeat the bet with the click of a button to place your wager.
It’s easier than pouring a long cool drink and hopping in the hammock!
There are lots of other handy features, like stats and custom settings to adjust the look and speed of the wheel.
Microgaming have teamed up with Switch Studios and made a virtual roulette game that’s a breeze to play and that’s easy on the eye.
Wombat Score: 4.5 out of 5.
Switch Studios Roulette is a table game dazzler. You spin me round round, baby, right round.
