The wombat says: Roulette always makes this wombat think of James Bond flicks. However, now I’m reminiscing, it’s actually Baccarat that good old 007 always seems to be playing, usually with a Martini in one hand and a deadly beauty in the other. Baccarat is card game that makes no sense, and then there’s the croupier who handles the deck with what looks like a cross between a cricket bat and a massive spatula – adding to to the whole element of ‘what the hell is going on…?’ But I digress, back to this game.
Roulette Master is not a slot Wombat Fans, but a very good version of the European online roulette variant (just in case you were confused). European in this context simply means that there’s only one Zero on the wheel, as opposed to the American variant, which for some reason has two zeros, the 0 and the 00 (I bet the same bloke who invented Baccarat is behind this…). This is a NextGen game- they are famous for their slots of course, but they also make some excellent table games such as Blackjack Pro Monte Carlo SingleHand and this roulette variant.
In Roulette it’s all about where the little white ball (which is spun in the wheel) eventually comes to a stop. You can either bet on one or multiple numbers, on the colours black/red, whether the number is odd or even or pretty much any thinkable combination of them all. Read my roulette tips page for a few ideas of how to improve your odds.
Roulette Master gives you plenty of options for laying out your bets in case you want to try something more than just betting on a particular number or black/ red or odd/even. Orphelin Plein anyone? Or how about a couple of Final Chevals? Or maybe combining them both? In the “Special Bets” tab you’ll find these and many other preset bets. You can also choose between the standard and the racetrack betting table and you can also customise the colour scheme. Nice!
Another really cool feature of Roulette Master is that it provides loads of statistics from previous rounds – that help you decide how to play. The temperature option shows a heat map of the numbers that came up most often. With the “hot” and “cold” button you get an overview of the currently hottest (most frequent) and coldest (least frequent) numbers. This stats are a fantastic tool for your betting strategy. Will a particular number remain hot for a few more rounds or is it now the right time to place money on one of the cold numbers?
Geek Out Gamble
And if that is not enough, then click on the “stats” button, which offers more data than any aspiring numerologist could ever dream of. Here you get an overview over colour, range, odd/ even, hit frequency within different segments of the roulette wheel and much more. Great for the geeky gambler!
Talking of numbers: this wombat doesn’t usually put much store by the return to player (RTP), but in Roulette Master it’s 97.297%! These are pretty bonza odds and more favourable than those most slot machines have to offer (typically in the range of 95 – 97 %).
Play On Repeat
Like on most slots nowadays there’s an autoplay mode. Here you’ll find a repeat function, which places the same chips in the same positions as in the previous spin. And if you are in a hurry, the game also allows you to enable the turbo mode, which skips the entire spinning of the wheel.
Roulette Master is a stylish and well-executed version of this casino classic. It has plenty of helpful features, a cool soundtrack and nice graphics. Fix yourselves a Martini and have a couple of spins. Shaken not stirred…
