World Cup Roulette
I feel like it’s time to take a slot holiday, (a perfect time for a quick bit of surf and turf), with a touch of table gaming. So let’s head over and take a look at Inspired Gaming’s World Cup Roulette, a sporty mix up with some nice features. These are the guys and girls behind 100-1 Roulette, so they know a thing or two about the King of Table Games.
We all know what roulette is but what does this have to do with the globe’s biggest football competition? Well, those brain boxes from Light ^ Winder and Inspired have cooked up a great new wheeze, a game that’s the ultimate combo between the King of Table Games and the most popular game on the planet- football.
Well, it makes a change from playing with bat and ball, as I’ve just had a few rounds on the Cricket Star scratch card, so I’m definitely up for it.
Look and Feel
In World Cup Roulette, the betting table isn’t set against the posh green baize that you’ll find in fancy bricks and mortar casinos. Look closely and you’ll spy the grass and markings of a footie pitch instead! This is all about football, after all, although we are talking round balls instead of oval ones in proper footie- that’s Aussie Rules in case you didn’t know.
Inspired Gaming has worked hard to generate a buzzy atmosphere on this game- it’s part casino, part stadium and it can all be enjoyed while secretly wearing your PJs at home if you like. Or slip on your favourite team’s strip if you like (that would be Newcastle for me: I’ve spent a lot of time on the beaches there – not the mud flats on the Tyne in northern England, I’m talking about the golden sandy ones in New South Wales).
Anyway, back to the game- you’ll notice that there’s a special bet option for World Cup Bets on the bet table. This is how you’ll fire up the football part of this roulette game. And all of these features look tip top on a mobile as well, in fact we´d go as far as saying that it matches Play´n Go roulette on a smaller screen and that´s not easy!
World Cup Roulette Game Play
Once you’ve chosen your bets, simply use the arrow keys below the bet table to decide the value of your chips. This set up is easy enough for newbies and experienced roulette players alike.
Naturally, this game does offer a wide range of the roulette bets in additiona to the standard inside and outside bets. These bets include neighbours, lucky dip, all-in and more. But what marks this lively game out from the competition is the World Cup element. Prepare to have a crack at the special World Cup Bets on offer.
All you need to do is to place a bet on the World Cup section of the bet table. And you fancy using the swanky racetrack bet table that’s just a click away at the bottom of the screen. When you open up the racetrack, you’ll see another World Cup Bet segment here too. Either way, you simply place a bet on the special button and, if your number romps home, you enter a special feature.
The Bonuses – World Cup Fever
If your World Cup Bet lands, you enter the world of the footie star. You’ll face off against the goalkeeper for a penalty shoot-out. You’ll get 3 shoot outs to make additional win if you can make it through each round and proceed to the next. Put it in the back of the net! It’s a game o’ two halves!
You decide the amount you want to stake, and you will get 3 tokens to play the 3 shoot-outs. These are swapped out for credits at the end which are added to your balance. Each time you qualify for the next round, there are bigger and better tokens on offer which will open up larger prizes.
In each round there are 4 different multiplier amounts shown on screen, choose one and push the “Start” button to discover which of these amounts reveals the qualifying penalty goal.
World Cup Roulette is a solid roulette game from those quality game makers Inspired Gaming with an extra thrill factor. Step up to the spot and take your chances on a high tension penalty shoot-out for more wins. The combination of football and quality roulette play is a good one.
