Reviewing Playtech’s Roulette Variants


Playtech is one of the world’s most important developers of casinos games, as well as other software solutions that help casinos operate. The developer is arguably most known for its many slots based on movies and television shows, but its range of classic casino titles – roulette, blackjack, poker, baccarat – should not be overlooked, either. Indeed, Playtech powers many live dealer suites for various online casinos. It might be famous for blockbuster slots, but Playtech is at the forefront of table & card games too.


Looking at Playtech’s roulette collection, there are lots of different variations to choose from. The most eye-catching, perhaps, is the Age of the Gods Roulette, one of the most popular versions of roulette in the UK. It was, in fact, a direct replacement for Marvel roulette, which was discontinued a couple of years ago. In saying that, it’s still one of the most innovative roulette games around.

 


AOTG Roulette Remains Highly Popular
If you aren’t familiar with the Age of the Gods series, it’s a range of games by Playtech with four interconnected progressive jackpots. The important thing here is that AOTG Roulette is connected to that network, meaning any spin (regardless of bet size) on the roulette game could land you some serious cash, potentially millions. The RTP, at 95.73%, is something like you might expect for American Roulette, so it’s a fair trade off for a shot at one of those jackpots. It should be noted that Superman Roulette, a similar progressive jackpot game, has similar specifications and gameplay. 


Away from progressive jackpot roulette, Playtech has variants falling into premium and standard categories. Essentially, the standard roulette games are fine and very little is missing in terms of gameplay. Possibly a bit is lost in the graphics, but if you want a simple experience, then it’s no problem. Games in this series include standard European Roulette, American Roulette and Club Roulette. RTP will range from 94.74% for American and 97.30% for European and Club.

If you prefer, you can explore Playtech’s Premium roulette range, including Premium Roulette Pro, Premium French Roulette Pro and NewAR Roulette. There is a definite enhancement to the look and feel of the games on screen, but you won’t lost or gain anything in terms of payout potential. The upper level of RTP is still set at 97.30%. Clearly, there can be some variations on the minimum and maximum bet, but most games you can play for a 10p, 20p or 50p right up to a few thousand pounds per spin.  

Plenty of variants available


Alongside the ‘classic; versions of roulette, Playtech has many options for those who want something a bit different; Pinball Roulette, if you are a little bored of the norm; Penny Roulette, if you want to play for micro stakes; 3D Roulette, if bold graphics are your thing; Multi-Wheel Roulette, if you are feeling ambitious and lucky; Mini Roulette, if you like, well, small versions of roulette.

Obviously, Playtech has many live roulette games too. Again, there is a bit of everything on offer from Speed Roulette to Prestige Roulette Lite. The company itself claims it “is developing some of the most advanced technology ever seen in Live Casino, including in augmented reality”. There are some signs of that already as Playtech’s live tables are slick, engaging and immersive for players. With the company’s past form, you’d expect them to be working on the next big thing in live casino tech too.

All in all, Playtech and Playtech casinos are a great option for roulette, certainly matching up to – and often exceeding – its competitors like NetEnt, Microgaming and Evolution Gaming.
