If you get a thrill just walking onto a gaming floor in Las Vegas, Atlantic City or any casino anywhere, you’ll love playing Royal Crown Roulette, a video slot game from Quasar Gaming. Select full-screen mode and revel in the look, sounds and excitement of a Vegas venue. Like any physical gaming table, this game is set against a green “felt” background featuring three rows of numbers that match numbers and colors on the wheel itself. In the physical game, players place their chips, or gaming tokens, on the tiles, cross their fingers and hope for a “win.” In the video slot game, the wheel is set above the red and black tiles. Video players don’t need to access the felt to place their bets, (but you can still cross your fingers and hope for a win). The roulette wheel is the focal point that draws you into the game with its siren song of fortunes to be won.
The wheel features 36 numbers on alternating red and black tiles and one green tile with a “0.” Place your bet with a simple click on the coin amount and you bet on where the bouncing ball will land among the 30-plus numbers on the wheel. When the wheel is spun, a metal ball is released and you then await results. Although it’s largely a game of chance, there are some strategies involved in playing roulette, and you can apply them to Royal Crown Roulette as well. You can bet on whether the ball will land on red or black, with a roughly 50-percent chance of winning, or you can choose specific numbers for a 35-1 chance. If you choose the winning number, you’ll rake in 35 times the amount you bet and that’s what keeps people coming back to this game.
If you’re not an all-or-nothing player, you can spread the bet around in several different ways. Here’s a breakdown of how to place bets and how much they pay. You can bet that the ball will hit on low or high numbers, odd or even, and red or black, for 18-1 odds and a 2x payout. Additional options are: Play a dozen (12 numbers), a column of 12 numbers or a line of six numbers (all six numbers that border a line) and your odds are 3-1 with a 3x payout. Choose four numbers or a corner (a square of four numbers) with 9-1 odds and a 9x payout. Choose a basket (three numbers: 0, 1, 2 or 0, 2, 3) or a street (three numbers in a row) with 12-1 odds and a 12x payout. A split is two adjacent numbers at 18-1 odds and a 2x payout.
With the detailed graphics and sounds of the wheel spinning, you’ll truly feel the pull of gaming fun. Roulette is a unique game in the casino world, and it was invented by accident. It dates back to the 17th century, when French physicist and inventor Blaise Pascal was attempting to create a perpetual motion machine. Roulette is a French word meaning “little wheel.”
