What for you is the whole point of playing Live Casino games? Is it the feel of being inside a real casino from the comfort of your own home via your online casino house? Or is it the chance to interact with other casino-goers and share the same experience? It might be a combination of those things, and you might have other reasons entirely. In this Live Automatic Roulette version of this classic table game, NetEnt has created a blend of the real here and now and the simulated. It is an intriguing mix, but if anyone can do it, NetEnt can.
So, we’re talking Automatic Roulette. But it’s Live. The purposefully computerized voice of our lady Croupier announces as much when we join the table. The updates of new additions to the table prove the same. So the game is live, and we can interact with each other, but we don’t have a real Croupier chatting away during the spin.
The concept has legs. Although not literally. If you are the kind of roulette player who gets tired of the Live Croupiers’ chit chat then this Automatic Roulette table might just be for you. So why not just play a “regular” Roulette game? Firstly, Live Casino games always add a level of authenticity to the play. Sharing the experience with other players in a Live Casino environment lets us feel more comfortable with the whole experience. As would strolling into a brick and mortar casino in Las Vegas. It would be weird if there was nobody else there, wouldn’t it?
Don’t expect any flash extra side bets or bonuses in Automatic Roulette. Roulette is as classic a table game as they come and has been entertaining gamers since the 18th century. NetEnt clearly feels like if it isn’t broke, there is no need to fix it. Purists will no doubt agree. All normal Roulette 1:1 payouts apply for Red/Black, Odd/Even, 1-18 and 19-36 bets. Dozens and Columns bank us 2:1 payouts, while Lines and Baskets stretch to 5:1 and 6:1 respectively. We start to see the payouts jump when we bet on Corners, Streets and Splits. Here we are talking 8:1, 11:1 and 17:1 while the ultimate bonus has to be the Straight Up number at 36:1.
Automatic Roulette makes no bones about its automatic heritage. It is not trying to be a Live Casino game like any other. The comings and goings at this table let us know that it is plenty popular, meaning there are buckets of players who prefer the Live Casino feel without having to feel uncomfortable in any awkward silences from a real Croupier.
