The sky is the limit when you think of the possibilities that can be achieved online. From the three major types of online casino roulette (European, American, French) comes forth a handful of other roulette game versions that some of us may find quite interesting.
Thanks to the rapid development in computing and Internet technology as well as the creativity of game makers, these new breeds of roulette games have the potential to deliver that level of fun and excitement which previously can only be found in the three classic variants.
In a previous post, we pointed out some of the different roulette game variations that are quite popular among online casino players. In the same vein, we will show you once again yet another batch of unique roulette game variants which can only be played online.
Although the name, the format, and other game aspects may greatly differ from what you used to play, these Internet roulette games follow the same objective: to make predictions as to where the ball might land in the roulette wheel.
So, without any further delay, let us get to know more unusual roulette game versions found on the Internet.
The Express Roulette
If you are an online game developer, what rules or aspect of roulette you want to change or improve? In Express Roulette, the developers thought of adding more balls! This particular roulette variety is played with three balls. It is popular among the online casino community because of its increased possibility to place more extra bets. Not only that, the payouts are quite huge which is now up to 210 to 1.
The Mini Roulette
If you think that the rules of a full European or American roulette version is too much to handle, then you might want to take a short repose with the Mini-version of roulette. This special game is most popular among beginners because instead of 37 numbers, there are only 12 but it still includes the zero.
Intermediate to expert players could still find the excitement and profit with the Mini-version as the betting rules are just the same: single numbers, combination of numbers, odd/even, red/black. With only 12 numbers, the chances of winning in the Mini-version is quite higher compared to that of the American roulette.
Yup! It’s roulette, but instead of numbers, the game developers opted for letters. To make it even more complicated, the colors are now more than two!
Instead of 36/37, there are 25 slots in the Alphabetic Roulette wheel and table, each signifying the letters from A to X, plus 1 for both Y and Z. And as we said, there are now six colors involved in this game and each consists of four letters. The YZ, being the special kind, is treated like the single zero of a European/American roulette as it has a different color.
It might tickle your curiosity to try the game but the house edge of 4% could quell your appetite for a roulette adventure.
The Chinese Roulette
Since we’re talking about making huge changes in the game’s landscape, let us talk about the Chinese Roulette. Readers might already have an inkling as to what could make the game stand out, and yes, it is still the absence of numbers.
Instead of numbers, this oriental-inspired online roulette game uses the Chinese zodiac signs: Rooster, Dog, Dragon, Tiger, Monkey, Goat, Horse, Rat, Snake, Pig, Ox, and Rabbit. The payout is 11 to 1 and instead of zero, the game displays an eternity sign.
The Pinball Roulette
If you like the concept of combining roulette and bingo into one game, called the Spingo, then you might be interested with the pinball roulette. It’s a clever combination of the two well-loved games.
The most striking feature of this game is that it has no roulette wheel. There is, however, a ball which is launched like you do with a pinball game. It then collides with plenty of obstacles, which changes its course along the way. The result would then be determined as to where the ball lands at the bottom of the field which is divided into several segments numbering from 0 to 35. Like the roulette, the segments are colored red, black and a single green (which is the zero).
These are just the tip of the iceberg. There are still roulette varieties out there which showcase different unique qualities. This post won’t suffice to cover them all. But this gets to show you how diverse this casino game can become. So if you want to add more excitement into your online roulette gaming, all you need to do is to find what floats your boat. You never know what’s in store for you!
Good luck and enjoy!
