NetEnt Live Roulette
NetEnt’s signature on an online casino game is a certain proof of a top quality product no matter if it uses a Random Number Generator or physical equipment associated with land-based casinos.
The company that boasts numerous universally popular slots has proven to be equally successful with live dealer games, largely due to the fact that NetEnt gives as much attention to studio design, user interface and training of its dealers.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and now it’s your turn to test some of the best Live Roulette games out there.
Generic NetEnt Live Roulette Tables
NetEnt provides several Live Roulette tables with wide limits which usually start at €0.25 and go as high as €200,000. Having joined one, you can click on „i“ button to view minimum/maximum limits and payouts for each bet type.
Though players may not be able to see other tables, background noise is sufficiently successful in creating the ambiance of a real casino floor.
A simple game interface allows players to adapt the environment to their taste. One can use discreet buttons in the upper right corner to join Live Chat, view their own gaming history, read game rules and adjust settings.
The latter let you manipulate sounds and set video quality to low, medium or high (or choose Auto to let the software decide what works best with your particular device/internet speed).
NetEnt has made it possible to place Inside and Outside bets via the digital betting board and use racetrack to wager on Jeu Zero, Tiers, Orphelins and Voisins.
The Favourite bets feature allows you to save any bet configuration and use it over and over again with a single click. If unsure what to bet on, explore the Statistics panel which displays recent outcomes including Hot and Cold numbers as well as easy-to-read charts for Outside bets.
If you wish to have more win opportunities in the same amount of time, launch NetEnt’s Rapid Roulette. The game plays by European rules and apparently allows players to bet on up to 65 games per hour.
Betting time is shorter than in the regular variant so this may not be an ideal option for beginners, but seasoned Roulette fans won’t find it difficult to place their chips before „no more bets“ message comes up.
Rapid Roulette uses the same interface as NetEnt’s standard game which means you can also save your favourite wagers and reapply them in two seconds.
NetEnt’s Automatic Roulette is a perfect choice for those of you that find live dealers distracting but still want the outcome to depend on a physical ball rather than a computer-generated one.
Joining one of the Automatic Roulette tables allows players to enjoy a live casino experience and at the same time fully concentrate on the game itself. The only thing they’ll hear is the sound made by the fully automated wheel.
One will still benefit from an array of in-game options allowing them to customize their gaming experience as well as the Live Chat feature; though there’s no dealer to talk to, you can communicate with other players.
Live Beyond Live Roulette
NetEnt’s Live Beyond Live tries to enhance the illusion of playing at a physical casino rather than online.
There’s no standard lobby with the list of tables to pick from; instead, players are taken to a beautifully designed virtual casino floor where they’ll see images of others virtual visitors placing bets in Live Roulette and Live Blackjack.
NetEnt has positioned its casino replica at one of the upper floors of a tall building with a stunning view of a virtual city, ensuring you have a full view of other tables while placing bets – just like in a land-based casino.
The game itself is the same as standard Live Roulette but there’s one major benefit: instead of having to go to the lobby to select another table, one can use Minimap to see all available ones and click on the table of their choice to instantly join the game; it’s kind of like walking from one table to another in a physical casino.
Tables Streamed From Brick & Mortar Casinos
When streaming from land-based casinos, it’s far more difficult to ensure high-quality video and audio; you may have already noticed the difference with developers that broadcast both from their fully controlled studios and brick-and-mortar gambling venues.
The entire NetEnt range demonstrates the team’s commitment to launch only top-quality products and that’s probably why the company’s live dealers only operate from NetEnt’s studios in Malta.
Live Roulette Game Types
All NetEnt tables we’ve seen play European Roulette with a single zero wheel and have the standard RTP of 97.30%. However, we believe La Partage rule to be available as an optional extra so may potentially come across an online casino that has chosen to include it.
How Does NetEnt Compare With Other Suppliers?
In terms of the broadcasting quality, NetEnt is at the very top together with the segment leader, Evolution Gaming. It doesn’t seem to use as many cameras nor does it offer players a choice of views, but we don’t find that to be a major disadvantage as video is always crystal clear and perfectly synchronized with audio. The same applies to mobile games that can be played in both landscape and portrait mode.
Players that tend to bet on even-money outcomes might miss the French variant (though it may be possible to find a casino which applies La Partage rule) but NetEnt definitely won’t be able to please those few that, for reasons unknown, like to play American Roulette. Again, not a big disadvantage.
Uncluttered, well-designed interface is easy to use and provides a good choice of options, betting limits are wide enough to please everybody, and dealers professional and outgoing.
In short, NetEnt’s Live Roulette is one of the best options available to fans of the standard game free of dispensable extras.
