The more multipliers frenzy continues and its latest offering is x1000 Quantum Roulette from Playtech.
The name gives away the crux of it. Live roulette with random multipliers thrown in (this is what Playtech’s Quantum series is all about). The top multiplier is a juicy 1000x.
What the name doesn’t tell you, is that this game takes place using an American Roulette table and wheel. American Roulette tables are usually best avoided due to that pesky double zero and resulting return to player considerations. x1000 Quantum Roulette comes with a nice surprise in that regard, but more on that later.
How to play x1000 Quantum Roulette
Simple answer…as you would any other live roulette table. Choose your bets, wait for the little white ball to find its pocket and see if your number came up.
After bets close, a bunch of numbers are chosen to which random payout multipliers are applied. As usual, the announcement of the numbers, and the assigned multipliers comes with a bit of razzle dazzle.
Anywhere between 1 and 5 numbers will be selected. The below game round yielded a healthy 5 selected numbers.
To each of those numbers multipliers of either 50x, 100x, 150x, 200x, 250x, 300x, 400x, 500x or 1000x are applied. Playtech very transparently disclose in the house rules the probability of each of these multipliers popping up each round – 30% chance of seeing a 50x, down to 1.48% chance of seeing a 1000x.
They become the new payout for a Straight Up bet win on that number.
Straight Up bets only multiplied
This is worth emphasising. The multipliers have no impact on any other bets. If number 32 has a 500x applied to it, and thats where the ball lands, and you have a bet on Red, your payout is the regular old even money.
x1000 Roulette Payout table
Other than Straight Up bets, payouts replicate those of a regular American Roulette game.
The Straight Up bet payouts varies to a maximum of 1000x, or 999:1. In the absence of a multiplier, you’ll get 29:1 for a Straight Up win. This is less than the regular 35:1 – a reduction that funds the multipliers while preserving the house edge.
Play a regular American Roulette table and you’re facing a 5.26% house edge, or 94.74% return to player (RTP).
You’ll face the same returns on the x1000 Quantum table for all bets other than Straight Up (as the same payout applies for these bets).
But if you stick to Straight Up bets your returns are actually elevated (to the same RTP as regular European Roulette actually).
Usually, the more a bet is ‘tricked up’ with the possibility of massive (but elusive) payouts, the lower your returns will be. Not so with this game. Well played Playtech.
