Thread: Speed Roulette table

  1. #1
    Playtech's newest roulette table is now open - Speed Roulette

    Speed in name, and speed required in placing bets ... time between spins is reduced at the table compared with other Playtech tables. You only get 10 seconds to place your bets at this table.

    Visually there's nothing different to see at the table, apart from the drabness of the all grey walls (same as first betfair area that was disliked and quickly replaced).

    The lobby representation of table looks promising with flames licking around the wheel ...

    but when you open the table ... the reality is a little more grey and familiar looking

    It seems Playtech finally found a use for the cheerless styling

    I think they should have kept the flat screen and had some speed inspired graphics, rather than another classic Playtech painting which does nothing to convey an impression of speed.

    Although maybe that would be too much excitement what with only having a few seconds to place bets

    Who says Playtech always has its head stuck in the sand?

    Speed Roulette looking more speedy with a makeover since my last visit....

    At Playtech's Speed Roulette it took 5 minutes 11 seconds to make 10 spins in a row, and at Evolution's one (opened today?) it took only 4:30...

    So, now this new Speed Roulette by Evolution will share the 1st place with Hi-Lo in "The Fastest Online Live Game" competition (Hi-Lo also takes around 4:30 for 10 game rounds).

    P.S. The table is not available from "everywhere": William Hill, Unibet, Sportingbet - YES;
    Marathonbet, Royal Panda - NO.

    Dealers (both boys and girls) come from the VIP-zone (blackjacks).

    Evolution's version of speed roulette is not to my liking....too fast combined with camera angle switching.

    Hey Evolution, just a thought.....you could make the game even quicker with the different ball type used on Playtech's Asia roulette that lands faster .



    Oh well, that's another of the newer roulettes I don't want to play for any length of time:

    Evo's Immersive - too gimmicky & unnatural feeling,

    Playtech's Prestige table - too much studio pressure on the dealers to keep talking about anything even if the players aren't responding.

    Curiously, Evolution just yesterday put out a press release announcing the launch of Speed Roulette...few weeks after it was available for play.

    Anyway, couple of excerpts from the release...

    Speed Roulette — available on desktop, tablet and smartphone portrait and landscape — is a super-fast version of Evolution’s leading live dealer Roulette. In this Speed version, game rounds take around 25 seconds from spin to spin
    Speed Roulette game is delivered with a custom designed wheel by TCSJOHNHUXLEY located in its own dedicated studio at Evolution’s Riga studios
    Betting takes place only during the spin, so there’s no ‘dead time’.
    The speed enhancements mean players can enjoy around 50 extra game rounds per hour compared with playing Evolution Live Roulette and Immersive Roulette

    This new (2 weeks old) table is called "Speed Auto Roulette (can be found almost everywhere, except for William Hill). But i've already compared, using the stopwatch: Speed Auto Roulette required 6:08-6:42 (minutes:seconds, few measurements) for making 10 spins in a row, and Auto Roulette LaPartage required 5:10-5:53. So, this new roulette doesn't deserve to be considered as a speed one. In English those who created this roulette would be called "cheaters", and in Russian we usually use another word: "najobsheek". When some game is called "Speed" - it should be at least a little bit faster than another games.

    P.S. I really like the size of my screenshot. Massive thanks for your "wonderful" settings .
