updates portfolio of live stream casino games with 3 new titles.
Playtech, once renowned for its digital
slots content, has kept its design team busy elsewhere in recent
months. There aren’t too many hit games coming off the production
lines for slots fans right now, but new live casino games are
flying onto the shelves. With over 500 classic and video reel games
on the market already, I’ve no doubt it was a calculated decision on
Just this morning, Playtech announced the
release of three new and updated live table games. The leading
iGaming tech firm is celebrating the launch of an all new Live
American Roulette game, the innovative new Live
Spread-Bet Roulette, and the complete makeover of its Live
Hi Lo Club.
Increasing Demand for Live Stream Casino Games
Kevin Kilminster, Playtech’s Head of Innovation
for Live Casino, explains the company’s choice to venture ever deeper
into the live casino realm as a simple matter of economics. Supply
and demand drives ever business. Responsible businesses supply what
the public demands, and those who focus on quality and innovation are
often most successful among them.
“The demand for experience-focused gameplay amongst the modern generation of Live Casino players is stronger than ever. Live Casino is part of the entertainment industry as well as the gambling industry – the presentation and atmosphere we can deliver is what makes players choose Live over standard RNG games. With the addition of American Roulette, Hi-Lo Club and Spread-Bet Roulette to our range, we can offer players an even more immersive and exciting entertainment experience”
Live American Roulette
Based in Playtech’s elegant Grand Royale casino
room, the new American Roulette Live table is what the maker’s call a
“high-end roulette variant” that complements their existing
portfolio of premium live table games.
In my opinion, the “high-end” label works
only to the advantage of Playtech’s casino licensees. As any educated
gambler knows, American Roulette features a double-zero, hence
doubling the traditional 2.7% house edge in single-zero games
(European, French) to 5.26%. Nice try Playtech, but we’ll pass on
Live Spread-Bet Roulette
Now this is truly an innovation in roulette
gambling. The base game is played on a standard European Roulette
wheel. However, inside that wheel is another smaller, golden-numbered
wheel. It contains all the same numbers, 0 thru 36, in the same order
of seemingly-randomized appearance, but it spins in the opposite
direction of the base wheel. When the ball lands, the numbers each
wheel land on determine the base game and spread-bet winners.
With the optional spread-bet, punters are given
the chance to bet on the resulting sum of the two winning numbers.
For instance, if the base wheel lands on 24, and the inner golden
wheel on 3, the total is 25. Therefore a bet on the 19-33 spread
Spread bets and their corresponding payouts are
0 – 1
2 – 11
12 – 18
19 – 33
34 – 54
55 – 67
68 – 72
Live Hi Lo Club
This one is a reinvention of Playtech’s original Hi Lo Live casino tables, relaunching as Hi Lo Club. The design crew focused primarily on enhancements to the user experience – what they call UX – as well as an update to the room to depict a 1980’s Miami theme, complete with neon tracings and a nostalgic musical score.
Altogether, Playtech’s newest live stream casino game packs an immersive retro punch with fast-paced card gaming action, ideal for desktop and mobile gambling.
