Real Deal Roulette

Published: 22/04/2013

To date, some half a dozen applications have been developed by OpenBet Technologies as part of their Real Deal series of online casino games. Versions include Real Deal Euro Roulette, Baccarat, Euro Blackjack, Money Wheel, Pontoon and Vegas Blackjack. What they all have income is an uncanny realism in depicting the casino floor.

In Real Deal Roulette (also known as Real Deal Euro Roulette), the roulette table takes up the foreground of the screen with a single-zero Roulette wheel spinning right behind it. The casino floor can be seen in the background, with slot machines, a huge crystal chandelier, green plants and lots of patrons walking around, talking in groups or sitting down to play. An occasional waitress will walk by carrying a tray full of drinks over her head, too, looking more like a video clip than an animation.

The audio that accompanies the scene sounds like it was recorded right on a busy casino floor. Above the constant chatter of players talking, music can be heard coming from a lounge, there is applause and whistling, and the themes used for various slots can be picked out quite clearly amid the din.

The star of Real Deal Roulette, however, is the female croupier behind the table on the left side of the screen, who greets the player upon arrival, saying “Welcome to Roulette.” Watch closely as she breathes, moistens her lips, blinks, smiles and announces “Place your bets.” She makes it very difficult to take one’s eyes off her low-cut black dress and ample assets—obviously a distraction that OpenBet intended.

Real Deal Roulette is based upon the European version of the game with 37 numbers, including a single zero. All of the standard bet types are available, from straight-up, single number wagers paying 36-for-1 to the even money outside bets on Black or Red, Eve or Odd, and Small (1~18) or Big (19~36). Other common wagers include the Split on two numbers worth 18-for -1, the Street or Trio of three numbers paying 12-for-1, the Corner marking four adjacent numbers, which pays 9-for-1, and the three Columns worth 2-to-1, as well as the three Dozens—1~12, 13~24 and 25~36—which also pay 2-to-1.

To begin, the player must first select a stake by clicking on a chip with a suitable value upon it from the bottom of the screen. Available denominations on Bet365 are £0.25, £1, £5, £10 or £25, although some casinos offer £1, £5, £10, £25 or £100. When selected, the chip will rise and the edge of the chip will rotate, indicating that it has been selected for betting. To change the chip value, simply click on a different chip.

As the player moves the cursor above the table top, the fields available for wagers brighten slightly. Each click of the mouse will bet one unit on the highlighted number(s) or wagering area. If a mistake is made, the “Undo” button at the bottom of the screen can be used to erase the last bet made. Also, there is a “Clear” button that will remove all bets from the table.

Clicking on the green “Spin” button below the table layout will start the game. The croupier may say “Good Luck” or “Be Lucky” before she turns, reaches across the wheel and sets the ball in motion. Again, the sound of the ball clattering across the face of the Roulette wheel is highly realistic. When it comes to rest, the croupier will call out the winning number and she often adds a random remark, such as “Congratulations” or “That’s incredible” or “Well Done” when a winner comes up.
