Spin A Win

Published: 29/01/2013

Anyone who enjoys the game of roulette should most definitely look into the arcade game called “Spin A Win,” developed by software maker Playtech for online casinos like Bet365. Compared to the standard “small wheel” table game, it features fewer numbers, more betting options, no “banker numbers” (zero or double zero) and the same great action spin after spin.

The centrepiece of the Spin A Win display is its game wheel, featuring multicoloured sections and an arcade-style clacker that points to the winning number. In total there are exactly two dozen numbers equally spaced around the perimeter of the wheel. They are divided into five colour-coded sections: 1~7 for Red, 8~13 for Green, 14~18 for Blue, 19~22 for Yellow and 23~24 for Orange.

Inside the wheel are four stationary betting areas surrounding a hub that shows the most recent winning number and its colour. To the Left is “Odd” and to the right is “Even.” Wagers placed here pay out at odds of 1.9X, which is slightly below true odds of 2X and thus accounts for a House margin of 5%. At the Top is the betting area for “Higher” and at the bottom is the one for “Lower.” These are used for wagering whether the next spin will produce an outcome higher or lower than the last one, and the odds change with each spin according to how many possible winning combinations exist.

Making wagers on any of the four central betting areas is accomplished by clicking on the desired one. Each click increases the amount wagered, starting at €0.10 and reaching a maximum at €50. The numbers on the wheel corresponding to the selection will change in colour from black to white, thus making it easy to identify potential winners as the wheel spins.

Two useful controls appear as orange buttons below the wheel. The “Clear Last Bet” one can be used to correct the most recent wagering selection, while clicking on the “Clear All Bets” button will erase all wagered amounts.

In addition to the wagers that can be made inside the wheel, there are also numerous betting options to its left and right. At the upper right of the display is a grid of three columns showing eight numbers each, where bets can be made on the individual numbers. These pay out at 23.4X for successful wagers of €0.10 to €4.00. At the lower left, bets can be made of ranges of numbers from 1~8, 9~16 or 17~24, paying 2.9X for successful wagers of €0.10 to €25.

At the upper right side of the display are the areas for betting on the five colours and on combinations such as Red-Blue, Red-Green, Green-Yellow, Blue-Orange and Yellow-Orange. Wagers can be made from €0.10 to €5.00 on individual colours and up to €25 or €50 on combinations with varying odds. And to the lower right is a section for wagering on the “Last Digit” of the winning number being 1, 2, 3 or 4. This bet pays 7.8X when successful for wagers from €0.10 to €10.00.

As wagers are made on the various outcomes, the sum of all bets is calculated and displayed in the “Total Bet” counter in the display’s right corner. As soon as all bets have been placed, the game is initiated by clicking on the green button marked “Spin!” directly below the wheel. After the wheel comes to a halt, the winning number displays in the hub, along with a message box showing the amount won or “Try Again.” It then becomes possible to “Rebet” the previous wagers or clear them for new bets.
