Its official – Pragmatic Play Mega Roulette is just 2 weeks away! Since before the New Year rolled over, it has been business as usual for Pragmatic Play over in its video slot corner with new title releases, huge pay-outs, and the announcement of a 40-week drop and wins promotion. However, the live casino game release side of things was quiet—that is until now!
The Mega Roulette title is now ready for launch with the official date being 24 February. This is the second ‘game show’ title to join the Pragmatic Play Live brand’s fast-growing live dealer game collection joining the successful Mega Wheel title released back in November last year.
What We Know About Pragmatic Play Live Mega Roulette!
Pragmatic Play Live favours TCS John Huxley roulette wheel with the single-zero. Therefore, we can expect a European Roulette layout for starters. This gives the game a house edge of 2.70% and a theoretical RTP of 97.3% as opposed to the American Roulette version of roulette that almost doubles the house edge to 5.26% and a 94.74% theoretical RTP—so far so good!
The Mega Roulette game will have a dedicated studio and croupier. As this new live roulette title is very similar to Evolution’s Lightning roulette, the croupier will in fact be a game host as the roulette wheel will run on auto, effectively making this a live auto-roulette title with multipliers.
Multipliers and Mega Bet Features
This version of roulette will come with plenty of thrilling multipliers and ‘Mega Bets’. Innovative features include 5 multiplier values added to 5 different number at random after players place their bets. Multipliers will only pay out if players have a straight-up bet placed on the number the roulette wheel produces.
Random multipliers are worth up 500x the bet, and it will be interesting to see exactly what the entrance fees are for this multiplier privilege. Players can also place ‘Mega Bets’ which are there to make it easier for players to land multipliers!
It is very much Pragmatic Play Live’s version of Lightning Roulette, which also dishes out multipliers of up to 500x on 1 to 5 numbers very coup. The next interesting point is how Pragmatic Play will fund multiplier payments. Originally Evolution reduced the pay-out values of the straight-up bets from 35 to 1 to 29 to 1 but this was not popular and so Evolution now deducts 20% from play bets every coup, and we expect that Pragmatic Play live will do something very similar.
