When you start a game at American Roulette from the Swedish developer Netent, you are welcomed by a groovy music that will make you want to play. The graphics of this game have been beautifully designed, and it offers a nice green felt and an animated roulette wheel.Before describing how the game works we will take a look at the various features it offers.
First, we will describe what functionality the buttons at the bottom of the screen have.
By clicking the AUTO button, you can select autoplay mode that allows you to program 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 250, 500, 750 or 1,000 consecutive games using the same bet.
By clicking on the wrench symbol you get access to various sound settings, and it is possible to change the music to one of five different tunes, or switch it off completely.
I will now describe the four buttons left of the chips.
The first one showing an i gives information about the possible bets and their payouts.
The second button showing an oval shape displays a new game field and enables you to place bets on the neighbours or other special bets. It is possible to select 0 to 8 neighbours.
The third button showing a graph offers access to various statistics that can help you develop your strategies.
The fourth button marked with a star gives you access to your favourite bets.
Let us now talk about the game itself. When you play, you will first have to select one of the chips of these values: 1, 2, 5, 25, 100 or 500. You can then place one or more on the felt and make your bet.It is possible to bet on a single number by placing your bet on one of the 38 numbered fields from 0 to 36 or the double zero space (00), which awards a payout of 38 to 1.
