Swedish gaming company, Evolution, has increased the appeal of its live roulette product suite after debuting its Gold Bar Roulette title that gives players a chance to win large multiplied payouts.
The new live dealer game “putting players in control” allows players to choose the numbers they feel will be lucky for them and decide for themselves how big their multipliers will be, rather than having multipliers assigned to random numbers.
Gold Bars with multipliers are a key feature in the game and every player can win them throughout their individual session. In order to win these valuable Gold Bars worth 88x, players will need to place a Straight Up bet. Once a player’s betting time is up, the game host reveals the number of Gold bars that can potentially be won in that round – up to 20 per game round.
Each Gold bar can be used on any Straight Up bet in later game rounds. Doing so significantly increases the payout if the player is successful in placing a bet that covers the winning number. Gold Bars won by players remain in their account and are available for use for 180 days.
Once a players has acquired the Gold Bars, they can place them on a single bet spot to apply an 88x multiplier to the selected number. Furthermore, multiple Gold Bars can be stacked on one number or stack them together with chips for an even bigger potential payout. In Gold Bar Roulette, it’s the player who decides!
Another thing that stands out in this new style of roulette is the striking live game environment, which, according to the provider, “resembles the most enticing gold bullion vault imaginable.” The game vault opens in every game round and plays a “key role” in ascertaining how many Gold Bars a player is able to win in that particular round.
Big Payout Potential:
Further explaining the appeal of the latest release via company news, Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer for Evolution, said…
“Having witnessed the amazing popularity of our Lightning Roulette game, we know there is an appetite for unique Roulette games that add extra suspense, entertainment and potential for big payouts. We also know how much players love big multipliers, so for Gold Bar Roulette we thought why not go a step further and give the player more control—why not let the player choose what numbers will pay big – and how big the payout should be?”
The CPO adds that in Gold Bar Roulette, the golden wheel and Gold Bar vault environment is “spellbinding.” And that…
“Players just love it when the number of Gold Bars that can be won is revealed, and then having the freedom to stack high their won Gold Bars on their own lucky number or numbers. The Gold Bars offer the chance of some big, multiplied wins—depending on how players choose to use their Gold Bars it’s possible to reach multiplied payouts as high as 10,000x or even double that!”
