Instant Roulette Live was presented at ICE 2020 by Evolution Gaming, alongside 11 other products scheduled for release the same year. This is a summer release and it went live paired with Power Blackjack. Instant Roulette is marketed as the world’s fastest live roulette game because its rounds are incredibly fast and all the usual waiting times are reduced to a minimum, eliminated even in certain situations.
The game is played on a set of 12 separate automatic roulette wheels which are presented in a well-decorated room that gives out an impression of privacy and elegance. Each wheel is numbered and they are all spinning without pause, if we do not count the moment of a ball landing into a socket at round’s end. What is the idea of such a game? Multi-wheel roulette has been done before, but this time the idea is to take the player to the wheel that is closest to the ball dropping in order to reduce waiting time and getting the results as quickly as possible.
Don’t let all those roulette wheels spinning confuse you. You will be playing a standard European roulette game with a single zero and all the well-known rules. When you enter the lobby, you will be expected to make a bet and then hit the Play Now button – the game will take you to the wheel that is the closest to end the round with a ball landing in one of the pockets. However, the time for placing bets is unlimited and you will have the liberty to play at your own pace. The round officially starts when you hit the Play Now button.
As soon as the results are presented, you can hit Rebet and achieve the greatest speed by moving on to the next round right away. If you come to see one of the wheels as your lucky “wheel”, you may want to wait for it to be displayed as the next wheel in focus and then place your bets strategically. Instant Roulette Live spends 15 – 18 seconds per game. The game delivers a long-term optimal return rate of 97.30% and comes with a standard betting layout and racetrack.
Instant Roulette Live is a result of Evolution’s attempts to meet the players’ need for near-instant results. With 12 individual and synchronised auto roulette wheels, this is pretty much what you get – speedy results and no time is wasted. This means you get more time for new bets and you get increases dynamics overall. The downsides of the Instant Roulette are the absence of dealers/hosts and any interesting side bets. Still, this game aims to attract a specific audience and will likely succeed.
