A New Roulette Experience
When players think of new games, they almost always think of slots. The fact of the matter is that online slots make up the vast majority of what’s available in terms of new online casino titles. However, Microgaming is mixing things up a bit with their partnership with Switch Studios:
The latest release on the Microgaming Quickfire platform is a roulette game, which is a part of a new generation of table games.
Roulette is generally considered to be the most popular table game overall online in terms of the total number of bets placed in Western countries, particularly among non-card titles. That makes it a smart choice to be picked first in the general sense, but it also helps to set the tone for everything that will come later in the series by offering a baseline for what to expect.
What’s New About This Game
With a title like roulette, it’s hard to get too far outside of the box because of how narrowly defined the rules of the game are. Other than really breaking away from the fundamentals of how it’s played, you’re not going to reinvent the wheel (no pun intended) when it comes to this game.
However, you can change the presentation, and that’s exactly what’s been done here. The Gold Series of table games by Microgaming has always set a high standard for the industry in the general sense, and this is improving on those games, which were already considered by many to be the best that were widely available.
The list of improvements includes the following:
- The graphics are 3-D in nature and offer players a more cohesive experience by having all of the elements of the game together in a way that’s easy to view.
- A single-zero version of the game is used here, and they skipped out on offering a double-zero version that most players avoid anyway because it’s essentially the same game with a worse payout rate.
- There are more options for adjusting the speed of the game so that you can make it fit your own personal preferences.
- A lot of attention was paid to making the ball and wheel act more life-like with better physics calculations for the visual presentation.
While they aren’t reinventing the game of roulette, they are presenting it in a way that players have never seen before, and that’s enough to be extremely exciting.
Microgaming Switching Things Up
Last year, Microgaming started making exclusive content distribution deals with a number of smaller development houses. This included Switch Studios, and what it does for them is that it provides them with a steady stream of exclusive content that players can’t get anywhere else. This helps them to be more competitive in a software marketplace where many of their software partners were also making deals with other platforms.
The idea here is that more exclusive content will give players more reasons to check out the casinos that offer their software, and improving their popularity along these lines is exactly the kind of thing that they’re going for.
Microgaming has been around since the mid-1990s, and they produced the software that operated the world’s first online casino. They have been at the top of the pile of software and platform providers ever since, and it goes to show that they know how to adapt to trends and what’s new in the industry. We see it now with the new roulette game as well.
