1x2gaming introduces a new way to play roulette with the launch of Roulette Diamond. The innovative game replaces the old numbered wheel with a new diamond-shaped betting area wherein players can roll several balls at the same time.
Kevin Reid, CCO of 1×2 Network, said:
“With Roulette Diamond, we have taken a classic table game and given it some added glamour. The innovative 40-number betting board we have developed is an industry first and will appeal to traditional players as well as those looking for a slots/table games hybrid. We have already had significant interest from a number of tier one operators and look forward to launching Roulette Diamond to players shortly.”
Innovative Diamond Betting Area
The defining feature of Roulette Diamond is the betting area that has a mix of red and black numbers as well as the number zero at the top. Surrounding the 41 numbers are squares with arrows and diamond icons along with the familiar red and black squares.
Betting on Roulette Diamond is almost the same with the standard version of roulette. Some bets in Roulette Diamond, however, have higher payout rates than in traditional roulette. This is because of the unusual diamond shape and the 41 numbers on the betting area. The following are some of the wagers of Roulette Diamond:
- Straight (1 number) – 39 to 1
- Horizontal (2 numbers) – 19 to 1
- Corner (4 numbers) – 9 to 1
- Cove (3 numbers and zero square) – 9 to 1
- Odd/Even (20 numbers) – 1 to 1
- Red/Black (20 numbers) – 1 to 1
- Top Half (20 numbers) – 1 to 1
- Bottom Half (20 numbers) – 1 to 1
- Column (2 numbers) – 19 to 1
- Column (8 numbers) – 4 to 1
When bets are placed, players can roll the ball by clicking the Play button. The digital ball will roll across the Inside Bet field and stop on one square to determine the winning number.
Why Play Roulette Diamond over Traditional Roulette
One of the reasons to play Roulette Diamond is the high payout or return to player (RTP) rate because of the 41 numbers used in the game. In European roulette, for example, straight bets only pay 35 to 1 while Roulette Diamond pays 39 to 1 for the wager. Even a split or bets for two numbers in regular roulette only pay 17 to 1 while 1x2gaming’s Roulette Diamond pays 19 to 1.
Another reason players will enjoy Roulette Diamond is the use of a digitized ball that rolls around the numbers instead of a roulette wheel. This allows players to activate multiple balls in the betting area at the same time.
Roulette Diamond will soon be available in almost every 1x2gaming-partnered casino. In addition, The HTML5 format of the game allows players to enjoy Roulette Diamond on desktop computers and mobile devices.
