- Win up to 500/1 odds with this World Cup 2018 themed bookies roulette game
- Chip values start from 10p, with spins from £1 per game and a maximum prize per spin of £500
- Five multiplier positions, inter-spaced between 100 red and black roulette numbers
Champions Roulette is a World Cup 2018 themed roulette game for the fixed odds betting terminals in Coral and Ladbrokes betting shops, with base game odds of 100 to 1, and bonus Champions Roulette odds of up to 500 to 1.
Champions Roulette has been released to coincide with the World Cup, but it’s basically a newer version of SG Gaming’s popular FOBT roulette game Key Bet 500.
As the odds are high, the chip values can start low, and are offered from 10p each. These can be placed on any straight-up number for 100 to 1 odds, with splits, corners and streets odds divided accordingly. As the maximum prize per game is £500 on the bookies betting terminals, the maximum limits on the numbers reflect the potential pay-back. A little under £5 being the maximum straight-up bet on any number, and £1 being the maximum bet on any Champions Roulette Cup position to reflect the possibility of hitting a £500 win.
Champions Roulette Game Play
The large oval roulette wheel encloses a football pitch, with two goals either side and a large multiplier wheel in its centre. At the start of every spin, the multiplier wheel will rotate and stop on a value of up to x500, this is regardless of whether you have placed a bet on any Champions Roulette Cup positions.
The main roulette wheel itself is divided into five sections of twenty numbers each, inter-spaced with a World Cup trophy of one of five colours; pink, blue, green, yellow and orange. The numbers range from 1 up to 100, the five trophy’s act as zeros, but the trophy odds can pay up to 500/1.
Once you have inserted your required credit, you can touch any number on the betting table to place your bets. Although the minimum cost per spin is £1, the minimum chip values are 10p, so you can cover a fair few numbers with a low bet. The betting table is displayed as a 10×10 grid, with the numbers laid out in alternating colours of red and black. There are multiple betting options, each of which has varying odds:
- Straight-up: 100/1
- Split: 49/1
- Corner: 24/1
- Row: 9/1
- Split Row: 4/1
- Red and Black: 1/1
- Odd and Even: 1/1
- Champions Roulette Cup: Up to 500/1
Most people will be playing this fixed odds betting terminal game for the Champions Roulette Cup trophy positions, and although they can award up to 500/1, the multiplier can also pay less than the standard 100/1 that you would get from a straight-up number. The potential of winning £500 for a £1 stake is appealing for a lot of players, so its appeal will still be high.
As the betting table is so large, Champions Roulette has several ‘short-cut’ betting options to make placing your chips slightly easier:
Neighbours: This is the most helpful, and surprisingly isn’t on Inspired Gaming’s version of 100/1 Roulette in William Hill or Betfred. Place your chips on your chosen number, and two neighbours either side will also receive a chip for every time it is pressed, up to the maximum per position.
Lucky Number: Choose a number on the table, a 20p chip will be placed on it with 10p chips placed on the surrounding positions up to a total bet of £1.
Crossfire: This bet costs £2 and will place 20p on the selected number and 10p chips on the corresponding rows and columns.
Corner to Corner: This one costs £4 and will cover all numbers running from corner to corner with 20p chips.
Scatter: Choose your number with this option and chips will be randomly scattered around and on the number for a total bet of £5.
Lucky Dip: This option simply selects randomly chosen numbers for you. It costs up to £10, however if your balance is less than this, it will use your remaining balance.
Champions Roulette is an enjoyable addition to the selection of roulette and bonus roulette games on the bookies fixed odds betting terminals. We are seeing more high odds roulette games being released due to the impending £2 maximum stake, which is forecast to come into effect within the next 12 months of this article being written.
High odds bonus roulette is available online at Coral casino.
