Most online gambling buffs associate the name of supplier Betsoft with 3D slots but it appears the developers’ passion for crisp, life-like graphics extends to table games as well. Zoom Roulette saw the light of day in May 2013 but does not show any significant signs of aging. The game is not called Zoom Roulette without a valid reason. Here you have an over-sized wheel and a panel that zooms in on the winning pocket after the tiny white ball decides on the outcome.
Interface and Bet Types
The biggest advantage Zoom Roulette has to offer lies in the fact it plays on a European-style wheel instead of following the American model with the two zero pockets and double the house edge. With that said, the crisp graphics and the clever design further improve the entertainment value of this Betsoft product.
In Zoom Roulette, you are presented with a user-friendly interface that makes placing a wager a simple and painless process. Speaking of bets, here you can size your wagers with chip denominations ranging from $1 to $250, with upper bet limit per coup of $500.
While we are on the subject of bets, Zoom Roulette provides players with a choice from the usual outside and insides wagers that pay at their traditional payout rates. The maximum you can win with a single-number wager is 35x your original stake. Players who get bored with the standard wagers can easily switch to racetrack betting. Call bets are placed in the oval space over the main betting layout.
The interface of the game is cleverly designed. Despite the numerous features this version boasts, its main screen does not look overcrowded. Most of the features remain hidden from view until you click on their corresponding button to make them appear on the screen.
Distinctive Traits and Features
If you are wondering what distinguishes this version of roulette from other single-zero varieties, the answer pretty much lies in the name of the game itself. There is a massive spinning 3D wheel that occupies most of the screen space. When you make a bet and press the Spin button, an oversized panel pops up on the screen to give you a closer look of the pocket the ball has landed on.
Here you also have a help section with a detailed overview of the game’s rules alongside the payouts on winning bets and tips on how to use the gaming controls. When you hit the History button above the racetrack, the history panel slides down to reveal the results of the last ten coups or so.
All in all, this Betsoft offering ticks all the boxes that make for a great online roulette experience. The zoom-in panel gives players an instant glance at the winning result while the pre-configured templates for the supported wagers make placing a call bet a piece of cake.
