Evolution has produced 8 different playing versions of live roulette.

Whether you like fast games, playing with studio dealers or on tables streamed from land based casinos, there’s something for everyone.

It’s Evolution Gaming’s most popular live casino game by a mile. You only have to look at players numbers at each table in the Roulette lobby to see what I mean.

Rather surprisingly Automatic Roulette gets the most players.  I’ll explain later why I think that is.

Every game is essentially the same, the differences come with how the game is presented and some of the rules available on certain tables.

I’ve produced this comprehensive review to explain the different versions and how they compare with each other.

Types of Evolution Roulette

Playing Interface

There’s 3 different screen layouts to choose from. Classic view is normally displayed if your connection speed is low.

Multi Camera View

Evolution Roulette

The Multi Camera view takes its lead from Immersive Roulette.

Multiple HD camera views are automatically switched during the game round to give you the best view of the table and wheel.

Even the most experienced dealer has fun trying to catch the right camera to look into.

3D View

The 3D View gives a more traditional view of the table with the betting grids and racetrack permanently displayed on the table.

The cameras are static and you’ll be lucky if the dealer makes eye contact with you.

Classic View

The Classic view is primarily used when connection speeds are low as the interface uses less video bandwidth.

However, the great thing about this interface is all the playing options and chat are permanently displayed without being over laid on the wheel.

I use this when I want to chat with the dealer and see what other people are saying as I play.

 

Placing Bets

Bets can be placed individually on the main betting grid and by using the racetrack. With this you’re able to bet on one number and include up to 9 neighbours.

Special Bets & Statistics

On the special bets interface you can make complete number bets, Finale En Plein and Finales En Cheval.

Previous results statistics are available up to the last 500 spins, with information on number dispersion across the wheel and how often the different sectors are being hit.

You can use the Statistics interface to place bets.

The Save favourite bets function is a useful tool if you have a favourite layout.

You’re able to reuse that layout on any table at the same casino.

Mobile Evolution Roulette

Mobile players are well taken care of. The playing interface has been developed in HTML5 so it can adapt to any device type.

However I’ve experienced intermittent results with some of the older Android devices I’ve been using to test with.

It would seem some of them don’t like switching between Landscape and Portrait modes. So watch out for that.  

As a general rule you’ll also see slight differences between the playing interface on Tablet and Mobile devices. That’s primarily to do with optimisation for the different screen sizes.

 

Tablet Interface

evolution roulette mobile

Evolution Roulette can be played with the tablet in horizontal or vertical orientation with the choice of two game modes: Video Mode and Auto Zoom Mode.

Video Mode – this is the default mode. You tap the Play button and the video stream starts. In this mode you see live video of the wheel and dealer is in a small area in the top half of the screen.

Auto Zoom Mode – enlarges the video automatically to full screen during the wheel spin, then minimizes the video when the ball has landed in the pocket in 3D or Classic View.

You also have the option to choose between Classic and Multi Camera views of the table. 

 

Smartphone Interface

The Smartphone interface is a bit funkier and Evolution has done a pretty good job of squeezing in all the functionality on such a small device.

You can view the table in both Portrait and Landscape modes. 

The betting grid takes up the whole screen.

For the video you can select between full screen mode and a smaller mode which floats the video over the betting grid. You can move it around with your finger, or get rid of it completely.

This works well in either screen orientations.

Standard European Live Roulette

Evolution Live Roulette

Play at

This is Evolution live roulette in its native form. It’s European Roulette that can be played in three viewing modes; Classic, 3D and Multi Camera.

You might hear it referred to as Immersive Lite and that’s a throw back to when the multi camera version was first released during 2015.

The viewing modes are configurable by the casinos, so you’ll find some haven’t taken either the 3D or Multi Camera view. I’m not certain why!

The live dealer is seated at a real table, although size wise it’s smaller than a normal land based table.

Betting time is around 17 seconds with a whole game round taking about 45 seconds.

American Roulette

Evolution American Roulette

Play at

American Roulette is the latest addition to Evolution’s Live Roulette stable.

This version is played with two zeros on the wheel, a single zero and double zero. The affect of this is to reduce the RTP to 94.74%.

If you had to choose a game of roulette this would not be it. The RTP on European Roulette is far superior at 97.3%.

There are players that like playing this version and surprisingly you can find in in European land based casinos as well as on the strip in Las Vegas. 

The live dealer stands beside the table, rather than being seated.

The table also has it’s own studio area with American type branding to give it a more authentic feel.

Betting time is around 17 seconds with a whole game round taking about 45 seconds.

Speed Roulette

Evolution Speed Roulette

Evolution developed Speed Roulette to give players a faster playing experience. It’s the fastest game of roulette you’ll find online.

Betting time is 10 seconds while the whole game takes 25 seconds.

There is no full or half table as with other versions. The dealer sits at a wheel and spins the ball from there, very similar to Immersive Roulette.

Immersive Roulette

Evolution Immersive Roulette

Play at

Immersive Roulette was a ground breaking concept when it was first released and it wasn’t long before copy cats appeared.

What’s different was the introduction of multi HD cameras giving different views of the tables and wheel during game play.

Slow motion replays were added to give Immersive roulette its special feel.

Even now, the Immersive wheel is kept in it’s own dedicated area within the Riga Studio.

There is no table, the dealer sits at the wheel and makes the spins. Previous results are displayed on screen and also on a BillBoard to the side of the dealer. Very similar to the ones you see in land based casinos.

The roulette dealer is normally very chatty and because the table is in it’s own area it’s much easier to hear what they are saying. It’s probably the table that has the most interaction with players.

Game rounds take about 48 seconds with a betting time of around 25 seconds.

Double Ball Roulette

Evolution Double Ball Roulette

Play at

Double Ball Roulette is exclusive to Evolution Roulette. Two balls are fired into the wheel using a firing mechanism developed by Evolution#s technicians.

There is a 1300:1 Payout for both balls landing the the same number.

It happens more often than you would believe. But you’ve got to pick the right number first! 

Game rounds take about 40 seconds with a betting time of approx 18 seconds.

It’s another version that only has a roulette wheel.

The theoretical payout for inside bets is 94.67%-97.22% & Outside bets is 94.67%-97.30% .

The theoretical payout for a Double Ball Jackpot is 95.03%.

Dual Play Roulette

Play at

Dual Play Roulette is Evolution’s land based streamed solution.

They fit a camera rig around a table in a land based casino, connect up some technology to read the results of the roulette wheel and bingo, they can stream the table in real time online.

An unlimited number of online players can play alongside land based players.

Evolution are not the first to do this, but they were the first to stream HD quality pictures.

All tables are European Roulette and come from very well known casino brands across Europe, with the UK and London having the lions share of tables.

Currently you can play at the tables from The Dragonara Casino in Malta, The Grosvenor Casino in London, Genting Casino in Birmingham, The Hippodrome Casino in London, The Ritz in London and the Grand Casino in Bucharest.

Portomaso, Ezugi and Authentic Gaming all have similar roulette products, with the Authentic solution probably pipping Evolution on the options in their playing interface.

Automatic Roulette

Play at

Automatic Roulette isn’t a strange concept.

If you’ve played in a land based casino you’ll see lots of people playing the Auto Roulette wheels when the regular tables are too busy to get near. 

In Automatic Roulette a real wheel is housed in sealed case. The wheel is controlled using compressed air. A vacuum sucks the ball from the wheel panda puff of air is used to fire it around the edge, while the wheel is spun in the opposite direction.

Evolution provides 3 different versions. Depending on where you play you’ll see them labelled as Automatic or Slingshot roulette.

  • Auto Roulette – normally has a low minimum bet.
  • VIP Auto Roulette – the minimum bet is normally double the Auto Roulette minimum.
  • Auto Roulette La Partage – has a French layout and the La Partage Rule is in operation.

All the games run at about the same speed as the studio live roulette, with a betting time of 17 seconds and a game round taking 45 seconds.

French Roulette

Evolution French Gold Roulette

Play at

Live Roulette wouldn’t be faithful to it’s roots without French Live Roulette.

Evolution has produced a French Layout table skin with some extra software to handle the La Partage rule that’s in operation on the table.

This is where you get half your stake back if the ball lands in Zero on any even money bets you have placed.

They haven’t include En Prison, which is something you’ll find at the Authentic Gaming Superieur Table streamed from the St Vincent Casino.

In all other aspects the game is the same as regular Evolution Live Roulette.

Dedicated Tables

Dedicated Tables are created specifically for individual casino Brands.

They are fully branded and normally use the same set of dealers. The roulette tables are often located in specific dedicated studio areas for a casino brand.

Some house just a couple of tables, while others have dozens.

These tables are only for use by the casinos own players only, so the casino is more likely to and able to run on table promotions. Everything is on brand to make the playing experience more immersive for players.

Given the choice, I’d always play on one of the branded tables.

Evolution Roulette Summary

Evolution has long been the leader when it comes to developing live dealer Roulette games.

While there were not the first to implement Land Based Streaming, their Dual Play Roulette was the first to give near studio quality images with a standard playing interface.

This product gives a new definition to live roulette that is seeing it’s competitors now further developing the concept.

No one can touch Evolution Speed Roulette if you want a quick game. It’s the fastest there is. While it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, it serves a section of the player community very well.

A game can be made by the presenter.

I generally find and this is a good rule of thumb, if you want a good dealer, who’s engaged with the players and will chat more, play at one of the dedicated tables.

The presenters on these tables tend to be the more experienced and confident dealers, and in terms of the internal pecking order at Evolution these are the tables that the dealers aspire to be on.

I can’t really criticise Evolution Roulette. 

It’s a good slick product that does it’s job very well and there is a game for every type of player.
