Mega Roulette is Pragmatic Play’s version of Roulette with multipliers, which is a very hot niche with lots of exciting titles by Evolution, Playtech and other developers.
Mega Roulette randomly assigned multipliers to straight-up numbers ranging from 50x to 500x.
Players have a renewed interest in stats trackers for this roulette game precisely because they are trying to predict when the next largest multiplier will hit.
Due to the belief that a large multiplier is ‘due’ when it hasn’t landed in a while, players will place progressively larger bets, waiting for the multiplier.
In this article, I’ll explore this topic in more detail and explain if this is a viable strategy or not.
You probably know the rules of Mega Roulette since you landed on this page about stats trackers, but I’ll still give a quick overview of the game.
Mega Roulette is a regular game of European Roulette that uses an auto wheel. Each spin starts from the last winning number and alternates directions after each spin.
A Random Number Generator selects the multiplier values, and the numbers they apply after the betting has closed.
Up to five straight-up numbers will receive multipliers, ranging in value from 50x to 500x.
The only other change is a reduction in Straight-up payouts, from 35:1 to 29:1
That’s it. Mega Roulette is just a regular game of Roulette with a twist that can let you win a 500x multiplier on your straight-up bet if you’re lucky.
If you win, you’ll only be paid the multiplier value on your stake.
Interestingly, Mega Roulette has a standard RTP for a European Roulette of 97.30% – based on the Even Money Bets.
As multipliers only apply to Straight-Up numbers, your RTP is 96.50%.
In playing the straight-up numbers, you’re accepting a lower RTP than even money bets, but you have the chance to win big with the multipliers.
No data is available in the playing interface to show how often the 500x multiplier hits, so to get an idea about this, you’d need to look at a stats tracker.
Since up to five straight-up numbers can receive multipliers in each game round, the chance for each number to receive a multiplier is 13.51% at best.
That is, if five multipliers land in that game round, which is rare.
It is next to impossible to use any stats tracker to predict the outcome of the next spin. Even if you do get lucky, it’s only luck. It’s impossible to predict a single outcome of an independent event based on past events.
The RNG decides when, how many and how big the multipliers will be on straight-up numbers.
Using results trackers, we can get a general idea of how often multipliers are assigned, how big they are, and how often the 500x multiplier is selected.
Regardless of your strategy, you will conclude that to win with a multiplier; you will need to place bets that cover a large section of the wheel.
Using the information in a stats tracker, you should be able to work out the appropriate percentage of your total bankroll to bet on one spin.
If the 500x win multiplier is expected to land once every 500 spins, your maximum bet shouldn’t be more than 1/500 of your bankroll.
The simple answer is no. There is no way of knowing when the multipliers will hit or how large they will be.
A Random Number Generator controls the use of the multipliers. The RNG decides how many, the value and the numbers where they should be assigned. There is also no algorithm monitoring the results to determine what should happen next. It’s all random.
The gambler’s fallacy of thinking an event should occur because it hasn’t happened in a while is true of Mega Roulette. Knowing when a large win multiplier is ‘due’ is impossible. A 500x multiplier is equally likely to hit twice a row as it is 600 spins apart.
Using stats trackers, the best you can do is to get an overall feel of how often the large multipliers hit in general and then use this information to inform your betting strategy.
The best advice I can give you is to read my Mega Roulette Strategy page.
The maximum multiplier in Mega Roulette is 500x.
No, a stats tracker can’t predict when any outcome will hit, including multipliers. Stats trackers can help you see how often the multipliers hit on average.
