Pinball Roulette Information & Game Rules
Pinball Roulette is a fixed odds betting game based on the classic casino game roulette, but with a pinball twist. The goal is to predict what number the roulette ball will land on, but the results are determined by running the ball through a pinball machine rather than a roulette wheel. The ball bounces around off various pins on the pinball board before coming to a rest in one of the numbers moving across the bottom of the board. All the usual roulette bets are available: straight, row, column, red/black, odd/even, etc.
How to Play
Click on the chip stack located in the lower right hand corner of the game screen to select your bet amount.
The Roulette table is marked with numbers 0 through 36. The numbers are alternately coloured red and black, except for the 0 which is green. Roll your mouse pointer around the different areas of the table to see the different bet types. As you move your mouse pointer around the table, the numbers affected by the different bets will show up in blue.
Click the area(s) of the table where you would like to place bet(s). The appropriate chips will appear on the table. To remove your bet(s), press Shift + click the appropriate bet on the table, or click on Undo Last Bet or Clear All Bets.
The Repeat Bet button allows you to quickly place the same chips from one game to the next. You can still add additional bets. Then click on Bet to start the game.
A ball will be fired into a pinball machine where it will bounce around. At the same time, all the numbers from the roulette table move across the bottom of the screen in a row. Any numbers you have bet on are indicated with a yellow arrow. The ball will land on one of the numbers. The numbers are always in the same order, but they start at a randomly determined point every time.
Note that some of the following bets apply to more than one number. For example, the corner bet is split between 4 numbers. If you made a corner bet for 1.00, it would be the same as making a straight up bet of 0.25 on each of the 4 numbers. If one of the numbers was the winning number, you would get 9.00 (35:1 on 0.25).
All the numbers are also arranged in a straight line at the bottom of the betting screen. You can place a bet on the ball landing in a particular number or one of the 4 neighbouring numbers (the 2 on the left and the 2 on the right). The numbers loop around so that 26 is next to 0. Place a chip on any one number and the chips will show up on the table on all 5 numbers. The amount of your bet is split between all 5 numbers.
Combinations of Bets
You can bet on any combination of the above bets, including betting on bets that cover all numbers (except for 0). For example, you could bet on both red and black if you wanted to.
Roll your mouse pointer over different areas and the odds associated with that bet will show up in the black message area at the bottom of the screen.
If any of your bets in the regular game win, the bonus round is triggered. The bonus round gives you the chance to multiply your winnings. The screen will change and you can select Double (make a new bet with all your current winnings) or Collect (add your winnings to your account and return to the regular game).
Selecting Double will fire another ball into the pinball machine. Your bonus multiplier is determined by the different areas the ball hits. If the ball rolls over all 4 stars on the board, you win 5 times your wager.
If you win the amount of your winnings are added to your bet. You can play the bonus round repeatedly until you make a losing prediction, reach the maximum allowable winnings or click on Collect.
This option allows you to set up a maximum of 10 games in advance and play them automatically. The same bets will be applied to every game. While in auto-play mode the game will automatically collect winnings instead of offering the bonus round, unless the win occurs on the last game. Click on the Auto Bet button and then select the number of games you want your bet to apply to. In between every game, a window will appear that will tell you how many games you have left and allow you to cancel the auto play.
Selecting Turbo Bet will cause the result of the game to appear immediately without watching the pinball animation.
The results history for the current game session is displayed in a row in the betting screen.
The long term, average expected RTP is 97.00%. System malfunction voids all pays and play.
