How Music and Design Are Changing How We Think of Roulette

Roulette is a classic casino game that immediately brings a certain type of setting and music to mind. Yet, you might be surprised to see that the growing range of online roulette games has led to music and design playing a bigger part in this game than ever before. 

The Studio Design Needs to be Appealing

One of the reasons that roulette has become so popular now is that live dealer games have added to the variety of ways of playing it. This means that the creators need to take into design issues such as the studio layout and how the human presenters are dressed during the game.

An example from the Evolution range, Lightning Roulette adds an Art Deco Feel with a red and gold color scheme adding to the feeling of being in a luxury casino. This game has a live dealer whose outfits match the overall design and who explains what’s happening as the game progresses. Music is used to add to the feeling of a fast-paced, exciting game where everyone is waiting to see what number the ball lands in.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Live Roulette has a clever set design that reflects the popular TV show it’s based on. The presenter takes on the role of the host and the use of darkness and dramatic lighting is going to be recognizable to anyone who has watched contestants answer the questions in the original show, as explained here by Newscast Studio. Familiar music and sound effects are used to add to the atmosphere. 

Interesting Themes and Features

The basic gameplay in these games is similar to other roulette games but often with added features to make them stand out. In the example of Lightning Roulette, there’s a special round where multipliers are randomly added to numbers.

There’s more variation from the standard roulette rules in the K-Pop Roulette Live game by Playtech. With the focus on music and a Korean-speaking dealer, this game looks like no other version of roulette from the very start. In terms of the unique rules used, special bets can be on the inner section of the wheel, where moon, heart, diamond, and star symbols each take up a quarter of the numbers.

Sticky Bandits Roulette Live by Playtech carries on with the trend for unusual studio design, as it’s set in a Wild West saloon with the dealer dressed to match this theme. However, it varies from the traditional way of playing roulette thanks to the way that a slot machine-style bonus section is used as a way of adding win multipliers. Wild West design is in vogue just now thanks to concepts such as Louis Vuitton’s show in Paris earlier in the year, so this is a sensible way for Playtech to join the trend.

The Future of Roulette

As more people try online roulette, we can expect to see the range of ways of playing this game increase further. The addition of bonus features is a good way for games to stand out from the crowd but we’re just as likely to see new ways of designing the studio and dressing up the dealers to make unique, attention-grabbing roulette versions.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
