Portomaso Live Roulette from PlayPearls: Game Review - win big on this roulette wheel!

Step into a live casino environment and soak up some real-life casino atmosphere!

Live Casinos are getting bigger and bigger all the time as players crave that original authentic casino experience from the comfort of their own homes rather than having to visit a solid brick and mortar one.

I had never experienced playing a live casino online game before so I was quite eager to jump on the bandwagon and see what all the fuss was about. I heard good things about the Portomaso Casino and it is really cool that it is streamed live from the casino in Malta.

As standard, the roulette wheel contains 37 numbers but there are lots of ways that you can place your bets in this game.

Special Features

The first cool feature I noticed when I started to play this game was that you can play “Fun play” so naturally, I chose this option as a way of tipping my toe lightly in the water before placing any real bets.

There is a ridiculous amount of choices when it comes to placing bets on the roulette wheel in this game. You can pick your numbers manually of course or you can spread your bet out into sections such as the 1st 12, 2nd 12, and 3rd 12. You can also bet red and black as well as even and odd numbers.

Players can choose from inside bets which allow you to select single numbers, splits: where you can bet on two numbers at the same time, and others such as baskets, corners and the six line bet which lets you bet on six consecutive numbers by placing a chip on the intersection at the end of any two rows of numbers.

Players can also place French and Multi bets. These involve placing numerous chips on certain sections of the roulette wheel and consist of Tiers du Cylindre, Orphelins a Cheval, Voisins du Zero, Jeu Zero, and Neighbors. You can also choose the Autopick 5 option which lets you bet on 5 randomly selected numbers. There is also a Red/Black snake option that lets you bet on 12 numbers that are marked red or black on the wheel.

One last feature worth mentioning is the Chat option. Here you can talk to other players as you place bets and it really brings you closer to the game itself as you can chat away while the wheel spins, much like a real-life casino.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

The first thing that struck about this game is its presentation. I was blown away by how the live casino is displayed on the screen. The options and bet menus are clearly displayed at the bottom of the screen and everything is brightly coloured so it stands out immediately when the game loads.

The cameras are expertly placed and zoom in at the perfect time when the wheel is spinning, this guarantees you won’t miss out on one second of the action. The sounds of wheels spinning and people talking really add to the live casino environment. The players in the casino look like they are having a good time and the dealers are always smiling so it creates a really nice atmosphere as you place those chips.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 37 numbers to choose from in a variety of ways and the maximum bet that you can place is 2,000.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game.

  • Straight Up: 35 to 1
  • Split: 17 to 1
  • Street: 11 to 1
  • Corner: 8 to 1
  • Six Line: 5 to 1
  • Column: 2 to 1
  • Dozen: 2 to 1
  • Red/Black 1 to 1
  • Even/Odd: 1 to 1
  • 1-18/19-36: 1 to 1

Portomaso Live Roulette is made by Playpearls and it is immensely fun. Having never played in a live online casino before, it is safe to say that I am a fan now.
