Roulette is a mainstay to the casino experience. The game of Roulette has been romanticized in movies and has become a fixture of everyone's perception of casinos--even online casinos. Roulette presents its own specific set of challenges though: presentation in roulette must remind the player of that classic casino experience. This is the strength of Playborne's True 3D Roulette. True 3D Roulette is exactly what it says it is: A truly 3D experience that enables players to enjoy a classic game in a digital medium. Because Roulette is such an exhilarating experience, players will benefit from Playborne's successful implementation--an implementation that gets the maintenance out of the way and gets straight at the heart of the game.
This isn't to say that True 3D Roulette is without its own set of frills and features. The first feature is the way in which Playborne's dedication to immersive environments is implemented into the classic game. Not enough can be said of the graphics of the game. The betting table and the wheel will remind players of their brief stay in Vegas. While Playborne could have flattened the wheel out and put the user in a top down mode, they put the player at the table in order to feel the heart pounding thrill of Roulette from the digital casino.
Meanwhile, Playborne leverages the digital component of the game. An easy drop down menu provides table statistics that tell the player how often Blacks win versus Reds, Evens versus Odds, and provides a short list of frequently winning numbers and numbers that have not won in a while to help the user plan their bet. Across the bottom of the screen, the players chips are stacked, and betting is as easy as dragging the chip value of choice and placing it in the appropriate spots on the table. Because the table is designed like a standard roulette table, pros will be familiar with it and amateurs will find it easy to understand quickly. Much like the stat chart, each bet comes with its own set of statistics, that are displayed for easy access to the user. For players feeling lucky or that find themselves in the passion of the game, there is an easily accessible double button to double all of a player's bets.
It must be said that the strength of Playborne's True 3D Roulette is the way that the truly three dimensional approach allows the player to feel like they are in the casino. The ball races around the wheel at a speed that challenges the vision to follow until it slows and bounces to a stop, declaring a winning number. The player has multiple ways to bet, all of which are found always accessible to the player at the left side of the screen, and organized to resemble a Roulette Table. The number statistics are provided to the player, keeping all the bookkeeping out of the way and making Playborne's True 3D Roulette experience one that roulette should be: daring, excitement, strategy, and a little bit of luck.
