American Auto Roulette by Vivo Gaming
VIVO Gaming is a developer founded in 2010 and has 8 studios around the world. These are predominantly in Asia and South America, but it also broadcast from Europe and the United States. There are 12 different games in the company's live roulette portfolio, and their dealers can speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Vietnamese, Philippine, Mandarin, and French. However, not all of them use a dealer: some roulette games are fully automated, and American Auto Roulette is one of them.
There are two variants in the “Auto Roulette” series of VIVO Gaming, European and American, and both have an automatically rotating wheel. In other words, there is no dealer: the wheel continues to spin 24/7, except for pauses between rounds. The American variant of these games, as the name suggests, uses a 38-number (double zero) wheel and offers an RTP of 94.74%. The HTML5 interface of the game is the same as all other VIVO Gaming live roulette games. So:
- Betting options and the racetrack are located on the bottom right of the interface.
- The bottom left is reserved for displaying the chat screen, bet amount, and game information.
- In the middle of the screen, win/loss information is displayed.
- You can change language & sound settings and check statistics from the top right.
Roulette VIP Game Features
The game does not differ in any way from the classic American roulette: in terms of rules, betting options, RTP, and chances of winning, it is completely in line with the RNG version of the game. There are no side bets and apart from the fact that you can chat with other players, there is nothing special to indicate that it is a live roulette game. You can switch between different cameras, but all you can see are views of the wheel from different angles.
If you don't mind that the gameplay isn't too different from RNG roulette games, the gameplay is pretty satisfying. The time between rounds is no more than ten seconds, so you hardly have to wait to join a new game. You can bet on a single number, a range of numbers, or a color. You can also try your luck at the basket bet, which is only found in this variant. All strategies available for American roulette can be used here as well.
To place a wager, simply place your chips on the betting options at the bottom of the screen: you can only do this after a round ends and a new one starts, so you have ten seconds or so. Minimum/maximum bet limits may be different for each casino, but generally, it starts from 0.10 AUD and goes up to 250 AUD. Using the bar in the upper right corner of the screen, you can:
- Change language,
- View detailed game information,
- Turn the full-screen feature on or off,
- Open the help screen,
- Turn the sound off and on,
- Access statistical data. For example, you can view the results of the last ten spins.
The winning number is also displayed with a pop-up on the screen. Since this is a live stream using HTML5, you can play it on any device (desktop & mobile) that has a browser. During our tests, we were able to get a satisfying experience even at 3G connection speeds.
