offer two of the most unique virtual roulette games on the market with customer service that can’t be beaten. As one of the key operators of the huge bwin.party brand they’re a household name and be relied upon to deliver where it matters.
Although they’re not a high street name, bwin’s site has the feel of a long- established sportsbook operator: The stylish, graded black and charcoal backgrounds in the lobby screens complement the dark yellow font to give it a functional yet slightly-racy look that fits well with bwin’s overall branding, whilst navigation and load-up times are second to none,
Needless to say everything’s instant play and it worked flawlessly in every browser we tried it on. Similarly, sign-up was quick and easy, as you’d expect.
Sites under the bwin.party banner use proprietary software, so expect to see some games that you’ve not come across before – and enjoy a refreshing change.
bwin’s name appears on the shirts of Real Madrid players, and they also have a marketing deal with Bayern Munich. If that doesn’t convince you then they also signed a deal with Manchester United in August 2012 to become their official online gaming partner as well. That just about tells you everything you need to know.
There are 2 different virtual games on offer here, designed using bwin/Party’s proprietary software. They’re both well-executed but very different to look at:
European Roulette Pro features a highly-authentic virtual wheel complete with polished wood casing and a classy-looking stainless steel column. The wheel is in permanent close –up, and spun very smoothly on our 60 Mb connection. You’ll find all the standard extras here plus some others that you may not have seen before:
If you’re wondering what your maximum and minimum stakes are you just need to click the handy ‘Min/Max’ button on the top right. A list will appear showing you the bet limits, which in our case ranged from €0.10 up to €100 for straight up bets, with the maximum rising up to €2,000 for an outside bet.
There’s also as great turbo function, which ditches the formality of sending the ball around the track and announces your result straight away. Using this option you can fit in one spin in just a few seconds, which would unthinkable with any other type of roulette.
Finally, this version also lets you pick colour schemes, so if the standard betting grid colours don’t appeal, you can change them on a whim to red, purple or blue.
The other game option at bwin is their sterling-denominated European game, taking bets from £1 to £250. This is a sportier-looking offering, with a stripped-down wheel viewed from a higher angle and a classic green betting grid in overhead format.
Both versions look and play extremely well – just decide according to your own personal tastes and off you go.
More recently bwin have added a live casino to their selection, with a premium installation from Evolution Gaming that offer spins in their branded penthouse suite overlooking Riga from €1 to €5,000 a spin, or you can play in the state-of-the-art Immersive Roulette room.
Finally, if you're a Man United fan then bwin have real treat for you: Man Utd Casino - a casino app dedicated to Man Utd and their fans - lets you mingle with stars like Wayne Rooney, Darren Fletcher and Rafael in the lobby and hear them cheer for you at the tables! Enjoy casino play with Blackjack, European Roulette and American Roulette.
bwin have a great FAQ section, but there’s additional help if you need it: You can call their Gibraltar office on 00 350 299 77761, where UK players will get assistance from a native English speaker. We were just as impressed with the lack of any recorded message or endless menus – the call was picked up in less than 2 rings by the agent who answered our query.
bwin accept deposits via credit/debit card, e-wallet, pre-paid card or by bank transfer
