Lucky Number Roulette can be found in Coral and Ladbrokes betting shops. This fixed odds betting terminal game features a roulette layout with a massive 53 number selection. This increases the prize values of a number, but of course the odds of hitting have been lengthened.
The game also includes a Lucky Number selection which you choose prior to commencing your bets. This Lucky number can be any of the 53 numbers (zero – 52). After you have selected the number, you will then be presented with the standard roulette table pattern layout, but with further numbers.
Chip values can be raised or lowered using the high, medium or low button tabs, a bit of a pointless gimmick, but there nonetheless. There is also a neighbours betting screen, which is handy as the layout is new compared to other roulette games. This will allow you to select numbers close to your favourite, or anywhere else on the wheel.
Betting straight up on a number pays 50-1 (£1 will return £50). Therefore the maximum bet per number is £10 so as not to go over the £500 win per spin limit. As far as I could tell, the roulette ball stopped opposite its starting position, just like most William Hill roulette games. This of course has no advantage what-so-ever, but some people like this ‘feature’.
The game plays very much like Traditional Roulette from Global Draw (found on the same terminals). The graphics and sound appear to be the same as its 37 numbered counterpart. There is also the standard betting options, with high/low, columns and red and black betting. These pay the same odds as you would expect from regular roulette (50/50).
The Lucky Number is a kind of pot bonus, where if it lands you get an extra amount of money. This is a strange game with limited player appeal. The only draw I could see was the increased odds. Now a 250 numbered roulette wheel would be fun!
