Why Online Roulette Is So Popular in Europe

Roulette is one of the most popular games in a casino, sometimes even 2nd only to slot machines. Easy to learn and play, free of skill based knowledge with different variations in offer.  If you are new to casino games, playing online roulette will probably be one of the first things you do and enjoy. The game was born in Europe, France to be more precise. The word roulette means “little wheel”, and is known to have become popular by the end of the 1700’s in Paris.

By the 19th century, roulette was played all over Europe and the USA. It became the most popular casino game at that time. Despite this early popularity, modern roulette owes its fame to Monte Carlo and the Blanc family, who established the most prestigious casino of all time. It happened in the 1860’s, when the German government banned all forms of gambling, and so the Blanc’s moved their gambling operations to Monte Carlo where they created a gambling Mecca for the rich and royal. It was here where the single zero roulette was born, and over the years the game spread out around the world, except in the United States where the double zero wheel had been established. European roulette in Spain is popular, as well as in France, England and most European countries.

Online roulette continued the legacy of the small wheel, and can be played in different formats. It is easier to find all the variations of roulette than in a brick and mortar casino. Formats include 2D, 3D, realistic roulette and live dealer roulette. But what makes this simple game so popular?

It’s easy to learn

No skills and little knowledge of mathematical odds are required to play. There are no complex rules and the game is straightforward. You can decide to apply some money management strategies that control the way you bet to extent the bankroll, and increase the chances of hitting a big win; but in general the game is played freely while enjoying a friendly chat and drink.

The glamour if it all

The details in the design of this casino game set it aside from any other. There is a fancy wheel with red and black colors, a green velvet long table, and a white marble that spins and makes a very characteristic noise as it finally drops in a number slot. The whole process is guided by the dealer who manages the key elements of a good dramatic moment than ends in a climax.

The fact that random players come and go during each spin adds more to the excitement. It is always a surprise to see who hits a huge win and who seems to be on a bad roll. It is the other players that build up the drama with their cheers, shouts, laughs and disappointments. Other casino games host silent focused players, but not roulette. This is the game for the loud and cheerful.

Don’t worry about other players

This is a 100% against the house game. Players do not compete against each other like in poker, or have to be wary of what cards the other has like in blackjack. On roulette everyone is betting against the house, but players can even bet on the same numbers as others. Latch on to their luck.

Bigger payouts

Online slots and baccarat are the two other casino games that require little wit, but roulette can offer huge payouts with simple decisions. Just bet on a single number and you can win dozens of times your own bet, or just bet odds/even and win the same amount you wagered.

Playing online

Roulette is a really fun game to play online. The most common offer will be the 2D roulette, with randomly generated numbers, but most online casinos also offer live dealer roulette. Live dealer roulette combines online play with a real casino. From your device and a video camera in a real casino, you can select the table and dealer of your choice and take a seat. The live dealer will talk to you as you chat, and you can talk to the other players in the table.

Realistic roulette is something new that takes the experience of 2D games to the next immersive level, just shy from virtual reality. Realistic Games has recently partnered with Microgaming to offer their realistic portfolio, which has made the game accessible to dozens of online casinos. Spearhead has also developed a similar 3D European roulette but focused on mobile devices.

As you can see, the game of roulette continues to evolve with new times and technology. VR roulette will soon be common and who knows what the future will hold.

Best Games to Come In 2022

There is a common quip in the gaming and game development world that new games’ release dates are more of suggestions than a sure thing. This is because no game ever makes its initial release date. But gamers have come to terms with delays and understand that it’s part of the game development process. However, this does not keep us from getting excited about the new titles slated to be released later this year.

This piece will look at the best games you should expect before the year ends. So if you’re ready to possibly get your hopes up for no reason, keep reading to learn more.

1. God of War

God of war is a quirky game set in a world inspired by the Norse mythology and was initially released in 2005. The game has gone through a few iterations over the years, which has only improved its gameplay. The current title does an excellent job at developing its characters and establishing their backstories, pulling you into the game and engaging you even more.

In addition, the musical score does an even better job at accentuating important moments in the game. That’s why we are so excited about the new revamp slated for later on this year. We are sure the stories and music will only get better, and we don’t even need to mention the gameplay. Sony always kills it.

2. Call of Duty

When duty calls, you have to answer. This is one that never disappoints. Its action sequences are as engaging as ever, and the graphics are every graphics designer’s envy. Betway also found that playing COD helps you burn as much calories as a long walk, with a 90 minute gaming session elevating your heart rate to 90+ beats per minute and helping you burn up to 180 calories.

So you can now enjoy your gaming sessions and don’t have to worry about missing the gym. And with a new release this year, we have more than one thing to be excited about.

3. Last of Us

Another title that is excellent to play is Last of Us. It’s set in a decaying post-apocalyptic world and stars two characters—a child accompanied by an adult. However, the story is not about the dilapidated world but about these two characters and their struggle to survive this world.

This is one we hope the development gods here us and release as expected. We cross our fingers and hope it makes its release date this year.

4. A Plague’s Tale

Set in a corps-ridden world, plague-infested rats and inquisition soldiers who have it out for the two orphaned sibling protagonists. The game’s setting does an excellent job of making the main characters empathetic as you witness their struggle from a third-person perspective.

However, the gameplay is not that engaging, and the obstacles are neither challenging nor compelling. We are glad the makers are revamping this one and getting a second chance at taking another crack later this year.

5. FIFA 23

FIFA is a classic game that never disappoints. It has been a favorite for many, and FIFA 23 is expected to be the most popular iteration of the francise yet.

QTech Games bolsters its offering with CQ9 Gaming integration

Emerging-markets leader extends its premier portfolio with more top slots from an emerging Asian force in multiplayer video content

QTech Games, the number-one games distributor across all emerging markets, has announced its latest premium partnership with Asian video content and slots supplier, CQ9 Gaming.

Under the terms of the new agreement, CQ9 Gaming’s GLI-certified portfolio – comprising top-quality slots, arcade, and table casino games – has been integrated for QTech Games clients and their players, providing another cutting edge to a powerhouse platform recognised for bringing the finest online games to market across developing territories.

Popular CQ9 titles include Good Fortune, 1945, Kronos, Zeus, Lucky Fishing, and many others which harness the appeal of multiplayer fish games, arcade games, not to mention multiplayer online board and card games. This ever-evolving production line will help QTech Games strengthen its comprehensive spread of gaming verticals, central to QTech ONE™, its definitive one-stop shop for global operators.

The deal organically broadens CQ9 Gaming’s global footprint, accessing a fresh scope of growth markets for accelerated expansion. As the fastest-growing distributor over the past few years, QTech’s platform is localised for each region with native mobile apps, robust reporting and marketing tools, and 24/7 local-language support.

Ulf Norder, CCO at QTech Games, said: “We’re excited to be teaming up with CQ9 Gaming whose stunning graphics and gameplay chart near the pinnacle of the marketplace. The QTech Games platform is equipped with the best games from the world’s leading suppliers – and CQ9 now joins this branching tree.

“CQ9 Gaming may only be a young company, but they’ve already managed to build a strong fan-base in Asia and are moving on to conquer previously untapped markets in Europe and LatAm. Their titles run off an agile HTML5 gaming engine, meaning that you can access them either via desktop or mobile devices, even if the casino doesn’t currently offer a dedicated mobile app.

“Wherever you set your scene in this ever-changing landscape, our platform champions a mobile-first mantra, packed with all the best localised games that cater to varied cultural tastes. By way of instructive example, if you don’t offer the fish game in China, there’s no chance of becoming successful. And it’s a similar story with the Andar Bahar in India. CQ9 understand the demand for regional specificity throughout Asia and beyond, making them a logical and long-term ally with which to team up.”

A CQ9 spokesperson added: “This deal significantly broadens CQ9 Gaming’s international influence, opening up ‘margin’ markets from Eastern Europe and Latin America for diversified growth.

“CQ9 is one of the leading video slot suppliers in the Asian market with more than 100 titles under our belt. We’re steadily working on extending that reach and establishing ourselves in Europe and CIS-facing territories, and QTech’s broad spread of emerging-markets access means we can achieve this with dexterity while also consolidating our existing Asia-facing audience.

“Our goal has always been to design intuitive and interactive live-dealer experiences that are customised for every generation of mobile end-user. Since QTech Games is a defining distributor across Asia and other unexploited regions, we can’t wait to see how our games connect with different and diverse player profiles.

“At a time of refined localization techniques, QTech Games is really delivering on their brand promise of customising high-class content for varied cultures. This is what keeps them at the forefront of relevance for all kinds of players in the bubbling melting-pot of emerging markets.”
