Online casinos DraftKings, Golden Nugget and WynnBET are now home to Roulette Up, a new game from casino games firm Galaxy Gaming.

Roulette Up is live in several states, and Galaxy indicated in a news release it plans to launch the game in Canada soon. The company partnered with server provider ODDSworks for the launch.

Roulette Up adds progressive side bets to traditional game

The typical roulette game starts with players placing chips on a betting board that offers a variety of bets based on the color of the winning number as well as the number itself (exact match, odd/even, etc.).

Once bets are placed, the croupier (dealer) spins the roulette wheel, drops the ball into the wheel, and waits for the ball to come to rest in one of the 38 numbers on the wheel. Winners are paid out, and the game moves to the next round.

Wins can go as high as 399:1, 100% of the jackpot

Roulette Up adds a twist to this format by introducing a side bet that hinges on the winning number going up each round. Players make their side bet, and the winning number in that round sets the baseline.

If the next winning number is higher than the baseline, the players move up the following prize ladder:

  • Streak of two: Push
  • Streak of three: Pays 1:1
  • Streak of four: Pays 3:1
  • Streak of five: Pays 9:1
  • Streak of six: Pays 24:1
  • Streak of seven: Pays 99:1
  • Streak of eight: Pays 399:1

The real-money online casino game also includes a second jackpot side bet. The jackpot is progressive and only pays out if there’s a streak of eight increasing numbers. However, a jackpot bet pays out small dollar amounts if a player gets a streak of four, five, six, or seven.

Prizes range from $10 for four straight to a 100% payout if the streak hits eight. If multiple players hit the jackpot, the winnings are split between those players.

ODDSworks happy to partner with Galaxy

ODDSworks President Larry DeMar said his company is “humbled and honored” to work with Galaxy, and that it will “do everything in our power to make sure our casino partners and their players, love these games as much as we do.”

In a Galaxy Gaming news release CEO Matt Reback said:

“We’re thrilled to partner with ODDSworks to introduce some of our best-in-class table games to online players in North America for the first time.

Galaxy Gaming represents the world’s premier collection of table games brands, and this partnership is yet another example of how we are working hard to make our games available to players in casinos, card rooms, and online.”

ODDSworks has partnered with Galaxy Gaming for more than two years. The two companies first joined forces in October 2022.
