NetEnt To Release Live Sports Roulette Ahead of World Cup 2018
The Swedish software developer and live dealer casino provider has announced a new Live Sports Roulette game that features real-time score updates for football fans during the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Dealers will comment on the World Cup action whilst a live sports feed will show a summary of the on-going game statistics such as possession, shots on goal and fouls committed. Live Sports Roulette, which will be available on both mobile and desktop platform, will be available via NetEnt’s live casino partners from Thursday 14th June.
A promotional campaign titled, Goal Smash Roulette, will accompany the release of the new live service. Players will be given the chance to play for daily bonus giveaways and prize draws worth a total of €75,000 (£66,000).
The new live product follows the release of NetEnt’s World Cup Free Round Widget for slot games. The widget can award a number of free spins during gameplay. NetEnt’s flagship football title, Football Champions Cup, is also expected to receive the special offer treatment during the World Cup.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer for NetEnt, said that the new live roulette game offers a truly immersive football experience.

Both the Live Sports Roulette and Goal Smash Roulette promotions will be available to NetEnt operators on an opt-in basis. After the World Cup in Russia is over, the technology will be used for future sporting events, although no announcements have been made as to which.
The FIFA World Cup kicks off on Thursday 14th June in the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, as hosts Russia take on Saudi Arabia in the opening game. England’s first game takes place on Monday 18th June, as Gareth Southgate’s team take on Tunisia in their first Group G clash.
