Released in autumn 2019, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Golden Chip Roulette offers a classic European version of the popular table game – with a few innovative twists thrown in.
The Swedish operator’s first take on roulette introduces an inner wheel able to generate a random multiplier of up to 500x, which cranks up the game’s excitement considerably.
Think smart simplicity here rather than over-fancy 3D graphics, and play to the background sounds of lounge-style, jazzy music.
The game also uses Yggdrasil’s BOOST feature, incorporating a string of tools individual casinos can offer punters, including tournaments.
How to play
Golden Chip Roulette is a mobile-compatible affair, and as ever with this game, you’re betting on where the ball will land on the wheel’s 37 numbered pockets following each spin. Place your bets, having chosen a chip and a number or block, hit spin and you’re away! There’s also an extensive variety of chip sizes, from 0.10 to 1,000, giving players of all experience plenty of choices.
All your vital betting stats are clearly displayed, and there’s an intuitive selection of chips. The wheel spins in opposing directions for every other spin.

- Odds and evens: 1-1

Golden Chip Roulette special features
Golden Chip feature
This nice addition can transform each chip placed as a straight (i.e. single number) bet into gold! The value of the chip placed stays the same, but the randomly generated multiplier of 10x to 500x can mean potentially massive wins.
Essentially, each time you have a whirl in Golden Chip Roulette, the inner wheel generates ones of these multipliers for that spin:
- 10x, 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 250x, 500x
That means that, instead of a standard 35-1 win on one number, a random prize is paid out somewhere between 10x and 500x your stake. Clearly, the first two multipliers of 10x and 25x is less than a regular 35-1 win on a single number, but there’s every chance you could win far more.
You won’t find a progressive jackpot in Golden Chip Roulette. Maximum win on a straight-up number is 500x bet, default table limit is €2,000 or €50 on a straight-up number. Meanwhile, maximum potential win in a single round, playing at default maximum bet limits is a whopping €45,400.
Return to Player (RTP)
As you’d expect, RTP or Return to Player here is a little above the average for a slot game, at 97.3% on the regular chips, 96.8% for the single-number Golden Chips.
This is a classy addition to Yggdrasil’s growing portfolio of table games and has met with broad approval from industry reviewers. It’s aimed at attracting both high rollers and newer players, and the operator has successfully recreated an authentic vibe of a VIP private gaming lounge.
The graphics are first-class, while the speed of the spins is aimed at realistically replicating a roulette table’s real-life action. So you should find it a pretty pacey game to play, too.
It’s a game that rolls smoothly, with a clear design and layout, plus you’ll have the reassurance of Yggdrasil being a highly reputable operator, and knowing your game will play out fairly. Try it out for free before playing for any real money. As ever, make sure you stay within your pre-set budgetary limits and keep things fun.
