This is a JAVA-based casino, so no download is required. Therefore it doesn’t have the rich graphics that a regular software-based casino usually offers but on the other hand you don’t have to wait for a download and install their software either. Roman Palace Casino was developed by Gambling Software (see Casino Software Review).
Roman Palace is operating under a gaming license granted by the government of Grenada. Established, licensed, and fully functional since 11/25/1999. To have a license means that Roman Palace is able to yearly deposit enough money (approximately US $50,000 up to US $100,000 per annum), pay the taxes (of about 2,5% up to 5%), and hence is subject to the control of the government of Grenada.

Big Six Wheel
The game is played on a large vertical wheel (“Wheel of Fortune”) with dollar bills inlaid as markers. Players wager which of the 5 denominations the indicator will land on. Somewhere on the Big Six Wheel
wheel is a Joker and a 3-Star-Logo which pays most. Since the house edge is incredibly high – as you can see in the payout table below – we would advise you never to play the Big Six Wheel. Play

Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoSet: 4 Decks are used which is not too good and not too bad. As less decks are used as more easy it gets to keep track of the cards. The cards are shuffled after every round though which makes it quite impossible to keep track of the cards: You start off with the same conditions and probabilities every round. You can choose a $1-$25 or $5-$100 table. The house edge is 0.25% which is good.
Rules: The dealer stands on soft 17 (Ace & 6) which is good because he does not get more chances to draw closer to 21 this way. Doubling down is allowed on any first two cards which is Blackjack
better than what land based casinos offer you (usually you can double down only on a two card total of 9, 10, or 11). You even can double down after you split pairs which is good. Pairs may be split up to 3 hands which is excellent and lots of fun. If you split two aces, you get only one additional card for each hand. If the dealer’s first card is an ace you are offered insurance. Roman Palace offers a Multi-Hand Blackjack game as well, where they use 8 decks. You can play up to three hands separately if you wish which is very much fun. And you can surrender at any time. Otherwise the same rules apply. These two are very good blackjack games. Play
Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoRoman Palace offers 3x odds: if you bet $10 on the pass-line (bet, that the player will win) with, you can wager $30 behind it (increase your original bet after the dice have been thrown). To wager behind is what a good craps player will do and a criteria of a good craps game is how many odds the casino offers you. As the amount of allowed odds increases, the house advantage decreases considerably. The house edge is 0.85% / 0.68% (pass-line / don’t-pass-line) when offering 1x odds – as most online casinos do -, 0.61% / 4.5 when offering 2x odds – as few online casinos do, and 0.47% / 0.34% already when offering 3x odds – as only very little casinos do. But Roman Palace does Craps
not exactly offer the 3x odds the way land based casinos do: 3x usually means that you can bet three times the amount you could win. So if the odds were 3x and you bet $10 on the pass-line, you could win $20 and wager $60 behind it. Because Roman Palace does not follow the real rules – as almost no online casino does – the basic house edge stays at 0.47% for pass-line-bets but grows to 0.45% for don’t-pass-line-bets. Limits are $5 to a $100 maximum total on any one roll. The ‘prop’ bets (hard-ways, etc.) have a $2-$25 limit. To sum it up Queen’s Club Casino offers you the best odds you can find online and the table limits are very good as well. If I played Craps online I would play it here. Play
Pai Gow Poker
Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoYou are paid even money on all winning hands less a 2% commission which is pretty good since you usually pay a 5% commission. The dealer is always the bank which sets the basic house edge at 2.85%. Actually only a Pai Gow Poker game where the casino alternates the turn of the banker is good; it would set the house edge at 1.46%. It works like this: In the event of an exact match between hands, called a copy, the tie goes to the banker. (The probability that the front. hands will copy is 2.55% and the probability that the back hands Pai Gow Poker
will copy is 0.32%.) When it is your turn to be the banker the house has only an 0.08% edge over you. Because both the turn of the banker and the 0.08% edge alternates you end up with the aforesaid 1.46% house edge. Almost every online casino only lets the dealer bank. So does Roman Palace Casino. A progressive jackpot is paid out if any 5 cards of the 7 cards you are dealt make up a royal flush. Betting limits are $1-$25 which is astonishingly little. Roman Palace’s Pai Gow is very nice because of the jackpot they offer. But there certainly are better Pai Gow games out there. Play
Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoEach ticket or “sleeve” contains three windows that you open to reveal the symbols. Match the three symbols in one of the windows in the exact order that they are displayed in the payout chart and win a set prize. These are like lottery tickets where you scratch off a protective covering to reveal matching Pull Tabs
numbers or something similar and there is no way to estimate what the overall payback may be, unless one is willing to play many, many times in order to calculate an average pay out. Each ticket costs 50c. This scratch-off game has a winning multiplier that goes up to 400x, so for your 50c bet you’ll walk away with $200. Prizes range from $200 to $1. Play
Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoThis is a simple game where the player makes an ‘ante’ , then two cards are chosen and you may raise your bet if you think a third card will fit in between the first two. You are given certain payouts for certain spreads. The spread is the number of ranks between two given cards. For example, the spread between a five and an eight is two. The maximum spread is eleven. The game itself is difficult to find these days in land-based casinos and not all online Red Dog
casinos offer Red Dog. In Red Dog the greater the number of decks the better the odds for the player. This is because of the greater probability of drawing the right card or a three of a kind, which pays 11:1. Since Roman Palace uses only 2 decks the house edge is 3.08% which we consider too high to play here since there are online casinos playing Red Dog with 8 decks, cutting the house edge down to 2.75%. Limits are $1-$100. Play

Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoThis is a double-zero wheel (containing one 0 and one double-00) which sets the casino’s basic edge at 5.3%, which actually is too high to play here. Roman Palace does not use the ‘la partage’ rule: the player loses only half the bet on the ‘outside’ bets should one of the zeros come up (the ‘outside’ bets are high, low; red, black; odd and even). Also called the ‘en prison’ rule. If Roman Palace used this rule, the casino’s edge on those bets would be cut down to 2.63%. If you are an outside bettor, who likes to bet on high, low, red, American Roulette
black, odd or even only, you should look for the American roulette version offering the ‘la partage’ rule in another casino, since it offers slightly better odds for those bets (2.63%). But if you prefer to bet on all bets alike, you really should play the European Roulette offering a house edge of 2.7% on all bets. Consider that inside bets offer far better payouts than outside bets, so bet the middle 12 once in a while. Limits are $1-$25 with a total of $200 permitted on any one spin. If you would like to bet higher, go to Global-Player Casino. You can bet up to $6,000 there. Play
Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoIt is difficult to calculate the payout probabilities of slot machines without knowing exactly how many times a certain symbol appears on each real. You could sit in front of the machine, pull the lever 500,000 times and write the results Slots
down or rely on the information that Roman Palace gives you. They claim that their overall payout was 98% which is very good amongst online casinos. The choice of betting denominations is excellent with 1c, 5c, 25c, $1, or $5 slot machines. Play

Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoExcellent rules for the player. All the ten-spot cards are removed from the decks though. To compensate for this off balance in the odds, the casinos have made the payouts more rewarding.
Set: 6 Decks are used which is standard. The cards are shuffled after every hand which is not so good because it makes it most difficult to count cards. There are online casinos shuffling after about half the deck was played. The house edge is 0.76% which is excellent but could be better. This is because Roman Palace lets the Dealer hit on soft 17. A Spanish 21 game where the Dealer stands on soft 17 has a house edge of 0.4%. These conditions cannot be found online anyway. The payoffs are very tempting.
Rules: The dealer hits soft 17 (Ace & 6) which increases the house edge: If he had to stand on soft 17, that’s it. But if he hits he gets a second Spanish 21
chance to draw closer to 21. And if he draws more than 4, the Ace will count as 1 and he gets a third chance to draw closer to 21. Doubling down is allowed on any first two cards which is better than what land based casinos offer you. You even can double down after you split pairs which again is exceptionally good. Pairs may be split to 4 hands which is excellent and lots of fun. Even to split aces a second time is allowed. You can surrender after the dealer has looked at his second card (late surrender). When the dealer has an 10, or an ace showing, the chance of losing is greater than 75%, which makes it a good option for you. Even a non-busted doubled hand can be surrendered, keeping the initial bet. !!!: A player’s blackjack wins over a dealer’s blackjack and pays 3:2. The player wins 21 ties. Betting limits are typically $1-$25 or $5-$100.

Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoInstead of playing at a “machine”, you play at a “table”, but basically it is just a 9/6 Jacks or Better game with a Table Poker
proportional pay schedule. This means that the return is the same, regardless of the number of coins played. However, the theoretical return is 99.5% which makes it worth a try. Play

Casino Reviews: Roman Palace CasinoRoman Palace calls it Royal Rumble: Each player and the dealer get one card. If your card is higher you win even money. If the dealer’s card is higher you lose. If it is a tie you can surrender and lose your bet (only half the bet when played in land-based casinos) or go to war: You double your bet and play another game. If your second set of cards beats the dealer you win even money on the total wager (in land-based casinos you win even money on the raise only and get back your original wager). If the dealer’s second card is greater you lose both bets. If there is a tie you win 3:1 which is excellent since many online casinos offer you a simple 1:1 War
payout on ties after going to war. You can bet on a tie from the start as well, which pays 10:1 if the first two cards tie. The house edge on the tie bet is 18.65% though. The basic house edge depends on the number of decks used and lies between 2.42% (1 deck) and 2.9% (8 decks). Roman Palace uses only 1 deck which is very good since it sets the basic house edge at 2.42% (most land-based casinos use 6 decks offering a house edge of 2.88%). Because Roman Palace offers you a 3:1 payout on ties after going to war and using only 1 deck the overall house edge is only 0.66% which makes it the best War game compared to both land based and online casinos.
