What is Lightning Roulette?
Launched back in 2018 Lightning Roulette is one of Evolution’s most popular live casino game shows to date, this revolutionary game combines the excitement of live roulette with RNG gameplay as random multipliers between 50x and 500x are thrown into the game every spin.
Set in a beautifully designed Art Deco studio, much like its sister game Lightning Dice, Lightning Roulette is hosted by a talkative host that keeps players engaged in-between every single spin.
Despite all its intricacies, you should feel quite at home playing this game as you’ll find all the classic elements of a traditional roulette game here, the betting options remain the same, the wheel is your standard European style roulette wheel… The only major difference between Lightning Numbers.
How is Lightning Roulette played?
The core gameplay of Lightning Roulette is very similar to a normal game of European roulette you'd find in any casino around the world (or online).
Players are tasked with correctly predicting where a ball will land on a 37 segment roulette wheel by placing one or more bets on a roulette table, this table features corresponding numbers that are numbered 1 - 36 (and a single 0) and are coloured red or black.
Chips valued between 0.20 and 100 are placed on the table by individual players before the game round begins. After betting time has expired (15 seconds) the live game presenter will pull a lever and a 'Lightning Numbers' are randomly selected. These Lightning Numbers will see their value rise by up to 500x thanks to multipliers.
The wheel will then spin as it would in a normal game of European roulette, when the round has concluded and payouts have been made the betting clock will restart and players can place new bets once more.
What are Lightning Numbers?
Before every single spin of the wheel, the host will pull a lever that sees a random selection of numbers appear on the screen behind the host, these numbers are accompanied by a randomly generated multiplier up to 500x... These are your lightning numbers for that round!
You’ll be able to identify Lightning Numbers when a bolt hit the roulette table, lucky numbers will be illuminated by a gold light with their multiplier flashing over the number.
It should be noted that this game pays out different to other variants of roulette. Straight bets pay 30/1 whilst all other roulette bets such red or black, splits, corners and dozens pay the same as a standard game of roulette.
