About Lightning Roulette
Slot produced by Evolution Gaming
ZAP! Lucky Lightning Strikes in Live Casino!
Lightning Roulette is the classic Roulette game, with a twist. Briefly, Lightning Roulette combines the Classic Roulette game, the Auto Roulette and a Random Number generator system (Slot games actually work based on this RNG system), Lighting Roulette gives you the chance to have your winning stakes multiplied up to 500x. Lightning Roulette is a kind of Roulette hybrid. Think of it as you think of Superman or Spiderman, something good, really good, with an upgrade.
How do You Actually Play it?
Once the betting round opens, just like for any other Roulette table, you are invited to place your bets. That part is pretty easy - just select the chip value and choose your preferred numbers. What you need to remember here is that the multipliers from Lightning Roulette only apply to winning straight-up bets so ideally, to increase your chances for a sky-high pay-out, you would only place straight ups. That means that also using the race track is an option, if you are more into betting on areas/French bets. When the betting round closes is when the miracle actually happens: the wheel is spinning and between 1 and 5 random numbers on the table are randomly 'lightning struck', getting one of the following multipliers: 50x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 400x or 500x. The suspense is in the air: as the ball drops, the winning number is announced. In case the winning number is one of the numbers which were magically multiplied and you do have a straight-up bet placed on it, then you’re in for a treat or, even better, 500x treats!
It is also important to know is that if your straight-up bet is not ‘lightning struck’ your pay-out will be a normal one, lowered at 30:1 instead of 35:1
What Does This Roulette Table Look Like?
It’s pretty clear by now that Lightning Roulette is the innovation all Roulette enthusiasts have been waiting for. Even if you haven’t played the game yet, the description alone should have convinced you by now. And, to complement this unique concept, Evolution Gaming has created a one of a kind environment too, with red, black and gold colours and lightning effects – fancy and intense: just like the game. The game presenter walks at ease in the game studio, as big as your grandma’s living room, adding more suspense and increasing the adrenaline – ‘which one will it be, dear players?’
What Should You Know about Lighting Roulette?
- Only straight-up bets can get multiplied so if you place a split bet, corner or any other type of bet, even if the winning number is also one of the randomly 'struck by the multiplier lighting' number, you will not be paid out via the multiplier, but you will win at normal stakes.
- The ideal way of betting on Lightning Roulette is obviously directly on the number, so straight-up bets. To make your betting pattern easier, you can go and bet directly on the racetrack - keep in mind that betting on the racetrack means you bet on the number of your choice and another 4 numbers around it.
- The table is available 24/7 so unless maintenance kicks in, you can play whenever you like.
- Any Roulette strategy can be applied: from betting on the same number every round, to betting on French bets, to areas and so on. The randomness of the ‘lightning multiplier’ cannot be predicted, but you can always have a look at stats, in case you think you see any pattern there, on the last multiplied numbers.
- You can play from any device: your PC, iPad, smartphone you name it. The table is designed to be responsive.
- You can use the statistics to decide what your next bet will be. Maybe you want to bet on one of the hot numbers? The good news is, to take advantage of the moment, in Lightning Roulette you can do so directly from the statistics. Once you hover over the stats, you will be given the possibility to place a bet directly on the stats UI, which will be reflected on the roulette felt.
Lightning Roulette Payouts
Except for the novelty brought by the multipliers, which can pump your stake up to 50x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 400x or 500x, the rest of the pay-outs are as for any Roulette game, with one big exception. As mentioned, straight-up bets will pay 30:1 instead of 35:1
