A Hybrid Roulette Game From Evolution


Live dealer games create outcomes from actual real studio operations. Regular online casino games generate outcomes based on random number simulation. Evolution Gaming has created a hybrid roulette variant that contains both elements. It is called Lightning Roulette and is live at online casinos like Mr Green, 32Red and Royal Vegas. Lightning Roulette was awarded Product Innovation of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards and also EGR's Game of the Year 2018, voted for by online gaming operators.

The highlight of Lightning Roulette from Evolution Gaming is the blending of world-class live casino action and RNG game play. This unique concept provides for a completely different player experience. The game is played on a European Roulette wheel that has only 0. So you are not disadvantaged with the lower house edge of the American Roulette wheel. All the usual roulette bets can be availed. The blending with simulated game play comes through Lucky Numbers and Lucky Payouts. There is a roulette layout displayed on a giant screen behind the dealer. In each spin of the live roulette wheel, up to five numbers are randomly struck by lightning and they become Lucky Numbers. Each Lucky Number is assigned a Lucky Payout. This is a payout multiplier randomly selected from 50x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 400x and 500x .

After all players place their bets, the live dealer spins the roulette wheel. The Lucky Numbers and the Lucky Payouts are displayed on the screen. For these to come into play, first the roulette ball must land on the wheel. Then if a player has made a Single Number bet on that Lucky Number, they will have their payout multiplied by the Lucky Payout. In order to compensate for this extra payout, normal Single Number bets pay 30:1 instead of the usual 35:1. All other Lightning Roulette bets pay as usual.

Lightning Roulette transports players to an arena whose visual appeal is also out of the world. The electrifying player interface is set in a stunning black and gold Art Deco environment. The live dealer acts as a host in a game show-style set-up with advanced sound and lighting effects. Evolution Gaming has incorporated features in Lightning Roulette that are great for online casino operators as well. The massive multiplayer scalability can accommodate by a virtually unlimited number of concurrent players. There is a unique Direct Game Launch feature allows players to connect from links in any web page, email or text as well.
