Review of Evolution Gaming’s Lightning Roulette
Premiered at the ICE Salon 2018, Evolution Gaming’s new Roulette table has finally entered the market. Called Lightning Roulette, the new creation from the Riga based developer promises an amazing extremely lucrative experience for players who are always seeking more from Lady Luck.
But before you try it, read our detailed review first so you can better understand how this live roulette works.
Specifics and playing the game
For more than 10 years now Evolution Gaming has been churning out innovations (Salon Prive Roulette, Speed Baccarat, Blackjack Party etc) and surprising us each time with amazing and captivating versions. Lightning Roulette follows this rule. This new version places a lot of emphasis on the show element to attract players looking for something more dynamic and interactive. To sum up, the game is based on European automatic Roulette, which along with the classic system of betting and winning also includes Lucky Numbers with which one can win extra payments varying from 50 times to 500 times.
In more detail, the game starts off like any Roulette table based on bets and numbers. At this stage, you can place all the usual bets but remember that only full bets will count in the next phase of the game. This is hosted by a dealer, who with a microphone in hand, will put on a show lasting a few seconds. The black screen behind him lights up and one can see squares with the numbers on the wheel. The dealer presses a button which sets off a random number generator. This will show, with flashes of light, between 1 and 5 Lucky Numbers and the amount the winnings will be mutliplied by on each one (x50, x100, x 200, x300, x400 or x500). So if one of the numbers wins on the spin and you’ve placed a full bet on it, instead of receiving the usual 30:1 , you’ll get the amount of your bet multiplied by the multiplication linked to the Lucky Number involved.
The game’s interface and setting
This is definitely one of the main differences. In order to guarantee that each game has a unique show and will capture players’ attention, Evolution Gaming has opted for a unique gaming environment. Lightning Roulette games are transmitted from a studio specially set up by the developer in Riga. The atmosphere is luxurious, in an Art Deco style in shiny black with red and gold touches. The Lucky Numbers appear on the screem with flashes to make the show more interesting. The gaming interface has been developed in the same way. Fluid and well structured, it gives different views of the wheel, the dealer and the Lucky Numbers screen. When these are revealed, one can see bright flashes on the miniature version of the betting table.
Live Casinos equipped with Lightning Roulette
Launched in 2018, Evolution Gaming’s Lightning Roulette table is already available in the developer’s online partner casinos like Lucky31 Casino, Dublinbet Casino and Casino Extra. We’d like to remind you that these 3 live casinos have more than 150 live dealer tables. More than 15 online roulette tables are filmed from 11 land based casinos. All of that without even mentioning the great variety of live roulette tables from studios and online baccarat and blackjack tables!
