Evolution Gaming is always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in live dealer games. Nowhere is this more evident than in its “Lightning” series of games. These have been and continue to be some of the most popular live casino games online.
Evolution’s Lightning games have been a roaring success since Lightning Dice was released back in the summer of 2019.
How Do Lightning Live Games Work?
Each game is slightly different, but they all have one thing in common: a Random Number Generator (RNG) that assigns one or more large multipliers to game outcomes. For example, in Lightning Roulette, up to five numbers are randomly selected and struck by lightning before the dealer spins the wheel. These multipliers can be worth as much as 500x, and you guessed it, if you’re lucky enough to land on that number, you win the multiplier value.
Some Lightning Games, such Lightning Dice, have multipliers worth up to 1,000x.
Evolution Gaming – Popular Lightning Games
Let’s start with the first game that EG released in this series.
Lightning Roulette : #1 Evolution Gaming Live Roulette
If you enjoy making straight bets when playing live dealer roulette, Lightning Roulette will appeal to you a great deal. After you’ve placed your bets on individual numbers on the roulette table, up to five of them will be randomly selected as lightning numbers. Multipliers of up to 500x will apply.
In classic Evolution Gaming style, everything is done with dramatic effect. The dealer will pull a handle, the lightning will appear on the electronic screen, and the numbers will be displayed there. There’s no guarantee you’ll win a multiplier, but that’s part of the thrill of the game.
Lightning Baccarat : win up to 512 your bet !
Baccarat is indeed one of the simplest and most exciting card games to play, but it’s a whole lot more exciting when random multipliers of up to 512x are applied. That’s Lightning Baccarat by Evolution Gaming.
When you’ve accepted your initial cards, a Lighting Round occurs, selecting up to five cards. Multipliers of up to 8x will apply to them. If you happen to have one or more of the cards and win, you’ll benefit from the multipliers. And yes, multipliers multiply each other, so if you get really lucky and have three cards with 8x multipliers, and you win, you’ll benefit from an 8x8x8 (512x) multiplier.
In fact, Lightning Baccarat offers one of the biggest multipliers in the Lightning series of games. If you win a Tie bet with six Lighting Cards, your multiplier could be as big as 262,144x. That’s an exciting albeit improbable scenario!
Lightning Dice : The most exciting live dice game
Lightning Dice is a simple game played with three dice. Your objective is to bet on the total of the three dice after they’ve been rolled. However, they aren’t rolled in a standard way; instead, they’re dropped into the top of a perspex tower and appear at the bottom. It’s an awesome thrill to watch the dice bounce, shake, and roll through the tower.
However, before that happens, either one or several numbers will be randomly struck by lightning. These can have multipliers of up to 1,000x. The more difficult it is to make the number with three dice, the higher the potential multipliers will be.
