Lightning Roulette Game Background
Nobody does it better when it comes to developing immersive table and live games than Evolution Gaming, one of the leading providers of online casino games. In their repertoire are traditional (and not so traditional) iterations of blackjack and roulette alongside wheel of fortune-based games like Dream Catcher, branded games like MONOPOLY Live, and even titles based on popular TV shows like Deal or No Deal. There's no corner of the table and live iGaming world that Evolution has not essayed and mastered to create exciting player experiences.
Lightning Roulette Game Design
Evolution Gaming has created something special with this online table game. Load up Lightning Roulette, and players get shown a virtual rendition of a low-lit black and gold art deco studio, including the roulette board and wheel and two pillars that conduct electricity when lighting strikes the roulette board. The presentation is clean, elegant, and stylish. The action occurs from a first-person perspective. The music is ominous, at other times mysterious and quiet, until it builds up to a crescendo before waning again. Evolution has included several thoughtful details, such as the sound of the ball spinning around the roulette wheel and the voice of a virtual dealer reading out the numbers the ball stops at.
Lightning Roulette Mobile
Like all our online table games, Lightning Roulette is played on desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, and mobile platforms like Android and Apple. All that's needed is a stable WiFi connection or sufficient mobile data.
Lightning Roulette Rules
Lightning Roulette is played with a variant traditional European rule set. The objective is to predict the number on which the ball will land by placing one or more bets that cover that number. The roulette wheel includes the numbers 1 - 36 plus a single 0, or zero.
Place all bets and press the SPIN button. Lightning flashes and electrifies anywhere from one to five random lucky numbers on the roulette board. These then have lucky payouts applied to them. The roulette wheel then spins, and the ball rests in one of the numbered pockets. You win if the number is covered in your bet(s). If the winning number is one of the randomly selected lucky numbers covered by a straight-up bet, the multiplied lucky payout is paid to you.
Multiple betting options based on the European ruleset are available in Lightning Roulette. Racetrack bets are also available alongside standard betting options like red or black or picking a single number.
Inside Bets are bets placed on the numbered spaces in the betting area.
- Straight Up = chip is placed directly on a single number, including 0.
- Split Bet = chip goes on the horizontal or vertical line between two numbers.
- Street Bet = chip goes on the end of any row of three numbers. Corner Bet = chip goes on the central intersection of four numbers.
- Line Bet = chip goes on the end of two rows at the intersection between two rows. The line bet covers all the numbers in both rows (so a total of six).
Outside Bets are placed in the special area below and to the side of the main betting area.
- Column Bet = chip goes in one of the 2:1 boxes at the end of the column that covers all twelve numbers in that column.
- Dozen Bet = chip is placed in one of the three boxes marked 1st 12, 2nd 12 or 3rd 12 to cover the 12 numbers alongside the board.
- Red/Black = chip is placed in the Red or Black box to cover the 18 red or black numbers. The bet doesn't cover the 0.
- Even/Odd = chip is placed in one of the two boxes to cover the 18 red or black numbers. The bet doesn't cover the 0.
- 1-18/19-36 = chip is placed in either of the two boxes to cover the first or second set of 18 numbers. The bet doesn't cover the 0.
Clicking the Neighbour Bets option reveals a special oval or racetrack-shaped betting area that allows players to place neighbor and other special bets. Neighbour Bets cover specific numbers and numbers that lie close to it on the roulette wheel. Placing a Neighbour Bet is as simple as clicking/tapping a number on the racetrack. A chip goes on the selected number alongside those numbers close to the left and right.
The enhanced statistics option provided by Lightning Roulette is a handy tool. This can be viewed by clicking the game's toolbar and selecting the statistics button to gain useful information from the last 500 games played, including the top 5 numbers, alongside the 5 coldest numbers during that time frame.
