When Evolution Gaming first presented their new live dealer product at ICE 2018 in London, the industry called it ground-breaking and the developer’s Chief Product Officer, Todd Haushalter, said that those seeing the game for the first time were “blown away”, referring to both industry experts and players. Mr. Haushalter added that the team’s goal was to create a player favourite, and seeing hundreds wagering on Lightning Roulette while other tables remain deserted suggests they’ve hit the mark.
Just weeks after launching Lightning Roulette is already one of the most played games. Having 500+ active players at any one time it’s already among the most popular live roulette games. It’s trailing only to “Roulette” and “Auto Roulette”, but already beating the Immersive Roulette variation.
So what’s so special about the latest Evolution’s launch? Live gaming leader has treated us to an extended Roulette game which not only offers the usual bet types and multiple wagering modes, but also randomly picks 1 to 5 lucky numbers with enhanced payouts. To further differentiate their new product, the provider has incorporated unique lightning and thunder effects which make the experience quite dramatic.
Visual attraction is, however, just an additional treat, while the game’s high win potential remains the real draw. Straight Up bets, covering the number which turns out to be one of randomly chosen lucky ones, have the ability to pay as much as 500 times one’s stake!
So What Is The Hype About?
All of the above comes on top of everything we know and love in Evolution’s Live Roulette. Broadcasting quality is as impressive as ever, intuitive interface packed with helpful options, and well-trained, communicative dealers make the gaming experience highly entertaining. Players get to use multiple bet placement modes and identify trends with the help of advanced statistics covering the last 500 rounds.
Todd Haushalter says Lightning Roulette is the most complex product the company has ever developed, adding that “all complexity is hidden from the players who only see that each round, between one and five numbers are struck by lightning and given magnified payouts of 50x – 500x”. In order to make this possible, Evolution has for the very first time combined a digital random number generator with a Live Roulette wheel.
As the new game gains distribution, online casinos are happy to support it via exclusive promotions. DublinBet is inviting players to “experience a brand new style of Roulette” with a 25% up to €500 Cashback bonus.
Mr. Green awards points for playing a selection of live dealer games and treats the top 100 players to a share of €10,000 prize pool. Wagering on Evolution’s new Roulette table generates points faster and thus makes it easier to qualify for one of the rewards. What’s more, top 50 Lightning Roulette players get to collect a portion of €5,000 reserved for this particular game. Make sure this offer is still available.
