of the most popular online casino games is Lightning Roulette, which appeared
in many live casinos in March 2018. Even though the game is pretty much the
same as the standard roulette, it has its particularities, like the unique features
– the Lucky Numbers. This way, it gained a lot of popularity.
Lightning Roulette has the same European Roulette basic features, with the live
dealer, the live roulette wheel and the same red and black numbers. The players
still have to place their bets, as many numbers as they want, to guess where will
the ball land once the wheel stops spinning.
special feature of having the lucky numbers improves a lot the payout on the
straight-up number. Regarding the usual straight-up wins without the multiplier
applied, these pay 30:1, comparing to 35:1 for the normal roulette.
game is available on many online casinos. For example, Unibet Casino offers the revolutionized
roulette online game produced by Evolution Gaming, where in each game some
lucky numbers are struck by a lightning effect and the payouts are multiplied
between 50x and 500x.

How to have the
best chances of winning?

after the multiplier through the lightning effect is something unique.
are two spins, both of them after the bets are placed and closed. The first one
is for the lucky multiplied numbers and the multipliers, which are randomly
selected. The other one is the classic spin to select the final 1 to 36 winning
round, there are between one and five lucky numbers which are struck by
lightning and thus give multiplied payouts of 50x, 100x, 200x, 300x, 400x, or 500x.
So, if the ball lands on a lucky number and if a players has made a straight-up
bet to that number, he gets to win the lucky payout of between 50 and 500 times
the bet. The highest win is 530 times the betting number (30x plus 500x).
to hit those big numbers? Well, that is mathematically speaking just chance and
statistic, because it all resumes to that. The reason is that all the lucky
numbers, the amount of these lucky numbers and the amounts of the lucky payouts
are generated randomly.
The Random Number Generator does all the work
when choosing which are the lucky numbers, how many of them, and which is the
payout. To make it clear: The results cannot be manually controlled or
influenced. There are external audit companies which check licensed online
casinos for fairness and safety, sometimes even when the games are live, so rigging
is out of the question.
there is not a precise winning strategy. The answer to how to get the best
winning chances is simply playing the game. Even though the player would hit
the number in the regular spin, it would still have a chance between 1 in 36
and 5 in 36 to be the winner of a lucky lightning-hit number. OK, so a 30:1 paying for a straight-up
number bet lowers the RTP considerably, but increasing the chance for a
final substantial win balances the game.
One more thing to add is that Lightning Roulette
by Evolution Gaming has been awarded Product Innovation of the Year at the
Global Gaming Awards, G2E Las Vegas and EGR’s Game of the Year 2018, as voted by the operators of the sector.
