Live Lightning Dice combines a simple Dice Game with Evolution’s innovative random Lightning Multipliers.
Unlike Super Sic Bo, where there are multiple ways to bet on the outcome of 3 rolled dice, Live Lightning Dice only allows bets on the total Sum of the three dice.
The lightning bit comes after betting is closed. Several numbers are randomly selected to have multipliers up to 1000x applied.
If you’ve bet on one of these totals and the result is that number, you can enjoy good winnings.
In this Lightning Dice review, I’ll cover how to play the game, the sort of Live Lightning Dice Strategy that works and ultimately, what I think of this game.
Before you start to play, there are a few things you need to know about Lighting Dice.
Once you get past the rather intense lighting and innovative way of “rolling” the dice, getting to grips with the rules is straightforward.
You place a bet on what you think the total Sum will be of three rolled dice.
Before rolling the dice, you can bet on one, some or all of the total possible outcomes.
When betting has closed, the Lightning process begins. One to several numbers is selected to have multipliers added to them.
The dice are released into the Perspex maze by the presenter using a switch on the wall.
The camera closes in on the dice as they tumble down the clear perspex tower until they hit the bottom, thoroughly shaken!
The camera zooms in to show a close-up of the dice to reveal the winning number.
Winning Bets get paid while the presenter replaces the dice at the top of the tower, ready for the next game round.
If you want to enjoy playing Lightning Dice, you need a strategy.
It’s not the game you can chuck money at and hope to win the big payouts.
You need an approach that will give you the best chance to enjoy yourself and maybe come away with a profit.
I’m not going to pretend you’ll win big. While that’s possible, the odds are stacked against it, as you’ll see later.
Using a Live Lightning Dice strategy will help you turn over your bankroll and put you in a position to come away with something. Maybe you’ll hit that 1000x payout!
I’m going to explain some of the mathematics behind the game, so you can understand the likelihood of the numbers coming in and what that means to how you should bet.
You can bet on three dice totals from 3 up to 18. You’ll notice on the betting grid the payouts that you’ll receive.
You can bet on as many totals as you like. Evolution even provides a “Bet All” button to make it easier. My advice is, never do that!
As you can see from the statistics grid, each Sum comes with the number of combinations the dice can make to get that total.
The more combinations, the better the chance of getting that total. The 3rd column shows the probability of each happening.
The value bets are on numbers 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13. All these numbers can receive a multiplier of up to 50x. Their base payouts range from 5x to 7x. So you’ll still get a decent return if these totals come in.
These are the totals that appear most often. In theory, you only need to hit one of the numbers every seven game rounds to break even (assuming you’re betting on just one number).
However, you’ll never win big money — you will turn over your bankroll a few times, giving a more extended playing session.
If you’re after the big wins, place a small bet additionally on numbers 3 or 18, as these can have the 1000x multiplier applied to them.
I’ve included a real-life example of the results history; this demonstrates how often the Sum totals are 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13.
Any total on the board can have Lightning Multipliers applied.
However, unlike Lightning Roulette, where all numbers can receive all multipliers, Lightning Dice multipliers are restricted to specific numbers.
To confuse matters.
The odds displayed on the betting Grid get paid in addition to your stake, which you get back.
If you win and a multiplier is active, you only get paid what the Multiplier is (this includes your stake)!
If you bet on 3 or 18, the best return to player (RTP) you can achieve is 96.21%.
The game averages an RTP between 96.03 – 96.21 % for the rest of the total bets.
The simple answer is no.
In lightning roulette, there is an equal chance of hitting a number on the wheel, and all numbers have an equal opportunity of receiving the top multiplier of 500x.
In lightning Dice, there isn’t an equal chance of hitting each total (see above), so you shouldn’t use the same betting strategy.
My objective is to have a long playtime, and if I can return a profit, so much the better.
My recommendation is:
Place a bet on 8 or 13 and 9 or 12 and 10 or 11. That’s three bets.
One pays 5:1; one pays 6:1. One pays 7:1. All three have a chance of up to 50x being applied.
If you get one winner every five rounds, you’ll break even.
Then for a bit of fun, I put a small wager on 3&18 — just in case the 1000x comes in.
Lightning Dice is a simplified version of Sic Bo, where you’re betting on three rolled dice. The lightning bit comes from multipliers which get assigned to the dice totals. The maximum possible multiplier is 1,000x!
You can play Lightning Dice at any Evolution Casino.
No real skill is needed to play Lightning Dice. All you have to do as a player is decide what the total of the three dice added together will be. The dice are “rolled” by being placed in a rather elaborate perspex tower and allowed to cascade to the bottom, where the dice come to settle.
The RTP of Lightning Dice ranges between 96.03 to 96.21 %. In comparison, Roulette returns 97.30% and Blackjack 99,50%.
There are a few ways to play lightning dice. I have worked out a few playing strategies that manage your bankroll while increasing your chances of winning. Take a look at my Strategies for Lighting Dice.
You can win by adopting a strategy that keeps your bankroll turning over while you wait for the big multiplier win. Any of my techniques will help with that.
The top payout for Lightning Dice is 1000x. This multiplier is only available on the Total Bet of 3 and 18, so that is three ones or three sixes. 4 and 17 are the next biggest with 500x.
You can use any device type to play Lightning Dice.
The mobile interface is friendly and uncluttered and works well in Landscape and Portrait modes.
As with all Evolution Interfaces, two playing modes are available depending on your connection speed and playing preference.
There is no free-play option for Evolution Live Lightning Dice. However, you may find a casino that sometimes offers a free roll during a promotion. I think I’ve seen that once.
Your best bet is to signup at a casino, load the game from the lobby and watch while recording the numbers you’ve bet on and the subsequent result.
The concept of random multipliers is very clever, as that is the hook to get people to the game.
Unfortunately, unlike Lightning Roulette, where there’s an equal chance of getting the big multipliers on the number you’ve bet, the same is not valid for Lightning dice.
The probability of hitting a 1000x win is tiny and is, in my opinion, not a sensible bet.
The value bets are 8,9,10,11,12 & 13. Wins on these will help you turn over your bankroll several times unless you’re unlucky. Stick to these numbers.
The studio initially looks great, but for me, the monochrome effect makes it difficult to bring into focus all of the different elements. It should look great, but for some reason, I wouldn’t say I like the studio look.
As for the game itself, I don’t think I’ll play live lightning dice again unless I can get a good bonus somewhere.
There are better alternatives, like Super Sic Bo or Sic Bo Deluxe.
Lightning Dice is very niche and doesn’t achieve the same excitement you get with Lightning Roulette.
