Lightning Roulette is Evolution’s flagship and groundbreaking Roulette game, which fuses standard European Roulette with an RNG-based bonus engine that can boost the payouts of 5 straight-up numbers to a maximum of 500 times the bet.
Launched in 2018 it has proved to become their most popular roulette game. It has certainly influenced the development of “copycat” roulette games by other live casino suppliers. The most notable being Quantum Roulette from Playtech, Mega Roulette from Pragmatic Play, and now the new XL Roulette from Authentic Gaming.
This is not the first interaction Evolution has had with land-based casinos. Their Dual Play product which takes a land-based table and makes that available to online players has proved extremely popular, with Baccarat and Roulette both making that transition.
Evolution and Scientific Games have a long and successful relationship, notably in the European, Canadian, and US markets.
Evolution’s Live Casino solutions are part of Scientific Games’ platform, while Evolution has developed online Live Casino versions of Scientific Games’ Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em, as well as the MONOPOLY Live game show, created via sublicense from Scientific Games in partnership with Hasbro, Inc.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said:
“Lightning Roulette has been the biggest table game in online casinos for years and we are thrilled to have Scientific Games bring it to land-based casinos.
This gets us one step closer to letting players find Lightning Roulette everywhere they want to play.
At Evolution, we have millions of players who enjoy the game, so there should be an instant fan base who are ready to play at their local casino when given the chance.
When we created Lightning Roulette this was the first time random computer outcomes had been mixed with physical real-world outcomes in Live Casino, and it was an instant success with players.
This is also the first time an Evolution game has been brought into land-based casinos, so it is really quite exciting for us!”
Rob Bone, Senior Vice President of Global Systems and Table Games at Scientific Games, commented:
“We have watched Lightning Roulette’s phenomenal success in a live-dealer, online format and cannot wait to make it available on the gaming floors of land-based casinos across North America and around the world.
With its trademark lightning strikes and big-win multipliers, Lightning Roulette is sure to be one of the most visually engaging and entertaining live table games ever offered.
It provides a truly unique roulette experience for players and we are confident that in its land-based form, scheduled for go-live in 2022, it will be an absolute star attraction.”
Live Casino Comparer Comment
This is just the first live game to make this transition. It wouldn’t surprise me if we see something like Crazy Time make the same sort of transition or even the basic Dream Catcher.
There is definitely more to come, I’m sure.
