Evolution Gaming’s Lightning Roulette won Game of the Year at the 2018 EGR Operator Awards.

It was up against stiff competition from 10 shortlisted finalists:

  • Play’n GO – Sweet Alchemy.
  • Red Tiger Gaming – Laser Fruit.
  • NetEnt – Jumanji.
  • ELK Studios – Wild Seas.
  • Slingo Originals (Gaming Realms) – Slingo Rainbow Riches.
  • Realistic Games – Black Ice.
  • Pragmatic Play – Wolf Gold.
  • Yggdrasil Gaming – Vikings Go To Hell.
  • Quickspin – Eastern Emeralds.
  • SG Digital – Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold.

For those not familiar with Lightning Roulette, it’s a game of European Roulette that’s presented in a game show style.

An Auto Roulette wheel is used to spin the ball while the host builds up the excitement until the winning number is known.

Players place normal roulette bets and once betting has closed up to 5 numbers are randomly selected and allocated varying win multipliers. The top value is 500x.

If the number you’ve bet on is selected and then wins, your win is then multiplied by that number.

They key to the game is getting a 500x multiplier win.

It’s possible to use a strategy to play lightning roulette. While it’s guaranteed to get you a 500x win, it won’t playing guarantee that you’ll walk away from the table with a profit!

After collecting the award, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said:

“We were particularly nervous with such tough competition in this category of Game of the Year and we are honoured that our peers in the industry and our customers have voted Lightning Roulette the Game of the Year for 2018. This is the second award for Lightning Roulette in just a few weeks, and we are very happy with the reception among both our customers and their end users.”

The Game of the year category winner was voted for by operators shortlisted for one of the Operator Awards and the voting process was officiated by Deloitte.



About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?

Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?

Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?

Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?

Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?

After all that, would I play there regularly?
