Evolution’s XXXtreme Lightning Roulette

Evolution was the first live casino developer (as usual) to ramp up the traditional live roulette experience by adding random multipliers to straight-up bets. That was on Lightning Roulette, a live casino title that has gone on to win industry awards such as the Product Innovation of the Year at the 2018 Global Gaming Awards, while it is consistently among the most played casino titles (including video slots) at the online casinos. The appeal is the multipliers of up to 500x the stake that randomly apply to single number bets, which are otherwise known as straight-up bets.

The success of Lightning Roulette led to other live providers such as Playtech Live (Quantum Roulette) and Pragmatic Play Live (Mega Roulette) launching their own variations of this popular gameshow-style variation of roulette.

However, Evolution is now taking this kind of live casino title to the next level. In fact, you could call this an extreme level, as the live casino specialist has another multiplier-fuelled live roulette title soon to hit the online casinos. During Evolution’s 2022 Online Event, the firm revealed it was launching XXXtreme Lightning Roulette at some point this year!

Now, while we do not know the full details of this title, we can at least fill you in with what we do know. Essentially, this is going to be an even more volatile version of Lightning Roulette with bigger but less frequent multiplier wins!

During the Evolution Online Event, the firm also revealed a number of other new live casino titles coming our way. This included Gold Bar Roulette, Crazy Coin Flip, and Monopoly Big Baller. The latter excites me the most, as it will be a combination of Mega Ball and Monopoly Live!

How Extreme Will XXXtreme Lightning Roulette Actually Be?

Simply put, Evolution will put the multiplier aspect of Lighting Roulette into overdrive. We already know that you can win land multipliers of between 50x and 500x your stake when placing straight-up bets on the standard variation of Lightning Roulette. However, what if we told you, you could win four times that multiplier on XXXtreme Lightning Roulette?

Evolution has added Chain Lightning Multipliers and a Double Strikes mechanic to XXXtreme Lightning Roulette. Those features will turn an already volatile game into one that really could generate some huge wins!

As with the standard version, up to five randomly chosen numbers will receive a random multiplier of between 50x and 500x. However, Chain Lightning can also strike randomly, which adds up to a further 9 multipliers to the single numbers on the roulette table. Just when you thought that was enough, a Double Flash may occur, which further increases the multiplier values of those already on the board! That is where the game can generate multipliers up to a whopping 2,000x your stake.

Who Will Lighting Roulette Appeal To?

Well, as one of the iGaming industries’ most popular titles, we expect that fans of Lightning Roulette will instantly love this souped-up variation of an already souped-up version of roulette! However, with multiplier roulette, standard pay-outs of numbers are lower than standard variations of live roulette. This is to help cover the cost of those multipliers. This lowers the RTP and, therefore, may turn traditional roulette players away. That said, if you like to take a few risks and enjoy high variance live casino games, XXXtreme Live Roulette is a game that is right up your street!

We will keep our ears to the ground and as soon as we know the release date of this hugely anticipated title, will be the first to let you know. Evolution is releasing Peek Baccarat next week, so perhaps this has been earmarked as the next release after that one!
