Mega Fire Blaze Live Roulette (Playtech)

Learn how to play Playtech Mega Fire Blaze Roulette. Which bets pay multipliers? How does the bonus round work? What is the RTP? & What are the Payouts? (Images courtesy of playtech.com)

The Playtech Mega Fire Blaze Roulette live table game gives you the chance to win up to 10,000x multipliers via a bonus round triggered by inside bets. There are also four jackpots and the game adds all of this with no additional pockets on the wheel.

It resembles live roulette games such as Lightning Roulette, Quantum Roulette, and Mega Roulette, but with some key differences. Rather than only having a shot at winning a multiplier via straight bets, Mega Fire Blaze Live triggers a bonus with multipliers via six-line bets, corner, split, street, and/or straight-up bets.

With all this going in, you will still play on a European Roulette wheel with a single-zero, which gives you the best odds the game offer. Also, this is not an auto-roulette wheel, as the live dealer (technically the croupier or game show host) manually spins the roulette wheel.

With all that being said, to make up for the multipliers available via the inside bets, the standard payouts are slightly less than you will find on traditional roulette tables. It is a small price to pay if you get into the bonus round and hit those mega multiplier wins.

In this Mega Fire Blaze Live Roulette guide, I will divulge all you need to know about how the game assigns numbers with ‘fire blaze symbols’ to trigger the bonus. Plus, there’s a full explanation of the bonus round as well as extra features such as the ‘fire blast’ and jackpot.

Mega Fire Blaze Live Roulette Gameplay Explained

Playtech’s Mega Fire Blaze Roulette is a jackpot table game with a bonus round that pays multipliers. It uses a European Roulette wheel with 37 pockets for numbers 0 to 37. You still have the usual inside and outside bets to choose from, but it is the inside betting options that are the key to triggering the bonus game where you could win multipliers worth as much as 10,000x your bet.

100% Natural Results (No RNG): The croupier delivers the ball to the wheel, and the wheel spin naturally. Therefore, all results from the coup are 100% free of RNGs.

  • Place your Bets: To begin the coup, you need to place your bets.
  • Croupier: The croupier, a.k.a., the game host or live dealer, places the ball in the roulette wheel.
  • Fire Blaze Numbers: An RNG now enters the action randomly assigning 1 to 5 ‘fire blaze’ symbols spread across numbers on the betting board.
  • Fire Blast Feature: The RNG may randomly trigger the ‘Fire Blast’ feature used to add up to 5 additional ‘fire blaze’ orbs to the board, so there could be up to 10 in total. This feature will kick in every so often, and almost always ends up triggering the bonus game.
  • Bonus Round: The bonus triggers if the ball lands on a number with a ‘fire blaze’ and one of your inside bets covers that number.
  • Payouts: As for the payout structure, all inside bets are slightly less than in traditional roulette games. This is to offset the multipliers via the bonus.

Inside Bets Trigger the Bonus: To win multipliers, you will need to stake any of the inside bets. ‘Six-line’, ‘Corner’, ‘Street’, ‘Split’ or ‘Straight-Up’ bets. If the RNG assigned a ‘fire blaze’ orb on one of your numbers, plus the result of the spin hits your bet, you will take part in the bonus game.

  • Maximum Multiplier: 10,000x
  • Maximum Cash Win: 500,000 CAD-NZD-AUD-EUR-GBP / 40m INR / 9m ZAR

After you place your bet, the RNG randomly selects numbers on the betting board, marking them with a ‘Fire Blaze’ icon. As long as you bet on at least one number on which a ‘Fire Blaze’ icon lands, and the roulette wheel produces that number, the bonus round will trigger. You will then be all set to win multipliers.

Stage 1 Bonus game layout & features:

  • When the bonus triggers, the studio’s background screen will bring up a 12×3 grid (26 spots)
  • The grid divides into 5 sections of 2×3 (6 spots – almost like 5 mini slots)
  • Each section has a ‘multiplier’ or ‘jackpot’ assigned above it (only important at the end of the bonus)
  • Multipliers are 2x, 3x, or 5x while no specific jackpot is assigned – it simply reads ‘Jackpot’ above the section

Stage 2 Cascades & Global Multipliers:

  • Each section will now cascade multiplier symbols (like a slot spinning)
  • There are 3 cascades in total
  • If a multiplier symbol sticks on a position, the cascade will reset to 3
  • The multiplier will remain sticky until the end of the game
  • Multipliers that run through the sections are 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, 15x or 50x
  • If no symbols stick on a cascade, the counter drops to 2, then 1, and 0 ends the game
  • The game will also end if the grid fills all 26 positions

Stage 3 Multiplier Payouts

  • 6-Symbol Sections: All sections with 6 multiplier symbols (a full section) now have multipliers & jackpots from ‘Stage 1’ applied
  • Multiplier sections: Value of the multipliers from all 6 symbols add together, and then the section multiplier is applied
  • Jackpot sections: Value of the multipliers from all 6 symbols add together, and then there is a spin to decide which jackpot multiplier to assign
  • Jackpot Multipliers: Grand 2,000x / Major 500x / Minor 100x / Mini 20x
  • Final Multiplier: The total multiplier for all 6-symbol sections accumulates for the final global multiplier

Stage 4 Your Multiplier Win (Global Multiplier Applied to your Bets)

  • Line bets (6 numbers): Multiply your cash bet by 1/6 of the final multiplier (16.7%)
  • Corner bets (4 numbers): Multiply your cash bet by 1/4 of the final multiplier (25%)
  • Street Bets (3 numbers): Multiply your cash bet by 1/3 of the final multiplier (33.3%)
  • Split Bets (2 numbers): Multiply your cash bet by 1/2 of the final multiplier (50%)
  • Straight-Up Bets (1 number): Multiply your cash bet by the full final global multiplier (100%)

Mega Fire Blaze Bonus Roulette Round

Order of play

  • Numbers receive fire blaze symbols
  • The roulette wheel spins
  • The bonus triggers if the coup hits a number with an orb that you staked

  • (4) All multiplier symbols in sections with 6 symbols are added together
  • (5) The multiplier from step 1 or a jackpot is applied to the total section multiplier
  • (6) The percentage (%) of the global multiplier applied is according to the inside bet type
Payouts & Betting Options – Inside & outside bets return on investment (ROI)

As all inside bets can result in a multiplier win via the bonus round, the payable accompanying this section will show payout amounts that are less than inside bets found on traditional European Roulette tables.

Outside Bets (payouts remain unaffected as these bets do not trigger the bonus round)

  • Red-Black / Odd-Even / High-Low: You can stake each outside bet in the same way as you would on a traditional live European roulette table. They pay even odds (2x) for any winning bets. For instance, if you stake € 1.00, you win back € 2.00 giving you a € 1.00 profit.
  • Dozen Bets / Column Bets: There are 3 column bets and 3 dozen bets. Column bets run the length of the board with 12 numbers in each. Dozen bets take up 4 rows of 3 numbers (12 numbers in total) running across the width of the betting board. They pay 2:1 (3x) your bet in return. For example, bet ₹ 400, and the return is ₹ 1,200 giving you a ₹ 800 profit.

Inside Bets (lower payouts compared to traditional roulette to make up for bonus round multipliers)

  • Line Bet: A six-number pays 4 to 1 (traditionally pays 5 to 1)
  • Corner Bet: A four-number pays 6.5 to 1 (traditionally pays 8 to 1)
  • Street Bet: A three-number pays 9 to 1 (traditionally pays 11 to 1)
  • Split Bet: A two-number pays 14 to 1 (traditionally pays 17 to 1)
  • Straight-up A one-number pays 29 to 1 (traditionally pays 35 to 1)

RTP, House Edge, Variance & Volatility

As the RNG assigns ‘Fire Blaze’ symbols to random numbers, and because there is no telling what the final multiplier from the bonus game will be, understanding the exact mathematical science behind theoretical RTP for Mega Fire Blaze Roulette is difficult. Overall, Playtech puts the game’s RTP at the same percentage as a traditional live roulette wheel with a single-zero, which is 97.3%. It probably does this because the multipliers versus the reduced payouts even themselves out in the long run. And as this is probably the case, there is a genius mathematical algorithm behind the game design.

Inside Bet RTPs Explained

If any casino game reduces the payout amounts, then the house edge percentages increase and the RTP drops. For example, with the straight-up bet paying a 29:1 return instead of 35:1, the house gains an additional 16.92% on top of the traditional 2.7% house edge. That’s a whopping house edge of 18.92% ‘or’ a theoretical RTP of 81.8%. This same principle applies to all the inside bets on Mega Fire Blaze Roulette. Why? Because each one has a 2.7% house edge on traditional live European roulette tables. Therefore, the reduced payouts across all inside bets equal the same 18.92% house edge. Are you still with me? In short, players will pull back the losses caused by the additional 16.92% by hitting ‘Fire Blaze’ numbers and earning multipliers in the bonus round. Hence Playtech still advertises the ‘House Edge’ and ‘Theoretical RTP’ at ‘2.7%’ and ‘97.3%’, respectively.

How often does the bonus round trigger? The game offers historical statistics going back 500 coups. From this, you can determine how often the bonus rounds hit. At my live casino, it shows 54 bonus round in 500 coups. That’s roughly a bonus game every 9 coups, which is important for some strategies outlines in the next section. Out of those 54, the lowest multiplier paid that I could see was x42, and the highest was 224x. On average, I would say multiplier of over 100x make up the majority.

Mega Fire Blaze Roulette RTPs

Betting Options RTP | RTP with Multipliers
Inside Bets (1:1 Payouts) 97.3% | 97.3%
Inside Bets (2:1 Payouts) 97.3% | 97.3%
Six Bet (2 Street Bets/Rows) 81.8% | 97.3%
Corner Bet 81.8% | 97.3%
Street Bet (1 Row) 81.8% | 97.3%
Split Bet 81.8% | 97.3%
Straight-up Bet (Not incl multipliers) 81.8% | 97.3%
Overall 97.3%
Mega Fire Blaze Live Roulette Strategy – Tips & tricks to help you make the most out of the bonus round…

There is no surefire way to beat a casino game. If there was, the casino would soon change the rules. Take blackjack’s card counting, for example. It is not illegal, but casinos forbid it. In fact, shuffling the shoe was never a thing in Blackjack until casinos realised that doing so would mean card counters would lose track of the ‘True Count’, which tells players when the deck is 10 heavy, and it is time to raise the stakes. Aside from that one surefire strategy to beat blackjack, no other casino game has a guaranteed strategy that will give you a profit. That said, this doesn’t mean you can’t apply a strategy to maximise your winnings chances. Below are some tops and tricks to playing Playtech Mega Fire Blaze Roulette live that you may, or may not, find useful.

  • Racetrack: Betting on sections of the wheel is a great way to play this game because racetrack bets are a combination of inside bets. For example, the ‘Voisins’ bet covers 17 numbers, all on the same section of the wheel. Namely, 22-18-29-7-28-12-35-3-26-0-32-15-19-4-21-2-25. They are also closest to the zero. You will make a total of 7 inside bets. These x5 split bets (1 unit each), x1 basket bet (2 units on the bet), x1 corner bet (2 units on the bet). There are also Tier bets (12 numbers) and Orphelins bets (8 numbers) that cover smaller sections of the wheel with a variety of inside bets.
  • Quadrant Strategy: This is one of my favourite bet types because it covers either one third (3-quadrant strategy = 12 numbers) or one fourth (4 quadrant strategy = 9 numbers) of the betting board. Both versions of this strategy give your numbers an increased chance of being in the right place for a ‘Fire Blaze’ symbol. To be precise, a 24.32% and 32.43% chance of hitting a winning number from the coup. All you need to do is pick an area of the board and bet all adjacent numbers using all straight-up bets or mixing it up with other inside bet types.
  • Bet on Every Number: This strategy isn’t as risky as it sounds as long as you are prepared for some high variance gameplay. You can cover every number on the board with all straight-up bets or a mix of inside bets. In my opinion, it is best to stick to one bet type. I.e., all ‘straight-up’ bets or all ‘split bets’ and so on. You can guarantee multiple ‘Fire Blaze’ numbers will hit your numbers. And every time the ball lands on a ‘Fire Blaze’ number, you will enter the bonus game. If you place 37 straight bets worth 1.00 each, your total outlay is 37.00, and you win 30.00 back every coup (29.00 straight bet + 1.00 bet returned). Your loss is 7.00 each round. Next, if we go by the statistics from the highlight box in the section above, showing 1 bonus round every 9 coups, then in theory, you have a total loss of 8 x 7.00 = 56.00 loss to make up when you hit the bonus game. With most of the bonus rounds in statistics box showing multipliers of over 100x, you could end up with well over double your money, so there is a method to the madness.

Bankroll Management: The ultimate strategy any live casino player can have is bankroll management. First, make sure your bankroll can accommodate your bet sizing. It is best to only commit 10% of your bankroll per session. Then, from this amount, you can determine your minimum bet per coup according to how long you would like to play. In short, please only gamble what you can afford, and gamble responsibly.

Alternative Live Roulette Games with Multipliers

The live casino scene has gone multiplier mad when it comes to roulette. With the popularity of this style of gameplay clearly noticeable, several live dealer platforms have created their version of roulette with multipliers. However, Playtech Mega Fire Blaze Roulette stands out because it comes with a ‘bonus round’, while most other similar variants use a system whereby multipliers are won without a bonus game. Below you will find a mix of competing games with multipliers directly paid out when hitting a lucky number and those with a bonus round.

  • Quantum Roulette by Playtech: 1 to 5 numbers will receive a multiplier. There is also a Quantum Leap feature that can double the multipliers, but this is always capped at 500x. As long as players have a bet on a winning number with a multiplier, they get paid between 50x and 100x their bet.
  • Who Want to Be a Millionaire Roulette by Playtech: An RNG adds 1 to 5 multipliers to numbers on the betting board at random. There is also a side game, which is for the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire bonus game. If players hit the bonus, the max win is worth up to 2,000x the triggering bet.
  • Lightning Roulette by Evolution: This was the first live roulette game to add multipliers to the gameplay. As with Quantum Roulette, players place their bets, and 1 to 5 numbers on the betting board receive a random multiplier worth between 50x and 500x. If a player wins, the player receives the multiplier immediately.
  • XXXtreme Lightning Roulette by Evolution: As Lightning Roulette was so popular, Evolution released this sequel. This time, the multipliers are worth 500x up to 2,000x and from 1 to 10 numbers could receive a multiplier. There is no difference to the gameplay, but to make up for the higher multipliers, straight-up bets pay 19.9:1 instead of 29:1.
  • Mega Roulette by Pragmatic Play Live: This game plays out in exactly the same way as Lightning and Quantum Roulette – minus a feature called the Quantum Leap.
  • Super Stakes Roulette Live by Stakelogic: This live roulette game is a mix between Quantum Roulette and Mega Fire Blaze Roulette. An RNG assigns 1 to 5 numbers multipliers worth 100x to 1,000x for the main game, which pays out multipliers in the same way as Lightning and Quantum Roulette. However, there is a twist. Players can also win 50x up 5,000x multipliers via a side bet, which, if successful, triggers a bonus wheel of fortune game.

Which roulette with multipliers variant should I play? You may find that it is more fun to play with croupiers from Playtech’s Quantum Roulette, or maybe the betting interface and camera angles are better playing on Pragmatic Play’s Mega Roulette version, or maybe you like the idea of Mega Blaze Roulette giving you a chance to enter the bonus round and win multipliers via any inside bet.

Differences Between Playtech Mega Fire Blaze Live Roulette & Quantum Roulette

Let’s begin with the similarities before highlighting the difference. Both games use a European wheel (single-zero) and a live croupier (game presenter) to operate the coups manually. Roulette numbers that come as a result of the wheel spinning are entirely free of an RNG, but they do use an RNG to assign lucky numbers that lead to multipliers. At this stage, the differences between the two games kick in.

  • Multipliers come from a bonus round: Whereas Live Quantum Roulette visibly assigns multipliers to numbers on the betting board right after the bets, Mega Fire Blaze Roulette instead assigns ‘Fire Blaze’ orbs. These orbs do not pay multipliers and instead trigger a bonus round, while Quantum Roulette multipliers lead directly to multipliers.
  • Bonus Round: Quantum Roulette does not have a bonus round. When the coup hits a number with a multiplier, players’ bets immediately have the multiplier applied. On Mega Fire Blaze Roulette, players will enter the bonus game where they can win up to 10,000x for their bet.
  • All Inside Bets Can Trigger Multiplier Win: On Quantum Roulette, you can only trigger a multiplier via straight-up bets. On Mega Fire Blaze Live Roulette, all inside bets can lead players to huge multiplier wins.
  • Max Multiplier: The maximum multiplier on Quantum Roulette is 500x, while on Mega Fire Blaze Roulette it is a huge 10,000x.
  • Quantum Leap Vs Fire Blast: The Quantum Leap will double all multipliers up to a maximum of 500x, while the Fire Blast feature raises the stakes by allowing the RNG to add up to 10 ‘Fire Blaze’ symbols across the roulette board.

Which game is better? There is a lot to like about both. Quantum Roulette is faster because there is no bonus round to slow down the play. However, if you enjoy game show style bonus games pinned onto traditional roulette, and an increased chance of hitting a ‘lucky number’, Mega Fire Blaze Roulette is the better option.

Quantum Roulette Vs Mega Fire Blaze Roulette

  • RNG adds 1 to 10 multipliers per coup

  • Straight Bet Pays 19.9:1
