If you are a William Hill live casino player, then you may, or may not, have already noticed the ‘Top Live Games’ section parading the new WH Vegas Mega Fire Blaze Roulette Live—the game is also tagged as ‘Exclusive’ in the casino’s live games lobby, meaning it is a branded live casino title exclusive to William Hill players only.

The brand new WH Vegas Live Mega Fire Blaze Roulette dedicated game title is available in the William Hill live dealer games lobby extending an existing partnership deal with Playtech to supply dedicated live studios and game titles to the casino. Playtech originally released Live Mega Blaze Roulette midway through 2021 as an upgrade to its popular Live Quantum Roulette title, and William Hill bigwigs love the title so much that the operator drafted it in to join its growing list of exclusive live table games.

In fact, Playtech originally released Live Quantum Roulette to challenge the rising popularity of Evolution’s multi-award-winning Lightning Roulette title around about the same time Pragmatic Play Live also got in on the act with its Live Mega Roulette title. Both subsequent titles are by and large a carbon copy of Lightning Roulette, which gained notoriety due to its popular straight-up bet multiplier feature.

Consequently, with competition rife between the 3 brands, Playtech’s Mega Fire Blaze Roulette Live is effectively an exciting upgrade to Evolution’s original. However, rather than adding random multipliers to random numbers on the roulette table, the Playtech WH Vegas Mega Fire Blaze Roulette game leaves the outcome of the multipliers paid to a bonus round, thus adding an air of anticipation to the gameplay. On top of this, unlike its predecessors, players can win multipliers via bonus game entry by betting not only on straight-up bets but on any inside bet. I.e., split, corner, street bet, and so on. If you are unfamiliar with inside bets, this ‘Live Casino Roulette Tables’ guide reveals all.

Why is Lighting Roulette being copied? I am not quite sure why Evolution didn’t patent the idea as Big Time Gaming did with Megaways. Not doing so appears to have left the door wide open for Playtech to come in with arguably a better version of Lightning Roulette, while Pragmatic Play Live is also in on the act via its Mega Roulette title.

Comparing Lightning Roulette, Quantum Roulette, Mega Roulette & Mega Fire Blaze Roulette

Lightning Roulette (Evolution), Quantum Roulette (Playtech), and Mega Roulette (Pragmatic Play Live) use a Random Number Generator (RNG) to pick 1 to 5 numbers on the roulette table. The RNG also selects a random multiplier for each number worth between 50x and 500x. This automatic process occurs after players place their bets. If at the end of the coup the ball hits a number on which any of the players that staked a straight-up bet with a multiplier wins.

To compare, on the Playtech William Hill Vegas Mega Fire Blaze Roulette Live tables, the same random selection of numbers occurs using an RNG. However, a key difference is that this process does not apply random multipliers to the numbers. Instead, it adds ‘blazes of fire’. Thereafter, if the ball hits a number hosting one of these ‘fire blazes’, then all players that staked that number enter a bonus round. And this is where the fun and anticipation begins.

100% Non-Computer-Generated Results: The initials ‘RNG’ scares some live dealer players, and I fully understand this. However, all coups are 100% random because the roulette wheel is still a live wheel hosted by a croupier. The only time an RNG comes into play is for the sole purpose of random number selection and multiplier application, which occurs after players bet.

The difference in Payouts to Offset Multipliers

As Mega Fire Blaze Roulette offers the chance to land the bonus game via any inside bet, to offset this, the game has slightly reduced payouts for each straight-up bet type. Comparatively, Lightning Roulette, Quantum Roulette, and Mega Roulette only trigger multipliers for players betting straight-up bets, and therefore only straight-up bet payouts are affected by being reduced to 29-1, while all other inside bets retain their traditional payout amounts. Check out the accompanying box found below for mobile readers and to the right for desktop readers, giving you the new payout stricture for this Playtech live casino roulette title.

XXXtreme Lightning Roulette: There is an upgrade to Evolution’s Lightning Roulette, which is XXXtreme Lightning Roulette. This upgraded version still uses straight-up bets as the main route to winning multipliers, with the key difference being that it offers far larger multiplier wins worth 500x up to 1,000x.


Bet Type New Payout Traditional Payout
Straight-up 29-1 35-1
Split 14-1 17-1
Street 9-1 11-1
Corner/Basket 6.5-1 8-1
Line 4-1 5-1
