Lightning Roulette is an exciting game by Evolution Gaming, the same company that brought us classics like Dream Catcher and Monopoly Live. Lightning Roulette is an electrifying roulette experience that is now available to play at various bookmakers in South Africa. The game is based on a traditional roulette wheel with a twist, lightning multipliers, and in this guide we can going to explain how to play Lightning Roulette as well as how the game works.
The game of Lightning Roulette
As mentioned the biggest difference between lightning roulette and traditional roulette is the lightning round. The lightning roulette wheel includes the numbers 1-36 plus a single 0 (zero). In each game round from one to five “Lightning numbers” are randomly struck by lightning, allowing you to win 50x up to 500x your betting amount should the ball land in a number that has been struck. The aim in Lightning Roulette is to predict the number on which the ball will land by placing one or more bets that cover that particular number and hoping that lightning strike it and the ball lands on the struck number. It’s important to note that the payout on a normal number that is not struck by lightning is 30x, lower than a traditional roulette game.

How to win Lightning Roulette
After the betting time has expired and the player has placed their bets, one or more “lucky numbers” with “lucky payouts” are randomly selected and the ball is spun within the Roulette wheel.
- The ball will eventually come to rest in one of the numbered pockets on the wheel.
- The player wins if he/she has placed a bet that covers that particular winning number.
- If the winning number is among the randomly selected “lucky numbers” and is covered by the player’s bet on a Straight Up bet, then the “lucky payout” is paid to the player.
Lightning Roulette Payouts
The pay table on lightning roulette is the same as you find at traditional roulette tables and is as follows;
