Live casino supplier Evolution Gaming showcases Lightning Roulette

The Lightning Roulette game offers a side bet on randomly drawn numbers for a possible 500x win.

The game, Lightning Roulette, aims to inject more variety into a standard roulette game, with the addition of one to five randomly generated numbers, upon which players can make a bet.

It also seeks to boost the roulette experience, with sounds effects like lightning strikes, thunder and other dramatic effects.

Evolution is known for its pioneering approach to live casino, where live dealers based in a studio are streamed direct to the player’s device.

Complexity behind the scenes

Todd Haushalter, chief product officer at Evolution, said: “This is the most complex product we have ever done, but all that complexity is hidden from the players, who only see that each round, between one and five numbers are struck by lightning and given magnified payouts of 50x – 500x.

“To do this we combined digital random number generators with the Live Roulette wheel, which has never been done before.”

New Salon Privé for super-VIPs

Can an online casino ever replicate the VIP experience that land-based casinos can give to the super wealthy?

Evolution Gaming is trying its best with another new release – an exclusive Salon Privé with even more options for players.

They are aiming for it to be the most luxurious way to play table games online, and are starting initially with roulette and blackjack.

Haushalter added: “This has never been done before because it is so difficult to achieve operationally.

“We are offering players unprecedented levels of control over the game at totally private, single-player roulette and blackjack tables.

“From choosing their favourite dealer, to changing the cards to being in charge of the game speed, the players can control all of this and more. Our mission with the Salon Privé is to provide the sort of ‘white glove’ service that is offered in the private gaming salons of Las Vegas.”

Evolution Gaming supplies casinos with live casino games, and they can be found at a big range of operators.

They supply many brands including 888, William Hill, ComeOn Casino, and Genting Casino.
