The EGR Operator Awards 2018 was held at the swanky Grosvenor House Hotel in London last week and Evolution Gaming was not going to leave empty-handed…
…Evolution Gaming, the leading global provider of live casino solutions, bagged the award for the ‘Game of the Year’ for the thrilling and popular Lightning Roulette live dealer game. For those of you who are yet to try your luck with Lightning Roulette, you are missing out on some great action. The roulette game is played on a traditional European roulette wheel, with a single zero and numbers 1 to 36.
Players place all their favourite bets…
…from red and black to straight up bets.
Unlike ‘normal’ roulette, the payouts are slightly less; straight up bets will pay 30:1 instead of 36:1, but this is because if the ‘lightning rounds’. Every round, before the ball comes to a stop in a section on that wheel, the dealer will pull the special handle and activate the lightning round.
Each round could see as many as five numbers being randomly chosen – the chosen numbers will then display a multiplier of at least 50x to as much as 500x. What makes Lightning Roulette so exciting, is the fact you can multiply your winnings by as much as 500x in every single round.
An example of how it’s played is as follows:
Place a £1 straight up bet on zero. If zero is chosen as a lightning number with a multiplier of 300x, you will win £300 for your bet.
It’s quite an achievement for Evolution Gaming, having beaten ten other shortlisted companies to the prestigious award. After collecting the award, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said: “We were particularly nervous with such tough competition in this category of Game of the Year and we are honoured that our peers in the industry and our customers have voted Lightning Roulette the Game of the Year for 2018. This is the second award for Lightning Roulette in just a few weeks, and we are very happy with the reception among both our customers and their end users.”
