Lighting Roulette is one of Evolution Gaming’s most popular live games hosted by exciting hosts who love interacting with players like you. Set in a game show-style environment with incredible sound and light effects includes all the familiar elements of live roulette – the wheel, dealer and betting options – but with even more chances to win!

How Does Lightning Roulette Work?

Lightning Roulette follows most of the same rules as European Roulette. But in each round, before the wheel spins, 1 to 5 lucky numbers will appear, which will be hit with multipliers from 50x to 500x.

From there, the game continues just like a regular roulette wheel, except that these lucky numbers help you win even more. If the roulette ball lands on the lightning strike number (multiplied) and you place a bet on the same number, you will win anywhere from 50x your bet to 500x your bet! Bets on numbers not struck by lightning will still pay but at reduced odds of 30/1. All other bets in Lightning Roulette pay the same rates as the standard game.

Lightning Roulette Demo

  • Start the game and wait for the current round to finish.
  • The dealer then gives you about 20 seconds to place a bet for the next round.
  • When the bet is over, the dealer turns the switch and 1-5 lucky numbers appear on the screen behind him. Each number corresponds to a multiplier from 50x to 500x. Then the dealer puts the roulette ball into the roulette wheel.
  • As soon as the ball stops, the result will be announced. All bets are settled and the next round of Lightning Roulette begins!

  • Tenths/Thirds (applies to 12 numbers) – odds 2/1

Lightning Roulette Rules And Statistics

The way the game works is that you place a bet on the outcome of the spin when the ball has stopped moving around the wheel. You can bet on even numbers, odd/even, red/black etc.

The only difference between normal roulette and lightning roulette is that if the ball lands on the lightning number you bet on, your winnings will be multiplied up to 500 times!

Lightning Roulette Tips and Strategy to Win

As with any casino game strategy, winning is not always guaranteed if you decide to use these lightning-fast roulette tricks. However, using these Lighting Roulette strategies can definitely improve your chances of winning and help tip the odds in your favour.

Here are 5 lightning roulette strategies you can try:

Bets on all numbers on lightning roulette

Bets on each number to guarantee one or more multipliers. The trick here is to stop when you get a big multiplier (250x or 500x) because eventually, you will start losing money.

Use results and statistics

Lightning Roulette allows you to view the results and statistics of the last 500 rounds. To view them, click on the “bar chart” icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Or use a tool like Tracksino to get better information. Read more about Tracksino and how it works. limit your bets

Bet half of your bet on odd/even or red/black bets (almost 50% chance of winning) and the other half on a positive number. About 50% of the time the bonus you make on red/black or odd/even covers your positive bet. You can play Monopoly Live with the same hedging strategy.

Bet positively

The biggest wins in Lighting Roulette are even numbers, so your best chance of winning big is to bet on one or more numbers rather than red/black or odd/even numbers.

Play Bonus

Many bookmakers in South Africa offer a welcome bonus when you register and deposit. Use your winnings to play for free, so nothing you win costs anything. You may have to gamble a bit before stopping, but it’s not hard if you get a decent multiplier.


This is probably the most important tip. Lightning Roulette is designed to be an enjoyable experience. If you bet more than you can afford to lose, the game will start to become frustrating as you chase your losses.

Set yourself a limit. With a limit of R100, you do not need to bet more if you have spent your initial float. When you stop enjoying a game, it’s time to stop playing it. For more details about casino and slot games, you may refer to our website.
