Lightning Roulette offers an electrifying roulette experience with a unique twist. In each round, one to five random numbers are struck by lightning, giving you the opportunity to win payouts ranging from 50x to 500x (49:1 – 499:1).
The objective of Lightning Roulette is to predict the number on which the ball will land by placing one or more bets that cover that specific number. The roulette wheel contains numbers 1-36 and a single 0 (zero).
After the betting time expires, one or more “lightning numbers” with corresponding “lightning payouts” are randomly selected, and the ball is spun on the roulette wheel. Eventually, the ball will come to rest in one of the numbered pockets on the wheel. If you have placed a bet that covers the winning number, you will win. Additionally, if the winning number is among the lightning numbers and you placed a Straight Up bet on it, you will receive the lightning payout.
There are various types of bets you can place on the Lightning Roulette table. These bets can cover individual numbers or specific number ranges, each with its own payout rate.
Bets made on the numbered spaces or the lines between them on the betting area are called Inside Bets. Bets made on the special boxes located below and beside the main grid of numbers are called Outside Bets.
- Straight Up: Place your chip directly on any single number, including zero.
- Split Bet: Place your chip on the line between any two numbers, either vertically or horizontally.
- Street Bet: Place your chip at the end of any row of numbers, covering three numbers.
- Corner Bet: Place your chip at the corner where four numbers meet. This bet covers all four numbers.
- Line Bet: Place your chip at the end of two rows where they intersect. This bet covers all six numbers in both rows.
- Column Bet: Place your chip in one of the boxes marked “2 to 1” at the end of a column, covering all 12 numbers in that column. The zero is not covered by a column bet.
- Dozen Bet: Place your chip in one of the three boxes marked “1st 12,” “2nd 12,” or “3rd 12,” covering the respective 12 numbers.
- Red/Black: Place your chip in the Red or Black box to cover the 18 red or 18 black numbers. The zero is not covered by this bet.
