A deal between Evolution and Scientific Games will see Lightning Roulette in Land-Based Casinos worldwide in 2022
In the last few years, the live casino games industry has seen massive development. Apart from many classic games that have been launched in live casinos the last few years we have seen a lot of new game variants as well.
One of these game variants was Lightning Roulette by Evolution which was launched back in 2018. This was the first roulette game with multipliers and become very quickly one of the most popular live roulette games online.
Lightning Roulette was awarded Product Innovation of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards, G2E Las Vegas and EGR’s Game of the Year on the year it was launched! It is no surprise that other software providers like Playtech and Pragmatic Play have later launched their own versions with Quantum Roulette and Mega Roulette.
Lightning Roulette goes from online to Land Based Casinos
The multi-award-winning online Lightning Roulette is now getting ready to launch in land-based casinos worldwide!
Evolution has signed an exclusive agreement with Scientific Games and Lightning Roulette will be the first live casino game that will make a transition from online to land-based casinos!
This is not the first time that Evolution and Scientific Games are working together. These two companies have long-term successful cooperation in European, Canadian and US Markets. In addition, Evolution live casino games are part of the Scientific Games platform and Evolution has developed live casino versions of Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Holdem which are games from Scientific Games.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said:
Lightning Roulette has been the biggest table game in online casino for years and we are thrilled to have Scientific Games bring it to land-based casinos. This gets us one step closer to letting players find Lightning Roulette everywhere they want to play. At Evolution, we have millions of players who enjoy the game, so there should be an instant fan base who are ready to play at their local casino when given the chance. When we created Lightning Roulette this was the first-time random computer outcomes had been mixed with physical real-world outcomes in Live Casino, and it was an instant success with players. This is also the first time an Evolution game has been brought into land-based casinos, so it is really quite exciting for us!
Rob Bone, Senior Vice President of Global Systems and Table Games at Scientific Games, commented:
We have watched Lightning Roulette’s phenomenal success in a live-dealer, online format and cannot wait to make it available on the gaming floors of land-based casinos across North America and around the world. With its trademark lightning strikes and big-win multipliers, Lightning Roulette is sure to be one of the most visually engaging and entertaining live table games ever offered. It provides a truly unique roulette experience for players and we are confident that in its land-based form, scheduled for go-live in 2022, it will be an absolute star attraction.”
This is all very exciting news for everyone in the industry and shows the potential of live casino games once again. There are more and more live casino games launching every year and a lot of them are proved to be very successful. Now that the first live casino game is making its way to land-based casinos we are expecting, even more, to follow in the coming years.
