Evolution has announced that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Scientific Games. Evolution’s multi-award-winning live online Lightning Roulette game will be available as a showpiece physical game in land-based casinos worldwide.
From Live to Land-Based
Evolution launched Lightning Roulette in its online live version in 2018. It was crowned Product Innovation of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards, G2E Las Vegas, and EGR’s Game of the Year.
The game is like no other Roulette game. It features a traditional Roulette wheel in a visually stunning TV game show style setting. This is a blend of both live and advanced RNG gameplay. As part of the traditional Roulette play, Lightning Roulette adds high-payout RNG ‘Lucky Number’ wins in every game round. These hit in the form of lightning strikes that illuminate certain numbers for multiplied wins on an eye-catching digital backdrop integrated into the game setting.
Strengthening the Partnership
Evolution and Scientific Games have a long and successful relationship, notably in the European, Canadian, and US markets. Evolution’s Live Casino solutions are part of Scientific Games’ platform. Meanwhile, Evolution has developed online Live Casino versions of Scientific Games’ Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ’Em. Moreover, it has created the MONOPOLY Live game show, via sublicense from Scientific Games in partnership with Hasbro, Inc.
“Lightning Roulette has been the biggest table game in online casino for years,” stated Evolution’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter. That’s why they 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, they have millions of players who enjoy the game. So, according to Haushalter, “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!”
