We look into some basic tips and strategies for new Lightning Roulette players.
Lightning Roulette is a fast-paced, game-show style variation of European Roulette. The game features live dealers, massive multipliers and the chance to win up to R5 million with Hollywoodbets.
While the game may not appeal to the Roulette “purists”, Lightning Roulette is certainly making an impact on the South African casino game scene. It’s arguably one of the most popular games offered by Evolution, and it’s easy to see why.
The production quality, the world-class studio and the entertaining presenters make for an incredibly immersive experience. The fact that punters can play for as little as R2, makes it a great introduction for new casino game players.
When it comes to Lightning Roulette, there are some tips and tricks that can make your betting experience more enjoyable. However, there is no way to guarantee that you will win.
Only play straight up bets
If you’re someone who likes to play split, street, corner, line or any of the outside bets; you’re better off playing one of the more traditional Roulette games available with Hollywoodbets.
This is because the multipliers are only applied to numbers 0 – 36. These can range from as low as 50x right the way up to 500x – this is where the big wins happen. A stake of R5 with a 500x multiplier can land you a massive R2 500!
Make use of French bets
A lot of newer Roulette players aren’t aware of the three French bets that are available. Each of these covers a significant portion of the wheel, and allows you to cover either 12, 17 or eight numbers.
Take a look at each of the numbers covered by each of the three French bets below:
- Le Tiers du Cylindre (Tiers) -12 numbers (27, 13, 36, 33, 16, 8, 11, 30, 10, 5, 23, and 24)
- Voisins du Zero (Voisins) – 17 numbers (25, 22, 2, 18, 21, 29, 4, 7, 28, 19, 32, 35, 12, 15, 0, 3, and 26)
- Orphelins – 8 numbers (1, 9, 17, 31, 6, 34, 20, and 14)
Stay disciplined and only bet what you can afford
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 becoming frustrating as you chase your losses.
Set yourself a limit. If that limit is R100, then don’t take any more bets if you exhaust your initial float. As soon as you stop enjoying the game, then it’s time to stop playing.
