What is Lightning Roulette?
Lightning Roulette is a title by Evolution Gaming. Evolution Gaming is one of the largest and most influential casino software providers out there. A form of Speed Roulette that took the internet by storm with its new and then fresh feature, winning multipliers. It is worth mentioning that Lightning Roulette won the EGR Awards for the game of the year 2018.
What made this live roulette game extremely popular was the enhanced payouts, up to 500x your bet.
In our previous comparisons, we discussed lightning roulette in more detail. So, we’ll focus more on Mega Roulette.
What is Mega Roulette?
Pragmatic Play is a well known casino game provider. Their claim to fame are some blockbuster slot games such as Big Bass Bonanza and Sweet Bonanza. Moreover, after succeeding with their slots games, they decided to develop their own live casino studio. Initially, they started with classic table games, such as Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat.
After the success of Evolution’s Lightning Roulette, many live casino providers started to lose market share. So, Pragmatic launched Mega Roulette in February 2021 to compete with Evolution. In fact they launched 2 other games too in the Mega series: Mega Sic Bo and Mega Wheel. Mega Roulette features multipliers that are applied after betting has closed and is a form of speed roulette. Win multipliers are added randomly on numbers each game round and can reach up to 500x your bet.
Lightning Roulette VS Mega Roulette
Lightning Roulette is the original game that started this trend of multipliers back in 2018. Similar to Quantum Roulette that we covered in a previous comparison, Mega Roulette is the same game but with a different theme and background setting. The Max multiplier is the same at 500x. The game loop is the same with multipliers being assigned after the betting phase. One or the other, there is no winner or better in terms of features. These titles being so alike is due to Lightning Roulette becoming so popular. So other developers “cloned” the format and gave it a touch of their own taste of colours, style and branding.
You can’t go wrong with any of these titles, Lightning Roulette or Mega Roulette. If you are looking for European Roulette but with some spice to it in the form of multipliers any of the two are fine alternatives. Most of our recommended online casinos offer games from both live game providers. However, Pragmatic is restricted in some Indian states. So, if you live in state that is not restricted then you can enjoy both games or else you still can play Lightning Roulette.
