It's really tough to come up with new table games that anyone will care about in the online casino industry. Most players are focused on slots as it is, but Evolution Gaming has put together a new title for their live dealer games that has a lot of people talking, and it could be the first new table game in a long time that attracts a lot of players. It will debut at ICE 2018.
Introducing Lightning Roulette
They're calling their new game Lightning Roulette, and it offers a few things that make it different than the roulette games already out there. For one, there are between one and five random numbers that light up on each round, and these help players to have chances to win extra payouts. You can win between 50:1 and 500:1 at random on any straight-up bet that is hit by one of these random numbers, and lightning bolts with sound effects on the screen will give players an interesting visual effect in the process.
Other New Games Being Introduced
They aren't stopping there. Two more new titles will be shown off at ICE 2018 as well, and they're both styles of Baccarat. The first is Dragon Tiger, and the second is No Commission Baccarat. These games are pretty important because Baccarat is the most popular card game in most parts of Asia and many other parts of the world, and the whole key is to have a worldwide appeal for this company. It's a strategy that has worked out extremely well for them, so it's not surprising to see them expanding in this particular direction.
About Evolution Gaming
Evolution Gaming is generally considered by gambling experts to be the top live dealer software provider in the industry. They have an offering that can't really be matched with dozens of different games in more than a dozen languages. A big part of their success has been innovation on the table game front and working hard to make their games available to players all over the world. This includes the types of games they offer as well as the languages that they are presented in.
With the new Lightning Roulette game, we may be seeing an innovation that changes how roulette is seen and played. We'll have to see how the industry reacts, but seeing a number of copycat games by different providers by the end of the year would not be surprising.
