Live casino warehouse giant (as in, the people who actually operate a giant warehouse in the Baltics filled with live casino dealers) recently started a new game in a lot of the casinos they service called "Lightning roulette".
The game is played like a normal single 0 roulette with an automatic wheel and an annoying host that shouldn't be there with the added exception of bonus "lightning" numbers"
Every round after the betting is done and before the wheel land, 1, 2, 3 or 4 numbers are picked in random and are assigned an alternate payout rate of between 50-500 times (in multiples of 50) instead of the normal 36. This affects only straight up number bets.
Since they offer little to no info on how random this random pick is, I took the liberty of doing a little informal survey of 50 spins.
One spin had 1 number picked (2%), 12 spins had 2 numbers picked (24%) 35 spins had 3 numbers (70%) and 2 had 4 numbers picked (4%).
Of these 50 spins the multiplier distribution was:
x50 - 37% (51/136)
x100 - 46% (62/136
x150 - 6% (8/136)
x200 - 7% (10/136)
x250 - 0.7% (1/136)
x300/x350/x400/x450 - N/A
x500 - 3% (4/136)

When you just have to roulette and need slightly better odds, I guess...

So you bet every number and get a minimum of 50 for your bet? Obviously a scam.

No way this would last 10 minutes if legitimate.

No. You only get paid the extra multiplier if the ball lands on the 1-4 randomly picked numbers.
Right now that seemed to happen 13 times out of the last 200 spins.

If I remember right: In "Lightning roulette", A hit on straight-up is pay at 30 to 1, and not 35 to 1.

That is were the House-Edge come from.

Just looked at the rules. You're right.

Evolution just added this to their platform and I'm giving it a try. I've played airball roulette in a brick-and-mortar casino and did not like it. But that was at least 10 years ago and my game is a lot more sophisticated now. I'm testing it by betting the minimum amount on even chance bets and so far I don't have any complaints. It seems to be playing just like a human spun wheel. It's obviously fixed to put the ball in certain sections of the wheel but that really doesn't affect what I do because there are equal number of even chance outcomes in every section. The same is true for dozens and columns. What a can do is avoid the sections that have the heaviest bets on the inside but I never bet the inside. If this works out this will give me another wheel to play which is a pretty big deal. Right now I only have three. Evolution, Playtech, and Visionary platforms. Having a fourth wheel to look at is pretty exciting.

This is what the lightning roulette looks like. Kind of bizarre but I don't care as long as it's legit on the outside bets.
