I incorrectly put 100 as the win for three balls, as opposed to 1000. Here is my corrected table with pays on a "for one" basis.

Balls Pays Probability Return
4 10000 0.000000 0.004796
3 1000 0.000071 0.070979
2 75 0.003939 0.295448
1 5 0.097170 0.485848
0 0 0.898820 0.000000
Return 1.000000 0.857071

A return of 85.71% equates to a house edge of 14.29%. That seems more reasonable.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Here is my new page on the Bonus Bet in Lightning Roulette. I assume it is okay to use your picture. Please note the attribution at the bottom of the page.

Certainly. Glad to be of help

You made one error in triplicate. The number of balls in the bonus bet payout says 4 balls for each of the payouts. Im sure that was a copy n paste error

The game will be a flop.

Roulette players are sometimes a paranoid and conspiracy minded group of people. The first time they lose on this game they will view it as being rigged.

Thanks for the permission on the picture. Good catch on that copy and paste error.

I just saw Lightning Launch roulette for the first time last night. I think it was at the Linq. Contrary to all posts in this thread, the game I observed paid as follows:

1 ball: 4 to 1
2 balls: 75 to 1
3 balls: 1000 to 1
4 balls: 10000 to 1

This equates to the same thing as previously reported by darkoz, except the player comes away with one extra unit for 2 or more balls, because he keeps his original bet.

This lowers the house edge from to 14.29% to 13.89%.

The attractiveness of this game is not likely to be the house edge data,
but instead the social nature of it such as for two couples prowling a
casino together or something like that.

They should have named it Group Roulette or something like that.

Its similar to those slot machines that have two chairs but one red button.
