The Game in Short
XXXTreme Lightning Roulette plays a lot like lightning roulette where 1 – 5 lucky numbers are struck by lightning on each game round to get a boosted payout of 50 – 500 times your bet amount. However, in this extreme version of the game, there’s a chance for two additional things to happen:
- Struck numbers can cause another burst of lightning to increase the lucky numbers to up to 10.
- The boosted payouts can randomly increase to up to 2,000x.
Like the normal Lightning Roulette, only single number bets (straight-up bets) are affected by the boosted payouts. All other bets follow the traditional roulette rules and pay accordingly to that.
Payouts, RTP and Volatility
To make up for the lucrative numbers that can pay up to 2,000 times your bet amount, single number bets that aren’t struck by lightning only pay 20x in XXXTreme Lightning Roulette. This payout is considerably lower than normal roulette where you would get paid 36 times your bet and also lower than the original Lightning Roulette where the payout is 30x.
The RTP in XXXTreme Lightning Roulette is, however, more or less the same as the other versions. It’s a high payout percentage of 97.12% for single number bets and 97.30% for all others. Thus, in the long run, you are expected to win the same amount of money.
The key difference is volatility. In XXXTreme Lightning Roulette this is the highest. This However means that your balance will fluctuate more. You are more likely to see your balance drop quickly, but can also get lucky and have it skyrocket to higher highs than any of the other versions.
I always find high volatile games to be a lot more exciting than low volatile ones as you have a chance of winning more. The fact that you can win up to 2,000 times your bet in XXXTreme Lightning Roulette is a big fun factor for me.
I also love that there’s a higher chance for more numbers to get a boosted payout compared to the predecessor of the game. There’s more happening in XXXTreme Lightning Roulette, and to me, more action usually means more fun.
The game is visually stunning with a neatly designed studio, a big screen presenting the boosted numbers and eye-catching lighting effects. This adds to the entertainment. So does the game host that regularly speaks to players, as well as the game’s powerful sound effects.
I find this to be one of the most amusing roulette games out there.
There aren’t much of strategies to use in XXXTreme Lightning Roulette and like all luck-based games, those that exist won’t affect your long-term chances of winning in any way.
The only thing that comes close to a strategy in the game is to place a single number bet on all of its 37 numbers. The purpose of this is to guarantee a boosted payout whenever a boosted number is hit.
Imagine that number 7 would be struck by a boosted payout of 500x or even up to 2,000x. The roulette ball ends up landing on this number, but you had no bet placed on it and thus, you wouldn’t get paid. Certainly, that would hurt. The strategy makes sure this doesn’t happen.
However, the downside of this betting pattern is that you can lose a lot of money quickly. Placing a bet on all 37 numbers is expensive and if no numbers with boosted payouts are hit, you would only receive a payout equal to 20 bets. That’s a loss of 17 bet units on each game round. Keep that in mind.
