Although it is a very simple dice game, you can win up to 1,000 x the bet on it. Use is made of the famous Lightning Strikes, which we knew from Lightning Roulette.
In 2019 Evolution Gaming has already released several successful Live Casino games. Just think of games like Monopoly Live, Deal or No Deal Live and Super Sic Bo, also a dice game.
Lightning Dice is simple in design: all you have to do is correctly predict the total number of points of a roll with 3 dice.
There are 16 possible outcomes from the number of points with 3 dice. The lowest possible outcome is 3, and the highest is 18. In total, there are 216 possible ways to throw these 16 outcomes.
Every well-predicted outcome can get a big boost through the Lightning Strikes: random extra multipliers. Those Lightning Strikes can be enormously entertaining: with some bets, they rise to 1,000 times the stake!
It explains a large part of the appeal of Lightning Dice: even with low bets, you can win huge prizes.
How does Lightning Dice Work?
As you might be used to the Live Casino games from Evolution Gaming, there is an enthusiastic presenter who acts as a host and a showmaster. He cheerfully talks, jokes, and ensures that the dice are thrown on time.
Lightning Dice lives up to its name: the pace is swift. A new throw with the dice is done every 30 seconds. That may seem a little overwhelming at the beginning, but there's no need to play every game: half a minute later there's another chance to win big money.
You bet on one out of more of the possible outcomes.
It will not surprise you that you get a much higher payout on the number 3 than on the number 7 (149 : 1 versus 9 : 1). After all: the number 3 can only be thrown in one way, with 3 x 1. But the number 7, for example, can already be pitched in 15 different ways (1, 2 and 4 or 3, 3, and 1, and so on).
The dice are thrown into a transparent vertical container, and they start a journey through all kinds of fixed protrusions and moving parts.
This construction ensures that the outcome of the throws is always 100% random and therefore, it is not possible to cheat with the throws.
You can place a bet starting at 0.20 NZD. Of course, you can also bet more: the maximum bet is 2000 NZD.
CasinoFisher holds 3 numbers at a time, with a value of 1 NZ$ per bet. This way, you can spread your chances, and at the same time, you still have a chance to win great prizes.
Evolution Gaming likes to make it easy for its players: there is a handy Repeat Bet button that allows you to repeat your previous selection immediately.
Payouts at Lightning Dice
With Lightning Dice, the payouts per bet are closely related to the chance that it will fall.
We have listed all standard payouts (but NOT the possible Lightning Strikes) for you.
Keep in mind that with every winning outcome, you also get your bet back.
Payouts and Odds Standard Bets
|3 or 18 points||149 : 1||0,46%|
|4 of 17 points||49 : 1||1,39%|
|5 or 16 points||24 :1||2,78%|
|6 or 15 points||14 : 1||4,63%|
|7 or 14 points||9 : 1||6,94%|
|8 or 13 points||6 : 1||9,72%|
|9 or 12 points||5 : 1||11,57%|
|10 or 11 points||4 : 1||12,50%|
Lightning Strikes: Win up to 1,000 x Your Total Bet
Lightning Strikes are random multipliers that are added to the game. You win this multiplier the moment a Lightning Strike falls on a number you bet on.
Lightning Strikes are added to at least one outcome before the game. Although there is nothing in the rules about the maximum number of Lightning Strikes, we have never seen more than 4.
The lower the chance that the outcome falls, the higher the Lightning Strike worth
|3 or 18||999 : 1|
|4 or 17||499 : 1|
|5 or 16||249 : 1|
|6 or 15||99 : 1|
|7 or 14||99 : 1|
|8 or 13||49 : 1|
|9 or 12||49 :1|
|10 or 11||49 : 1|
Here too, the following applies: with a winning Lightning Strike you get your bet back on top of the payout.
Lightning Dice House Advantage and Strategy
The house advantage for outcomes 3 and 18 is 3.79%. The house advantage on all other numbers is 0.18% lower: 3.97%.
So if you want to reach the highest possible payout percentage, you will have to bet consistently on the numbers 3 and / or 18.
The disadvantage of this deployment strategy is that these numbers fall the least often of all possible outcomes. So you will have to take a long breath.
Furthermore, there is a doubling button available, with which you can easily double your previous bets. That makes it possible to apply a Martingale strategy to Lightning Dice, for example, by always betting on the lower half of the outcomes (3 to 10). Due to the Lightning Strikes, this game has a much higher variance than, for example, Roulette.
The use of a Martingale system is therefore extremely risky at Lightning Dice.
Can You Bet on all Outcomes with Lightning Dice?
It is possible to bet on all possible outcomes with Lightning Dice at the touch of a button.
It increases the chances of a successful Lightning Strike enormously. However, you also bet heavily: it will cost you 16 chips each time. And if the Lightning Strikes always fall on precisely the wrong (non-winning) numbers, then it can go down fast with your balance.
What does CasinoFisher Think of Lightning Dice from Evolution Gaming?
With Lightning Dice, Evolution Gaming knows how to give an ordinary dice game a unique twist.
The game is fast, easy to understand, and works very well. Due to the low minimum bets (you can play from as little as 0.20 NZ dollars) this game is very suitable for starting players.
CasinoFisher has a great time with Lightning Dice.
