How to Play Lightning Dice

Lightning Dice

First there was Lightning Roulette. Now Evolution Gaming have introduced Lightning Dice, adding to their rapidly growing live Game Show category.

What is Lightning Dice?

It won’t take you long to get your head around this one (as opposed to some of their more complicated Game Shows like Deal or No Deal or MONOPOLY Live).

In Lightning Dice you are betting on the outcome of the roll (or rather drop) of 3 dice. There are 16 possible outcomes; 16 corresponding possible bet options, and with different payouts applying to each.

It’s arguably simpler to play than live Sicbo which, despite also involving the roll of 3 die, offers far more bet combinations.

A little spice is added to Lightning Dice with the application of random multipliers that supersize the payouts on select numbers, ala sister game Lightning Roulette.

How to Play Lightning Dice

To begin, simply place your chosen bet chip(s) on one or more of the 16 bet options.

Lightning Dice Bets and Payouts

Payouts applying to all the bets are clearly indicated on the bet selector.

Lightning Strikes – Random Multipliers

Shortly after bets are closed, a Lightning Round applies random multipliers to a random selection of bet options. These supersized payouts override the regular payout should that number come up.

Maximum multipliers that can be applied are as follows:

  • Bet
  • Total 3 or 18
  • Total 4 of 17
  • Total 5 or 16
  • Total 6 or 15
  • Total 7 or 14
  • Total 8 or 13
  • Total 9 or 12
  • Total 10 or 11
  • Maximum Multiplier

  • 500 x
  • 250 x
  • 100 x
  • 100 x
  • 50 x
  • 50 x
  • 50 x

After the Lightning Round is complete and all multipliers have been applied, the dealer pulls the lever on the fancy dice drop contraption, and we have a result, and if you picked correctly a nice payout.

Theoretical Return to Player

That old adage that simple, no-skill casino games usually offer inferior returns to skill games (assuming the requisite skill is used), definitely applies here.

Theoretical returns for Lightning Dice range from 96.03% to 96.21%.

96.21% is for the optimal 3 or 18 bets. The one skill you can apply to this game is choosing these bets!
