iGaming provider Evolution announced Wednesday two launches within the group, as XXXtreme Lighting Roulette, -an "extreme version" of the company’s Lightning Roulette- became available; while its NetEnt brand released a new 70s disco-themed slot, "Funk Master".
In common with all of Evolution’s Lightning live casino games, XXXtreme Lightning Roulette combines live dealer gaming with a high-payout RNG (Random Number Generator) element. In the XXXtreme game, one-five Lightning Numbers with Lightning Multipliers from 50x up to 500x are generated and struck by lightning.
At this point, XXXtreme’s Chain Lightning effect comes into play, with additional bet spots hit by lightning, potentially making up to ten in total. The storm then continues with potential up for Double Strikes, which can increase multipliers up to 2,000x.
In an official press release, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, Todd Haushalter, said: “The original Lightning Roulette game is the most successful table game in the last 20 years of online gaming and it has already led to a series of Lightning games such as Lightning Dice, Lightning Blackjack, and Lightning Baccarat. Now we are giving players exactly what they have been asking for: more and bigger multipliers."
"We know there is a subset of players who desire a more volatile Roulette game and this is sure to give them the chance for bigger wins that they have been looking for," the executive added. "XXXtreme Lightning Roulette takes the entertainment and suspense to new levels in a beautiful black, red and gold studio setting that literally glows in anticipation of the dramatic gaming action that awaits every player.”

Meanwhile, NetEnt's new slot "looks and feels like a 70s dance party, with disco graphics that will get players feet tapping," according to the company. All symbols in this 8-row, 8-reel slot are shiny disco balls that fall into position through the Avalanche mechanic.
The main spotlight of this game is the Dancing Wilds. Whenever they form part of a winning cluster, instead of disappearing, they boogie on over into an empty position on the reels that are horizontally, vertically or diagonally adjacent. After it moves, the Avalanche feature is activated and the Dancing Wilds substitute for all symbols except the Multiplier symbols and pay the highest possible winning combination in a cluster.
Players can also enjoy a Free Spins mechanic, where the initial size of the play area can increase to 12 rows and 8 reels.
James Jones, Head of Business Development at Evolution, said: “What a fantastic slot theme! Funk Master brings the ‘70s dance fever back to life with a vengeance. Players will love the Dancing Wilds and the flashing disco balls. The team has worked really hard in bringing the groove to this slot and players are going to thoroughly enjoy this foot-tapping experience.”
