Renowned live casino game maker Evolution Gaming introduces you to a new exclusive Lightning Baccarat game! The new game has multipliers and Lightning themes based on the most traditional Baccarat game. The new, exclusive Lightning Baccarat game combines live play and RNG (random number generator) multipliers with a big payout and it is a new exciting feature of classic baccarat. The goal of the game, as in standard live baccarat, is to predict whose hand will be closer to the sum of number 9, Players or Bankers.
Lightning Baccarat – feel the lightning gains!
The game has simple rules, the game is led by a dealer and is played with eight standard decks of 52 cards. Players can place their bet on the Player, Banker or Draw. Ticket values are as follows:
- Aces are worth one point
- Cards with numbers from two to nine have a nominal value, ie. Worth as much as is indicated on them
- Tens and cards with pictures are worth zero points
Before each deal, players must place a bet on whether the Player’s or Banker’s hand will win the round closest to the sum of 9. If you believe that both the Player and the Banker will have hands of the same value, you can place your bet on a Draw.
In addition, you can place a bet on a Player or Banker Pair which will be paid out if the first two cards dealt to the Player / Banker are a pair.
A lightning fee of 20% will be added to each of your placed bets. Once your bets are accepted, the Lightning Round begins. During the Lightning Round, one of the five randomly “lightning” cards will be drawn. They are randomly assigned “lightning” multipliers, so your payout will be multiplied by the lightning multiplier!
However, unlike traditional baccarat, after the betting time has elapsed, lightning begins and the lightning effect between the lightning cards begins. A random multiplier is instantly added to each of these cards.
Players must match one of their cards in the winning hand with a lightning card to win one of the basic 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 8x multiplier payouts. The more lightning cards in the winning hand, the increase in the payout of the multiplier up to 512 times on the bets of the Players and Bankers and up to 262,144 times on the payout on the draw.
After the Lightning Round, the dealer deals two starting cards to the Player and the Banker. The value of the hand is calculated by subtracting the number 10 from the value of the hand which is 10 and more. If the value of the Player’s or Banker’s hand is 8 or 9 after receiving the two starting cards, it is called the Natural Sum. Then the cards are no longer dealt to either the Player or the Banker. If the value of the initial two cards is 0-7, the Third Hand Rule is used. This rule determines whether the third card will be dealt to one or both hands. The player always plays first.
The game is available on all devices, both on the desktop and on the tablet and mobile phone. All games in the Lightning series are set in a stunning black and gold Art Deco environment and have random lightning bolts in the user interface to denote high-paying RNG multipliers.
The RTP (return to the player) is an incredible 98.76%. Players have access to the phenomenal Chat option in the left corner, where you can talk to the dealer and other players.
