About Lightning Baccarat
Lightning Baccarat is brought to our UK gambling site by live casino heavyweights Evolution Gaming. Joining their growing collection of Lightning-style top casino games, Live Lightning Baccarat presents Asia’s most popular card game in a whole new light - offering players a classic live baccarat set up with an additional twist, upping the winning potential of this live casino favourite massively as players could benefit from a Lightning Round multiplier of up to 512x your stake.
How to Play Lightning Baccarat
All games of Live Baccarat start with players placing their bets. Once all bets are made 2 hands are dealt, each made up of 2 cards - these are called the Player Hand and the Banker Hand.
The objective of the game is to guess which of the two hands will amount the closest to 9.
Each player can place a wager on the Banker Hand, Player Hand or on the tie bet.
Picture cards and 10s all hold a value of 0 and Aces count as one. All other cards hold their face value.
If any hand exceeds the value of 9, the total is adjusted by subtracting 10.
Winning on a bet on either the Player Hand or the Banker Hand results in a 1:1 payout, whereas the payoff odds for winning on a Tie Bet are 5:1.
For each bet placed during Lightning Baccarat, a 20% Lightning fee will be added to your bet - activating the chance to land an additional multiplier that could see you win up to 512x your bet.
Lightning Baccarat Special Features
Each time you place a bet in Lightning Baccarat, a 20% Lightning fee is added to your wager to activate the Lightning Round. Before each hand is dealt, up to 5 Lightning Cards are drawn from a virtual 52 card deck, each boasting its own randomly generated multiplier valued from 1x - 8x. If you land a win on a hand containing one or more matching Lightning Cards, your winnings will be multiplied by the indicated values - players could be in with a chance of landing up to 512x your stake by landing 3 matching cards that hold an 8x multiplier.
Following the success of previous games such as Lightning Roulette and Lightning Dice, Evolution Gaming presents 21.co.uk players with their latest addition to their Live Lightning portfolio. Like the previous titles, Lightning Baccarat adheres to the traditional rules of the classic live casino game but adds in a bucketload of additional winning potential, adding in a statutory bonus bet in the form of the Lightning Round where finding matching cards could lead players to wins of up to 512x your stake.
