Lightning Baccarat differs from standard Baccarat by the attractive live dealer and the many multipliers with which you can receive large payouts.
As soon as you start the game, you will see an attractive dealer in a red dress sitting at a gold table. Extra spectacle is added to the game thanks to the beautiful visual effects and the beautiful colour scheme of the studio.
Lightning Baccarat does not use as many different cameras as Lightning Dice. You will therefore not see the camera zoom in and out as often. This is because the table is clearly visible from the standard front view.
If you have ever played standard Baccarat, you will have no problem with the main objective of this game. You have to predict who will win the round: the player or the banker. You do this by having a hand value closest to 9.
How do you play Lightning?
Before placing your bets, you must know the values of the cards. The dealer pulls the cards from a shoe with 8 shuffled decks. Some cards keep their face values and other cards are assigned different values and rankings.
Aces are in the lowest place and are worth 1 point each. Cards from 2 to 9 are valued based on their numerical face values. Kings, Queens, Jacks and tens are all worth 0 points. The colors of the cards do not affect the way a hand is formed. Only the numerical values count.
Players are given a betting window to bet on the outcome of the round. They can bet on the banker’s winnings, the player’s hand or a tie. The hand with a value closest to 9 wins. If you win big, flashes of lightning will be displayed on the screen.
Before the game starts, participants place their bets and accept the 20% Lightning fee. Once the bets have been placed, a special Lightning round will take place. During this round, 1 to 5 random cards are drawn from a 52-card digital deck. These are the Lightning cards. These cards are immediately assigned multipliers of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 8x.
If your hand contains one of the drawn Lightning cards, you can take advantage of the multipliers, provided your bet wins. If you have multiple cards in your hand that match the Lightning cards, you will receive increased multipliers and thus even bigger payouts.
After the Lightning round, the dealer will draw the cards and deal two cards to the player and the banker. Each hand value is calculated. If the value is greater than 10, only the value of the second digit counts. For example: 9 + 7 = 16, so the value of the hand is 6. If the player or banker has a hand that is worth 8 or 9, no more cards are dealt.
