How to play Lightning Baccarat

  3. 2 cards are drawn for each hand with each card having a value 0-9
  4. If a hand is valued 5 or above, then it sticks with the current value
  5. If a hand is lower than 5, a 3rd card is awarded
  6. Once all cards have been dealt, the hand with the value closest to 9 wins
  7. If a hand value is 8-9 then the hand wins automatically and the round restarts
  8. Side bets on Banker/Player Pair can be made that win when a two card hand makes a pair with both cards having the same value
  9. If the values of both hands are identical at the end of a round, the Tie bet wins

How To Win Lightning Baccarat

The way to win in Lightning Baccarat is to accurately predict the hand that will have a value closest to 9 between the Player and the Banker. The Banker has a slight advantage to win and has a lower payout of 0.95:1 compared to the 1:1 achieved from a Player bet. If you place a bet on either Player Pair or Banker Pair spaces, then they award a win if the bet hand wins with the two initial cards given at the start of the round. You are awarded a standard payout of 9:1 if either the Player Pair or Banker Pair bets win.

As well as the standard bets available, Lightning Baccarat features up to 5 Lightning Cards that can activate at the start of each round and add up to an 8x multiplier to specific cards. If any of the Lightning Cards are visible in a winning hand, then the multiplier is applied to the total win value. If multiple Lightning Cards are visible in a winning hand, then all multipliers are combined and awarded as a total multiplier of the win value.

Bonus features

Lightning Cards- After the betting phase closes, 1-5 Lightning Cards can be added with multipliers 2x-8x applied to the card value. If a Lightning Card appears in a winning hand combination, then the multiplier is applied to the total win. IF multiple Lightning Cards are visible in a winning hand, then the total multiplier values are combined before being applied to the winning value.

Player Pair/Banker Pair Side Bets- As well as the standard Banker/Player/Tie bets, you can also make additional side bets on the Player Pair or Banker Pair spaces at the far left and right of the betting table. These bets win when the corresponding Banker/Player wins with only the initial two-card hand given during the round. The payout for a successful win is 9:1. If a Lightning Card is active in the winning hand, then the total multiplier value is applied to the win value.

Game History- During play, you can check the results of the last 160 played rounds at any time in the bottom right corner of the screen. The table also keeps track of the number of times each bet wins including Player, Banker, Ties, Player Pair and Banker Pair.
