Lightning Baccarat

Lightning Baccarat

Lightning Baccarat uses cutting edge technology and immersive gameplay to bring the thrill of Baccarat right to the palm of your hand.

This version of Baccarat also contains a unique feature which we will cover later on.

After all, why go to the casino when the casino can come to you?

How to play Lightning Baccarat

Lightning Baccarat is easy to play. Players compete directly against the dealer, rather than others at the table.

However, unlike other table games, Baccarat allows players to bet on whether or not the dealer will beat them by betting money on the Dealer hand instead of just the Player hand. Regardless of how many people there are, the Dealer and Player hands are the only ones dealt at the table.

After all players have placed their bets, two cards are dealt to both the Player and the Banker. The dealer will deal a card face up in the Player's box before doing the same for the dealer. This process is then repeated, giving both boxes two cards each.

Tens, Jacks, Queens and Kings are worth zero points - all other cards are worth their face value, and the ace is worth one point. If a total is more than 10, the second digit is the value of the hand.

For example, if you drew a 8 and a 9 it would be calculated as follows:

  • 8 + 9 = 17
  • 17-10 = 7
  • Your hand is worth 7 points

In order to win your bet must be on the hand that totals closer to nine. However, if the first two cards come to either 8 or 9 for both the Player or the Banker, this is called a natural win and the game is over.

Unlike Blackjack, it is not up to the player whether or not they are able to draw cards. Instead, Baccarat sees players stand automatically on totals of 6 or 7. Players are only able to draw a third card if their hand totals between 0 and 5.

Features and Benefits

Lightning Baccarat offers numerous features to keep the player engaged, starting from the moment you step up to the table.

The interface is clear and easy to use, meaning players can place bets without battling with sub-par software. Players can choose from the whole variety of betting options at a standard Baccarat table with just the push of a button.

As well as this, Lightning Baccarat introduces multipliers to the mix - if a Lightning Card forms part of either the dealer’s or the player’s hand, then any bets on that hand will be multiplied. To make things even more exciting, multipliers also apply to the Player Pair and Banker Pair side bets.

To pay for the multiplier prizes, Evolution has added a 20% Lightning Fee to all bets, regardless of the value. So, if you bet £1 on a round, the bet will appear as £1.20.

Lightning Baccarat is also open to all players from casual players to high rollers with its wide range of betting options, so there is something for everyone.

Lightning Baccarat Mobile Experience

It is important for a game to run as flawlessly on a mobile as it does on a computer - especially given that players want to enjoy any game when they are out and about just as much as when they are sat behind a computer screen.

That’s why Evolution have ensured that their games make use of excellent technology that brings the excitement of a casino to the palm of your hand, wherever you are.

Lightning Baccarat Demo Account

Lightning Baccarat offers players the chance to get to grips with the game for free with its demo account. However, it’s important to remember that while a demo account prevents real losses, it also prevents real wins.

No matter how many coins you walk away with, they’re not really yours if you aren’t playing with real money.

Lightning Baccarat Real Money

If you’re done playing around and want the excitement and ecstasy of a proper win, you can play Lightning Baccarat with real money.

After all, real money means real rewards - and the thrill is even better when it happens in real time.

Quick Facts

Some casino games - such as Blackjack - are named after their highest winning card. However, Baccarat is actually named after the worst possible hand that can be held, which is zero.

Most people have been pronouncing it wrong. Baccarat is actually pronounced ‘bah-kuh-rah’, rather than ‘bac-uh-rat’.

Baccarat is 007’s favourite game - this makes sense as James Bond’s creator Ian Fleming was a big fan of the game.
