The game initially plays out like a traditional hand of baccarat, but varies once the initial hand expires. Thereafter, a lightning and thunder effect takes place, and certain cards at random are affected. These cards are then given a random multiplier, and players must match one of their cards (if they won the initial hand) to the lightning card. If they do, they score the multiplier of up to 512x their wagered amount. As with all Evolution games, Lightning Baccarat is broadcast from a studio, and can be played live on your computer or mobile device.
"Two years ago we launched the multi award-winning Lightning Roulette, which has become one of the biggest games in company history," said Evolution's Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter. "We followed this up with Lightning Dice, which has also been immensely popular. Adding multipliers and our Lightning theme on top of the most traditional game yet, Baccarat, was a natural next step in our Lightning family. Baccarat players love volatility and we are giving them all they can handle with Lightning Baccarat!"
Lightning Baccarat is available for play now at casinos offering Evolution's gaming library.
