First-Person Lightning Baccarat by Evolution Gaming

First-Person Lightning Baccarat is an exhilarating variation of the popular live Lightning Baccarat game, developed by the renowned Evolution Gaming. While retaining the core mechanics of traditional baccarat, this game adds an exciting twist with lightning strike multipliers that can multiply winnings up to a staggering 262,144 times the initial bet.

Random lightning strikes occur as the game is played, assigning specific card multipliers ranging from 2x to 8x. If the winning hand includes any of these lightning-struck cards, the corresponding multipliers amplify the payout. Experience this adrenaline-pumping game at 55BMW Casino.

First-Person Lightning Baccarat Rules

Knowing the rules is important for playing games well. In First-Person Lightning Baccarat, the rules decide how you bet, how the cards are given out, how we find out who wins, and what we do in certain situations, like when a natural or a third card is drawn.

  1. First-Person Lightning Baccarat uses eight standard decks of 52 cards. Here’s how the card values work:
Card Type Value
Aces 1 point each
Cards from 2 to 9 Face numbers
10s and face cards 0 points
  1. After shuffling the cards, some are removed from play. At the beginning of a new game, one card is shown. The number of cards removed depends on the value of this card. For 10s and face cards, 10 cards are removed. These removed cards are placed in a discard holder.
  2. In the main game of Baccarat, only the number on each card matters, not the suit (Hearts, Spades, Clubs, or Diamonds).
  3. Before the game starts, you need to bet between the Player and the Banker will win by getting a score closest to 9. You can also bet on the game ending in a Tie. This happens when both the Player and Banker have the same score.
  4. You can also place side bets on the first two cards dealt to the Player or Banker, which will be a pair.
  5. Each bet you place includes a 20% fee. For example, if you bet 5, a 20% fee of 1 is added, making your total bet 6. This total will be shown on your screen.

First-Person Lightning Baccarat Key Features

Key features enhance the gaming experience and can significantly impact gameplay. In this variation of Baccarat, introducing lightning strikes and multipliers adds an exciting dimension to the traditional game. 

Lightning Round

Once bets are placed, the exciting Lightning Round starts. In this round, between one and five random cards from a virtual 52-card deck become “Lightning cards” with random multipliers of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 8x. If the winning hand has any lightning-struck cards, the payout gets multiplied by those multipliers. For example, if a winning hand has a lightning card with a 4x multiplier, the payout becomes four times bigger. 

If multiple lightning cards land in the same bet spot, their multipliers multiply together, leading to huge potential payouts. Imagine getting a 5x multiplier and an 8x multiplier on the same winning bet – that’s a combined 40x multiplier on the payout!

Player’s Hand

Player’s Initial Two Card Hand Meaning
0-1-2-3-4-5 The player draws a third card
6-7 Player stands.
8-9  No card on either hand.

Banker’s Hand

Banker’s initial two-card hand No third card 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
0 D D D D D D D D D D D

6 S S S S S S S D D S S
7 S S S S S S S S S S S
8 S S S S S S S S S S S
9 S S S S S S S S S S S

In the game, D is Draw, and S is Stand. If the Player’s hand stands on a total of 6 or 7, the Banker must respond based on their own hand’s total. Specifically, the Banker is required to draw another card if their hand totals 3, 4, or 5 but must stand if it totals 6. The objective for the Player and the Banker is to achieve a hand closest to a total of 9 to win. 

Side Bets

P Pair: This bet wins if the first two cards given to the player are a pair and can’t be more than 20% of the main bet if 312 cards are used.

B Pair: This bet wins if the first two cards given to the Banker are a pair and cannot exceed 20% of the main bet when 312 cards are in play.

Tie 5:1 (Up to Php 25,000,000)
P Pair 9 – 576:1

If the Banker wins, you get back 95% of your bet, and there’s a limit on how much you can win for that round.
