Evolution Gaming Give Baccarat the Lightning Treatment
Evolution Gaming, the leading live casino software supplier have introduced a brand new vertical to the Lightning range – Lightning Baccarat and it’s packed full of impressive multipliers. This new Lightning game combines live play with high-pay-out RNG multipliers once again and is part of the company’s line-up of new releases set to take London ICE 2020 by storm.
Just like standard Baccarat, players need to predict whose hand will win by having the value closest to 9; the player, banker or a tie. However, the features of this latest addition are ever so slightly different. After betting time has expired, the Lightning round sets in with strikes taking affect in the immersive studio setting. Between one and five cards are randomly chosen and each of these cards is instantly given a random multiplier.
Players must match one of their cards in a winning hand to a Lightning Card to win one of the base level multipliers; 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 8x. The more Lightning Cards you have in a winning hand, the more valuable those multipliers become; up to 512x on player and banker bets and a staggering 262,144x on tie bets.
Evolution Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said: “Two years ago we launched the multi award- winning Lightning Roulette, which has become one of the biggest games in company history. 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!”
Available across desktop, mobile and tablet, Lightning Baccarat becomes the third Lightning game in Evolution’s portfolio, following the huge success of Lightning Roulette which one three Game of the Year awards in 2018. In 2019, Lightning Dice joined the live casino game series with a live dealer, stunning visuals and an immersive studio setting.
Every game round in Lightning Baccarat features up to 5 randomly generated Lightning Cards, all drawn from a virtual 52-card deck. Random multiplier will then be applied to those cards. If you win on a hand which has one or more matching Lightning Cards, the winnings will be multiplied between 2x and 8x. Multipliers can go a lot further than that, as we’ve already stated. Three matching Lightning Cards in a player’s hand could be multiplied by as much as 8x8x8x – giving that total number of 512x.
Tie bets are the big paying bets with multipliers reaching as much as 262,144x – or as much as €500,000, plus your bet! Lightning Baccarat is now available to play at Leo Vegas Casino; sign up and receive a bumper welcome package with just a click of a mouse or swipe of your finger.
