About Lightning Baccarat

The lightning brand of games particularly impressed with the release of Lightning Roulette and immediately shot up to become one of the most popular Live Casino Games in our library.

Baccarat is played from an 8-card deck and the decks have similar card values to that of our Live Blackjack, the main differences are that Aces are only worth 1 point and the face cards are worth 0. Players can place bets of either player, banker, tie or other side bets that are available. Each hand contains two cards and is scored with a total of 0 and 9. If the total is 10+, the tens column isn’t used and the score is simply the units that come afterwards. What is the difference between live games and Lightning games? Well, it is fairly simple, as Lightning games offer the opportunities for massive multipliers, certain sections will provide players with increased odds if they choose it. For example, players will add 20% of their stake to their spin to potentially activate the Lightning feature in this game, while Lightning Roulette adds multipliers to certain numbers and if they come off, players receive that total win plus the multiplier.

Extra cards

Hands will receive an extra card if they don’t match a certain criteria. They are:

Rule 1: If either hand has a “natural” (8 or 9) neither hand will receive an extra card.

Rule 2: If the player hand is either a 6 or 7, the hand stands. However, if it has less than 6, a third card will be added.

Rule 3: If the player hand is a 6 or 7, the banker hand adds an additional card if the total is lower than 5. If it is a 6 or 7, the hand stands.

If the player hand draws a third card

Rule 1: - If the dealer hand has a 7 or better, it stands.

Rule 2: - If the dealer hand has a 6, the hand stands unless the player hand has a 6 or 7, in which case the dealer hand is assigned a new card.

Rule 3: - The dealer hand can draw with a total of 5 or 4 as long as the player hand drew a certain number.

Rule 4 - If the dealer hand has a 3, it only stands if the player hand has an 8. Otherwise, the hand draws a third card.

Rule 5 - If the dealer hand has 2, 1 or 0, it will always be given another card.

Bet Types


If you select the player bet and you win, you will be paid out at odds of evens. Therefore, if you place a £5 bet, you will be returned your £5 as well as another £5.


If you bet on the dealer hand and it wins, you will be paid out at 19/20 odds. So for example, if you placed a £5 bet and won, you will be returned your £5 stake with £4.75 as a win.


The tie bet pays off at a high 8/1, so if you place a £5 stake on a tie and it comes off, you will win £40 alongside your £5 stake.

Other Baccarat variants

Live Speed Baccarat - Baccarat is played at ⅔’s the speed meaning that the game play at an intense speed.

Live Baccarat Squeeze - A slower rendition where the dealer reveals each card in order to add suspense, this is the version closest to that in land casinos.

No Commission Baccarat - In this rendition of Baccarat, there is no commission taken on the winning banker bets.
