Lightning Cards and Payout multipliers
The Lightning Baccarat random multipliers that can appear on the cards are 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 8x.
There are some differences in how multipliers work on Lightning Baccarat compared to other games and this has to do mainly with the fact that baccarat is a card game.
The random multipliers are allocated to any of the cards from the deck.
This means that there is potential for up to 3 cards to have multipliers! So if all three matching cards get multipliers you can have a total multiplier that could go as high as 8x8x8 = 512x!
