Baccarat is renowned as a table game for high rollers, and therefore it's no surprise that it was one of the first casino games offered, by several online casino establishments, in a LIVE dealer format. Most LIVE dealer casinos offer single-player baccarat or multi-seat baccarat tables. Players simply need to bet on the Banker, the Player, or Tie and the LIVE dealer will take care of the rest. Recently, there has been a handful of software providers that started offering a range of different baccarat variations. EntwineTech is one of these leading software providers, offering 8 different LIVE baccarat variations, each with their own unique set of features to reach a bigger audience.
This Malta-based software company has over a decade of industry experience and since its inception has launched eight LIVE dealer baccarat variations, including Super 6 baccarat, Super baccarat, Dragon Phoenix baccarat, Points baccarat, Dragon Bonus Baccarat, Baccarat Pair, Traditional baccarat, and VIP baccarat.
Super 6 Baccarat
Super 6 Baccarat, also referred to as Punto 2000, is a variation of baccarat with slightly different payouts when compared to traditional baccarat. Much like traditional baccarat, you either place your chips on the banker, player, or the tie position. The LIVE dealer then deals cards to the player and banker, following the basic third card rules. If you bet on the correct outcome, you win. The payouts for a tie are 8 to 1, and the payouts for the player is 1 to 1. However, the difference comes in with the payouts for the banker. Instead of paying 0.95 to 1, the banker payouts are 1 to 1 unless the banker wins with a hand totalling 6, in which case the payout will be halved to 0.5 to 1. In addition, there’s an insurance side bet for the banker winning with 6, paying 12 to 1 if your bet is successful.
EntwineTech also released a Super baccarat variation, offering a range of side bets including Big/Small, Even/Odds, Pairs, Banker, and Player. The Super Baccarat variation offers a full-screen betting interface and the most ideal and realistic playing experience.
EntwineTech has also introduced a Baccarat Pairs variation of the game to further expand their library of LIVE dealer games. Baccarat Pairs is essentially a side bet on traditional baccarat where a win is achieved when the first two cards dealt, to either the banker or the player, constitute a pair. For instance, K, K or 9, 9. The odds paid for a Baccarat Pair win is 11 to 1.
The traditional baccarat offering from EntwineTech offers a user-friendly betting flow along with bets made on either the banker, Tie, or player positions. Traditional Baccarat is basically Punto Banco in a LIVE dealer setting.
VIP Baccarat was added to the EntwineTech gaming library to cater to those players looking for extended betting time and, of course, higher table limits. EntwineTech developed their VIP baccarat table with an extended betting time of 35 seconds and offer very high betting limits for high rollers, providing the ultimate VIP gaming experience.
Dragon Bonus Baccarat
This is basically traditional baccarat with an optional banker and player bonus side bet. Your payout on the optional side bet will greatly depend on the margin your chosen hand wins by. For instance, let’s say you decide to take the bonus side bet for banker and the hand-drawn for the banker is a non-natural 9, beating the player hand by a total of 9 points. You will then receive a payout of 30 to 1. These additional two side bets offered by EntwineTech make for a marvellous gaming experience, and a more action-packed betting experience as well.
Points Baccarat offered by EntwineTech is basically another variation of Super 6, or more commonly known as No Commission baccarat. However, in this variation of baccarat, the betting ratio for both player and banker positions are updated in real time whenever a single bet has been confirmed. This is well presented underneath the player and banker positions with a blue and red line. In addition, Points Baccarat offers additional side bets for both player and banker, including natural win, 9 point, and 0 point bets. For the player and banker point betting items, the payout will be individual and won’t be related to the loss and win of the game.
Dragon Phoenix Baccarat
Dragon Phoenix Baccarat has the exact same rules as the company’s other baccarat game variations, but provides new options to bet on for customers, and enhanced banker payouts on winning bets. The new bets include Dragon 7 paying 40 to 1, and Phoenix 8 paying 25 to 1.
