Live Baccarat Squeeze - Evolution
Evolution is widely considered to be the leading live casino game supplier. They offer several different versions of Baccarat, each of which is hosted by friendly and professional dealers who ensure that the game runs smoothly at all times.
While the Baccarat games all follow the same rules, each offers something slightly different. As the name suggests, in the case of Live Baccarat Squeeze, it introduces the ritual of the squeeze.
The squeeze is a way of revealing the cards in Baccarat that first became popular in Macau. In this version of Baccarat, rather than deal all cards face up, they are initially dealt face down. The dealer then reveals the cards for the hand associated with the lesser total bet. The cards in the other hand are then squeezed. This means that the dealer bends over the edge of the cards, which is shown in a close up shot, to draw you into the action and suspense.
A baccarat squeeze is performed by bending up one edge of the card then rotating it 90 degrees and bending the other side. Each time, only the suite symbols are revealed and not the card’s number (it is hidden by the thumb). This gives players some hints as to what the card may be, for example, two suit symbols along the top and three down the side could be a 6, 7 or 8.
While the squeeze will of course have no impact on the results of the round, it does add a lot of tension and excitement to the game.
You will find many other features to enjoy in Live Baccarat Squeeze. For instance, it offers the Player and Banker Pair side bet, and there is a large choice of roadmap scorecards for those who like to try to spot patters in the results of previous rounds.
Live Baccarat – Evolution
This is the regular live dealer version of Baccarat and while it may not offer any special features such as the squeeze, it does feature everything a player could need.
The games take place at a bean-shaped table and of course the dealers are absolute professionals. Live Baccarat is played with the standard rules that you are sure to be familiar with already. The cards are dealt facedown and then revealed simultaneously by the dealer.
Live Baccarat offers the Player and Banker Pair Side bet. The Player Pair wins if the first two cards dealt to the Player are a pair and the Banker Pair wins if the first two cards dealt to the Banker are a pair. Both of the side bets pay at 11:1 when won. Some games may have even more side bets, such as Player Bonus, Banker Bonus, Either Pair and Perfect Pairs, which offer payouts of up to 200:1.
Many of the Live Baccarat tables also have a special bonus feature known as Red Envelope. It is randomly triggered on the Tie, Player Pair and Banker Pair side bets and can boost the payouts up to 88 times the bet.
Those who enjoy looking at game statistics will not only find a breakdown of hundreds of previous rounds, but can also look at the roadmap scorecards. The Bead Road and Big Road display the results of each past round while the Big Eye Road, Small Road and Cockroach Road display patterns derived from the Big Road. The statistics and roads are reset when the shoe is replaced. Fuller explanations of how these work can be found in the game’s rules.
It is also possible to customise your experience to a certain extent. There is a choice of view, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. You can also view statistics such as what percentage of bets have been placed on Player, Banker and Tie. Of course, while playing, you can enjoy chatting to your fellow players and the dealer.
It is also worth noting that the live baccarat games are available in regular versions and as no commission games. When playing No Commission Baccarat, there is no 5% commission on winning Banker bets. Rather, all winning bets pay 1:1. The exception to this is if the Banker wins with a 6, in which case the bet is paid at 0.5:1. No Commission Baccarat also has an extra side bet, the Super 6 insurance bet, and it pays at 15:1 if the Banker wins with a 6.
Finally, no matter what version of Live Baccarat you choose to play, the game is fully mobile compatible. This means that you can play it on your smartphone or tablet and enjoy exactly the same range of features.
Baccarat – Microgaming/Switch Studios
If you don’t want to play a live dealer version of Baccarat, then do not worry, we also have RNG games for you to enjoy.
The Microgaming partner studio Switch Studios has developed a fantastic Baccarat game that we are sure everyone will enjoy playing. The game has a simple but elegant layout and it offers all the features you could possibly need.
For example, after the cards have been dealt, it allows you to carry out the squeeze. You can peel back the edges of each card and even rotate them 90 degrees if you so wish. Of course, if you don’t want to squeeze the cards then you can just flip them.
The game also offers the Player Pair and Banker Pair side bets, both of which payout at 11:1. There is also an advanced history view. By default, the game shows the results of the last 12 rounds down the side. However, the panel can be expanded and it will then display a number of different roadmaps.
You can also customise your playing experience to a large degree. You can turn game sounds and the dealer voice on or off, you can turn on turbo mode to speed things up, and you can opt to turn off the option to squeeze if you do not want to use it.
Of course, the game is fully mobile compatible and it has a very wide betting range so that all players can enjoy it.
