Asia Gaming has been operating in the Asian market since 2012, and the company has already gained the reputation of one of the most innovative gaming software developers on the continent. The AGIN software delivered by Asia Gaming contains an impressive variety of games which are, for the most part, developed to satisfy the Asian audience. Here, instead of poker and blackjack, you will see baccarat, sic bo and Dragon Tiger, all hosted by gorgeous and professional dealers, of course. Live Baccarat AGIN Vegas is the first of the AGIN range that we find worth talking about, and you are free to check it out at Live Casino House, where it adds to the casino’s regular live dealer portfolio along with Live Sic Bo AGIN Vegas and Live Dragon Tiger AGIN Vegas.
Live Baccarat AGIN is a classic baccarat game with strictly Asian dealers, who are, by the way, rather animated and cheerful. In other casinos, Asian dealers are often labeled as stiff, but Asia Gaming tries to break that prejudice and employ skilled, yet friendly, dealers that players can relate to. With live chat included, the gaming experience is indeed impressive. Although the interface appears busy, the full coverage of the baccarat table is not compromised.
Asia Gaming Live Baccarat AGIN Vegas is played with 8 decks of cards, and there are 8 seats at the table. Being a card comparing game, in baccarat the winner must be closest to the total of 9 points. All the participants compare their hands to the Banker, aka the dealer. Once the round starts, the players select the chips’ amount and place them on the desired betting areas. There are ten different chip values from which the players can select five and introduce them into their betting plans. The three basic bets are Player, Banker and Tie, but there are additional bets available, from Player Pair and Banker Pair to Big/Small and Super 6.
After 31 rounds have been played per card shoe, Big and Small bets are no longer allowed. The Super 6 side bet is only available when No Commission is enabled (No Comm button). Perfect Pair and Any Pair are always available and they pay out at 1:25 and 1:5 odds, respectively. After the first set of 2 cards are dealt, if either players’ or banker’s card points equal 8 or 9, this is known as ‘natural’. Don’t worry because the cards dealt are difficult to read, as their digital images are displayed on the left for the sake of smooth gameplay.
Live Baccarat AGIN Vegas benefits from a widescreen video which shows the dealer in studio which is hardly any different from a genuine casino floor, with numerous other tables in the background. You can play with background chatter and without, and add all the flavors that you like. Most of the aspects in the game are customizable - from video quality, sounds and bet size to language and Commission/No Commission mode.
