Given that the company has been operational since 2013, Gameplay Interactive is now, several years after its inception, becoming known as a provider with the capacity to deliver high-quality online streaming services with all the thrills of land-based casinos to desktop or mobile platforms. One of such platforms is Live Casino House, an Asian-facing live casino website where players can try out Live Fabulous 4 Baccarat Macau. This is an exceptional variation of the game of cards popularly known as baccarat. In many aspects, the game offered by Gameplay Interactive plays out just like classic baccarat, but as the developer itself pointed out in the news statement about its release, it is ‘married with ground-breaking, innovative side bets’.
Also, the paytable shows differences when compared to the standard payout odds in Macau-style baccarat. As we all know, in regular baccarat all winning Player and Banker bets are paid out at even money. However, Live Fabulous 4 Baccarat has different payouts for different winning hands.
In the Macau lobby of Live Casino House, you will get access to two Live Fabulous 4 Baccarat tables where you can play the game in two somewhat settings, but under equal conditions. The dealers are Asian and quite attractive, but the players can’t communicate with them directly as no live chat feature has been made available so far. There is a phone number on display at all times which players can dial to confirm that they are watching a real-time live stream.
Back to the game – before each hand, bets are placed. The dealer invites (via prerecorded message) the players to place bets, and informs them when the time for wagering is up. The next step is the dealing of the cards. Each participant, and the dealer, gets two cards. For those who are unfamiliar, baccarat is played with 8 decks. Any card from 2 to 9 shall have the face value as its point value, whereas Ace counts as 1. Ten, Jack, Queen or King shall have a point value of zero. The goal is to have a hand with a total of 9, or as closest as possible. In specific situations, players and the dealer (Banker) are allowed to draw the third card, if after the initial dealing the round is still not resolved.
Some of the payouts in Live Fabulous 4 Baccarat Macau are as follows: Banker/Player wins with total points 4 – Push, Banker/Player wins with total points 1 – 2:1, Tie – 8:1, Player/Banker wins with any point total except 4 or 1 – 1:1. Bettors can make use of the special side bets which gives the name to this Gameplay Interactive creation and place their wagers on Banker Fabulous 4 or Player Fabulous 4. They pay 20:1 and 40:1, respectively. Other available betting possibilities include Banker Fabulous Pair and Player Fabulous Pair (Suited only, Pair only, Suited Pair).
Baccarat is immensely popular, especially in the Asian gaming community. For a long time, all that players could find were traditional baccarat tables, with or without live dealers, with three main bets, standard payouts and that was it. Gameplay Interactive introduced more than one innovative version of baccarat in its portfolio and its associated casinos. At Live Casino House, players have the opportunity to test Live Fabulous 4 Baccarat Macau and benefit from its favorable side bets.
