N2-Live Baccarat is the flagship product of the Asian-based casino software company.
The company reports the highest traffic on their baccarat tables and the game can be played both online and on mobile. Baccarat fans across China, Vietnam and SE Asia can enjoy 8-deck baccarat with all the convenience of added features such as Multi-tables, Lucky Road, Mission Bonus and Smart Bet. The latest addition is the new Web Hostess feature where players can chat with an eye-pleasing Web Hostess while betting on baccarat.
The Smart Bet system is exclusively available with N2-Live software. The system is programmed to carry out automatic betting on the basis of Lucky Road strategy, while constantly monitoring over 20 baccarat tables. It reacts when Lucky Road appears, whether players are on or offline. Some setting up is required beforehand, though.
Live Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards, without Jokers. Face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) and Tens are worth 0, while Aces are worth 1. All other cards are counted at face value. At round start Banker and Player will receive 2 cards respectively, two cards for the Players and then two for the Banker.
The third card for Banker and/or Player may be dealt according to the game rules. For example, if the Player's third card is 8 the Banker does not get a third card. If the Player’s hand total is 6, he or she will not take a third card. Whoever is closest to a total of 9 wins the game. Matching hand totals will result in a Tie.
The game supports bets on Banker, Player, Tie, Super 6, Banker Pair, Player Pair, Big, Small, Perfect Pair, Either Pair, Dragon 7, Panda 8 and Dragon Bonus. As you can see, there are plenty of betting opportunities to keep you entertained, and some of them carry a sizeable payout. Panda 8 pays 25 to 1, whereas Dragon 7 pays 40 to 1. At the start of the game, you can enable or disable No Commission play. Unlike roulette, which is played in a separate studio room, baccarat is played in a big studio with other tables in the background. Since the cards aren’t ideally visible, there will be a digital representation shown to confirm which cards have been drawn.
The live dealer interface (AM tables) feature six card scanners, so there is no doubt that the cards shown are the ones that have been drawn.
The software surrounding a simple game of baccarat can make a difference, and Live Baccarat from N2-Live is an example. While the game itself hasn’t gone through significant changes, the developers surely left their mark on it with an advanced interface and a varied choice of betting options.
We find this variant of live dealer baccarat enjoyable and advise new players to try a few games in demo mode before betting real money, just to get to know all the functionalities first.
