Playtech has several live Baccarat tables (in addition to Blackjack, Roulette, and Casino Hold’em), but the Live Baccarat 7 Seat is perhaps closest to the standard form of the game, found in most online and land-based casinos.
While the rest of their Baccarat variants have a certain distinctive feature (squeeze, Mini Baccarat’s simplified structure or high table limits at the VIP Baccarat table), Baccarat 7 Seat is the straightforward version with the limited number of seats and the traditional payout table. The interface is typical for Playtech releases and you will also notice that the seat 4 is missing, as this number is believed to bring bad luck.
The available seats will be clearly marked so that new players can immediately see if there’s room at the table. Once seated, the player's next step should be placing the bet; the chips are lined up at the very bottom of the screen and one must select the amount and position the wager on Player, Banker, or Tie.
Live Baccarat 7 Seat does not break the Playtech’s side bets tradition and aside from the main bets, players will also be able to try their luck with Player Pair, Banker Pair, Perfect Pair, Either Pair, Big or Small. The payout table for each of the options is displayed across the table. The limits for the side bets are different from the ones attached to the main bets, and you can see all the minimum/maximum amounts in the small window pinned to the upper left corner of the game screen.
Playtech’s Live Baccarat is an unpretentious table that offers no more than a traditional game on the standardized platform. If you are looking for something edgier and more dramatic, perhaps this will not be your number one choice, but true Baccarat fans will be appreciative of the simplicity, dealer’s professionalism, video quality, and user-friendly UI.
