Playtech's Asian studio in Manila seems like a perfect setting for the exclusive variant of the casino classic, brought to you thanks to impeccable live stream and intuitive user interface. VIP Baccarat is basically a high stakes version of the original game, where the player that has made the largest bet on either Player or Banker has the opportunity to peak at the hidden cards and learn the outcome ahead of other gamers.
Tables spread across the casino floor in Manila can accommodate seven persons each and they obviously feature much higher wagering limits than standard tables. In addition to betting on the Player, Banker or Tie, VIP Baccarat supports another six side bets, thus providing the customers with additional betting opportunities.
The process of placing wagers is as simple as they get, with chips placed on the betting positions closest to you representing bets made on Player, and next two placed on Banker and Tie respectively. A total of seven chip sizes is on offer to help you determine your desired stake.
History panel is located in the upper right hand corner and it allows you to see previous outcomes using standard road maps. Some players use these tracing indicators to try and predict outcomes of future hands.
You can switch between two camera views using the options panel found to the right of the casino chips, with Chat, Help, Sound, Settings and Full Screen options also available here. Wagers can only be made while 'Place your bets' sign is active, and Clear, Confirm and Rebet icons are in place to speed up the process.
You don't have to be a high roller to play VIP Baccarat, but the game has been designed for this exclusive group of online gamers and that is evident every step of the way. While premium video feed quality is nothing less than we expected from Playtech, high betting limits and a special advantage given to the highest staking player make VIP Baccarat extremely popular among the gamers that tend to wager large amounts of cash.
