Offered in the live dealer lobby of Live Casino House, SA Gaming Live Baccarat Speed Shanghai is a dynamic, fast-paced baccarat game designed and executed with a distinctly Asian feel. SA Gaming is well known for its table games hosted by live croupiers specifically designed to appeal to the Asian market; the company boasts a complete suite of games with flagship formats such as live dealer sic bo, baccarat and Dragon Tiger. Additional features symptomatic of all live casino games developed by the Philippine provider, such as optional side bets and the ability to access statistics in real time, are also incorporated in Live Baccarat Speed Shanghai.
Created initially through Flash technology, SA Gaming live dealer titles are now part of a lightweight framework which runs on HTML5 platforms and facilitates play on touchscreen mobile or tablet devices. Live Baccarat Speed Shanghai does not differ much from the standard Live Baccarat Shanghai version. In fact, the biggest difference is the betting period which is cut shorter and the rounds are played at a faster pace.
Players who’ve played baccarat don’t need a special introduction. Those who haven’t shouldn’t have any major issues to learn the basic game rules and proceedings. Each Live Baccarat Speed Shanghai round starts with the players placing their bets within the designated time window. The countdown starts at 20 seconds, and when it ends the dealer will reveal the cards that have been assigned to the Banker and the Player. The traditional dealing order remains and the croupier will use 8 decks of cards without jokers.
The regular baccarat game revolves around seven bets, starting with the basic three: Player, Banker and Tie. Additional bets include Banker Pair, Player Pair, Banker Natural and Player Natural. Player bet carries even odds, the Banker bet pays 0.95:1 and the Tie bet pays 8:1. A natural hand is considered a two-card hand where the total sum of points is 8 or 9. Those who wish to play baccarat under more challenging conditions can enable the optional Super 6 bet or Cow Cow.
Playing SA Gaming Live Baccarat Speed Shanghai should quench the thirst of many live casino gamblers for an authentic Asian online gaming experience. The game is featured in the Flash lobby and the new HTML5 lobby of SA Gaming in Live Casino House and the users are free to choose the option that suits them best. The live studio is classy and stylishly furnished, and the live dealers are carefully selected to complete the developer’s vision of an immersive, speedy baccarat game.
