Live Dragon Tiger by BetConstruct is an 8-deck variant with manually shuffled cards and an extra set of optional side bets, which the players can remove from the screen. The game is streamed 24/7 and played on a customizable interface that allows the user to adjust video quality, sound settings, and interact with the dealer or other players.
Thanks to the exaggerated oriental aesthetics and Macau-like studio décor, BetConstruct’s version of the game looks quite similar to other live tables on the market. The main advantage of the BetConstruct version is that it offers an extensive description of the roadmaps and includes Dragon Tiger strategy tips (under the Info tab).
Live Dragon Tiger is probably one of the simplest tables you can find inside the casino, which makes it ideal for beginners. The betting patterns look a lot like the ones in Baccarat, and the players start by placing one of the three main bets – Dragon, Tiger, or Tie. The latter has the highest payout value (11:1 or 50:1 on a suited Tie), but most players choose to steer clear of this bet, as it carries a high house edge. Dragon and Tiger pay 1:1, which makes them much safer for those who do not like high-risk bets.
The side bets are optional, and the players can also wager on Dragon or Tiger Big/Small (cards over or under 7), Even/Odd (betting that the card number will be either odd or even), or Suit (betting on a specific suit, with 3:1 payout rate). The Suit bets lose if the dealer draws a 7.
The best thing about BetConstruct’s Dragon Tiger live table is that it provides a great “support” for those who haven’t had a lot of experience playing Dragon Tiger. While a lot of developers do include the rulebook, a surprisingly low number will recommend a strategy as well. The platform is easy to navigate while the advanced optimization settings enable a more comfortable play.
