Bullfight is an intriguing card game mostly popular in China and Southeast Asia. There are several live dealer versions of it on the market; some are provided by the likes of Asia Gaming and BBin. On this occasion, we’ll be presenting a version made by Sunbet, a Philippine-based developer of live dealer games known to focus primarily on the Asian audience. That being said, it comes as no surprise that they’ve chosen to adapt such a popular and authentic Asian game as Bullfight to a live dealer model. Also known as Niu Niu, or Bull Bull, or Chinese Bullfighting Poker even, the game of Bullfight offers thrills of both baccarat and poker, elevating them to a more advanced level that makes the game more interesting without making it difficult to understand and learn.
Live Bullfight by Sunbet is a well-executed game live dealer game with a stable live feed flow. It features two hostesses/dealers and the studio setting looks quite nice. However, the video occupies a small portion of the screen, whereas a digital table is large and the remaining areas of the screen are filled with stats and other surrounding functions.
As you join the table of Live Bullfight supplied by Sunbet, for example at Dafabet’s Jade Club, you will hear the prerecorded voice declaring that betting has started, or that there can be no more betting on this round. The betting interval is 25 seconds, during which the participants can choose their chips and place them on the designated betting spots. The options to bet on are several – you can wager on Player, Banker, Player Two Pairs, Player Three of a Kind, Banker Two Pairs and Banker Three of Kind.
When the round starts, the Player and the Banker receive 5 cards each. The participants must select 3 cards to build a total with a multiple of 10 (10, 20 or 30), and place them at the lower row, while the remaining 2 cards are placed at the upper row. A multiple of 10 with any 3 cards is known as “Bull”, and if one is accomplished then the player is qualified to use the remaining 2 cards to compete. On the contrary, the player stands at “No Bull” and has to play the game by the highest value card. The card combinations/types in the game rank as follows: Bull Bull> Bull 9 – Bull 1> No Bull. Player/Banker Two Pairs pay 1:10 odds, whereas Player/Banker Three of a Kind pay 1:13 odds.
When people think of card games these are usually blackjack or poker. Live Bullfight is something completely different, although it can be said to have some similarities with poker and baccarat. Still, it provides original gameplay which comes with the right technological support. Sunbet offers a decent variant of this traditional game of chance and it is surely recommendable to fans of realistic table action.
