Live Baccarat VIG
Live baccarat from Visionary iGaming is streamed from a spacious studio in Costa Rica and offers a very smooth, thrilling game play thanks to a large video feed screen and a unique picture-in-picture technology that creates an alluring visual experience.
The key aspect that strikes the eye as soon as you join the table is a simple, clean user interface with almost no settings. This simplicity can be a disadvantage for some, but a benefit for others. Anyway, gamblers who are new to live baccarat will find it very easy to play this game; furthermore, the game has readily accessible house rules, which is another pro for every player.
Video is delivered in an HD-quality with no quality adjustment options; however, the game software customizes the stream automatically to make it fit the user’s internet connection. When the dealer deals out cards during the game, the camera zooms in and shows the action in close-up. At the same time, the dealer and table are shown as a small box in the top left corner of the main video screen.
A chat facility is normally hidden from view and shows up when clicking the Chat tab at the top right corner. Dealer tipping is another popular feature that allows players to select a chip denomination and tip the dealer at the table. Baccarat tables released by ViG are offered in three betting limits that you can select at the casino lobby. During the game, the betting limits for the table you are playing at can be viewed by clicking the tab near the chat box.
Live baccarat rules and statistics
The aim of the game is to try to predict the outcome of the next round by betting on Player, Banker or Tie. Payouts are typical for a live baccarat game and amount to 1:1 (Player), 0.95:1 (Banker) and 8:1 (Tie). The card scoring and third card rules are also familiar to anyone who has ever played baccarat. Instead of traditional four or five scoreboards that are used in most live baccarat titles and are on constant display, this game features handy and easily accessible tracing indicators which are shown one at a time and switchable in a drop-down menu to the left of the stream window.
The ViG live baccarat features the Pairs and Dragon Bonus side bets that are placed and awarded independently of a regular bet. The side bets available in the reviewed live baccarat are:
- Player/Banker Pair. Pays out 11 to 1 if the hand you have placed the side bet on comprises a pair
- Either Pair. Pays out 5 to 1 if either hand makes up a pair
- Dragon Bonus. Pays out up to 30 to 1 if the Player or Banker hand wins by 4–9 points.
