Baccarat Gold by Microgaming
Microgaming clocks a change of pace from its other titles with its Baccarat Gold. While the game has the gameplay features of a standard Baccarat, it also employs a bunch of fancy mechanics and animations to emulate a real land casino feel, which do make the game somewhat cumbersome and clunky, though quite a bit more realistic.
The rules are as follows: the player bets on either his hand, the banker’s hand or for a tie. Once the bet is in place, the dealer deals two cards for both the banker and the player; whoever has a hand value closer to 9 wins the opponent’s bet, while a tie pays 8 for 1!
The hand values are calculated as per standard Baccarat – each of the numbered cards, except 10, plays its value, while 10s and higher count as 0, and Aces are 1. If the value of the hand is 10 or high, only the second digit acts as total value.
Bet range from €5 to €500. Do note that if you bet on the Banker and he wins, you must pay a 5% commission on your winnings, or €25 out of the €1 000 at max bet.
