Playtech launches Prestige Baccarat
Playtech, the world’s leading gaming content and software, systems
and services supplier, has launched Prestige Baccarat, the second
instalment in the growing series of hugely popular Prestige live casino
titles offering unique and superior gameplay, including five dynamic
camera views for a closer to the action offering.
The classic game of Baccarat has been given a modern day makeover
with Playtech’s offering unique to the live casino market. The live
Baccarat experience has been significantly enhanced with five gameplay
angles and action replays of winning hands enabling players to get
closer to the action than in any physical or online environment.
Staged in a newly designed environment, Prestige Baccarat offers a
custom designed cloth and backdrop which depicts the Chinese symbol for
Luck, plus a series of specially positioned cameras which focus on the
‘Squeeze’ element of Baccarat and reinforce the values and experience
this type of game is aimed to deliver.
The game’s user experience and journey has also been re-engineered
and enhanced for ease of use, while the dealers themselves have been
hand-picked for their Baccarat skillset and native languages depending
on which options players select.
The game showcases Playtech Live’s first re-engineered user interface
which, following the company’s release of HTML5 Roulette, has been
built in close co-operation with licensees. Extensive discovery sessions
and customer feedback and the addition of hand-picked expert Baccarat
dealers, combine to create Playtech Live’s best ever UI to date.
The launch of Prestige Baccarat comes almost a year to the day that
Playtech launched its inaugural Prestige title, Prestige Roulette, which
has been a great success with many of the industry’s leading licensees.
Set in an intimate, neon-lit environment Prestige Roulette enables
players to get closer to the action and the dealer with the game
replicating a real-life, one-on-one VIP casino experience. While the
ball spins in expectation of a big win, the tension is heightened with
multiple in-game camera angles, revenue-enhancing quick-fire betting
rounds, and an instant replay of the previous game win.
Kevin Kilminster, Head of Innovation, Playtech Live, said: “A
great deal of research, development and close co-operation with
licensees has gone into what we are confident is the best live Baccarat
product on the market.
“The newly refined live game contains the classic squeeze
variations as well as the squeeze logic associated with one of the most
popular casino games in the world. The feedback has been very positive
so far and we’re sure it will go from strength-to-strength.”
Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “Prestige Baccarat and the
Prestige suite of products marks the beginning of a very exciting
journey and Playtech Live unveiling its next generation of live casino
games, platform technology and software that we believe will take live
casino to an entirely new level of product capability, performance and
