Playtech Adds Prestige Baccarat to Their Live Games Portfolio

playtechFollowing the success of their Prestige Roulette, Playtech adds a modern-day variant of another classic casino table game to its Prestige series. The new product provides an enhanced live Baccarat experience with multiple gameplay angles. Five dynamic camera views focus on the ‘Squeeze’ element of the game while players get the chance to replay winning hands. Elegant dealers host custom-designed tables, hand-picked for their Baccarat skills and knowledge of native languages.

Initial feed-back has been very positive and the company expects their live Prestige Baccarat to replicate the success of its predecessor.

Prestige Baccarat and the Prestige suite of products marks the beginning of a very exciting journey

, says Playtech COO Shimon Akad.

Baccarat fans will still find all of the standard elements of their favourite table game while getting closer to the action than they could have done while playing in an online or a land-based casino.

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,” explains Kevin Kilminster, head of innovation for Playtech‘s live dealer division. The company is confident this is now the best live baccarat product on the market, thanks to „a great deal of research, development and close co-operation with licensees.

liveroulettePlaytech is widely regarded as one of world’s leading providers for the online gaming industry and they hold over 120 licensees all over the globe. In November last year, company has launched Live Prestige Roulette, allowing users to get engaged in the action by viewing gameplay from numerous angles. Streamed from a neon-lit private room, Prestige Roulette has offered a unique gaming experience giving players the option to hide the table and focus on the wheel and the dealer. Multiple cameras made the game even more attractive by providing viewing from different angles, close ups of the wheel and slow motion replays.

Earlier this month the company hit the news with another hugely successful launch, the best-in-class HTML5 Roulette which allowed players to enjoy their favourite game on various mobile devices in either portrait or landscape mode. Prestige Baccarat also comes with this re-engineered user interface gamers will benefit from when using their iPhones, iPads and Android devices. HTML5 Roulette enables players to see their bets while the roulette wheel is spinning and benefit from a user-friendly interface with easy-to-use navigation and personalised view of live action. Following extensive user testing and close cooperation with major licensees, the new product  was very quickly proven to be a big success. Playtech already announced they will follow it up with an HTML5 Blackjack product to be launched later this year.

Having met with fantastic players’ response after releasing Prestige Roulette and bound to receive equally positive feed-back with live Prestige Baccarat, we’re certain the company already has new products in their pipeline. We’re looking forward to seeing the next addition they will make to this exciting live games series.
