Pragmatic Play’s Live Baccarat Features
Pragmatic Play’s live baccarat games are played with eight decks of cards. Regardless of which table a player chooses, there are several features common to them all.
For instance, there are four side bets on offer: Either Pair, Player Pair, Banker Pair and Perfect Pair:
- Either Pair – This is a bet on one of the two hands forming a pair. It does not matter which hand or what type of pair is formed. A winning bet pays 5:1.
- Player and Banker Pair – This is a bet on a specific hand forming a pair. Once again, it does not matter which type of pair is formed as long as the correct hand is chosen. A winning bet pays 11:1.
- Perfect Pair – This is a bet that a pair of matching cards will be dealt to one of the positions; i.e., they have the same value and suit. A Winning bet pays 25:1.
Some tables also offer a Super 6 side bet when playing in No Commission mode. This side bet wins if the banker position beats the player by six points and it pays 15:1. It is worth noting that at the Privé Lounge Baccarat tables, No Commission mode can be toggled on and off at will.
The tables also offer a selection of roadmaps for those who like to try to spot patterns and trends in the cards. For instance, players are able to view the Big Road and the Bead Plate, together with a number of other roadmaps that are derived from them.
Other Pragmatic Play Live Baccarat Games
Realistically, very few reading this will be able to afford the experience of playing Privé Lounge Baccarat. However, there are a number of other excellent Pragmatic Play live baccarat variants that can be enjoyed on a more modest budget.
For instance, the Super 8 Baccarat game offers a number of special side bets. The main one that sets it apart is the Super 8 side bet, which pays out if a Natural 8 is dealt. If the player or banker hand wins with a Natural 8, it pays 4:1, while if the game ends with a Natural 8 Tie, it pays 6:1.
Another interesting variant is Fortune 6 Baccarat. Once again, the game offers a special side bet. The Fortune 6 side bet wins if a 6 is the first card dealt and the payout increases if multiple 6s are dealt. If the first card dealt is a 6, it pays 3:1; if the first two cards are 6s, it pays 30:1, and if the first three cards are 6s, it pays 120:1.
In other words, if you are lucky enough to be able to play Privé Lounge Baccarat by Pragmatic Play, then you are in for a real treat. However, everyone else can still enjoy a first-class online baccarat experience without having to break the bank.
