Pragmatic Play is one of the leading content providers in the exciting world of online gambling. To stay at the top, it’s crucial to keep your portfolio fresh. That’s precisely what the company has been doing recently.
The renowned developer has expanded its offering of live dealer games by launching two new baccarat variants.
Titled Fortune 6 Baccarat and Super 8 Baccarat, the new releases promise a distinctive playing experience, further enhanced with a carefully chosen selection of side bets.
Fortune 6 Baccarat
The game’s style resembles other baccarat titles from Pragmatic Play, with an eight-deck shoe in play. Fortune 6 Baccarat uses standard rules and allows players to bet on three outcomes: the Player, the Banker, and a Tie.
Apart from the three main bets, the new Pragmatic Play game includes several side bets. They not only provide additional excitement but also increase the overall win potential. If you want to make the most of these side bets, you don’t have to wager on the main ones.
The Banker and the Player bet pay 0.95.1 and 1:1, respectively, while betting on Tie awards a prize of 8x the triggering stake. But it’s the side bets that deliver a rollercoaster of excitement and set Fortune 6 Baccarat from other baccarat tables in the market.
Side bets enable players to bet on how many six cards will be given to either the Banker or Player hands. They pay 3:1 for receiving a six card as the first, with than prize increasing to 30:1 if the first two cards are sixes. Getting sixes as the first three cards results in an award of 120:1.
If you wish to bet on a Player win with a points total of six, choose the Player 6 side bet. It pays 14:1. If the Banker win with a Natural, you‘ll receive the bet back. Banker 6 is a variant of this bet where you wager on the Banker. It pays a bit more, 16.1, while the Player‘s Natural also results in a push.
Player/Banker Fortune Pair allows players to bet that the first two cards are a pair, paying 1:1 for the correct outcome. The pair in the same value pays 5:1, or 9:1 for a suited pair.
Wagering options range from $0.20 to $5,000 on every spin, with the RTP depending on your bet. The lowest payout percentage is for Tie, 85.64%, increasing to 98.76% for the Player bet and 98.94% for the Banker. Side bets offer slightly lower RTPs, starting from 97.83% for Player/Banker Fortune Pair and dropping to 93.36% for Banker 6.
Super 8 Baccarat
Super 8 Baccarat comes with a standard number of main bets. Players can place bets on the Player, Banker, or Tie bets. The Player bet pays 1:1, Banker 0.95:1 while betting on a Tie can result in an 8:1 payout.
Regarding side bets, they represent stakes on different card combinations dealt to the Player or Banker. You can combine them with main bets or place them individually.
Player/Banker Red/Black side bets enable players to bet on the number of coloured cards dealt to either the Player or Banker. Two cards of the same colour pay 2:1, with three of a kind paying 4:1. Get three cards of the same suit, and you‘ll be paid 10:1.
Player/Banker Super Pair pays 40:1 for two Diamond fours. Any other pairs of four are worth 20:1, while Diamond pairs award a 30:1 payout. Get any two matching cards to get a prize of 10:1.
The game is named after the Super 8 side bet, representing a straightforward addition to the game. Just put your money on the Player or Banker to win or lose with a total value of eight. You‘ll be paid 4:1 or 6:1, depending on whether it‘s a win or loss. On the other hand, a Natural Tie with eight pays 6:1.
Super 8 Baccarat uses an eight-deck shoe, with betting ranging from as low as $0.20 to $5,000 per spin. Payout percentages for main bets are typical: 98.76 for the Player bet, 98.94% for the Banker bet, and 85.64% for Tie. Side bets come with RTPs ranging from 95.45% for Super 8 to 96.54% for Player Red/Black.
