Playtech builds on Roulette success with Prestige Baccarat

Kevin Kilminster, Prestige BaccaratPlaytech has given the classic game of Baccarat a modern-day makeover by launching Prestige Baccarat, a live casino title which includes five gameplay angles and action replays of winning hands.

The launch 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. 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.

The game showcases Playtech Live’s first re-engineered user interface. Following the release of HTML5 Roulette, Prestige Baccarat has been built in close co-operation with licensees. The company has combined discovery sessions and customer feedback with dealers hand-picked for their Baccarat skillset and native languages depending on which options players select.

Kevin Kilminster, Head of Innovation for 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 for Playtech, said: “Prestige Baccarat and the Prestige suite of products marks the beginning of a very exciting journey, with 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 personalisation.”
