Baccarat by BetSoft Review
BetSoft released this version of Baccarat a few years ago, but players in Singapore, the UK, and other parts of the world have refused to slow it down. It is still hugely popular, mainly due to its simple design, features that you find on the face of the developer’s site and its demo version where players can practice.
Just like other real money baccarat versions, this no number-deck card table game has three betting options: Player, Banker, and Tie, and you can bet on any or all three all at once. Rule of the third card applies here too when a player and a banker have same-value cards. While it would typically be 8-decked, this version is not specific, and so each session could have its unique set of the deck.
Baccarat by BetSoft Features
The developer went the classic way, so the features are simple and straight forward. The cards are dealt face down, and their face value is what counts except for Ace whose value is 1. As a player, you want to keep your numbers below 9 since anything above that takes you to the edge of a loss. There are no special features, even for pace change. Everything about this game is quite retro, the fact that some players find a little dull.
In this version, the number of decks is not revealed, making it harder than others to accurately calculate the house edge. That said, the payout for bankers is still way better than others even after the customary 5% commission. Players do not get to choose the gender of the dealer they have been dealt.
Underneath the table on an online Baccarat session is where you choose your chip size and bet type between Player, Banker, or Tie, or all of them. Once you have placed your bet between the minimum $10 and a maximum $100 per bet type, you are free to adjust the selection or select “Deal” to get things started.
On the screen is the option to play around with a sound setting, but there is no side betting or even a road map. Different bets carry different percentages of RTP. Banker is between 98.94 and 98.99%, Player 98.71-98.76%, while 84.25-85.64%. Their respective payouts are 0.95:1, 1:1, and 8:1. The varying RTP is caused by a lack of clarity on the number of decks used in a round, and so the house edge is a little hard to calculate accurately.
BetSoft has made is simple for new players to acclimatize to the game by offering a free baccarat version for practice that is not limited in any way. All the features you have when playing for real money are available on the free mode version so that transition is easy and flawless. The developer has designed the mobile version of this game for compatibility with all operating systems and mobile devices, including iPads, tablets, and mobile phones. If you are looking for a game with straightforward features, a bit of a challenge, and a good RTP, then Baccarat by BetSoft is the way to go.
