Like all of Evolution Gaming's games, their baccarat offers a range of vision
quality and view orientation choices that set it apart from most competing
platforms. The platform's key feature, and one that I'm sure all the other
providers are scrambling to copy, is the multi-view modes, allowing players to
choose the orientation of the video stream.
Views are chosen from the tools menu bottom right of the user interface. Choose
'Classic View', and you will be presented with a bet interface akin to that
typically found at most live gaming platforms...a small video web-cast inset
within the larger graphic dominated page. Choose '3D View' and you
are presented with a view that few other platform provider currently offer - the
video stream or web cast now fills the entire bet interface. Dealers and
table are enlarged so that it appears you are actually sitting at the table
(especially if you are playing on your television) and your chips are placed on
the table in a seamless merge of virtual and actual using blue screen technology.
Further, video quality choices allow you to pick a video feed quality that
matches your connection speed. If you're connection speed is flying,
choose high quality video; if your connection is not so great, low quality video
provides for fewer 'glitches' at the expense of lower resolution vision.
Evolution have clearly gone to great lengths to try to enhance the aesthetic
appeal of their games and create a look and feel that succeeds better than any
of the other platforms in making you feel as though you are really sitting at
the dealer's baccarat table. This attention to detail and superior video
streaming technology has caught the attention of a raft of 'Tier 1' online
gambling operators who have signed up to this platform in droves since its
launch not too long ago. PartyGaming, Expekt.com, Blue Square, William
Hill and of course Victor Chandler and Unibet are amongst recent licensees.
A recently added Pairs Baccarat game, with optional pairs side bets compliments
the standard offering.

Baccarat in '3D View'
3D View presents the dealer and table in an enlarged format,
filling the entire screen. This is the closest you will come to
sitting at a baccarat table at a bricks and mortar casino.
Note that while the table is real, your bet chips appear as 'virtual'
overlays on the table.
Baccarat in 'Classic View'
Select 'Classic' from the tools menu, and your
viewing aspect changes to something more akin to what you will find at
most other live dealer platforms.
The dealer and table, as web-cast, are inset into the surrounding
Pair side bets are offered on all baccarat tables.
Limits on the VIP table are high to very high depending on the casino
you're playing at.
This particular game, played at
William Hill has a minimum of $2,000 and a maximum of $80,000.
