Baccarat Squeeze from Evolution Gaming recreates all the excitement of the online game
For Evolution Gaming, like all other developers specialising in the live casino sector, success in immersing a player in the excitement of the game as if they were physically there, is a constant challenge. This doesn’t just involve recreating a similar almost identical environment to real land based casinos but also includes using cutting edge technology and integrating innovative functions into the platforms.
By using these methods Evolution Gaming has thrilled players with its Immersive Roulette and then with its Blackjack Party. So that just left the third classic table game: online Baccarat. This has now been done by intelligent use of the three elements outlined above. How, you ask? We’ll explain.
Online Baccarat: Suspense….Suspense!
Let us say first of all that Baccarat Squeeze is just a type of conventional baccarat. If you’re a regular player of this famous card game you can be reassured because the basic rules of the game don’t change. “But what does change?” Put simply, it’s the way the game is sold to players. So, a little like with Immersive Roulette, the developer optimises player immersion by training 17 HD cameras on the female dealer. Every part of her body and in particular her hands can be zoomed in on. So throughout the game one can follow her movements closely just as if one were right in front of her. The surroundings in the developer’s casino studio in Riga have been designed to give the same effect. Everything takes place just like in a normal game of live baccarat up to a decisive point in the game.
Depending on how the game progresses, the dealer adds to the suspense by not revealing straight away the card that will decide who wins the game. With a skilled movement of her fingers she will first reveal the colour of the card by pressing the card between her hands and this is where the name “squeeze” comes from. While this is going on a series of zooms and camera angles increase the player’s adrenalin levels. The dealer heats things up even more by pivoting the card to repeat the action while keeping the value of the card well hidden. So it’s only after several seconds of this suspense that she reveals the whole of the card filmed by 17HD cameras zooming in and streaming live.
Live Casinos offering Baccarat Squeeze
Developed by Evolution Gaming, this game is available in most of its partner casinos, of which there are more and more. Among these we can particularly recommend Exclusivebet Casino and also some of the developer’s new partner sites such as Dublinbet Casino, Casino Extra and Lucky31 Casino who have all three, added Evolution Gaming tables to their respective live sections in March 2016. This makes them the best stocked live platforms in the market with 6 different live gaming developers including Ezugi, Microgaming and Actual Gaming which offers streaming from Irish land based casino tables.
