Gaming Interface and Remarkable Features
It makes sense that the multi-level progressive jackpot is what makes this Playtech release so interesting in the eyes of baccarat buffs. Here we have four incessantly increasing pots that drop randomly. However, the bigger you bet, the more the likelihood of collecting a pot increases.
It is possible to trigger one of the jackpots even if your wager has gained to winnings. The trouble is players qualify for the random jackpots by posting bets on the Tie, which, as we previously said, offers terrible odds and yields one the worst house edges you can ever find in a casino. Respectively, 1% of each Tie bet goes toward the progressive pools.
The four prizes you can win in Dragon Jackpot Baccarat along with their seed amounts are the Green Dragon ($10), the Blue Dragon ($100), the Red Dragon ($1,000), and the Golden Dragon ($20,000).
A mini jackpot game starts where you have a wheel with a total of 10 positions, with each position containing one of the four colors corresponding to the pots. You need to collect three symbols with the same color to win the respective progressive prize. Other than that, the game’s interface features scorecards for popular baccarat patterns, a history panel, and a chatbox.
We are up to our ears from progressive slots and were truly pleased by Playtech’s idea of giving baccarat players the chance to win a progressive prize for a change. The developers have done the sophisticated card game justice with a fantastic selection of side bets on pairs and ties. The appealing setting makes you feel at home while playing at this live table.
