Wizard Games is rolling out its new Magic Baccarat release, an innovative version of the beloved casino classic (and the favorite of James Bond, no less). Magic Baccarat has all the typical baccarat bets, including Player, Banker, and Tie, but the creative geniuses at Wizard Games have added some twists to make the game more fun.
For example, they've eliminated the commission of the Banker bet, so it pays out 1:1. Wizard games has also added special side bets like Player Pair and Banker Pair that offer 11:1 payouts. The Super 6 bet offers a payout of 12:1. Players can keep track of their wins and losses with the handy Bead Plate, featured to the left of the virtual table.
While Magic Baccarat is a modern twist on an old favorite, the game itself is laid back, with a smooth jazz soundtrack playing in the background so players can leisurely place their bets.
Magic Baccarat has an RTP of 98.76%, a max multiplier of 13x, and a max win of €520,000. In terms of bets, the minimum bet is €1.00, the default bet is €5.00, and the maximum bet is €500 per hand.
Before jumping into Magic Baccarat, we recommend becoming familiar with the basic rules and bets of the classic casino favorite. Once you’ve got the basics down, moving onto a game like Magic Baccarat will be incredibly fun. You can even try out a demo before putting down real money.
Here are the basic rules of baccarat:
The goal of the game is to bet correctly on the hand of the banker or the player. The hand that’s closest to the number 9 wins. Cards between 2 and 9 are worth their face value, while 10s through Kings are worth 0, and aces are worth 1.
Before the cards are dealt, players can bet on three possible outcomes:
- The player will win
- The banker will win
- They’ll tie
Once bets are placed, the dealer deals the cards face up, two for the player and two for the banker. If the dealt cards add up to more than 9, the dealer adds the two values together and drops the first digit to get the value. For example, if a player gets a hand of 8 and 6, the value totals 14. The player should drop the 1, remaining with a hand valued at 4.
In Magic Baccarat, the goal is the same: predict the hand that’s closer to 9. Additionally, players should try to get the pairs and/or the Super 6.
