No matter what software company devises the game Baccarat, it will always remain the same, but each variant of the game delivers a unique gaming experience with sometimes customisable options.

What makes the Baccarat version from Microgaming different to the rest?

Well, if you compare it to the same game from NetEnt, it offers a lower maximum payout of just 8:1, but you are able to bet on more than just one hand, unlike NetEnt’s version.

Microgaming deliver a basic gaming experience that encourages high rollers with high table limits, with crystal clear sounds and sharp graphics.

Baccarat Game Play and Rules

Sitting at the Baccarat table, you will notice that the cloth is your standard green cloth and it offers the player five gaming sections and within those sections, you can place bets on the tie, banker and player.

This version of baccarat is played with a single 52 deck of cards which is randomly shuffled before each hand.

Players are required to place bets on any of the three betting options to try and get as close to the number 9 as possible.

As with all versions of Baccarat, the card values of; 10, J, Q, K and A are all worth 0 points, whilst the numbered cards are the same value as the number displayed on them.

If you are dealt a hand of 8 or 9, the game will end, whilst a hand of 6 or 7 will allow you to stand and a hand of 0 to 5 will allow you to be dealt a new card.

Tie pays 8:1 in this version, opposed to Baccarat Pro from NetEnt, which pays 9:1 for a tie. Increase your bets and adjust settings via the lower screen, this is where you also monitor your bankroll.


The graphics offered by Microgaming for this table game are not the best we’ve come across, but at the end of the day, the players flock for the game itself and the overall experience.

Microgaming have set the table limits from a minimum of £10 to a maximum of £500, making this a perfect for high rollers looking to increase their big bets.

The hands are dealt fast, with your outcome displayed within a minute, so if you love long-drawn out games with increased thrills and excitement, you won’t find that here, but what you will find is quick and to the point gaming.
