NetEnt Speed Baccarat is a live casino table game built for baccarat pros. If you do not feel like waiting for dealers to reveal cards, this is the perfect table for you. Rounds go by quickly, as hosts deal cards in a face up position immediately. Video quality is excellent, allowing NetEnt to keep up with more seasoned competitors easily. You also have a live chat option to talk to the dealer and other players.
The maximum RTP you can get from playing Speed Baccarat is 98.94%, achieved by only playing banker bets. Punters will able to play six side bets – big and small, player and banker pairs, and player and banker bonus.
Before you can enjoy baccarat, you need to sort out your bets first. Players have a limited time to set their stakes. The clock is ticking even faster than usual to provide the fastest possible round! Fortunately, once you set up a wager you like, you can quickly play it again using re-bet. Any wagers on the playing field when the timer runs out will be accepted and played.
The host will proceed to draw two cards for both the player and banker hand. These cards are placed face-up immediately and are drawn one at a time. If needed, the dealer will also draw a third card for one or both sides. The two hands are then compared. The hand closest to numbers eight or nine will be declared the winning hand. If both hands have the same sum value, the result will be a tie.
NetEnt also provide detailed roadmaps and statistics that are visible at all times. The latter allow you to check results at a glance, which we found to be an upgrade over standard roadmaps. However, if you want to stick with what you know, they are still available for you to enjoy.
Big and Small side bets are the easiest to understand. These wagers grant cash if the sum of both hands is the correct value. Small pays if the sum of both hands is four, granting a 3:2 payout. The RTP for Small bets is 94.72%. Meanwhile, Big pays 1:2 if the sum of both hands is five or six. The RTP for Big bets is 93.17%.
Players can also choose to play player or banker pairs. Here, you are hoping that the two cards drawn for the player or banker hand will be identical in value. The game does not check whether the pair has matching colours or suits – only the value matters. No matter if you play the player or banker pair, both result in an 11:1 reward.
Finally, we have the player and banker bonus bets. Here, punters get a reward if their chosen hand gets a natural win against the opponent. It also grants increasing payouts depending on the point difference between the hands. A win with a four-point difference results in a 1:1 payout. Meanwhile, a nine-point difference will result in a 30:1 reward.
Side bets give us better rewards, but if you want the best return to player, you play the main bets. Banker wagers offer the best return, with an RTP of 98.94% but only a 0.95:1 payout. Player bets pay an even 1:1, with a slightly lower RTP of 98.76%. One main bet we would recommend avoiding is the Tie wager. While it pays 8:1, its RTP is only 85.64%. Much lower than the other two.
NetEnt’s Speed Baccarat was a much-needed addition to the developer’s live casino library. The team brings their previous expertise to create a fast-paced baccarat table, which will be enjoyed for years to come. If what you have read sounds like your cup of tea, we wholeheartedly suggest checking this game out.
