Baccarat Pro is one of the games from NetEnt's collection of 'Professional Series' casino games. It follows fairly standard baccarat rules.
Each deal starts with a bet. There are 1, 5 and 10 value chips to use in your chosen currency, and you can bet per hand from 1 to 100. You drag the chips to the table to bet. Annoyingly, you can't drag them off again – you have to select a chip with a cross through it and drag that to the table to make your existing chips disappear.
The game is played with a shoe containing eight decks, and there are only three bets available: Player, Banker or Tie.
Winning bets on the player pay 2:1, while winning bets on the banker pay the same with a five percent commission charge removed. Ties pay out at 9:1.
Naturally with baccarat the trick is to bet on the winning hand (or a tie). Once you have made your bet click the 'deal' button. Cards flip nicely out of the shoe and onto the table, two cards for the player and two for the banker. The player draws a third card if their hand is worth five or less. The banker draws a third card if the player stands and their total is five or less. If the player does not stand, the banker gets a third card depending on the player's total.
A list of the last ten hands played is maintained on the left hand side of the game screen.
The timing of the cards is set nicely so you are able to work out the status of the hand before any third cards are dealt. The graphics look great and the animations are super smooth.
The theoretical house edge for this game is 1.04 percent.
This is a great-looking game with only one annoyance – the inability to drag chips off the table. Everything else is spot on, though, as you would expect with any type of NetEnt software. We also like the way the game can be configured to work one of three ways – low roller, standard and high roller, and chip values and min/max values are adjusted accordingly. There's certainly enough here for any baccarat fan.
