A new game from Evolution is on its way into live casinos and it’s another exciting dice title. Adding to Sic Bo, Lightning Dice, and Craps comes Bac Bo. This is a title that brings 3 bets from Baccarat into the mix, which are the ‘Banker’, ‘Player’, and ‘Tie’ bets. And of course, Evolution is looking to marry up Sic Bo and Baccarat with this game, hence the name ‘Bac’ + ‘Bo’.
Looking more closely at live Bac Bo, the gameplay is more like Dragon Tiger because the highest total for each of the bets wins the round with no extra dice (cards) coming onto the table. Moreover. just to be clear or avoid any confusion, this is a live game presented by an entertaining host/croupier and is available in Evolution live casinos this year.
It’s an easy game to learn, and certainly less complex than Craps and has the same uncomplicated gameplay as baccarat. The key difference from baccarat aside from the obvious is that there are 2 positions for dice on each of the main bets ‘Player’ + ‘Banker’, while baccarat has just a single position for cards.
The game produces non-computer-generated results thanks to the auto dice rolling/shacking machine, which flips them to produce the result. There are 4 pockets with 1 dice in each (2 pockets for ‘Banker’ + 2 pockets for ‘Player’, and the pockets will lower to shake the dice. The ‘Player’ dice 1 outcome will stop first, followed by the ‘Banker’ dice 1, then ‘Player’ dice 2, and ‘Banker’ dice 2, adding some suspense to the game. Once the results have been produced, the pockets stop, rise, and the croupier will announce the outcome. This is in fact a new technology for shaking dice different to other games like Monopoly Live, Craps, and Lightning dice, which all use a closed dice shaking machine.
Quote Game Stats: The game’s RTP is 98.87%. There are 4 dice shakers, 2 for the dealer + 2 for the banker, and these dice stop in sequential order. Furthermore, the game comes with a results history that will not reset ever. Finally, each betting round lasts between 15 and 20 seconds, making it a fairly speedy game.
Playing Bac Bo Live & Payouts–Win up to 88x your bet!
You can find out more about Bac Bo on the Evolution website, while we’ll also give you some pointers on how to play here, while we’ll also cover some of the payouts. As for spotting whether the ‘Banker’ or ‘Player’ won, this is easy. The highest total wins, while if there a ‘Tie’, then you win a higher amount.
- Placing Bets: All you need to do is place your bet(s) on the ‘Player’, ‘Banker’, and/or ‘Tie’ and let the action roll out. Obviously betting a combination of the ‘Player’ + ‘Banker’ is not a good bet, but any combination of the ‘Player’ + ‘Tie’ or ‘Banker’ + ‘Tie’ is a good bet.
- Tie Bet Payouts: For tie bets, you can get paid up to 88-1 on your bet with 10% taken off that final amount. ‘Banker’ and ‘Player’. Payouts: (’88:1’ if 2 or 12 totals tie), (’25:1’ if a 3 or 11 totals tie), (’10:1’ if a 4 or 10 totals tie), (‘6:1 if a 5 or 9 totals tie), and (‘4:1’ if 6, 7 or 8 totals tie).
- Banker/Player: When the Banker/Player bet wins you get 1:1, so your original bet returned and 1 or 100% worth of your bet on top. If there is a draw and you did not bet on the ‘Tie’, then you receive ‘0.9:1’, so that’s your bet returned and 0.9 or 90% of your bet on top as profit.
Strategy: As this is a new game, but one that uses familiar outcomes (Hi-Lo), you can use most Dragon Tiger strategies or Evolution’s Football Studio to play. The general rule of thumb is choose ‘Banker’ or ‘Player’ and then stick to that bet for your session. If you feel like switching, then do so for at least 20 rounds at a time.
