Evolution Gaming have released another variation of the popular Baccarat Squeeze, Baccarat Controlled Squeeze.
They are not the first to implement this functionality but of the ones I’ve seen this is probably the best & easiest to use.
Rather than having the dealer squeeze the cards, players are now able to squeeze them for themselves which is very much in line with how the game is played in land based casinos.
The only difference is that all players can squeeze the cards where traditionally the player that has bet the highest for the hand has had that honour.
The Baccarat Controlled Squeeze table has been modified to enable players to perform the squeeze themselves.
Two cameras have been integrated under the table and they relay the live stream of the card faces to the playing interface.
Both sets of cards are displayed on the screen but are obscured by a frosted filter and an interactive peel-back overlay.
To view the cards you just use your mouse or pointer to click or tap the corner of the card and peel the overlay away to reveal the cards value.
If you can’t be bothered to do that then just clicking on the card will reveal it instantly.
The squeeze is time boxed so you have to be relatively quick if you want to view all the cards.
What I particularly like about the playing interface is you can practice your squeeze without having to play the hand. Leo Vegas have the game if you want to have a look or checkout my list of Evolution Live Casinos for more options.
This version of the game can be played on Desktop, Tablet and Smartphone.
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria i used to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make logical sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino. Did I have a good time?, are the dealers nice and chatty?, is everything easy to understand?. Does it have a good set of games, is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use, does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and the video streaming fast.? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options?. Do they payout quickly & on time.?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place. Are they regularly audited. Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat?, are they quick to respond?. Are they able to help me immediately?. Do they have an online FAQ and self help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product i’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits.
After all that would I play there regularly?
