Online PR News – 09-May-2013 – Melbourne, VIC – Live dealer baccarat developed specifically for play on iOS devices has now been launched.
Baccarat in simple Punto Banco format has been offered as a live dealer game playable on PC’s for some time now. It is one of the three commonly offered live dealer casino games, along with roulette and blackjack.
Now, thanks to developers Evolution Gaming and a small but growing number of adopting licensee casinos, live dealer baccarat can be played on iPad. The first available version launched at the end April and is accessible in the UK Apple’s App Store (for UK players only). In the week since, both Ladbrokes and Sky Vegas have made the game available from their mobile sites with no requirement to access the App Store.
The launch of live baccarat for iPad is significant as it means the three principal live dealer games can all now be played on the world’s most popular tablet device. Both roulette (last year) and blackjack (January this year) are already available.
The term ‘live dealer’ denotes the fact that the deal involves real playing cards and an actual dealer, with vision live streamed to players’ computers enabling them to participate in the game remotely. Live dealer software for play on PC’s has been typically developed using Flash which isn’t supported on iOS devices, necessitating the use of alternate technologies for iPad live casino games.
