|Betfair Games has launched Exchange Baccarat - their take on the classic card game. True to Betfair’s model, Exchange Baccarat allows customers to set their own odds and back and lay as the game unfolds.|
James Bond’s favourite pastime (well, second favourite) is one of the best value games on the Internet and joins Betfair’s successful Exchange Games portfolio, adding to Exchange Poker and Exchange Blackjack, which have attracted more than 35,000 customers since their inception last year.
Exchange games were the brainchild of Betfair’s co-founder Andrew ‘Bert’ Black and internally, the latest game has been renamed Bert’s Baccarat in his honour.
Betfair’s Director of Games, Steve Ives said: “Exchange games are a fantastic innovation. Never before has such a level playing field been created for online gaming. Exchange Baccarat is a better value offer than the traditional game because customers can choose the odds they want to bet at.”
Exchange Baccarat is expected to be popular in the Asian market where baccarat is the game that every wannabe high-roller is playing. Betfair hopes to tap in to the online market, relying on the inherent fairness of its system and the better value it offers over the traditional game.
