The game is particularly popular in Asia, and allows players the chance to place additional bets with the chance of winning through an Ante and Wager option. Players are able to pull out of the game with just the Ante bet, as they are able to see the first card dealt.
Commenting on the deal Ezugi Business Development Manager Mathias Larsson said, "Knockout Baccarat has been proven to increase Baccarat revenues for land-based casinos, so we are excited to be able to deliver the game to online operators as well."
Racing Card Derby CEO Anthony Brown added: "The success of baccarat is quite clear with the highest casino revenue of any table game. The added bets are popular with land-based casinos and the alliance with Ezugi will allow players access online to a full range of new betting options, while playing their regular baccarat game."
"Knockout Baccarat side-bets add to the player excitement, increases the casino turnover and ultimately makes for a more engaging baccarat game." We look forward to the launch of these options on the Ezugi live-feed platform."
