EZ Baccarat Approved In Macau

Table-game system supplier DEQ Systems Corporation announced that its “EZ Baccarat” system, a no-commission baccarat game with a side bet, has been approved for release in Macau.

EZ Baccarat, which has been spreading rapidly in California’s Indian casinos, accelerates baccarat speed by eliminating the commission. The winning hand bank commission is replaced by “barring” one specific winning bank hand and/or reducing the banked winning wagers. The EZ Baccarat method, carrying the trademark “Dragon 7,” bars a three-card total of seven. Players can also make a side wager as to the occurrence of the Dragon 7.

The game already has an order for four tables at Wynn Macau, which is the casino that requested its approval.

“We have been working a long while for this significant approval, and it has certainly been worth it,” said Earle G. Hall, president and CEO of DEQ. “Macau has by far the largest concentration of baccarat tables in the world, and this approval is a great start to our Asian commercialization strategy for this revenue-generating product.”
