Scientific Games Launches ‘Dragon Tail Baccarat’

Scientific Games Corp. has launched Dragon Tail Baccarat, the first game in its new Quartz Standalone electronic table game format.

Quartz Standalone is an ETG with the ability to function and run a single game on its own, within its own player terminal.

Dragon Tail Baccarat provides a unique player experience with features such as Free Hand, which enables players to find “Hot Shoes” or trends, and an immediate results or “Bang Up” feature on the player touchscreen.

Unique to Dragon Tail Baccarat is the 3D animation of the card squeeze feature, which gives players an immersive real-life baccarat game play experience. Players have the option to control the card squeeze feature by tapping the screen, swiping from the corner or side of the card, by using the “rotate” or “reveal” buttons, or letting the machine run the reveal animation as the player watches. Available side bets include Super 6, Lucky 6, Fortune 7 and Dragon Bonus.

Operators can configure a selectable timer option, in addition to scheduled betting, to optimize peak periods. The Dragon Tail Baccarat trend board can be shown on any digital screen to the preference of the casino operator. The trend board includes game history, statistics and trend animations that display an eye-catching dragon that changes color as the trend continues and music intensifies.

Casinos and gaming properties can easily implement social distancing between Quartz terminals, and the smooth, flat surface of the player screen allows for easy cleaning and sanitization.
