Saturday July 5,2014 : NEW FORM OF ONLINE BACCARAT LAUNCHED VIA ODOBO
Applejack Gaming's Baccarat Star features adds new bet types.
Odobo Marketplace, a platform that makes it easier for independent developers to launch new online gaming products, has taken on Applejack Gaming's latest game, Baccarat Star.
HTML5 developer AppleJack delivers a modern take on a casino classic by adding new bet types, as well as introducing a traditional tableau, also known as the tracking table or board, a popular feature in land-based versions of the game.
The intuitive format makes the game appealing to newcomers trying Baccarat for the first time while the tableau caters to more serious fans of the genre.
Players can use the tracking board to adopt a more informed betting strategy via an overview of their results, which includes a graph and numerical statistics; Big Road, with bonus tracking; Bead Plate; Big Eye Boy; Small Road and Cockroach Pig. All of this information is presented per-shoe.
The game also introduces an additional bonus bet option and incorporates symbols of virtue, grace and balance (such as carp and the Chinese phoenix) throughout the visuals. The bonus bet gives players the option of betting on the value by which the winning hand will triumph and is paid at higher odds.
Baccarat Star supports persistent state handling, allowing a player to pick up exactly where they left off, regardless of the continuation device. This is especially useful for players on the go and is made possible by using the latest tools and technologies offered to Odobo’s approved developers, which includes Game Development Kit.
Paul Overton, AppleJack Gaming founder, said Friday: “Building games via Odobo presented us with the opportunity to create a version of Baccarat that would genuinely stand out among the crowd. We’ve used the platform’s range of tools and technologies to produce Baccarat Star, a game we’re really proud of."
