NetEnt beefs up Live Casino offering with New Baccarat title

In another move designed to further its expansion, NetEnt has added its first Baccarat game to its live casino portfolio.

The online content provider recently revealed that it has created 3 Baccarat tables, two of which are housed in its physical studio to create a realistic casino experience for the brand’s operator partners and its players. The Baccarat tables join NetEnt’s existing Blackjack and Roulette games.

The third table operates as a standalone, employing the company’s chroma key technology to create an affordable and easily customizable solution for online gambling operators.

The new Baccarat tables feature two different camera angles for full player immersion and allow for an unlimited number of players to participate.

This new release is the most recent innovation produced by NetEnt and will allow the brand to further position itself as a market leader in the cut-throat live casino sector.

Over 18 months, NetEnt’s Live division has debuted a series of new games that include Perfect Blackjack and Auto Roulette Studio. The company has also grown its live casino studio in Qormi, Malta with the addition of three new standard blackjack tables to bolster its offering.

Growing market share

NetEnt’s Live Director, Andres Rengifo said that the new Baccarat title would allow the brand to “reach new players and support the needs of our partners for innovative game variants that attract a wider and more diverse audience.”

Mr Rengifo further stated that went on to say that the introduction of the game forms part of a localization strategy, and together with the existing Blackjack and Roulette offerings, will assist NetEnt in growing its market reach in the live casino sector.

NetEnt Live recently expanded its regulated footprint after making its portfolio available in Lithuania with Betsafe, an online casino and sports betting provider that forms part of Betsson.

NetEnt’s seemingly imminent acquisition by Live Casino maverick, Evolution, tabled in mid-2020, sees the company valued at SEK19.6 billion (approx. $2.2 billion). This deal’s future is hanging in the balance while the UK Competition and Markets Authority reviews its terms. The regulator is due to announce whether the transaction may proceed by mid-November with NetEnt’s shareholders also waiting to voice their approval.
