Company to Bring Popular California Card-Room Game to Casinos Worldwide
LAS VEGAS, March 2017 – AGS (“the Company”) announced today that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with EGC LLC that will allow the Company to begin worldwide distribution of the popular commission-free baccarat table game, Dai Bacc™, outside of California card rooms. Over the last year, Dai Bacc has gained a following among players in Southern California card rooms, thanks to its three bonus bets that offer the possibility to hit at least 30-1 odds on every round.
“Dai Bacc’s distinctive bonus bets offer very high payout potential with the introduction of The Kill Bet™, which means players have an added advantage of winning even if the other two side bets lose,” said John Hemberger, AGS’ Senior Vice President of Table Products. “Because of its appealing bet structure, we believe Dai Bacc has the potential to become one of the most popular baccarat variations in the world, and our goal is to bring the power of Dai Bacc to casinos worldwide through our well-established sales network.”
“Dai” is a universal Asian term meaning “big” or “large,” and it’s used to describe “the best” of something in multiple Asian languages, thus immediately appealing to a large audience. Dai Bacc’s game-play experience is exceptionally unique because it follows the same game rules and procedures as traditional commission-free baccarat, but with three bonus bets – The Tiger 7™ and Ox 6®, which pay 40-1 odds, and The Kill Bet, which pays 30-1 odds. The combination of all three bonus bets offers an extremely high payout potential and gives players a chance to win even if they lose The Tiger 7 and Ox 6 bets. Additionally, there is also a possibility to win two bonus bets during a single round, which means players can win up to 70-1 odds.
“Dai Bacc is a simple, clean game that provides an incredibly compelling gambling experience for players and high-performance potential for casino operators,” added Hemberger. “We look forward to expanding Dai Bacc’s footprint and expect to have success similar to what we’ve had with Buster Blackjack®. Ultimately, AGS’ goal is to continue to offer customers a variety of choices for the games and technology they incorporate into their pits, and Dai Bacc is a powerful addition to our library.”
