Playtech’s Eyecon Releases New Hit Me! Baccarat Game
June 27, 2018
Australian game developer Eyecon have added a new game to their impressive line up: Hit Me! Baccarat. The game, as the name suggests, is a take on the beloved casino game of Baccarat. It offers a fun and exciting opportunity to both new and established players.
Hit Me! Baccarat is set to win a new legion of fans thanks to its unique take on the existing baccarat game. In the version produced by Eyecon, the biggest twist is that a losing hand can still be a winner.
Furthermore, players are able to purchase an extra card, using dynamic odds, to enhance their chances of success. This, in turn, means that players have the opportunity to win up to 12 times their stake, though — of course — commission will still be deductible.
Let’s face it, too: the casino gaming industry has been in need of a shakeup for some time. The same old games, with the same old rules, have led to a stagnation for regular players.
Most of that number find themselves yearning for a chance to try something different. Eyecon have always had a knack for producing popular games. It comes as no surprise, then, that they have taken note of the malaise and sought to redress the balance.
Their blend of introducing an old game with a brand new twist ensures an excellent experience for all players. It chimes from those who are keen to try something new to those who prefer to stick to “old faithful” games they know and love.
Furthermore, Eyecon have ensured that the Hit Me! Baccarat benefits from their usual commitment to smooth, intuitive play. As usual, the game is aesthetically appealing without compromising on the smooth-running gameplay expected by modern players.
The introduction of Hit Me! Baccarat seems a sensible choice from Eyecon, given that the standard baccarat game has enjoyed hundreds of years of support from players across the globe. With this exciting new innovation, Eyecon have produced something truly innovative yet pleasingly familiar.
That’s a very difficult line to walk, and one that players will likely delight in.
The launch of Hit Me! Baccarat is just the latest excitement in a period of high intrigue for Eyecon. The company were acquired by industry giants Playtech in February 2017 in a £50 million deal.
This led to an entirely new start for the well-respected developers. Prior to their acquisition, Eyecon were probably best known for their wildly popular slots game Fluffy Favourites. They’ll be hoping the success of Hit Me! Baccarat will be able to match that level.
In fact, Hit Me! Baccarat is just the latest in a long line of releases from the Playtech-owned company. Recent announcements include a partnership with Sky Bingo that launched a game themed around the reality TV show Love Island.
Parent company Playtech have been making headlines also, with their acquisition of Snaitech. Without a doubt, this year has seen plenty of interesting developments for both Eyecon and its parent company. No doubt, that’s music to the ears of players!
