The Game Rules

Dragon Tiger by Pragmatic Play may have been inspired by live dealer Baccarat, and while there are similarities between the two games, the rules are different.

  • There are 2 hands on the table: Dragon and Tiger.
  • The 2 hands are dealt 1 card each.
  • Live casino players guess which hand will have the highest score.
  • The main bets that live dealer Baccarat players can place include Dragon, Tiger, Tie, and Suited Tie.
  • Players can place side bets:
  • Big
  • Small

  • Black
  • Main bet RTPs:

Given the differences between Dragon Tiger by Pragmatic Play and the other games available at our live casino, such as Speed Baccarat by Pragmatic Play, players in New Zealand might find it difficult to use popular live dealer Baccarat strategies when playing this game. The best option would be to stick to general gaming strategies such as setting a gaming budget, putting a time limit on gaming sessions, and setting personal win/loss limits.
