Game play is smooth and enhanced by fascinating, life like card handling animations wherein one gets to peek at Player and Dealer hands by lifting the corner of the cards and then turning them over just as you would in a brick and mortar casino's Baccarat games. To do this you simply have to position your cursor at the corner of the card to peek, and then move it further or click on the Squeeze button to turn it over. You can even rotate the cards before peeking at them, so if you do this for luck in offline Baccarat games, you can now do the same online.

Two additional noteworthy features include the History and Roadmap functions. The History function is standard across most Microgaming Baccarat games and shows you the outcomes of the hands that you have played in the sequence in which they were dealt. A blue button with the letter "P" inscribed on it denotes a Player win, a red button marked with a "B" indicates a Banker win and a green button marked with the letter "T" shows a Tie.

The Roadmap function is a derivative of the History function and is great if you are interested in advanced Baccarat analysis. The Roadmap consists of four separate charts, each with their own name Big Eye Road, Big Road, Small Road and Cockroach Road. The Big Road resembles that of the history chart but instead of buttons its indicators are hollow circles. It is very easy to read with the first outcome of a hand being marked in the first row of the first column. If subsequent hand outcomes prove to be the same as this initial outcome, indicators are added below it in the same column. If however the outcomes change, a new column is added to the chart. This provides players with information on the same types of outcomes during a game at a glance, which can be helpful in determining if certain pattern trends are taking place. The other three Roadmaps are more complex and are only useful for more advanced analysis and use in complex Baccarat Strategy.
