How To Play Dragon Tiger

Dragon Tiger is essentially a two-card Baccarat version favored by Asian players. One could also say it’s an Asian version of Casino War, as only one card is dealt to each hand and the goal is to predict which one will be higher. They say Dragon Tiger was first played in Cambodia and represents a symbolic battle between Yin and Yang. Thanks to simple rules and fast gameplay, it’s becoming increasingly popular even outside of Asia.

How to Play Live Dragon Tiger

Dragon, Tiger and Tie are three basic bets one can place in this game. If you’re familiar with Baccarat, you’ll know that terms Player and Banker don’t refer to you and the dealer, they are simply two hands one can wager on. The same applies to Dragon Tiger. Since each side receives a single card, there is no need to calculate hand totals. All you need to know is that Ace is the lowest card valued at zero and King the highest. Winning Dragon and Tiger bets pay even money, while Tie payouts differ by the developer.

To make the game more interesting, nearly all providers have included several optional side bets. You’ll need to choose among available bet types to place a wager and wait for the dealer to reveal two cards which determine whether you’ll win or lose. As far as strategy is concerned, you’ll see many players betting on the last winner in hope of catching a winning streak. One can alternatively engage in a card-counting exercise normally associated with Blackjack but equally usable to track suits or big / small cards when playing Dragon Tiger.
