U.S.-based Galaxy Gaming said it has bought Baccarat Fightback boosting the company’s portfolio of Asian-style offerings.
The game was highlighted at the UNLV Gaming Innovation Showcase in 2019 and Galaxy acquired the product from Tiange Xu of the UNLV Center for Gaming Innovation.
As well as boosting its Asia-focused offerings, the product “adds to the growing list of new, cross-platform content ideal for iGaming and traditional land-based venues, Galaxy said in a press statement. .
Baccarat Fightback’s creator, Tiange Xu, is a first-year master’s student at UNLV and holds a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and Casino Management from the University of Macau. Prior to his studies at UNLV, Tiange worked in the casino industry in Macau, Cambodia, and the Northern Mariana Islands. The experience he gained played a pivotal role in his game’s design.
“Thanks to the UNLV Center for Gaming Innovation and Galaxy Gaming, my dream has come true. When I went to a casino for the first time, I told myself I wanted to have my own game on the floor one day. Now, that is going to happen. Baccarat Fightback introduces a new way of playing Baccarat, bringing more fun and excitement to players. I firmly believe it will stand out among other Baccarat variants,” stated Tiange Xu.
