Ruyi Baccarat will soon be available to play in more casinos across North America thanks to an agreement struck between BCLC and Light & Wonder.

The BCLC first launched the commission-free game at casinos in the Canadian province in early 2020, and it has gone on to become a huge favorite among players.

Ruyi Baccarat is currently available in 14 BC casinos, with plans to bring the commission-free game to BCLC’s PlayNow.com in the future, and it will be made available to Light & Wonder’s players from Sept. 9 through an exclusive licensing agreement.

Mike McKiski, Senior Vice President of Global Table Gaming, Light & Wonder, commented: “Ruyi Baccarat combines time-honored cultural traditions from the origins of baccarat with a more traditional non-commission game play approach to deliver a truly elevated player experience.

“Partnering with BCLC and being named the exclusive licensee of Ruyi Baccarat reinforces our commitment to ensuring our customers have access to the best games available for their casino floors.”

Dan Beebe, BCLC’s Chief Operating Officer, added: “BCLC is used to bringing vendors’ games to British Columbia, so to be the organization that’s providing a made-in-house table game to a licensee is a nice change and speaks volumes about our quest to be a leader in the casino industry.

“We are always seeking out new ways to be an innovator and challenge the status quo, and by partnering with Light & Wonder, a world-class gaming company, we have full confidence that Ruyi Baccarat will grow in popularity across North America.”

Elsewhere, BCLC recently joined forces with Evolution to launch two new high-limit live casino tables – VIP Blackjack and VIP Baccarat – for online players in BC, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
