About EZ Baccarat^™

EZ Baccarat is a revolutionary method of accelerating the speed of baccarat by
eliminating the commission. The winning hand Bank commission is replaced by
"barring" one specific winning Bank hand. The EZ Baccarat method bars a three
card total of seven and is trademarked as the "Dragon 7™". Players can also
make optional side wagers called Dragon 7 and Panda 8. The Dragon 7 is when
the Banker wins with a total of seven consisting of three cards and pays 40 to
1. The Panda 8 is when the Player wins with a total of eight consisting of
three cards and pays 25 to 1. The EZ Baccarat methodology and side bets bet
were co-created by Robin Powell and TJ Tejeda of Talisman Group. These methods
and trademarks are protected within the scope of DEQ's no commission baccarat
intellectual property portfolio that protects all methodologies such as barred
hands and reduced banked winning wagers.
