Skycity first in NZ to offer Lucky 6

    SkyCity has announced the launch of the Baccarat side betting alternative, Lucky 6, which will be introduced across its properties in New Zealand. 

    The new side bet, which marks its debut in New Zealand, is now available in the VIP areas and Baccarat Room at SkyCity Auckland and will be coming to SkyCity Hamilton and SkyCity Queenstown in the coming weeks.

    Lucky 6 is popular amongst casinos in Asia, including Singapore. Last year, the Lucky 6 was approved by Macau regulators to be installed at its local casinos. 

    It has gained popularity due to the variety and odds it offers when playing Baccarat. 

    To win Lucky 6’s optional side bet, the ‘Banker’ must-win with a total of six points on either two or three cards. If the ‘Banker’ wins with two cards totaling six points the payout is 12 to 1, or if the ‘Banker’ wins with three cards totaling six points the payout is 20 to 1.

    To celebrate the launch, Skycity has transformed the  VIP areas and Baccarat Room at SkyCity Auckland with a Lucky 6 theme.

    These areas will also be serving free bubble tea, Lucky 6 cupcakes, and lollies, as well as exclusive promotional draws, which are taking place each afternoon and evening until the end of the week.
