Although very little information seems to be available about the origins of Dragon Tiger, it was almost certainly created in Cambodia. The game is uncommon in land based casinos outside of Cambodia, however its simplicity and easy scalability makes it a popular game in the live format. The name Dragon Tiger comes from the Buddhist philosophy of the balance of power. The tiger represents the strong, hard style of bulldozing the opponent whilst the dragon is softer, more patient and wiser. Neither competitor can defeat the other and thus they are worthy opponents.
What is Live Dragon Tiger?
Live Dragon Tiger is by far the simplest casino game, although its wide array of possible side bets do add some complexity to the game. The game is similar to Baccarat in that players do not compete against the dealer, but they choose between two possible outcomes; the dragon or the tiger. Dragon Tiger is highly suited to the live format as it is a fast and easily scalable game. The attraction of Dragon Tiger is its simplicity, leading to a smooth game without interruptions or hesitation. In other words, Live Dragon Tiger is a simple two-card game where you bet on which one of the cards will have the highest amount. But there is an added complexity where you can add some proposition bets on the individual cards.
