How to Play Live Baccarat
If you have ever played Baccarat then you will find Live Baccarat very easy to get to grips with. It follows the standard game rules and has very easy user controls so that you can place bets quickly and easily. If you have never played before, don’t worry, as it is in fact a very simple game.
When you play Baccarat you will bet on Banker, Player or Tie, and the bet is on which person’s hand will be closer to nine at the end of a round. You begin a round by placing a bet and once all bets have been placed, the Player and the Banker are dealt two cards each.
In Baccarat, Aces are worth 1, number cards (2 through 10) are worth their face value and face cards (Jack, Queen and King) are worth 10. If the total of the two cards is greater than ten (e.g. a 6 and a 7, which is worth 13), then ten is subtracted from the total (so 6 and 7 are worth 3).
In some situations, a third card may be dealt to either of the positions. If a hand is worth 8 or 9 then no further cards are dealt and the hand is known as a Natural. If the Player position is worth 5 or less, then a third card is dealt to it. If the Player position does not receive a third card, the Banker position stands on 6 or more and will draw on 5 or less.
If the Player position has received a third card then the Banker position obeys the following rules. If the Banker total is 2 or less then the bank receives a third card. If the Banker has a total of 3 then they will draw a third card if the Player’s third card is not an 8. If the Banker’s total is 5 then the Banker draws a card if the Player’s third card is a 4, 5, 6 or 7. If the Banker total is 6 then the Banker draws a third card if the Player’s third card is a 6 or 7. The Banker will stand on a total of 7 or higher.
Don’t worry if this sounds complicated, the dealer will handle it all for you and in time it is sure to become second nature.
At the end of a round, a winning bet pays out at 2:1, except for a winning Tie bet, which pays out 8:1.
Special Features and Side Bets
Many players enjoy looking for patterns using special roads when playing Baccarat. Our Live Baccarat games offer a wide selection of roads to help you to this. The Bead Road and the Big Road display the results of each past round, while you can use the Big Eye Road, Small Road and Cockroach Road to look for patterns derived from the Big Road. This way you can build a betting strategy and hopefully increase your winnings.
Another way of increasing your winnings is with the side bets that many of the games offer. You can place Player Pair and Banker Pair side bets, a bet on either the player’s or the banker’s first two cards being a pair, if they are then you win a payout of 11:1. Some games also offer Player Bonus, Banker Bonus, Either Pair and Perfect Pairs side bets, which offer payouts of up to 200:1 (and make the game even more exciting.
Baccarat players will know that the ritual of the squeeze is something that makes the game even more exciting. If you enjoy the squeeze then be sure to take a seat at our Live Baccarat Squeeze tables. More than 15 cameras cover the game, and the important squeeze is performed by the dealer and captured in a number of thrilling close-up shots. The dealer will quickly reveal the cards for the hand associated with the smaller total wager and then squeeze the cards dealt to the hand with the greatest total wager, making the reveal extremely exciting.
