How to Play Live Baccarat
Live Baccarat is played at a real bean-shaped Baccarat table just as it is in a land casino. The aim of a game of Baccarat is very simple, it is just to build a hand of cards as close in value to nine as possible.
To start a round you need to bet on the player, the banker or a tie. There are also various side bets that you can place to make the game even more exciting. When all bets have been placed you will receive two face-up cards, as will the dealer. Aces count as one, cards two through ten count as their face values and the face cards also count as ten. If the hand is worth more than ten then ten is subtracted from the total. For instance, a hand of 16 is worth 6.
There are some situations where a third card is dealt to either the player or the dealer. The player receives an additional card if their hand is worth between zero and five. If the hand is worth six or seven then it stands. If the player stands then the banker hits on a total of 5 or less. However, if the player does hit then the banker will draw a card if their hand is worth seven or less and depending on the value of the player’s third card. For instance, if the banker’s first two cards are worth five, they will draw a third card if the player’s third card was 4, 5, 6 or 7. In all circumstances if the player and/or the banker has a total of 8 or 9 then they will both stand. Further details can be found in the game’s rules.
All winning bets are paid out at 2:1 except for a successful bet on a tie, which is paid out at 8:1.
