A Guide to Live Baccarat Online
While not as well known as roulette and blackjack, you’ll nevertheless find baccarat in casinos across the world, with popular versions of online baccarat games including Punto Banco, Baccarat Squeeze and Speed Baccarat.
Live baccarat is one of the most popular live casino games, largely because it is a fun and easy game to play, while the house edge is also one of the very best around for players.
Live Baccarat Explained
If you’re wondering whether live baccarat rules differ in comparison to normal online baccarat games, the good news is that, no – they don’t.
Baccarat is an easy game to get to grips with. Two hands are dealt on each table: the player hand and the banker hand. The first thing to note, though, is that people betting on the game can choose to bet on whatever they like, they ‘player hand’ and ‘banker hand’ are just names. The basic premise of the game is that all cards have a value and the hand closest to nine without going over that amount wins.
However, it’s not possible to bust in baccarat as you would in blackjack. If the cards’ value goes over nine and into double figures, the first figure is removed and just the second digit is used. For example, a 13 would be a 3 and a 17 would become a 7.
Players also don’t have any decisions about sticking or hitting in baccarat. Whether a third card is drawn depends totally on the hand that was initially dealt. So, for example, if either the player or banker hits an eight or nine, they automatically stay, while a six or seven for the player stays, while the banker just stays on a seven – the latter is an important point as this actually mean the game slightly favours the banker’s hand, making this the best value bet in the game.
