In Live Baccarat, the Banker and the player are each dealt a hand from eight standard 52-card decks.
The aim of the game are to accurately predict which hand will be closest to a sum of nine.
At the beginning of the game, you will have the option to bet on the winning hand or on a tie between the two.
Once the betting time has expired, you and the Banker will each receive two cards.
When both hands equal the same total, a Tie is declared and all bets (except Tie bets) are voided.
If the value of either hands is an eight or a nine, then no more cards will be dealt to either hand.
If the value of either hands is zero to seven, then the hands will draw in accordance with the 'Third Card Rule'.
Third Card Rule
After the first two cards are dealt, the 'Third Card Rule' may require a third card to be dealt.
For the player to draw a third card, the player's first two cards must total 0-5.
For the Banker to draw a third card, the Banker's first two cards must total 0-2.
If either hand totals 8-9, then this is known as a 'Natural' and both hands must stand.
Should the Banker's hand total 3-6, then your third card will determine whether the Banker will draw a third card or stand.
In this situation, the following rules will apply:
|Banker's Hand||Banker draws if Player's third card is:||Banker does not draw if Player's third card is:|
|7||Banker’s hand must stand||Banker’s hand must stand|
|8-9 'Natural'||Banker’s hand must stand||Banker’s hand must stand|
If you have selected to play at a "pairs" table, you will also have the option to bet on either hand's first two cards being a pair.
The payoff for either bet is 11:1.
Return to Player
The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.
For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average pay out £98.94 of wins on Baccarat, and 89.64% in Pairs.
