How to play Live Baccarat and Baccarat rules
Baccarat might seem daunting to beginners, but it’s fairly simple. In a regular game, the dealer will use six to eight decks of cards and deal a Banker’s Hand and a Player’s Hand. It’s then down to you to bet on whether the Banker’s Hand or the Player’s Hand will get nearest to the total, which is nine. You can also bet on a draw, which pays at 8:1. If the first two cards dealt to the player combine to make a total of six or more, then the player must stand. If the value is five or less, then the player is dealt another card. If the banker’s first two cards equal seven or more, then the banker has to stand. However, if their hand is 0, 1 or 2 then they will receive one more card. If the banker’s hand is 3, 4, 5 or 6 then the player is asked to choose whether they would like another card. If they’re dealt another card, then the banker must also take another. If the cards that are dealt add up to more than 9, then their total value is added together and the 1 is taken away to produce a total. To give an example, if a player was dealt two 8s to make 16, the 1 would be taken away to leave a total of 6. If the cards dealt add up to exactly 8 or 9 for both the player or the dealer, then they must stand. If the player chooses to stand, then the dealer must receive another card if their total is 5 or less.
Other Baccarat Bets
It’s not just the Banker’s Hand, Player’s Hand or Draw which players can bet on. It’s also possible to bet on a Player Pair or Banker Pair, both of which pay at 11:1. Then there’s a Perfect Pair, which pays at 25:1 and Either Pair which pays at 5:1. You can also bet on individual points totals from 0 through to 9. 2 is the biggest number total payout at 220:1.
