LIVE BACCARAT GAMEPLAY AND RULES
The gameplay behind live baccarat is similar to typical baccarat with a few exceptions. There are only three outcomes with this game: a Player win, a Banker win or a Tie.
The player’s main goal is to wager on the hand which they predict will reach a value that's closest to nine. The game is played with a total of eight decks to help ensure randomness in the game.
At the beginning of every round, players can set bets within an allotted time-frame when the ‘PLACE YOUR BETS’ sign is active. The types of bets that can be set vary from one live baccarat game to another as there would be many options to choose from. Thus, this game is perfect for all those players who enjoy a bit of simplicity in their gaming while also enjoying great payouts.
The round begins when the Player and the Banker receive two cards face up. The values of each card are calculated as follows:
- Cards from two to nine have their face value.
- 10s, jacks, queens and kings are worth zero points.
- Aces are worth one point.
If the Player hand has a value of five or less, then an additional card will be drawn. This is known as the Third Card Rule. With a value of 6-7, the Player stands. A value of 8-9 is called a 'natural', no additional card will be drawn for the hand. Whether or not the Banker hand draws a third card is dependent on the Banker's initial two cards and whether or not the Player's hand received a third card, as well as its value.
If a bet is placed on the Player hand and won, then a payout of 1:1 is earned. If a Banker bet is placed and won, then a payout of 95% of your original bet may be earned. The round would only be considered a tie if the Player and Banker hold a hand of equal value. In this case, the players who placed a Tie bet would receive their corresponding payout.
Again, although the basic rules of the game are still the same, different variants of baccarat come with their own added features or side bets that can be placed that you may not find in every baccarat game you play. Luckily, each game comes with its own detailed explanation of the rules of the game so you should find no trouble grasping the overall gameplay.
