Live casino gamingLive gaming- for Baccarat and every other gaming- is a model in which casino gamers can access their favorite games from their device screens in real time. This means they are able to interact with the casino as if they had visited the real house. They see the casino dealer as he plays out different hands and they are able to communicate with the croupier and (in some models) other online players. The live casino gaming model is made possible by the use of video streaming. Players activate the stream by clicking on a button on the casino’s website. For this to happen, the player needs to have a compatible device e.g. the required Android or iOS version and a functioning flash player. They will also need a strong internet connection so that the casino activity can load without delays.
Rules of traditional BaccaratEven before playing online Baccarat, one needs to know how to play the game itself. You probably have an idea of at least one of the three variants, but a quick recap for refresher purposes and for those who may only be coming to the game for the first time. Baccarat has three variants which are widely popular across gaming platforms all over the world. These are:
- Punto Banco (North American Baccarat)
- Baccarat Banque (á Deux tableaux)
- Baccarat Chemin de Fer (Chemmy)
Punto BancoThe game which is the most popular Baccarat variant in the US, UK and all over Europe involves playing two hands at every turn. The player (Punto) and banco (banker) hands are what the dealer draws and what players bet on. The objective of the game is to bet on which hand will end up with a total closest to nine. This creates three possible outcomes: a player win, a banker win or a tie. Players can lay a wager on any of these outcomes. There are, however, different rules guiding each wager, as well as definitive advantages and disadvantages.
Card rulesCards carry different values. The ace has a value of one while the cards 2-9 carry their actual value. Depending on the rules of a particular casino, tens and face cards may have a value of ten or zero.
PlayingSix or eight decks of cards are shuffled together and placed in a shoe, which is a device made for the specific purpose of holding many cards at a go. The purpose of using several decks is to minimize the number of times a dealer will be required to shuffle cards. It also gives players confidence since it reduces the chances and tendency to cheat from the house end. Once cards are shuffled, the dealer then deals one card face up to the player hand. He then deals another card to the banker’s hand before returning to the player hand and winding up with a second banker hand. Once each hand has been two cards, the game is then said to be rolling and the first analysis is done. The dealer then calls each hand’s total and, if there is a winner, an announcement is made. Remember the objective is to finish with a sum as close as possible to nine. Where cards add up to a number greater than nine, the final digit of the sum is considered. For example, if a hand has a six and an eight (sum 14), the total of that hand is four. The first deal of two cards is known as a ‘natural.’
WinningIf either hand ends with a sum of eight or nine, the dealer calls time and the game ends with that natural. If not, the game continues, starting with the player hand again. This is the rule unless there is a punter who had bet on a tie and it happens, in which the game ends at that point. Where a tie results without a bet on the same, neither hand wins or loses; the game progresses. Where progress is required, the player either draws a third card or stands. If their sum was less than six, the player is dealt a third card. If it is above five, the player ‘stands,’ i.e. they pass the draw to the banker. The banker’s draw depends on the player hand. – The banker seeks to exceed the player’s sum with the third card if the player is standing. With a total of two or less, the banker draws a third card no matter what sum the player had. – If the banker’s sum is three, they draw another card except in instances where the player is reached an eight with the third card. – Where the banker’s cards sum to four, a third card is drawn if the player drew between two and seven in the third card. – When a banker has a sum of five, they draw again if the player drew between four and seven in the third draw. – With a total of six, the banker is dealt another card if the player drew a third card of six or seven. – Where the total is seven, the banker takes a stand.
Live Baccarat RulesNow that we are on the same page regarding the game of Baccarat, we can now wade to the rules of playing the game online. A pretty easy and fun game, as you may have noticed. You can enjoy it and quickly get to earning money even if there is no brick and mortar casino in your area. First up, a few additional rules that also apply in the online version of the game.
- The player hand pays 1 to 1, also known as even money. This means you win the same amount of money that you had staked.
- The banker hand pays in the same fashion.The house collects a 5% commission winnings of the dealer hand, which is the most probable winning hand.
- A tie pays 8 to 1, which makes it the most paying betting option. There is a catch, however.
- The house has an edge of 1.06 % in a banker’s hand, 1.24% when betting on the player and a whopping 14.36% for a tie bet. This is for an eight deck shoe; it rises with a smaller shoe.
CommunicationIn the online version of the game, for example, players normally do not have the luxury of consulting with each other when playing. Since they are playing against the house rather than against each other, much of the technological development to this end has been built to enable communication with the house. The player is able to see the croupier in real time as the cards are dealt as well as the casino ambiance. They may also talk to the house through a voice or text chat. However, they are not able to see or talk to other remotely located players.
Accounts and bettingAnother rule is about placing wagers. When playing Baccarat online, many casinos will have it as a rule that players create an account. The account is used to make deposits and place wagers as well as receive pay-outs when a player wins. There are two models in which players can play online:
- Instant play
