The Objective of Baccarat


Two hands are dealt in Baccarat - The Banker's hand and the Player's hand. Prior to each deal, the player wagers on whether the Player's hand or the Banker's hand will be closest to a total of 9. The player also has the option to wager on a tie (i.e. both the banker's and player's hands total the same). 8 decks of 52 cards are used.

How to place bets in Baccarat


Betting in live baccarat online is quite easy, just select the amount you would like to wager on a given hand by clicking the left mouse button on a chip and left clicking on the "Player", "Banker" or "Tie" sections of the gaming table. Each click on the betspot position will add another chip to the bet.
REPEAT: If you bet in the previous game round, you can click the REPEAT button to automatically place the same bets in this round. (providing you have a sufficient cash balance)
DOUBLE: If the REPEAT button has been selected, the player is given the option to automatically double the stake placed.
UNDO: Selecting the UNDO button will remove your bet chips one by one from the game table in the reverse order of their placement. Click UNDO once to remove the last chip placed, or several times to keep removing the bets that have been placed.
If you place a bet that is lower than the minimum table bet limit, you will receive a pop up message when the betting period is over and your bet will be rejected.
If you place a bet that is higher than the maximum table limit, a tooltip will appear reminding you of the maximum bet limit and you will not be able to place that bet.


How to place bets in Baccarat


  • A winning Player hand pays evens (1/1)
  • A winning Banker hand pays .95 to 1
  • A winning Tie pays 8 to 1

If you have selected to play at a baccarat "pairs" table, you have two additional betting options. You can bet on either the player's or Banker's 1st 2 cards being a pair. The payoff for either bet is 11 to 1.

Playing Live Baccarat Online


After the betting time period has expired, the Player and Banker are dealt two cards.
Example: Hand + Hand = Total
9+7 = 16 = 6
5+5+5 = 15 = 5
10+9 = 19 = "Natural" 9
After the first two cards are dealt to both the Player and Banker, the "Third Card Rule" (See Below) will determine if a 3rd card is to be dealt. In baccarat, no hand receives more than three cards.
When the Player and Banker hands equal the same total, the hand is declared a Tie and all bets (other than Tie bets) for that game are voided. If the value of the cards in either the Player's Hand or the Banker's Hand is an 8 or a 9 (a "natural") after receiving their initial two cards, then no more cards shall be dealt to either hand.
If the value of the cards in either hand on the first two cards is 0 to 7 inclusive, the hands shall draw in accordance with the "Third Card Rules".
Baccarat Third Card Rules:
For the Player's Hand to Draw
If the Player's two cards total:
0-5 Player's hand must draw
6-7 Player's hand must stand
8-9 "Natural" (Both hands stand)
For the Banker's Hand to Draw
If the Banker's two cards total:
0-2 Banker's hand must draw
3-6 Third card to Player's hand determines draw or stand
7 Banker's hand must stand
8-9 "Natural" (Both hands stand)
When the Banker's third card decision depends on the third card drawn by the Player, the following rules apply:


Bankers Hand Bankers hand draws when player's third card is : Bankers hand does not draw when player's third card is :
3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 9 0 8
4 2 3 4 5 6 7 0 1 8 9
5 4 5 6 7 0 1 2 3 8 9
6 6 7 0 1 2 3 4 5 8 9
7 Banker's hand must stand Banker's hand must stand
8-9 “Natural” Bank stands “Natural” Bank stands

If the Player's hand stands on two cards (6,7), then a two card Banker hand totaling 3,4,5 must draw and a Banker hand totaling 6 must stand.
