Not all games are made equal and unfortunately Baccarat got the short end of the stick which means it doesn’t get the same spotlight as Blackjack or Roulette does which is a huge shame in our eyes as it’s just as fun and offers something a little different. If you’ve clicked on this page hopefully it’s because you’re a little interested in what live Baccarat has to offer we’ll happily tell you, and give you a quick rundown of how the game works while we’re at it!
Playing live Baccarat online
In its simplest form, like Blackjack Baccarat is a game of points where the player with the highest points at the end of the game wins. The point system in this game is a little different though as the highest score possible in Baccarat is 9. Each card in the deck is worth the same points as in Blackjack (facecard 10, Ace 1/11, each number its value) but when you add up the total points of all your cards you only take the final digit of that number. An easy example of this is just if you were dealt a 7 and a King your total points would be 17 and so your final score will be 7. If you get a score of 10 that’s the same as a 0 which is why 9 is the highest point score in this game.
When it comes to the gameplay in live Baccarat both the dealer and player is dealt two face up cards and their total score is taken. If either party has 8 or 9 at this point the game ends with the highest score winning. If both parties have the same score then it ends in a draw. If there neither player reached this point total there is one final round to the game where the player then draws a card and depending on which card he drew and the dealer’s current score, the dealer may or may not draw a card. This isn’t something you need to worry about though as there’s always a chart at the table explaining when the dealer draws a card.
Because live Baccarat is a game which basically plays itself out players in this game can bet on either himself, the dealer, or a draw to occur in the game. This adds an extra dimension to this game as it’s no longer simply a case of you versus the dealer which make641s it way more fun in our opinion!
