Live Baccarat Symbols
If you’ve never played baccarat before, the premise is simple. We take eight standard decks and deal four cards: two to the “player” hand and two to the “banker” hand. Your job is to bet on either hand or a tie. What are you betting on? Basically, you’re trying to predict which hand will get closest to a total of nine.
Based on certain conditions, each hand can receive additional cards after the initial deal. However, the final totals are always 10 or lower. To make this happen, you always take the second digit of any total above 10. For example, 7+7 = 14 = 4. If you can master these basics, you can play Live Baccarat.
Features and How to Play Live Baccarat
The beauty of playing Live Baccarat here at Paddy Power™ Games is the diversity of our games. Each one uses the fundamentals we’ve discussed already. However, every table has its own nuances. From Live 7 Seat Baccarat and Six Scanner Baccarat to Live No Commission and Dragon Jackpot, each one offers a slightly different experience.
The basic thing to take from this is that you can play for low stakes, lower fees or extra jackpots, depending on your experience and preferences. It’s this diversity of choice that makes Live Baccarat at Paddy Power™ Games great.
Live Baccarat RTP
The RTP of Live Baccarat depends on the variant you’re playing and the wager you make. In general, betting on the banker's hand is a better long-term proposition than speculating on the player or a tie. If you did this consistently, Live Baccarat has a theoretical return rate of 98.94%!
Playing Baccarat with a Live Dealer
The beauty of casino Baccarat Live is that it captures the excitement of physical gaming but allows you to experience it in a more convenient and accessible way. This means you don’t lose out on the interactivity of playing, which extends to having a real-world dealer overseeing the game.
A major upside to live play is that baccarat remains an eminently social game. You get to enjoy the same fun back-and-forth with your dealer as you would in a land-based casino, and they’ll bring an equal level of professionalism too. You won’t have a mere simulation of interacting with a real person; you can actually enjoy the social side of play!
Besides, you can take advantage of our fun live chat feature. This allows you to talk with other players, just as you would if you were sat around a physical table. This means you can speak to and 'meet' lots of new people without having to set foot outside your front door.
What’s more, you get to watch the action unfolding before your eyes. Everything you see on your screen is happening in real-time, and your interactions with the Baccarat Live real money dealer and other players will reflect this. That means the excitement and anticipation around the table are entirely authentic.
The Rules of the Live Casino Baccarat Game
So how does it all work? What are the rules that govern the game when you play Live Baccarat? Let’s talk you through it! To start with, it’s important to know how many chips – and therefore bets – you can place simultaneously. The answer is several, giving you the chance to increase your odds of winning.
To know how long you have left to place a bet, look at the timer in your game window. When this says ‘no more bets’, the round will start. You won’t be able to make another move until your current game ends and the next begins.
You can place your bet on several positions, including player, banker, and tie. There are also several side bet positions to choose from.
When the round starts, the dealer will hand out cards to those around the table. In most variations of the game, these will alternately be dealt to the player and then the banker. Six Scanner Baccarat works a little differently, however, with all six cards dealt to the table.
Once the cards have been assigned, the values are calculated. The winner is the individual whose sum is closest to nine. Winning bets are swiftly paid out, at the close of each round.
Simple right? If you like the sound of that, then play the best Live Baccarat online at PaddyPower.com!
