How to play live casino baccarat

“Baccarat” originally meant “zero”, but the baccarat online New Zealand players enjoy at All Slots translates as “maximum enjoyment”! The game itself is simple enough: eight cards are dealt by a banker from the shoe (a container holding the cards). The player then bets on one of three potential outcomes.  Either the banker or player holds a hand closest to the value of nine, or else the result is a tie. Two cards each are then dealt to player and banker – if the player or the banker’s hand has a value of less than five, a third card is dealt to them. The hands are revealed to determine the outcome of the bet. The numbering system of baccarat contributes to the value of a hand. All face cards and 10s equal zero, the last digit of the total is the final score. To illustrate, with a hand containing a King, 5 and 7, the total is 12 – the final score is 2. A baccarat hand is one that adds up to 10 – a 3 and a 7, for example. A 10 translates to a score of zero.

Live casino baccarat is a compelling representation of the game. When played at All Slots, the casino experience comes to life. Opulent luxury and serene ambiance are the order of the day at the traditional bean-shaped baccarat table, where a friendly, accommodating live dealer takes the player through the game.

Full HD video quality brings the table action to life. From the dealer interaction to the cards displayed on the table, all views are maximised using multiple camera angles. This immersive online casino realisation of baccarat provides a sense of true-to-life experience. Starting out? The dealer provides the peace of mind to help players relax and learn the game, while experienced players will note the professional presentation of the game in this slick format, along with real card play. The player-friendly interface offers told not available in a standard casino environment, including road maps that provide at-a-glance trends.

Road maps to live casino baccarat

Road maps in baccarat are scoreboards revealing the results in more than 60 previously-dealt hands. This provides stats that the player can use to gauge the odds and make a betting decision. In live casino baccarat online, the player has all these maps at their disposal.

Red for banker wins, blue for player wins and green for ties – that’s the easiest way of describing the bead plate, a grid with different-coloured beads.

By focusing on consecutive wins as revealed by the Big Road scoreboard, players may be able to discern trends for player hands and banker hand bets. A “dragon tail”, for example, is a bet that wins more than six times in a row. When used with the Big Road, the Big Eye Boy roadmap is designed to provide insights into results – whether they’re changing with each hand or repeating.

Variations on these are the Small Road and Cockroach Pig roadmaps.

The different types of live baccarat

There are a number of variations on classic live baccarat available. A quick game version is Live Speed Baccarat at 27 seconds per round. Cards are dealt face up for faster play. Live Baccarat Squeeze applies a feeling of suspense. Cards are dealt face down, the hand on which the lowest bet has been placed is revealed and the highest bet hand then undergoes the Squeeze, a baccarat ritual in which the short edge, then the long edge of each card is shown, slowly revealing the full hand.

The Live Baccarat Control Squeeze allows the player to control the squeeze. Evolution Gaming has found an ingenious way of making this happen in an online environment, with the dealer placing the cards face down on a special glass equipped with cameras. The image of the cards appears on screen, and the player then uses a finger or mouse to slowly pull back the edges of the cards, to finally reveal the hand value!

How to bet at live baccarat

Player hand, banker hand and tie represent the standard bets. A player hand bet receives an even-money payout, a banker hand win pays out even money minus a house commission and a tie pays out 8 – 1, provided that a tie bet was placed by the player.

There are a number of side bets that can be placed to add to the experience. Bet on a player or banker getting a pair – a win pays out 11:1. A perfect pair is two identical cards dealt to plyer or banker – a win with this pays out at 25:1. If both plyer and banker get the same, this increases to a 200:1 payout. A Player Bonus or Banker Bonus occurs when the hand you chose is a natural 8 or 9 and it wins by at least 4 points. The payout for this can be anything from 1:1 to 30:1 depending on the hand difference.
