Live Online Baccarat
If you’re new to the live online casino world then there’s a good chance you’ve yet to experience the joys of live Baccarat as it’s not a game that’s played in every casino up and down the country. In fact, it was in the James Bond movie “Goldeneye” that we first discovered it and if it wasn’t for that we maybe never would have had an urge to try it out in the first place! Fortunately we did though as live Baccarat has quickly become one of our favourite casino games to play and anytime we log in to a live casino it’s one of the first games we stop by.
Playing live Baccarat online
If you’ve never played Baccarat and therefore live Baccarat before then you’ll be happy to know the game is as easy to pick up as it is fun to play. If you wanted you would even be able to play the game without knowing the rules as much like Roulette, when the dealer spins the ball the game pretty much plays itself out and there’s nothing else left for you to do.
At its core the game of live Baccarat is just a points scoring game where the winner of the game is the person who gets the most points. If you know this then it will be easy to see who the winner of each game is however you will want to know how the counting in this game is done first as it’s not the same as similar games such as Blackjack.
The value of cards in live Baccarat are just the same as live Blackjack where the ace is worth either 1 or 11, a face card is worth 10, and the numbers their own value. The only difference is how the final score is taken for each party. In this game you want to add up all the numbers you have together to get a total number, and then you want to take the last digit of that number to be your final score – simple! So if all your cards add up to 23 then you’ve got a final score of 3, and if all your cards add up to 9 then you’ve got a final score of 9!
9 is in fact the highest score in this game and so that’s what you want your team to get every time the cards are dealt. We say your team and not you because in the game of live Baccarat you get to choose who you think will win the game. If you think you’re going to win then you bet on yourself, if you think the dealer will win then you bet on them, and if you think the game will result in a draw then you bet on that to be the game’s outcome!
It’s the fact there’s 3 different outcomes to bet on each and every round which makes live Baccarat such an interesting game to play and for us it’s only made all the more fun by the fact that once you’ve made your selection in the game all you need to do is sit back, relax, and watch the dealer deal out the cards to see who comes out on top!
