Live Baccarat rules and statistics
The aim of live baccarat is to predict which hand (Player, Banker or Tie) will score bigger in the next round and place a bet within a predefined betting time which is 25 seconds for this game. The scoring, drawing rules, card values and the Third Card rule are totally identical to these applied in any 8-deck punto banco. Payouts are also the same, with 1:1 for Player, 0.95:1 for Banker and 8:1 for Tie. The scoreboards displayed under the video feed box are used to help players keep track on recent game results and make more accurate predictions on the next rounds.
While regular betting can lead to only three winning possibilities (Player, Banker or Tie), side bets are the key to bigger and more diverse wins with up to 30 times a bet. The time allotted for betting is sufficient for you to place one or more of the following side bets on respective betting spots to the right of the video feed screen:
- Player/Banker/Either Pair. A side bet wins if the first two cards in the Player or Banker hand (depending on which outcome you have wagered) or in either hand comprises a pair (pays out 11 to 1 and 5 to 1 respectively)
- Either/Perfect Pair. The side bet pays out 25 to 1 if the two initial cards in the Player or Banker hand comprise a pair of identical cards
- Player/Banker Dragon. The side bet wins if there is at least a 4-point difference between the Player and Banker hands.
