The Objective of Live Dealer Baccarat

In Live Dealer Baccarat, the objective is to predict whose hand will have a value closest to 9.

Baccarat Game Rules

Live Dealer Baccarat is played with eight standard 52-card decks and is hosted by a professional dealer. The card values are as follows:

– Aces are worth 1 point each.
– Cards from 2 to 9 are worth their numerical face values.
– 10s and face cards (jacks, queens, and kings) are worth 0.

In the main Baccarat game, only the numeric value of each card matters, while the suit is irrelevant.

Prior to each deal, you must place your bet on whether the Player or the Banker will have a hand with a value closest to 9. You can also bet on a Tie if you believe both hands will have equal value. Additionally, you can place a Player/Banker Pair (P/B Pair) bet, which pays if the first two cards dealt to the Player/Banker constitute a pair.

The dealer starts by dealing two cards to both the player and the Banker. If the hands have equal value, it results in a tie, where the Tie bet wins, and bets on the Player and Banker are returned. The value of each hand is calculated by dropping the tens digit if it exceeds 9. For example, a hand of 7 and 9 has a value of 6 (16-10=6). A face card and a 9 have a value of 9.

If the Player or Banker receives an initial two-card hand worth 8 or 9 (a natural 8 or 9), no additional cards are dealt. However, if the Player and Banker have initial hands worth 0-7, the “Third Card Rule” determines if a third card is dealt to either or both hands. The Player always goes first.

Player’s Hand

Player’s initial hand:

– 0-5: Player draws a third card.
– 6-7: Player stands.
– 8-9 (a “natural”): No third card is dealt.

Banker’s hand chart

If the Player stands on 6 or 7, a Banker hand totaling 3, 4, or 5 must draw, while a Banker hand totaling 6 must stand. The hand closest to a total of 9 wins the game.
