Welcome to one of the finest live dealer gaming experiences in the world.
You can change your BACCARAT table or select any other live games at any time by pressing the LIVE GAMES MENU button. You will not be removed from your table until you have actually selected the new table you wish to join, so the LIVE LOBBY can be used to browse other games whilst still playing at the current table.
RULES of BACCARAT are outlines in the How To Play section.
The game screen consists of a black toolbar at the bottom of the screen and the gaming window (showing the live video) above.
In the gaming window there are a number of key elements: see Screen elements section.
How To Play
The Object of the Game
Two hands are dealt in Baccarat - The Banker's hand and the Player's hand. Prior to each deal, the player wagers on whether the Player's hand or the Banker's hand will be closest to a total of 9. The player also has the option to wager on a tie (i.e. both the banker's and player's hands total the same). 8 decks of 52 cards are used.
Select the amount you would like to wager on a given hand by clicking the left mouse button on a chip and left clicking on the "Player", "Banker" or "Tie" sections of the gaming table. Each click on the betspot position will add another chip to the bet.
REPEAT: If you bet in the previous game round, you can click the REPEAT button to automatically place the same bets in this round. (Providing you have a sufficient cash balance)
DOUBLE: If the REPEAT button has been selected, the player is given the option to automatically double the stake placed.
UNDO: Selecting the UNDO button will remove your bet chips one by one from the game table in the reverse order of their placement. Click UNDO once to remove the last chip placed, or several times to keep removing the bets that have been placed.
If you place a wager that is lower than the minimum table bet limit, you will receive a pop up message when the betting period is over and your bet will be rejected.
If you place a bet that is higher than the maximum table limit, a tooltip will appear reminding you of the maximum bet limit and you will not be able to place that bet.
After the betting time period has expired, the Player and Banker are dealt two cards.
Example: Hand + Hand = Total
9+7 = 16 = 6
5+5+5 = 15 = 5
10+9 = 19 = "Natural" 9
After the first two cards are dealt to both the Player and Banker, the "Third Card Rule" (See Below) will determine if a 3rd card is to be dealt. No hand receives more than three cards.
When the Player and Banker hands equal the same total, the hand is declared a Tie and all bets (other than Tie bets) for that game are voided. If the value of the cards in either the Player's Hand or the Banker's Hand is an 8 or a 9 (a "natural") after receiving their initial two cards, then no more cards shall be dealt to either hand.
If the value of the cards in either hand on the first two cards is 0 to 7 inclusive, the hands shall draw in accordance with the "Third Card Rules".
Third Card Rules:
For the Player's Hand to Draw
If the Player's two cards total:
0-5 Player's hand must draw
6-7 Player's hand must stand
8-9 "Natural" (Both hands stand)
For the Banker's Hand to Draw
If the Banker's two cards total:
0-2 Banker's hand must draw
3-6 Third card to Player's hand determines draw or stand
7 Banker's hand must stand
8-9 "Natural" (Both hands stand)
When the Banker's third card decision depends on the third card drawn by the Player, the following rules apply:
If the Player's hand stands on two cards (6, 7), then a two card Banker hand totalling 3, 4, 5 must draw and a Banker hand totaling 6 must stand.
Payoffs Wager and Result Payoff
If you are playing on Super6 table then Banker's payoff wager and result payoff will be:
If you have selected to play at a "pairs" table, you have two additional betting options. You can bet on either the player's or Banker's 1st 2 cards being a pair. The payoff for either bet is 11 to 1.

The SCORE TABLE board shows your scores. (Only available in the 3D view)
Big Road, Big Eye Road, Small Road, and Cockroach Road are straight score cards. In general, straight score cards allow you to see baccarat streaks and baccarat trends for either the player or the banker. Wins of the same side and ties are shown in one column. Whenever the other side wins, a new column is started. Ties do not break a column because non-tie bets are returned to the player. So, if a tie occurs, you do not lose any money.
Each score card marks the game results using a different pattern. More specifically, the difference lies in the starting point and the results marked. Each player can choose his favourite score card. A new score card is started along with every shoe change. Signs on the score cards carry the following meanings:
Red circle - the banker won that round.
Blue circle - the player won that round.
Green slash - the round ended in a tie.
The BET LIMITS sign shows you the table name and the minimum and maximum stakes permitted. Clicking on the sign will show a breakdown of these limits if applicable.
The Game Information Indicator will inform you of the game status, when you bet, how much you have won, etc. You will find this indicator in all live games.
If you have a seat at the table then your name will be displayed beneath that seat. By Clicking on a chip from the CHIP INDICATOR and then clicking on the seat position during the GREEN or YELLOW betting time (SEE GAME INFORMATION INDICATOR ABOVE) then that bet is made. Each time you click on that spot the bet will be increased by that amount. When you are satisfied that you have reached the stake you wish to bet, you need not do anything else, the bet will automatically be sent when the RED betting indicator is lit (i.e. bets are closed). During the GREEN or YELLOW betting time, your bets can be removed by repeatedly clicking the UNDO button. Once bets are closed (RED LIGHT) they cannot be cancelled.
At the bottom of the screen there is the black control toolbar.
