Live Baccarat online
is often known as the king of card games. Elegant, easy to learn and ultimately fun - it’s no wonder it has become such a hit at Mayfaircasino.com. Card games will often have some element of strategy or probability involved - but online Baccarat is all about lady luck.
The purpose of the game is simple; to correctly guess who will have the stronger hand. You can bet on your own hand, the banker’s hand or on a tie outcome. Betting on your own Baccarat hand will pay out 2 to 1 - the same goes for betting on the bankers hand, minus a 5% commission charge. Betting and winning on a tie bet pays out a sizeable 8 to 1.
So how do you determine the strongest winning hand? In Baccarat, the objective is to get as close to nine as possible, which is a similar concept to the game of Blackjack. Each card has a value, with 2-9 retaining their face values and the ace being valued at one. Kings, Queens, Jacks and tens however are valued at zero.
In a live casino Baccarat game, any hand over the value of ten will in turn have ten subtracted. Let’s say that you draw a 9 + 8; this will equal to 17. In which case, you will have a final hand of 7 once ten has been subtracted. A third card can also be drawn under special circumstances.
Like most classic casino games, this card game is best experienced with a live dealer - and Mayfair Casino London offers a luxurious selection of the most popular Baccarat games
