Live Baccarat

Last Updated: 13-07-2022 10:31

No self-respecting casino that wishes to make a name for itself would be so careless as to not provide its players with all of the online casino essentials, like poker, slots, blackjack, and roulette. In recent years, the popularity of baccarat has soared so much, that it quickly became a must-have in casinos everywhere.

Playing Live Baccarat at Betiton Casino in Canada?

Since we are a self-respecting casino that wants to leave its mark on the world of online gaming, we had to provide baccarat within our vast collection of casino games. In fact, our players in Canada can find baccarat both as a software table and as a live casino game.

The software version is ideal for new players as they can try it out without having to wager. Live casino, on the other hand, provides an immersive experience which every Canadian player should try out. The rest of this page deals with the rules of baccarat and what we offer on Betiton, so new players would do well to read it.

How to Play Live Baccarat with Betiton Canada?

Since our live baccarat tables aren’t available as demo versions, you’ll first need to create an account on Betiton. Afterwards, you will need to make a deposit using one of our payment methods. Once the deposit is completed, look through what we offer in terms of live baccarat and pick a table. Then you’ll just need to enjoy the game!

For a summary of the above, please consult the following step-by-step list:

  1. Create a Betiton Account
  2. Make a Deposit
  3. Have a Look Through our Live Baccarat Selection
  4. Choose a Table
  5. Best of Luck!

What Are the Rules of Baccarat?

Baccarat is a casino game that’s played against the casino, like most other casino games. The object of the game is to place a bet on either of 2 bets, these being the “banker” and the “player.” The bets win when either of these (depending on the bet) gets a card combination with a value as close to 9 as possible.

That’s the basic gist of the game, meaning that it’s an ideal game for beginners in the casino world. However, there’s a little more to this game than that, which we’ll be going over in the rest of this section. If you’d like to learn more about the game of baccarat, we suggest that you read it all.

Once players make their bets, the dealer will deal 4 facedown cards, 2 to the banker and 2 to the player. Afterwards, the dealer will turn over these cards and count their values. The card combination that gets a total value of 9 or 8 is known as a “natural” and it wins outright.

However, if the cards don’t show either 8 or 9, the dealer may deal a third card depending on a complex set of rules known as “third-card rules.” Players don’t need to know these rules, and it’s most likely that only a handful of baccarat players know how they work.

That’s because third-card rules are automatically carried out by the dealer. After the third cards are dealt, the process is exactly the same, with the score of all 3 cards being counted and the card combination that has a total value that’s closest to 9 wins.

There’s also the possibility that the banker and player get identical scores, in which the case the game is declared a tie, and the banker and player bets are refunded. However, there’s also the possibility of betting on a tie, in which case the bets win if the banker and player get equal scores.

To understand how the score is counted in baccarat, you’ll need to know what values the cards have:

  • The cards from 2-9 have a value according to their number; so, 7 has a value of 7.
  • Aces have a value of 1.
  • Finally, 10s and the face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) have a value of 0.

It’s good to keep in mind that the maximum score in baccarat is 9; however, unlike when you’re playing live blackjack, where scores over 21 lose instantly, you can’t “go bust” in baccarat. Instead, the score “resets,” that is, it starts over from 0. Because of this, a total score of 0—known as “baccarat“—is actually possible.

A Guide to Betting on Live Baccarat for Canadians

If you’ve played baccarat before, whether the software version or at a physical table, you’ll easily figure out how betting works on live baccarat. However, if you’re new to baccarat, you might have a tough time understanding how it works. For practice, you should try the demo version of our software baccarat table.

When playing, you’ll be provided with a range of chips to make your bet with and a choice of bets. Simply place the desired number of chips on your bet of choice, and voilà! Finally, it’s good to know that you can adjust your bet before and after the dealer deals, but not as they’re dealing.

What Are the Possible Bets?

If you’re new to the game of baccarat, you will be glad to know that there aren’t all that many basic bets to make on baccarat, which saves you the headache of having to learn a tonne of information. The basic bets that can be played on baccarat are the following:

  • Banker (Banco)
  • Player (Punto)
  • Tie
  • Banker Pair
  • Player Pair

Firstly, it’s good for our Canadian players to know that “banker” and “player” don’t refer to people, not even the house or the players; they’re only names for the bets in baccarat. These bets have a payout of 1:1, or even money, meaning that you’ll win $1 for every $1 you wager.

However, since banker bets have slightly better odds, a 5% commission is placed on it to even out the advantage. So, if you win $20 on a banker bet, $1 goes as commission to the house. Moreover, the tie bets pay 8:1, or $8 for every $1 you wager.

Another basic bet that we haven’t mentioned so far is the pair bet; this bet wins when either the player or the banker (depending on what you bet) gets a pair, like a pair of Jacks. This bet pays 11:1, or $11 for every $1 you wager. There are also other bets available to bet on.

These bets are known as “bonus” or “side bets.” There are several of these bets, each with their own conditions, like the perfect pair bet, which wins when both the banker and player get a pair; another bonus bet is the Super 6 bet on No Commission Baccarat that pays 15:1 when the banker wins on a 6!

What Are the Different Types of Live Baccarat?

Whilst baccarat is a rather enjoyable game on its own, especially when it’s played with live dealers, playing the same thing over and over again can prove to be somewhat boring. However, thanks to industry giants like Evolution Gaming, we can provide our players in Canada with a number of baccarat variants:

  • Lightning Baccarat
  • Baccarat Squeeze
  • Salon Privé
  • No Commission Baccarat
  • Speed Baccarat

In Lightning Baccarat a multiplier—which can be anywhere from x2-x8—is randomly attached to one of the cards, which means that your win can possibly be multiplied. Baccarat Squeeze focuses on the intense and exciting moment of the reveal.

The bet that has the most bets backing it is slowly revealed, making for a suspenseful experience. Salon Privé is a live baccarat table that’s designed specifically for players that enjoy betting big. No Commission Baccarat removes the commission from the banker bet.

However, when the banker wins on a 6, the payout is 0.5:1, or half your bet, instead. Finally, Speed Baccarat is designed to provide players with an adrenaline-inducing experience; that’s because the rounds on Speed Baccarat last only 27 seconds, as opposed to the normal 48 seconds.

Moreover, players can also enjoy a decent amount of other top-quality live casino tables at our live casino section. However, players from Canada should also be aware that playing on our live casino requires them to deposit money as none of our live casino tables are available as demo versions. To do this, players will need to create an account and then deposit to their bankroll.

How is baccarat played?

Baccarat is a game that’s played against the casino and involves guessing which of 2 card combinations will have a score that’s closer to 9 than the other. To do this, players bet on either the player or the banker; afterwards, the dealer will deal 4 facedown cards, 2 to the player and banker each. The cards are then flipped over and their scores are counted. The combination that has a score closer to 9 wins. Players win according to which bets they made. If a tie occurs, then both the player and banker bets are refunded; however, tie bets are also possible, which win when the player and banker get identical scores.

Am I able to play live baccarat for real money?
