When people say the word “casino,” a handful of games usually come to mind, like poker, roulette, and blackjack. However, in recent years, baccarat has become so popular that it has become nearly obligatory for any casino to offer it in its repertoire of games.

What Are the Rules of Baccarat?
Baccarat is a game that’s fantastic for players that are new to the casino since it doesn’t have a lot of complicated rules to remember or a large amount of bets available. However, that doesn’t mean that veteran players can’t enjoy it, and in fact, a lot of them regularly play at live baccarat tables.
Baccarat is a guessing game that’s played against the casino; the aim of the game is to guess which card combination will get a score that’s as close to 9 as possible. To do this, you’ll need to place a bet on either the banker or the player; it’s good to know that these are simply bets and not real people.
After the bets are placed, the dealer deals 2 facedown cards to the banker and player each. The cards are then turned over and their score is counted; if one of the combinations has a score of 9 or 8, known as a “natural,” then that combination instantly wins.
However, if the scores aren’t naturals, then a third card may be drawn to either the banker or the player, depending on what the scores are. The rules for drawing the third card are known as “third-card rules,” and they’re rather complicated. Thankfully, players don’t have to know them.
In fact, third-card rules are instantly carried out by the dealer, and it’s likely that hardly any baccarat player knows what they are. After the third cards are dealt, the resultant scores are counted, and whichever combination has a combined value as close to 9 as possible wins.
Players, therefore, win if their chosen bet gets a score higher than the other bet; for example, if they bet on the banker, and the banker has a score higher than the player, then they win their bet. However, if both the banker and player have an equal score, then banker and player bets are refunded.
There is also the possibility of betting on a tie to happen, in which case your bet will win when both the banker and the player get an identical score. Counting the score in baccarat works in the following way:
- The cards from ace through 9 have a value according to their face value; for example 2 has a value of 2;
- The face cards (Jacks, Queen, and Kings) and 10s all have a value of 0.
The maximum possible score on baccarat is 9 and any score above that “resets,” that is, it starts over from 0. That means that only one-digit numbers count as scores on baccarat. Because of this, it’s actually possible to get a total score of 0, also known as baccarat.
How to Bet on Live Baccarat in Ireland?
Betting on live baccarat is an easy matter as it works the same as it does on the software version, which you’ll be able to try out without needing to wager. You’ll be provided with a range of chips with which you can adjust your bets and a number of available bets.
To place the bet, simply place a number of chips on your desired bet. You can adjust your bet as much as you like before the dealer deals the cards. However, when the dealer starts dealing, bets are closed and you won’t be able to touch your bet until after the dealer deals the cards.
What Are the Possible Bets?
Some table games have a dizzying amount of bets that you can make, which can be intimidating for the casino novice. For example, if you were play to live roulette, the amount of bets available can make the game rather confusing. However, this isn’t the case with baccarat as there’s only a handful of basic bets:
- Banker (Banco)
- Player (Punto)
- Banker Pair
- Player Pair
As we said before, “banker” and “player” are not real people, but only bets that you can make in baccarat. As such, they’re the fundamental bets of baccarat. The banker and player bets pay out even money, that is, 1:1.This means that for every £1 you bet, you’ll win £1 on top of it.
However, since the banker has better odds, there’s a 5% commission on all banker wins. The other basic bet that’s possible on baccarat is the tie bet, which plays 8:1, or £8 for every £1 you wager. Finally, there are the pair bets, and they win when either the player or the banker (depending on your bet) receive a pair.
So, if you bet on a banker pair, and the banker receives two 4s, for example, you’ll win your bet. The pair bets pay 11:1, or £11 for every £1 you bet. On the other hand, there are some special bets which players can choose to make if they wish; they provide an extra layer of entertainment.
These bets are called “bonus” or “side bets” and not all of them are available at every table. One example of a bonus bet is the Super 6 bet that’s available on our No Commission Baccarat table. This bet wins when the banker bet wins on a 6, and has a payout of 15:1, or £15 for every £1 you bet.
What Are the Different Types of Live Baccarat?
Baccarat is good fun and all, especially when it’s played with live dealers, but playing the same game over and over without any variation can get a little boring. So, to prevent this altogether, we decided to outsource a number of live baccarat variants provided by industry giants like Evolution Gaming:
- Speed Baccarat
- Baccarat Squeeze
- Salon Privé
- Lightning Baccarat
- No Commission Baccarat
Speed Baccarat is a game for those players that enjoy some rather fast-paced games. In fact, the rounds in Speed Baccarat only last 27 seconds, which, compared to the regular 48 seconds, is pretty fast. Baccarat Squeeze focuses on the suspenseful moment of the reveal.
The bet that has the highest number of bets behind it has its last card slowly revealed, making for a tense reveal. Salon Privé is a table designed specifically for those players that enjoy betting large amounts of dosh. Lightning Baccarat is an electric twist to the game of baccarat.
In Lightning Baccarat, a multiplier, ranging from x2-x8, is randomly applied to one of the cards, which can potentially amplify your winnings. Finally, No Commission Baccarat removes the commission from the banker bet; however, if the banker wins on a 6, the payout is 0.5:1, or half your bet, instead.

Baccarat is a game against the house, and it only involves placing bets. It’s fundamentally a guessing game where you have to guess whether the player or the banker will get a combined score of 9 or as close to 9 as possible; after bets are made, the dealer deals 4 facedown cards.
2 of the cards are for the player and 2 are for the banker. Depending on the scores, a third card might be dealt. Afterwards, the scores of the cards are counted and whichever combination is closest to 9 wins. Players win depending on who they bet on before the cards are dealt.
For sure, but to tell you the truth, all of our live baccarat tables and our live casino games can only be played with real money. So, if you’re in the mood for some live casino, be sure to first create an account on Betiton and then deposit some money into your bankroll to be able to play.
