There are different versions of baccarat available at our online casino; one of the versions you get is Progressive Baccarat. The game is much like the regular online baccarat game except for a small twist: there is a progressive jackpot attached to it. The progressive jackpot attached to the game takes it to an entirely different level; you get a shot at hitting that one big jackpot that gives you more wins than any of the other hands.
The game – played with 6 decks of regular cards – is between you and the banker. Both are dealt 2 cards each; a third card may also be dealt depending on the initial hand. The one with a hand value of 9 or close to it wins. Number cards are valued at face, the Ace is valued at 1, and the face cards are valued at 0. The overall hand value has to be 9 or lower; so if your hand value is over 10, the value of the second digit becomes the overall hand value. Bets can be placed on the player as well as the banker; wins from a bet on the banker require a 5% commission to be paid.
Progressive Baccarat at Casino.com, like all of our online casino games, have high quality graphics and animations. The dealer’s shoe is at the top right while the slot for used cards is at the top left. The chip tray is between these two. The Color option at the top left allows you to change the color of the table. At the top of the table is the jackpot ticker with information about how much you can win should you hit the jackpot at that moment. Chips are placed on the table’s edge to make it easy for you to pick them when it comes to placing bets.
