Why Live Dealer Baccarat?

Learning to play Baccarat is easy, and if you've never played before, then you're in for a treat! The regular non-live Baccarat pits you against a computer and uses a Random Number Generator (RNG) to determine the result.

But, if you're looking to recreate the authentic casino atmosphere, then you must play at our Live Baccarat tables.

You'll be seated against a real dealer who will entertain and talk with you as you place bets on the dealer's hand, your hand or a tie Baccarat. You don't need a webcam or microphone – take your seat and enjoy the best Baccarat online filled with suspense and intrigue!


The basic premise behind Baccarat is to beat the banker by correctly guessing which hand will be closest to 9 points. There are three possible outcomes you can bet on:

  • Banker wins.
  • Your hand wins.
  • A Tie.

You must place your bet before the cards are dealt during the betting round. Your table's dealer will let you know when the betting round is open, and there will be on-screen prompts as well. When the betting round has finished, two cards will be dealt to the player box and two cards to the banker's box. 

Card Values

You can calculate points by adding the card values together. Tens and Royal cards are worth zero points. All other cards are worth their face value, for example, a 4 card is worth 4 points, an 8 card is worth 8 points. But if the points exceed 10, then only the second digit of the hand is counted. Here are some examples:

  • 2 + 5 = 7 points in total. The hand value is 7.
  • 4 + 8 = 12 points in total. The hand value is 2.

To win, you must correctly bet on which hand will be closest to 9, the player's hand or the banker's hand.

3rd Card Rules

There are house rules that will determine when a third card will be drawn, and there's a max limit of three cards per hand.

The player hand must draw a card if the first two cards total 0 – 5, and will stand on points totalling 6 to 9.

A 'natural win' can occur if the first two cards dealt are equal to 8 or 9. If this happens the game is over, and you'll be awarded your winning bets, no third card will be drawn.

The third card rule for the banker is different because it depends if the player stood or took a card, but you don't need to memorise it because the dealer will deal with all the necessary cards.

  • Banker will draw a card if the first two cards total 0, 1 or 2.
  • Banker will stand if a 'natural win' is dealt.
  • Banker will stand if the initial hand value is 7 points.
  • Banker will stand if the hand value is 6 points and the player did not draw a hand.
  • If the banker's initial hand total is 3, 4, 5 or 6 points AND the player drew a third card, then the banker will act according to the below table:
Bank Hand Initial Total Banker draws a card when player's third card is Banker stands when player's third card is
3 0-7 and 9 8
4 2 to 7 0, 1 and 8, 9
5 4 to 7 0 to 3 and 8, 0
6 6 and 7 0 to 5 and 8, 9

Live Mini Baccarat Rules

Live Mini Baccarat is a faster and smaller version of Baccarat but still retains much of the base gameplay. The table is similar in size to a blackjack table and has fewer seats available. Often 6 decks of cards are used as opposed to 8.

Each of our Live Baccarat games comes complete with an in-depth help menu filled with information. You’ll find info on how to play, betting options, payouts and more. You can also ask your Live Dealer who will be happy to explain the game mechanics and chat freely while you play.

Odds and Payouts

Did you know Baccarat has one of the lowest house edge’s out of all casino games? That means you have some of the best odds when playing at a Live Baccarat table. It’s just one of the reasons Baccarat is such a popular game at Ireland.

You’ll notice in the table below that a winning banker’s hand pays slightly less – a small commission is taken because the house edge is lower.

  House Edge RTP Pays
Player Hand 1.23% 98.77% 01:01
Banker Hand 1.05% 98.95% 0.95:1
TIE 14% 86.00% 8 to 1

You can see all the game specific payouts in the game’s help section. Just click the options menu and then help.

Top 3 Strategies

Here are some useful tips which you should read before playing:

  1. Stake your bet on the banker more than the player hand. This is because the banker has a slightly better house edge, even though you must pay a small commission on those bets.
  2. You should rarely bet on a Tie. The payouts are much higher than betting on either the player hand or banker’s hand, but the chances to win a Tie bet are minimal. Only place this bet if you're feeling extra lucky.
  3. Manage your money. Baccarat is a relatively simple game to play, and mini Baccarat is played even faster. Be sure to properly manage your money by only playing with what you can afford to, and if necessary, use our responsible gaming tools, such as time limits, deposit limits and loss limits.

We recommend a stable Wifi, 4G or 5G connection to ensure the best playing experience. You can tilt your phone horizontally or vertically but tilt it sideways if you want the table to fill the screen.
