According to most historians, Baccarat was invented by Felix Falguiere in Italy during the 1400s. The name Baccarat comes from the Italian word "Baccara" which means Zero. This is because in Baccarat, all picture cards are worth zero points. 

The game was originally considered to be just for the high-rollers and wasn't available everywhere. However, as online casinos grew in popularity, so did Baccarat. Casino players realized that the game has a simple premise and is very easy to play.

This how online Baccarat grew into one of the most popular real money card games in India. Casino.com IN has several different Baccarat variants, including a Live Casino game, which means that you'll be playing with real cards, and watching the dealer through HD streaming cameras.

How to Play Live Baccarat

The great thing about Live Baccarat is that you don't need to know the rules to play the game. As long as you understand the betting options, you can play and  possibly win real money. This is because once you make your bet, all moves are dictated by the cards. Unlike Blackjack, where you play against the house, in Live Baccarat you're betting on which hand will win.

The three main bets:

  • Player's Hand
  • Banker's Hand
  • Tie

There are also several side bets, which can increase the action.

  • Player Pair
  • Banker Pair
  • Big
  • Small

You'll have to place your bets before the dealer closes off betting and begins to deal the cards.

Rules of Live Baccarat

To win Baccarat, you have to place a bet on the hand with the closest to 9 points. The exception to this is if you bet on the Tie, in which case, if both hands have equal point total, you'll win.

Baccarat has a unique way of counting points.

  • 10, J, Q, and K are worth 0 points
  • A is worth 1 point
  • 2 – 9 are worth their value
  • Add up the cards in the hand; if they go over 9, the count starts back at 0. For example, if one hand has a 7 and 4 – the point total is 1. A pair of Kings is worth 0 points, an 8, 9 is worth 7 points.

At the start of each round, both hands receive two face-up cards. Whether either hand receives a third card depends on the points in each hand.

The rules for the third card are as follows: 

  • If either hand has 8 or 9 points, no one gets a third card. This is called a Natural.
  • If the Banker has 7, 8, or 9 points, it won't get a 3rd
  • If the Player has 6, 7, 8, or 9 points, it won't get a 3rd
  • The player hand receives a 3rd card if it has 0 – 5 points, only if the Banker doesn't have an 8/9.  
  • When the player hand has 6 or 7 points, and the Banker hand has up to 5, it will receive a 3rd card.

Banker's hands are also dictated by the player hand.

  • Banker will get a 3rd card if it has 3 points or less unless the Player hand has 8/9
  • When the Banker has 4 points, it only receives a 3rd card if the Player has 0, 1, 8, or 9 points. 
  • When the Banker has 5 points, it only receives a 3rd card if the Player has 4, 5, 6, or 7 points.
  • When the Banker has 6 points, it only receives a 3rd card if the Player has 6 or 7 points. 
  • The dealer will always stand if it has 7, 8, or 9 points, regardless of what the Player has.  

Key Live Baccarat Strategies

With low house edges and close to 50% odds of winning when betting on the Player or Banker hands, there are several betting  strategies or systems that are often used in Live Baccarat,

  • The one-sided betting strategy: Pick one bet, either Player or Banker, and stick to it. Don't change your wager, and you'll be able to last for a while at the table without blowing through your chips. This is a low-risk/low reward strategy and is ideal if you want to play for a while but aren't looking for a big win.
  • Martingale: To employ this strategy, you will need to double your wager after each loss. The downside to this strategy is that if you go on an extended losing streak, the doubled stakes will quickly add up. However, all it takes is one win to recoup your losses.
  • Fibonacci: Add up your previous two wagers after any loss to use this system. For example, if you start with a £1 wager and lose, your next bet will also be £1 (0+1). Your next bet will be £2 (1+1), then £3 (2+1), £5 (3+2), £8(5+3), £13 (8+5), and so on.
  • Labouchere: To use this system, you will have to write down a sequence of numbers, and each number represents the chip sizes that you'll be betting. Then, add the first and last digit to come up with your bet. If you win, remove those numbers from your sequence and move on to the next two numbers. If you lose, the total bet is added to the end of the list. For example, take a sequence of 1,2,3,4,5,6. Your first bet is 1+6 for a £7 bet. If you win, the next bet will be 2+5 for another £7 bet. However, if you lose, your new sequence is 1 – 7. And your next bet will be £8. This continues until you finish off your sequence.
  • D'Alembert System: To use this strategy, you will have to increase your bet by one chip after each loss and decrease the bet by one chip after each win. It is very low-risk, but you shouldn't expect big wins.

Regardless of what Baccarat betting strategy you use, if any, it's always important to set a budget and stick to it.

Why Play Against a Live Dealer?

The Live Dealer is more than just a clever marketing gimmick. The game is played with an eight-deck shoe instead of the virtual cards used in the online casino version of the game. Since cards are shuffled once they reach the marker in the shoe, players can have a sense as to which cards have already been played and what cards remain.

Another benefit that you get when playing Live Dealer Baccarat is that you can see how much money is being wagered on each betting position. You can either go with the majority or try and be different. While you're waiting for the game to begin, feel free to chat with the dealers. You can talk about anything on your mind, creating the most authentic casino experience, without having to get dressed up and go to the actual casino.
