What is online baccarat?

Online baccarat plays at a live casino. The game follows the same rules as baccarat you find in a land-based casino. Take a seat, and make a bet on either the Banker position, the Player position, or the Tie.

The aim of the game is to bet on the position you think will get a score of 9 or closest to 9. After bets are placed, the banker and player position are dealt two cards (in some cases, a third card too). Whichever position is closest to 9 wins.

The scoring is simple. A standard deck of playing cards is used. Face cards have a value of zero, aces 1, and all other cards their face value. No score can be over 10. If a score is over 10, for example, 7 + 5, the first number is dropped. So 12 becomes 2, and 14 would become 4.

The player position is dealt a third card if the total is 1-2-3-4-5-10. The banker position is dealt a third card following a more complicated set of combinations known as the banker third card rules.

These are long and tricky to remember, but you don’t really need to know them. Gameplay is automatic in online baccarat – the computer can’t make a mistake – and live baccarat is dealt by professional croupiers who know the rules without even thinking.

Of course, you can see a detailed list of the baccarat rules inside any game by hitting the info button. 

Every online baccarat game uses a random number generator (RNG) to ensure random games. Realistic animations and sounds create a lifelike and enjoyable experience.

Live roulette is real-time action streamed from a casino or casino studio where real dealers deal the cards. 

How to win at online baccarat

Baccarat is a game of chance. There are no actions that will improve your chances of winning as gameplay is automatic, and there are no choices you can make.

Like all casino games, there is a house edge that gives the casino an in-built advantage. The good news is, baccarat has a very low house edge on the banker and player bets (just 1.06% and 1.24%, respectively).

Your chances of winning baccarat on these bets is just shy of 50% - much better than most other casino games. 

It’s best to stick to these two bets as the house edge on the tie is over 14%, which doesn’t justify the odds of 8/1 (sometimes 9/1) you can get for the tie.

Some online baccarat tables have side bets like Perfect Pairs, where you can place an additional bet on a pair being dealt. These pay well too, but the house edge is also much higher on these bets. 

Remember to treat each new game as a totally different round. What has happened in the past cannot influence what will happen next. If the banker position has won five times in a row, you may think the player position is ‘due’ a win. But that’s incorrect – every round is independent to the last. 

Best online baccarat strategies

Here are three popular baccarat strategies. While you may read about how these make you invincible at the table, all are flawed. The best baccarat strategy is to play responsibly and play for fun – not as a way to try and make money.

Martingale baccarat system – Popular with roulette too, this system tells you to double your stake on every losing bet until you win. Sticking to even money payouts dictates you will eventually win at least one unit.

Unfortunately, even smallish losing runs will see you risk ever bigger wagers for that one unit of profit. Eventually, you will hit a losing run that wipes out your bankroll, or you will hit the table limits. 

Paroli baccarat system – The opposite of the Martingale system. Here you double stakes on even money bets after every win. Winning runs are therefore very profitable, but you will run into similar problems as with the Martingale. You risk your profits after every success, and there is no protection against losing runs.

1324 baccarat system – This strategy refers to the number of units you should wager after every win. So start betting 1 unit, then 3, then 2, then 4, then reset. While a certain degree of sophistication is implied with this system, losing runs will still kill your bankroll.
