Basic rules of live baccarat
The rules of baccarat are pretty simple. In each hand, the player and the dealer, who is called the banker in baccarat, are dealt two cards. The task of each of them is to score 9 or as close to 9 as the number of points. 10 and picture cards have a denomination of 0, aces – 1, and the denomination of the remaining cards corresponds to their denomination (two – 2, three – 3, etc.).
Depending on the number of points on the first two cards, a third card may be dealt. Players place bets on a player or banker to win or on a draw. Winning bets are paid 1: 1. If you win the bet, a 5% commission is charged on the banker. A draw bet pays 8: 1. There are two additional bets to choose from – on the player’s pair and the banker’s pair. These bets are paid 11: 1.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) for live baccarat is 98.94%.
