1.1 Introduction to Live Dealer Baccarat

The object of the game is to bet on whichever of two hands, the player’s hand or the banker’s hand, that the Player thinks will have a point value closest to 9. The Player can also bet on a tie.

The game is presented to the Player with a life person dealing the cards on screen to provide the Player with a realistic gaming environment in real time.

The theoretical return to player of this game is 98.41%.
Over a long period of time, the game is likely to average a return to the Player of 98.48% of the total bets made.

1.2 Participation Instructions and Bet Options

To place a bet, the Player moves the cursor to the pictures of the chips in the lower-right corner of the game window and left-click the chip value that they want to use. The Player then moves the cursor to the Betting Area on the table layout marked as players or bankers, tie or pair and / or super six, then left-clicks to place their bets. The chip will automatically appear in the betting box, with the total value of the bet written alongside. The bet amount will also appear at the bottom of the window.

Each left-click will increase the bet value by one chip of the same value, up to the maximum bet for that table. If the Player wants to use a different chip value of this bet, they must move the cursor back to the pictures of the chips at the lower-right corner of the game window on the screen and left-click on the new chip value that they want to use. Then the Player must move the cursor back to the Betting Area on the table layout, and left-click again to increase the bet.

Players must place their bets before the 30 second Betting Timer at the centre of the game window expires. Betting is not allowed once the Betting Timer has expired.

All bets are confirmed and taken into the Player’s account once the CONFIRM BET button is left-clicked. Any bets placed after the CONFIRM BET button has been left-clicked but before the Betting Timer has expired must be followed by the CONFIRM BET button being left-clicked. If this is not done, then these additional bets will NOT be confirmed and NOT taken into the Player’s account.

To remove all bets from the table layout, left-click the CLEAR BETS button. To remove the last bet from the table layout, left click the UNDO button. Note both CLEAR BETS and UNDO can only be done before the CONFIRM BET button has been left-clicked. If the CLEAR BETS is left-clicked, then these bets will NOT be confirmed and NOT taken into the Player’s account.

As soon as the Betting Timer has expired, the dealer will deal two hands of cards, which are called the player’s hand and the banker’s hand. All cards are dealt face up. The cards will be drawn in the following order:

  1. The first card for the player’s hand.
  2. The first card for the banker’s hand.
  3. The second card for the player’s hand.
  4. The second card for the banker’s hand.
  5. If dictated by the drawing rules, the third card for the player’s hand.
  6. If dictated by the drawing rules, the third card for the banker’s hand.

More than three cards can never be drawn for either hand.

There are no values greater than nine in the game of baccarat. All card values are recalculated when the combined value of two or more cards is greater than nine. This new card value is determined by subtracting ten from the combined card value every time it reaches a number greater than nine. Below are a few examples of this equation.

4 + 2 + 6 = 2
5 + 6 + 8 = 9
7 + 3 = 0
10 + 10 + 10 = 0

The hand with the highest point value wins. All losing bets will be collected and all winning bets paid. If a bet is a winner, the winnings will be posted to the credit balance and updated in the credits display upon selecting the next game or upon returning to the Lobby.

If both hands have the same point value, that game is a tie and neither side wins or loses. In this case, tie bets win, but players and bankers bets do not win or lose so the bet is refunded back to the Player.

4.7 Blackjack Terms

BlackjackAs well as being the name of the game, Blackjack is also the best hand. It consists of any ace and any ten-valued card in the initial two-card hand. When a Blackjack appears, whether for the Player or for the House, no other cards are drawn. Blackjack is an automatic winner, except against another Blackjack, in this case the hand is a Push (also called a Tie or Stand-Off).
Even MoneyEven Money will be offered to the Player who has Blackjack. Even Money offers the Player to claim the winning with 1 to 1 payout regardless of the House hand’s result.
BustIf drawing additional cards by either the Player or the House results in a card total exceeding 21, that hand has “too many” and is considered to have Bust. A Bust Player hand loses automatically. When this occurs, the House will not draw a third or any additional cards for the House hand, and that hand is finished.
DoubleOn any two-card hand, the Player may choose to double their bet. This allows the Player the opportunity to win double. The DOUBLE button in the game window will illuminate to advise the Player that this option is available. If the Player decides to Double, they can now left-click on this DOUBLE and an additional bet will be placed alongside the initial bet, which is fixed at a value equal to the initial bet. One card will be dealt automatically to the Player’s hand. The Player will not be allowed to draw more than one additional card. If the Player decides not to Double, the game will continue as normal.
Hit/StandThe Player has to decide whether to Hit, meaning to draw an additional card(s) or to stand, meaning to retain the current hand. The Player may Hit or Stand by left-clicking on the HIT or STAND buttons provided in the game window. The House has to Hit or Stand according to the Drawing Rules.
InsuranceIf the exposed House card is an Ace, the Player will be offered the opportunity to buy Insurance. The INSURANCE layout in the game window will illuminate to advise the Player that this bet is available. The Player may now left-click on the chip to place an Insurance bet. If the Player decides to place Insurance Bet and the House does have Blackjack, the Player will receive payout odds of 2-1 for the insurance bet (half the initial bet), and the Insurance bet will be returned to the Player. The Player will of course lose the initial bet. So the net effect is that the Player breaks even. If the House does not have Blackjack, the Player loses the Insurance bet and the game then continues as usual.
SurrenderIf the Player feels that the initial two-card hand is not strong enough to beat the House hand, the Player may choose to Surrender. This action will finish the hand at that point, with a loss of half of the initial bet. The SURRENDER button in the game window will illuminate to advise the Player that this option is available. The Player can now left-click on this button and half the original bet will be returned.
SplitIf the Player’s first two cards are of equal value, they are called a pair. This allows the Player the opportunity to play two hands and win twice. The SPLIT button in the game window will illuminate to advise the Player that this option is available. The Player may now left-click on this button and an additional bet will be placed alongside the initial bet, which is fixed at a value equal to the initial bet. If the Player’s decides to Split the pair, one card will be dealt automatically to the first of the two Split hands. The Player will then have the option to draw additional cards until that hand is completed, using the HIT, DOUBLE or STAND buttons. If the Player decides not to Split the pair, the game continues as normal.
