Quality Live Baccarat In Canada
Invented in Italy about 500 years ago, Baccarat is as fresh and as entertaining as ever – but why take our word for it when you can experience it for yourself at Spin Casino. We bring you the finest Live Baccarat tables available in Canada.
Thanks to live streaming and award-winning software, you can play the famous game with professional dealers in real time. You see what happens as it happens – nothing’s pre-recorded. What’s more, you can use the live chat feature to enjoy social interaction during your gaming session.
From Italy, the game spread to France and the rest of Europe, and from there, it has travelled the world. Live dealer Baccarat is the most popular game in Asia, where it’s played at the bean-shaped tables that inspired ours. Unlike those tables, which seat only 7 players at a time, ours always have a seat ready and waiting for you. The best part is that there’s no need to travel to take advantage of what’s available at Spin Casino. Our tables run by friendly dealers are available 24 hours a day, so you can play Live Baccarat at our online casino whenever you feel like it.
Basic Rules Of Live Baccarat
You’ll find a tempting selection of live dealer Baccarat tables at our casino, and the same basic rules are used in all of them. The objective is to bet on the hand that will win with a score as close as possible to the maximum of 9 points.
There are only 2 hands in play, and they’re called the Player, or Punto, and the Banker, or Banco. You can bet that either hand will win, or that they will tie, at the start of an online Baccarat live dealer game.
The dealer will deal two cards to each hand and then will check the scores to see if one or both hands must hit (take another card) before revealing the winner. When it comes to scoring, cards 2 through 9 are worth their face value, Aces are worth 1 point, and 10s, Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 0 points.
Baccarat And Strategy
Like many other casino games, live dealer Baccarat is all about chance. Even though one of the hands is called the Player, you are uninvolved in the game itself, and any moves made by that hand or by the Banker are determined by scores and rules. This means strategy cannot be used during play.
Some players like to base their betting decisions on the results of previous rounds, which they can see by viewing the Roads. The Big, Small, Big Eye, and Cockroach roads are different pictorial representations of the results. There’s no guarantee that any patterns will continue, so it’s best to stick to basic tips such as betting on the Banker hand because it has better odds of winning than the Player hand, setting a betting budget and win/loss limits for yourself, and deciding beforehand the length of time for which you’ll play online Baccarat live dealer games.
Odds And Payouts
Learning about the odds and payouts is one of the best ways to make informed choices when playing at our online Baccarat live dealer tables. The 3 standard bets, namely Player, Banker, and Tie, and they all have different odds and payout rates.
Our tables use the standard 8 decks of cards (Jokers removed) in the shoes. This gives the Banker the winning odds of 45.86% and a 1.06% house edge. The Player bet has odds of 44.62% and a 1.24% house edge. The Tie bet’s odds are 9.52%, and its house edge is 14.36%. With those odds, a winning Banker pays 0.95:1, a winning Player bet pays 1:1, and a winning Tie bet pays 8:1. As you can see, even though the Banker bet has a 5% commission, it has the best chances of winning. This makes it a bet to consider placing when you play Baccarat online live.
