Baccarat is the high-rolling card game that will bring a touch of Monte Carlo glamour to your living room.
The challenge of Baccarat is to bet on the outcome of a game between the player and the banker – the hand that totals closest to 9 is the winner. You can bet on your hand, the dealer’s hand or even a tie, which pays out at 8/1.

The challenge when you play Baccarat online is to bet on the outcome of a game between the player and the banker - the hand that totals closest to 9 will win!
In Baccarat, you have the option to bet on the player, on the banker, on the tie, or on any combination of those three options.
Values of the Cards
The cards in Baccarat are valued as follows:
- 10, Jack, Queen and King all have a value of 0
- 2-9 have their normal value
- Aces have a value of 1
If the sum of the cards is higher than 10 then only the second number is considered - so 18 would be 8 and so on. This also means that scores of 10 or 20 both count as 0.
How to Bet
The player and the banker are each given two cards to start a game of Baccarat.
If either has a hand with a score of 8 or 9 then no more cards will be dealt.
What is Baccarat?
Two cards will initially be dealt to the player and bank on the Baccarat table.
If either of the hands scores 8 or 9 then it is a ‘natural’ hand and both hands stand.
If the sum of the player’s hand is 5 or less then it will be dealt another card. If the player does not draw a third card then the bank will stand on any score of 6 or more.

Why Play Baccarat?
Baccarat is a classic casino game that is relatively simple to learn and play, as outlined above. Furthermore, it features a higher RTP than a lot of other online games, meaning you have a decent chance of triggering some winnings when playing at the Baccarat table.
Return To Player (RTP): 98.94%
The expected return is the amount we pay out to players relative to the amount of wagering on the game.
For example, if we take £100 of wagers we will, on average, pay out £98.94 of wins.
This return is based on the player making the best choices.
