Step right up, and take your seat opposite the banker on the iconic bean-shaped table as you indulge in the game of choice of one James Bond: baccarat, otherwise known as chemin de fer. A game of chance, baccarat takes place between two 'hands'; the player (you) and the banker who, in our version of live baccarat, is a real-life person who appears on your screen in front of you, surrounded by the grandiosity of a realistically-rendered casino.
Select your amount and place your bet on one of two hands, the player's or the banker's, with our easy-to-use interface, then watch as the croupier deals out the cards live in front of you. Two cards are dealt out on each hand before the points total of both are read out. All numbered cards are worth their face value, other than 10, which is worth zero. Face cards are also worth zero, while aces are valued at one. If the total of a hand is more than 10, the second digit becomes the value of the hand (so, if 14, the value is 4). The winner is the hand closest to nine.
If the value of the first card dealt out is eight or nine, that's an automatic win, while if the value is lower than five, the player gets the chance to draw out a third card.

Live Baccarat online is a simple game which requires you to bet on whether the Player's hand or the Banker's hand will be closest to a total of 9. You can also bet on a tie - ie the total of the Player's hand and the Banker's hand are the same. The scoring is shown in the example below:
Choose your chip value by clicking on the relevant chip. When the betting closes, the Player and the Banker are dealt two card each. Depending on the total, a third card may also be dealt to each hand. A winning Player bet pays out a 1:1. A winning Banker bet pays out at 0.95:1. A winning tie bet pays out at 8:1.
