Live It Up with Live Dealer Baccarat
Baccarat is an iconic casino card game that graces the floors of every top-class online and land-based casino in Canada. Popularised by James Bond films and the influence of the Asian market, Baccarat features two main versions, namely Chemin de Fer and Punto Banco. Of the two, Punto Banco, or Player/Banker Baccarat is the game most commonly offered at online casinos as players can compete directly against the house.
While the electronic version of online Baccarat is more than suitable for some, the introduction of live casino games has revolutionized how Baccarat can be played online. Instead of relying on random number generators to produce the gaming result, players can go head to head against real live dealers where real cards and real tables are used to create a realistic gaming situation.

How Live Dealer Baccarat 101
As with all live dealer games, live dealer Baccarat is conducted by a professional dealer in a live casino studio. When you log into the game, you are connected directly to the dealer through a live video feed. The video feed only works in one direction, which means you can see and hear everything the dealer is doing and saying, but not the other way around. Multiple cameras are used to capture every part of the action. While one camera is focused on the dealer, others zoom in on the table and cards.
To get started, you must take an open seat at one of the available tables. Once seated, you can be dealt in at the start of each new round. During the game, the in-game chat window can be used to send messages to the dealer as well as the other players around the table. This makes the game more social and interactive.
When it comes to the mechanics of the game, live dealer Baccarat works in exactly the same way as the online version. The integrated betting software allows for bets to be placed using virtual chips that are then placed on the highlighted betting area on the video feed.
Once everyone around the table has placed their bets, the round can begin. As with standard Punto Banco Baccarat, the dealer starts by dealing two cards to the player hand and two cards to the banker hand. At the start of the round, you have the option of betting on either the player hand or the banker hand. There is also the option of betting on a tie.
Winning a Hand
After the first two cards have been dealt, a third card may be drawn for either hand if required. Once the final cards have been drawn, the hand with a score closest to 9 wins. If the player hand wins, a payout of 1:1 is awarded. If the banker hand wins, the payout is slightly less as the banker takes a cut. Betting on a tie pays out the most but is a risky bet.
