Rules: How to Play Baccarat?
Your goal when playing Baccarat is to guess whose hand will be closest to 9 correctly. Unlike other table games, you can bet on the Player to win, the Dealer to win, or a Tie.
Online Baccarat has a simple table layout. On the left-hand side are your chips, and on the right-hand side is the Deal button. Also on the table are your three main betting options and optional side bets. To place a bet, tap or click on one of your chips and drag it onto the betting area. When you're ready to play, tap the Deal button.
Player, Banker, Tie
You can wager on three different outcomes. The Player winning, the Banker winning, or a Tie. Both hands start with two cards face-up. The card values are then added together, and the one closest to 9 wins. But in Baccarat, you can't go over 9 points. In this situation, only the 2nd digit counts. For example, if the Player hand has 16, the actual score would be 6.
Number cards 2-9 are worth their face value (so a 3 is worth 3, and a 7 is worth 7). Tens and picture cards (Jack, Queen, King) are worth 0 points, and Aces count as 1 point. If the hand has a 10 and an Ace, it's worth 1 point in total.
3rd card rule
When a hand has 8 or 9, it'll stand automatically, which means they won't receive any more cards. The Player hand also stands on 6 or 7. Here are the situations in which the Dealer will receive a third card.
|The Dealer will draw a 3rd card||Exception|
|3 points||If the Player's third card is an 8|
|4 points||If the Player's third card is a 0,1,8, or 9|
|5 points||If the Player's third card is between 4-7|
|6 points||If the Player's third card is a 6 or 8|
It can be hard getting to grips with the third card rule, but if you want to master Baccarat, you'll need to understand how it works and when each hand will stand or draw another card. To help you absorb this rule quicker, use our chart below, which outlines when the Player draws a third card and when the Banker will draw a third card. S = Stand H = Hit

Baccarat Odds and Payouts
Online Baccarat offers excellent odds and payouts, and the house edge is among the lowest you'll find in any casino game. The Banker bet provides the lowest house edge at 1.06% and pays out 0.95:1 (due to the 5% commission). If you bet on the Player's hand, the house edge is 1.24% and pays 1:1. The Tie bet pays 8/1, but the house edge rises to 14.44%.
|Type of bet||Payout||Example|
|Dealer||0.95:1||Bet $1 win $1.95|
|Player||1:1||Bet $1 win $2|
|Tie||8:1||Bet $1 win $9|
At most of our Baccarat tables, you'll find a number of side bets available. These bets are optional and payout independently from your main bet, so if you lose your main bet, you can still win your side wager.
|Side bet||How to win||Payout||House Edge|
|Player Pair||The Player's first two cards are a matching pair, e.g., 7+7||11/1||11.25%|
|Banker Pair||Just like Player Pair, but you're betting the Dealer's first two cards are a pair||11/1||11.25%|
|Perfect Pair||Place a wager that either the Player's or Dealer's first two cards are a suited pair, e.g., 5 of spades||25/1||17.07%|
|Either Pair||Bet that either the Banker or Player are dealt a matching pair of cards||5/1||4.35%|
|Small||The total number of cards is four||1.5/1||5.27%|
|Big||The total number of cards is 5-6||0.54/1||4.35%|
Top 3 Baccarat Strategies
Baccarat is primarily a game of luck compared to skill games like Blackjack and Poker. Apart from placing your bets, you can't control the game in any way. The cards are dealt with automatically, and so is the 3rd card rule.
To have the best odds when playing Baccarat, you'll want to follow these three strategies. While we can't guarantee you'll win every time, you can help push the odds in your favour as much as possible without taking unnecessary risks.
- Bet on the Dealer – Betting on the Dealer long-term will give you the lowest house edge overall of 1.06%. While the difference may seem small compared to the Player bet with a house edge of 1.36%, long term, it could mean the difference between winning and losing. The difference in house edge is caused by the Banker's increased options to draw a third card, which slightly increases the chances of a winning hand.
- Avoid Betting on a Tie – The Banker bet offers the best odds of winning and the lowest payout. The Tie bet is the exact opposite! The odds are much worse, but the potential payout is substantially higher at 8:1. While there's no harm in betting on a Tie, bear in mind that statistically, it reduces your overall house edge when playing. Only use the Tie bet if you're prepared to take on the extra risk. Experienced players will usually leave the Tie bet alone.
- Money management – No matter your play style or strategy, proper bankroll management is the most important thing to master. Think of your bankroll as your gambling budget. Once you've set the amount you want to play with, don't add any more to it until your next planned session, no matter whether you win or lose. Your gambling budget shouldn't contain any money or funds required for your living costs, such as rent, mortgage, bills, food, travel, etc. It should be money set aside for entertainment purposes only. We recommend that you use our responsible gambling tools to help manage your gambling budget.
