Luxurious Online Baccarat at Casino La Vida

Baccarat is an easy game to enjoy; it doesn’t require much strategy but will give you a chance to test your skills at predicting the future. Predict it correctly and you will be well on your way to living the La Vida life with your Baccarat winnings, the kind of life James Bond would be envious of.

How To Make Yourself a Winner

In the game of Baccarat, 2 hands of 2 cards are dealt to the Player and the Banker. For you to win you must predict which hand will win or lose, or if they will tie. To win, a hand must be worth 9 points, or be the closest to 9 points. There are 3 bets you can place - either that the Player hand will be closer to 9 than the Banker, that the Banker hand will be closer to 9 than the Player, or that the hands will be valued the same, and result in a tie.

Remember that the Player and Banker are just the name of the hands and do not represent you or the house. Neither you nor the dealer can change the outcome of the cards, that responsibility lies solely with Lady Luck, so be sure to invite her to your table!

Understand the Winning Hands

At Casino La Vida Canada, we play Baccarat with a 52 card deck, and you will need to place your bet before the hands are dealt. All the cards have different point values, so once the 2 hands have been dealt the total needs to be calculated. Cards numbered 2 to 9 are worth the corresponding number of points, face cards or Jacks, Queens and Kings are worth 0 points as is a 10, and Aces are worth 1 point. No Jokers are used in this game.

In order to calculate the total points of the hands, the 2 card values are added together but only the last digit is used. For example: a hand receives a 5 and a 7, together they are 12, thus this hands value is 2, as the maximum a hand can be worth is 9. In some instances when a hand value is a certain amount additional cards are dealt to either the Player or Banker hands, but don’t worry about remembering all the combinations, we automatically deal the additional card if required, so you can sit back and relax!

Getting Started at The Baccarat Table

Other than inviting Lady Luck, there are a few extra tricks and tips you can try to better your chances of winning, and we’re only too happy to share them with you. The rarest bet to win, although it offers the best payout, is a tie. We recommend you take some time to familiarise yourself with this table game, start small and gradually build your way up to big winnings as your confidence grows. Betting on the banker is your best bet, as the Banker will win a little bit more than 50 percent of the time, so if you’re just getting going, bet on the Banker to win!
