Play Live Baccarat at Ignition Casino

The game of Baccarat started in Italy 600 years ago, way back in the 1400’s, before it spread to France and later to England. In Australia, Baccarat might have been imported by the British, and it can now be found in real casinos and online casinos all over the country.

Live Baccarat has quite the stylish reputation, one that was made famous in early James Bond movies. Bond played it as his preferred game, surrounded by suave villains and classy women. Live Baccarat in Australia, of course, can now be played online and in your shorts and a t-shirt, surrounded by friends on your own!

Somewhere along the way in the course of its evolution, casino owners successfully marketed Baccarat as a game for high-end players by setting high minimum bets, and they hid the Baccarat tables in special rooms with posh leather chairs. This upscale shift helped add to the allure of the game.

But no matter what you’re wearing – this is Australia after all, mate – you can always recreate this in your own home if you really want to get into the Baccarat mood.

Real money, live dealer Baccarat games are available online at Ignition every day, so you can find a game that brings you that real casino feeling at almost any time of the day.

Baccarat is a game of chance that is easy to learn – even if it’s maybe a bit tricky to pronounce (try Bah-kur-RAH). It’s fun to play with online friends too.

Simply pick the amount you want to wager with, have a good plan for how much time and money you want to spend, and take a minute to read below for the basic rules of Live Baccarat and the benefits of playing at Ignition.

You’ll be playing for real money real soon with a live baccarat dealer!

How to play live baccarat in Australia for real money?

You place bets on either the “player,” the “banker” or the “tie”, so you won’t be needing to battle other players at the same time.

Once your bet is in place, the Player and Banker will each receive two Baccarat cards from an online multiple deck shoe, face-up. (Check to make sure how many decks are in the shoe if you’re a serious player – most, like Ignition, use six decks for real money Baccarat).

Aces are valued at 1 point, twos through nines at face value (the number on the card) and face cards are worth zero points.

The dealer distributes two cards to himself for the “banker” hand and two cards to the person designated the “player”. A hand’s score is the right digit of the sum of the two cards. The left digit is canceled – meaning you can’t go over 9. So, a 5 and a 6 is scored as a 1. A pair of 5’s is scored as a zero, and so on.

The score will always range from zero to 9, meaning that nine is the best score. Suits don’t matter in online live Baccarat, so you can just focus on the numbers.

After the initial deal, the player or the banker stands when dealt a hand with a score of 8 or 9 (a “natural”). The player also stands if he is dealt a 6 or 7. Otherwise, the player draws a third card.

When the player does not have a natural, the banker hits on totals of zero to 2. If the player stands, the banker hits on 5 or less. If the player hits, the banker acts according to rules that determine whether he hits or stands.

The hand with a higher score wins. Bets on player pay even money. Bets on the banker pay 19 to 20, or .95 to 1. The tie pays 8 to 1. Bets on banker and player push in the event of a tie.

While online baccarat is mostly a game of chance, there are several ways to play that might help you really hit it big.

At the table with a live dealer, you’ll see a number of different odds to wager on. Any pair pays 5:1, while hitting a tie pays you 8:1. Straight up betting on the Player hand is a 1:1 bet, and you can even bet on the Banker if you’d like.

All along, you’ll feel like you’re in a live casino no matter where you’re sitting in Oz. Ignition’s live dealers do a great job at keeping the game moving, and you’ll see just how great the user interface is as soon as you log in.

Aiming even higher? A perfect pair pays 25:1, which will have you rolling like Bond himself in his latest sweet ride.
