Frequently Asked Questions on Baccarat

The following are the most frequently asked question on baccarat.

What are the Payout Options Available on Baccarat?

Payout is nothing but the amount you would get when winning a game in an online casino. However, this amount would not be fixed throughout the game. You will get a different amount as a payout when you place your bet on different hands. It could also differ depending on the casino you play in. Usually, the payout differences depending on the bet placement are as follows,

  • Let us assume that you place your bet on the banker’s hand thinking that it would get a digit close to nine sooner. If so, the maximum amount you could win in this type of bet would be the same as your bet. The payout proportion concerning your bet amount would be one-to-one. However, you should pay 5% of your winning amount to the casino house.
  • Let us think the other way and you place your bet on the player’s hand. Now, your payout proportion will also be the same one to one. However, there will not be a requirement for you to pay the casino house any commissions.
  • If you place your bet on a tie between the two hands, your payout proportion would be 8 to 1.

What is a Third card Rule and why is it Significant in Baccarat?

It is possible for either of the hands to win the game by getting an eight or nine in the first set of cards itself. However, we could not say that it will happen every time. At times, there could be a total of less than eight on both hands. In this case, the dealer would provide the hands with a third card to continue the game. However, there is a specific set of rules to follow for each hand to get this third card as below,

A player would get a third card if the total of his first set (his selected hand) is anything from one to five.

A banker hand would get the third card if,

  • It contains anything from 0,1 and 2.
  • A 3 while the other hand has anything but eight.
  • A 4 while the other has something between two and seven.
  • A 5 while the other hand has 4,5,6, or 7.
  • A 6 while the other hand has 6 or 7.
  • A 7 while the other hand stands.
