What is Baccarat?
Baccarat is a table game that is popular at online and land-based casinos alike. Fundamentally, the objective of Baccarat is to guess correctly which three outcomes – player, banker, or tie – will win the next deal. We explain everything you need to know to play Stake Original Baccarat below.
How to Play Baccarat Online at Stake
Playing Baccarat at Stake.com and other table games is straightforward, and you can get started by following these steps:
Step 2: Place a bet before the cards are dealt, choosing from banker, player, or tie.
Step 3: Follow the action and understand the rules (explained below) as the dealer completes the game.
Step 4: Collect any winnings and place another bet to continue playing.
What are the Basic Rules of Baccarat?
The aim of the game in Baccarat is to predict which hand will be closer to nine – the player’s or the banker’s - and you can bet on either, as well as the tie. Additionally, the following rules apply to the banker & player hands following the initial deal:
If the player receives a natural hand of 8 or 9, it’s an immediate win and no further cards are drawn. As a result, the player’s hand stands.
The player’s hand is also required to stand on totals of 6 or 7.
On totals from 0 to 5, the player draws a third card (unless the banker has 8 or 9).
When the banker’s first two cards total:
0/1/2 - Bank draws in all instances unless the player shows a natural 8 or 9.
3 – Bank draws if the player’s third card is 0-7 or 9. The banker stands when the player has 8.
4 – Bank draws if the player’s third card is 2-7. The banker stands when the player has 0/1/8/9.
5 – Bank draws if the player’s third card is 4-7. The banker stands when the player has 0-3 or 8-9.
6 – Bank draws if the player’s third card is 6-7. The banker stands when the player has 0-5 or 8-9.
7 – Bank stands.
8-9 – Neither hand draws a third card.
While you don’t need to memorise all of the above banker rules, it’s helpful to have them to refer to during any Baccarat game.
