However, whilst Baccarat was, at one time, reserved for those with bulging wallets, it’s now more accessible than ever before.
Live mobile baccarat allows players from all over the world to play wherever and whenever they want – and you don’t even need to don a tux or an evening gown!
How Does Live Mobile Baccarat Work?
As with all live dealer mobile games, live mobile baccarat is played in real time, against a professionally trained croupier via video stream. This means it offers an immersive experience and allows for players to chat to the croupier.
What’s more, mobile casinos now offer multiple variants of live mobile baccarat, so you can be sure to find a game which suits your playing style and budget.
How to Play Live Mobile Baccarat
Thanks to its reputation, playing Baccarat can often feel a little daunting – especially if you’re a casino newbie. However, the game is actually relatively easy to get to grips with.
In the sections below, you can find out everything you need to know about playing live mobile baccarat.
The Aim of the Game
When playing Baccarat, the aim is to take on the ‘bank’ to create a better two-card hand. The winning hand will be the one which totals closest to nine.
Card Values in Live Mobile Baccarat
- Number cards (2-9) are worth their face value
- The Ace is worth 1
- Tens and face cards (J, Q, K) are worth zero
When the total of the hand is worth 10 or more, the 10 is subtracted. For example, a hand with a 6 and a 7 would be worth 3 (a total of 13 minus the 10).
Betting in Live Mobile Baccarat
In live mobile baccarat, players can either choose to bet on the Player (themselves) or the Banker. The bet is on which hand will be equal closest to nine. In some variants of the game, you may also be able to bet that a tie will occur.
Different Variants of Live Mobile Baccarat
One of the biggest advantages of playing live mobile baccarat is that there are now so many different variants of the game available. This ensures that all player preferences are catered for.
Side Bet Games
Many live mobile baccarat games now come with the option of placing a side-bet. This is a stand-alone bet which doesn’t impact the main gameplay but does offer the chance to win extra cash.
Different Live Mobile Baccarat Deal Types
Many live mobile baccarat games now offer different deal types. This may impact the speed of the deal, or whether or not you get to peek at your cards.
Multiplayer baccarat is also a popular live mobile baccarat variant. As the name suggests, this allows you to play with other players sat at the table.
