Itching to get your hands on some unique concept baccarat tables? Good news, we got them too!

Popular Types of Online Baccarat

Punto Banco

The closest to classic baccarat, Punto Banco usually requires no nameship formality in North America as it’s the most common. Play unfolds under strict drawing rules, or if you want to get fancy, according to a ‘tableau’ (that’s table en francais!). This table sets the law for when cards are drawn, and therefore, no player decisions are necessary after the initial bet on Player (punto) or Banker (banco) has been made.

Mini Baccarat

Mini is as mini does, as this game plays with smaller bets on a smaller table. Its main deviation from classic rules is that the dealer is always the Banker. This all makes it a welcoming table for beginners and a top choice for casual players.

European Baccarat

A little more freedom can be found in European Baccarat. Those strict guidelines of Punto Blanco have gone by the wayside and choices are back! Players choose to stand or draw on a hand valued at 5, and the Banker can choose to draw a third card or not. Take that, tableau!

Chemin de Fer

Observant folk will immediately recognize this as the French version, literally translated to ‘railway’ and often simplified to ‘Chemmy’. In this popular version, the twist is that players can be the Banker while other participants are the Player, thus putting players in competition with each other.

Baccarat Banque

Besides the fact that Baccarat Banque plays with only three decks, the main difference is who the Banker is. In this Euro favourite, the casino is always the Banker.

Super Pan 9

Let’s revisit the main rule of baccarat for this one, in which players have the option to bet on one of two hands, Player or Banker. In Super Pan 9, there’s no such choice and the same counting game to 9 plays out in player versus dealer action. One other tidbit is that players start off with three cards rather than two.

No Commission Baccarat (Super 6)

A game that most real estate agents will likely shy away from! As the name suggests, commission has been eliminated, which slightly alters the payouts in this version. Another perk to Super 6, is the side bet action in which players win if the Banker wins with six.

Three Card Baccarat

Can you guess? While basic baccarat dishes out two cards to start, Three Card Baccarat deals out…wait for it…three. Indeed, three is a theme here and if you find your cards looking back at you, aka three face cards, you’re a winner. Overall, face cards hold big value here and notably, this variant is played with one deck only.

Online Baccarat vs Live Baccarat

Players are drawn to the casino table game baccarat because of its simplicity. Online or playing at your closest local casino, the game rules are the same. But, there are pros and cons - let’s get into them below.

Pros and Cons of Online Baccarat


  • Options: From buy-in limits to sidebets, and even decor, you’ve got choices 24/7 to roar home about! And if you’re apprehensive about trying a new game or side bet, use the demo mode to get a feel for the betting rounds or game using virtual coins before jumping in with real cash. You won’t see that at a brick & mortar!

  • Mobile Optimization - Baccarat’s simplicity makes it an ideal choice for mobile gaming, so it’s good to know that our baccarat games, and all our slots, casino tables, and game shows are optimized for mobile game play.

  • Bonuses & Promotions - Playing online baccarat means you’re privy to promotions, special offers, and bonuses that can reward you with free play and extra bucks added to your deposits. Always check your My Offers page for our latest deals!


  • Social Setback: With the game of baccarat being so simple, it’s often the social interaction that draws players to the felt. After all, there’s nothing quite like sharing the joy of winning with your table mates. Even though this may be lost in online gaming, it has been reinvented with live casino games!

  • Pace of Play: Players at an online baccarat table will see more hands per hour thanks to tech, and the speed of play that can be enforced by time limits. Be prepared to manage your bankroll accordingly!

Pros and Cons of Live Baccarat


  • Bring Social Back: Live Baccarat games bring that social aspect of baccarat many players crave back! Game tables often feature immersive studios, chat, and a dealer that can speak directly with you, offering help or social fun.

  • Tech savvy: Online baccarat brings leading-edge tech to the table felt by providing immersive camera angles, and in some cases even 360°coverage of the action! It also allows for side bet opportunities that can only enhance the table’s excitement.


  • Demo Modes: By nature of our live casino games being dealt in real-time, it’s just not possible to jump in with virtual coins. But, you can head back to regular online baccarat for a demo mode trial run or simply jump in a game as an observer to watch and learn how baccarat betting rounds work.

  • Play time: Live casino games are multiplayer editions, meaning, when joining a game that’s playing out in real-time, you may have to wait for a round to finish in order to jump in. Under this same notion, it’s more difficult to pause and play as you feel fit.

Which One Should You Choose?

LeoVegas online casino offers both ‘regular’ online games, optimized for mobile game play, desktop and tablet, as well as state-of-the-art live casino games. The choice comes down to personal preference. Just like in ‘real life’, online life is also full of introverts and extroverts. Some players like to log-on, grab a table, and play or even multi-table play a few of their favourite online casino games, while others like to engage with players from around the world and be part of a social betting experience. This is the key difference to online versus live casino games and the choice is yours!

Baccarat Rules

Tricky to say, easy to play. For those who feel pressure making decisions, this game is for you. It’s a one stop decision shop based on two hands - a Banker and a Player.

While these two hands are named Banker and Player, they could have easily been named Hand #1 and #2 or This & That, or Frick & Frack. Think about that! This is not a dealer versus player game at all. Between these two hands, you’re betting on which one will get the closest to 9. Main betting options are Player, Banker and Tie.

Once Player and Banker receive their two cards, a third draw is pre-determined by baccarat rules, already in place. From this point on, the cards fall according to the guidelines, and especially when playing online, this is your time to sit back and see where lady luck falls.

For interest's sake, you can jump over to our how to play baccarat online guide to get all the deets.

As this is a counting game, it’s time to dig into the card values.

  • Ace equals 1

  • King, Queen, Jack equal 10 or 0

  • Cards 2 - 9 are held at face value

We bet you’ve already noticed that face cards are somewhat two-faced, holding values of 10 or 0. Since there is no bust in baccarat, a hand exceeding 9 (10 or higher of course), drops by 10. Example: a King (0), a Nine (9), and an Ace (1) add up to 10, however, given our values and this drop rule, we’re left with 0.

Here’s the good news. Playing online takes away any apprehension you may feel when sitting down as a beginner. Why? The croupier, live or video, takes care of all the prompting for you. Bets are easily managed with a few clicks, you can chat up other players and feel confident in your play. After all, the best way to learn a new game is to jump in and play!

What Are Baccarat Side Bets?

If you’re left craving a little more action after your initial Player, Banker or Tie decision, baccarat side bets may be for you! Remember that while side bets pay well, the house advantage is much greater than in the base game. Let’s go over a few of the most common ones:

Perfect Pairs pays when the first two cards dealt are an exact match in both rank and suit.

Or, there’s Dragon Bet (house edge Player 2.65% and Banker 9.37%) which pays up to 30:1 when a natural is dealt (meaning, a 9 comes ‘naturally’ with two cards totalling 8 or 9) or wins by a large sum.

Another common choice is the All Black or All Red side bet (house edge Black 6.53% and Red 14%) that pays up to 24:1, you guessed it, on whether the respective hand is all black or all red.

A Seamless Baccarat Experience!

Regardless of how diverse our baccarat offering might be, one thing’s for sure; immersing yourself within the game from the comfort of your home or while on the go will be smooth sailing from start to finish. This is thanks to the state-of-the-art technology which our leading providers utilise to ensure you enjoy streams of the highest quality.

Baccarat FAQ

What is the best baccarat strategy?

Baccarat is a game of pure luck. Remember, once you’ve chosen which hand to bet on, basic baccarat rules take over, and it plays out without any further decisions required. So, a winning strategy? Tough call. Go with what you know - that the Banker has a slight 1% edge, shy away from a Tie bet, and use the stats of coups gone by to see how recent hands have played out.

What is the best bet in baccarat?

If you’re a stickler for details, then the Banker is your bet. Granted, it only pulls a favourable edge of about 1% over the Player’s, so in this game of luck, it’s really fair game on ‘best bet’.

Can I play online baccarat for free?

Of course - free play has to be one of the best beginner perks of online casino play! Jump into free baccarat games, and when you get the swing of it, our casino world is your oyster to jump into for real wins. Another route for newbs is to simply observe the game in our Live Casino, and absorb all there is to know.

Should I bet more on Banker rather than Player?

We’ve known from our look at odds that the Banker has a slight edge over the Player - and we mean slight, like 1%ish. But, an edge is an edge. And with that 5% commission on Banker wins, it comes out pretty much a coin flip in this luck-based game. But, you asked so we’ll say Banker. Final answer.

Should I bet on a tie in baccarat?

Let’s reiterate what the odds and pay table tell us about this wager - the odds of hitting it barely creep over 9.5% and for that a lotta lady luck needs to be on your side. So, a payout of 8:1 may not seem quite worth it. But, it’s your game, and most importantly, your money at stake.

What is a house edge in Baccarat?

The house edge in baccarat varies depending on the type of bet. With three possible outcomes, Player wins, Banker wins, and a Tie, the house edge is 1.24%, 1.06%, and 14%, respectively. Baccarat has one of the better odds available in casino games.

What is a Dragon Tiger Baccarat?

Dragon Tiger Baccarat is a simplified version of traditional baccarat - yes simpler. Two cards are drawn, one for the Dragon and one for the Tiger. Players place bets on which hand will have the higher card.
