Welcome to Baazi247’s official guide to Baccarat. Here, we will discuss everything you should know about the card game: how to get started, strategies to win the game, where you can play live dealer baccarat online casino games for real money, and more.
Let’s first begin with a short introduction to the game.
Baccarat is one of the most popular online casino games in India. Although it might seem that the game is purely based on luck, that is not entirely true. This game is immensely popular across Indian land casinos and also among Indian live casino lovers across the world.
With the surge in online casinos in India, more and more card game lovers now play this game every day online and try their luck. And most of these players think about how they can improve their chances of winning real money. As leaders in online gambling, we are putting this tutorial to help you enjoy the game on a strategic level.
Online Baccarat and Live Baccarat
Baazi247 features two versions of Baccarat.
The online version of Baccarat is where you play with a computer and not a live dealer. The game makes use of a Random Number Generator (RNG) to deal cards to the players.
Since the cards are chosen at random, and the game is not rigged, your chances of landing the winning cards entirely depend on your luck. Here is what the online Baccarat game looks like:
If playing Baccarat against a computer is not your cup of tea, you can play live Baccarat at Baazi247.
Live dealers in online casinos:
- Makes it easy for players to track every move the dealer makes.
- Gives the feeling of a real land-based casino.
- Makes communication possible via messages.
Our experts suggest all beginners to start their Baccarat journey from the online version rather than the live Baccarat version. This way, you will get a clear picture of the game’s online rules, and you won’t get overwhelmed when you shift to a live version of the game later.

Round of Live Baccarat (Gameplay)
The gameplays given below are two rounds of live Baccarat games.
Here, the game came to an end after just two cards because, on the player side, Ace and 8 cards were dealt which means Player won.
Here, since two cards on both sides are more than 9 points, the first digit of the total is removed. This results in Player to have a higher value, and hence Player wins.

Variations of Baccarat
Classic Baccarat is probably the oldest version of the game. This version has 3 dealers, and it can feature up to 14 players.
On Mini-Baccarat, there is a single dealer. Most of the Baccarat games you see online are the mini Baccarat version.
Chemin de Fer
This is the French version of Baccarat which is played with six decks instead of seven. Players can take turns being bankers in this version of the game.
American Baccarat features up to 14 players with 6-8 decks. Here, you don’t have a choice in getting the third card. The third card is always dealt no matter if you want it or not.
This version is pretty similar to the Chemin de Fer. Instead of players taking turns to become the Banker, one Player assumes the role. One needs 6-8 decks of cards to complete this version of the game.
This Cuban version is similar to the American version.
Players = Punto
Banker = Bunco.
Just like in the American version, players always get a third card.
Furthermore, there are several types of live Baccarat games available on various platforms. Some of the more common ones include:
No Commission Baccarat
Instead of the regular 0.95:1 odds for the Banker win, the No commission Baccarat pays 1:1 or even money for the Banker bet.
Speed Baccarat is a fast-paced version of a regular Baccarat game. It only takes 27 to 30 seconds to complete a round of Speed Baccarat.
Baccarat Controlled Squeeze
If you are familiar with the regular Baccarat Squeeze, you will understand the controlled squeeze in no time. Here, you are the one who squeezes the cards, unlike the regular squeeze where the dealer does it. You can use your touchpad or mouse to squeeze.
Either Pair – 86.29%
Banker Pair – 89.64% (10:1)
Player Pair – 89.64% (10:1)
Banker Bonus – 90.63%
Perfect Pair – 91.95%
Player Bonus – 97.35%
The house Edge is Low.
One of the reasons why people are so fond of Baccarat is that the house game on this card game is low as compared to other casino games. The Banker’s hand features a 1.06% house edge, which results in a massive 50.7%-win chance every round. This is the reason why the casinos take a 5% commission out of these wins.
Moreover, the player bet features a 1.24% house edge. This is not that bad either. Most gambling experts suggest always placing the bet on the Banker’s side.
