The Baccarat 101 – How to Play

Right, let’s dive into the how-to of online baccarat games, making sure you’re clued up and ready to hit the ground running. If you’re new to the game, no worries – we’re here to guide you through the basics in true Springbok Casino style, making it easy peasy to get started.

First off, the goal of baccarat is simple – you’re betting on which hand, the Player’s or the Banker’s, will get closest to 9. You can also bet on the hands being a tie, but let’s keep it straightforward for now.

Each card has a point value: cards 2 through 9 are worth their face value in points, tens, jacks, queens, and kings are worth zero, and aces are worth a single point.

Here’s how a typical round unfolds when you play online baccarat at Springbok Casino:

  1. Place Your Bets: Before the cards are dealt, you decide whether to bet on the Player’s hand, the Banker’s hand, or a tie. Remember, betting on the Banker’s hand has a slight edge, but hey, sometimes you’ve got to follow your gut.
  2. The Dealing: Two cards are dealt to both the Player and the Banker. If either hand totals 8 or 9, it’s called a ‘natural’, and no more cards are dealt. If it’s not a natural, then the game might move to the next step.
  3. The Third Card Rule: This might sound a bit tricky, but it’s all part of the fun. Whether the Player or Banker gets a third card depends on their initial cards’ total. Don’t stress, though. Our online game takes care of this automatically, so you can sit back and enjoy the suspense!
  4. The Outcome: The hand closest to 9 wins. If you’ve placed your bet on the winning hand, you’re in for a win. Payouts are straightforward: betting on the Player gives you a 1:1 payout, the Banker also pays 1:1 (minus a 5% commission), and a tie usually pays out at 8:1.

Now, that might seem like a lot to take in if you’ve never played online baccarat games before, but once you’re in the game, it will make sense in no time!

Is Baccarat Based on Luck or Strategy?

Let’s settle a burning question that’s probably been tickling your mind: is playing and winning in online baccarat games more about stroking Lady Luck or having a master plan?

Luck: The Heart of the Game

We won’t beat around the bush. Baccarat leans heavily on luck. You place your bets – player, banker, or a daring wager on a tie – and then let the cards do their thing. This sprinkle of unpredictability is what makes online baccarat games such a jol.

A Pinch of Strategy

That said, there’s more to it... While you can’t dictate the cards’ flow, there’s room for some clever moves on where to place those bets. The savvy baccarat enthusiast might lean towards betting on the banker more often, given the slight statistical edge. It’s these small, strategic plays that slight edge and a hint of control.


Mixing It Up

So, what is the lowdown? Online baccarat games offer the best of both worlds – a fun mix of luck with a (little) dash of strategy. At Springbok Casino, baccarat is all about embracing this balance.
