Live Speed Baccarat Rules
Speed baccarat doesn't deviate by much from the standard version. The same basic rules are utilized within the game.
The game utilizes eight decks of 52 cards. For the card values, aces are worth 1, face cards 0, 10s are worth 0, while cards between 2 and 9 are taken at their numerical value. Each shoe is dealt until the appearance of the cut card. At this stage, the shoe can be swapped, or the cards reshuffled.
Similar to other Baccarat games, the speed variant offers three regular bets, the Banker, Player, and Tie.
A wager on the banker's hand pays out even money. However, adjustments are made to accommodate the house edge. This translates to a 5% commission cut from each win.
The payouts are even.
A tie occurs if the player and banker have the same hand value. This bet pays 8:1.
Although rounds are often fast, side bets can still be placed. Some of the popular side bets in Live Speed Baccarat include the following.
This bet is a prediction of whether the player or banker will land a pair. Wins are paid 5:1.
Perfect Pair (One)
This wager is based on whether the two cards dealt to the player or the banker are of identical value or suit. The pay is set at 25:1.
Perfect Pair (Two)
This wager is won if both cards (two) dealt to the banker and player are identical in rank and value. The payout is an alluring 200:1.
