Each Live Baccarat game can accommodate a maximum of 7 players around the table. Once you are seated at the table, you can chat to the dealer and the players using the in-game chat window. When it comes to placing a bet, the integrated betting software is meshed into the video feed, which means you can simply click or tap on the virtual chips and place them on the marked betting areas on the table.
There are 2 main versions of live Baccarat to choose from at Lucky Nugget Casino. The first is Live Baccarat Squeeze. Based on the classic game of Punto Banco, the game is all about squeezing out the maximum amount of tension from each round. In this version, the cards are dealt face down and slowly revealed throughout the round. Each card is lifted slightly to give you just a glimpse of what it might be before the final reveal. This is the ideal game for players who like to draw out the tension and play fewer rounds per hour.
The other exciting version of Punto Banco Baccarat that you can play at Lucky Nugget Casino is Live Speed Baccarat.
As opposed to the Baccarat Squeeze where the aim is to extend the suspense, in Speed Baccarat, the aim is to complete each round as fast as possible. While the average Baccarat round lasts between 46 seconds to 1 minute, in Speed Baccarat, the entire round lasts just 27 seconds from the start of the deal, to the final reveal. This is achieved by dealing all the cards face up and shortening the betting time.
Whether you choose to play Speed Baccarat or Baccarat Squeeze, the game itself remains essentially the same.
At the start of each round, you have the option of placing a bet on the Banker hand, the Player hand or on a tie. With these games, you also have the option of placing a full range of side bets. Side bets are placed at the start of the round and act independently from the main game. Even if your original bet is not a winner, your side bet can still pay out.
