Our picks for where to play, and why

Given live baccarat involves no decision making from players after placing their bets, a table can serve a theoretically unlimited number of players. Seat availability (and therefore number of tables offered by a casino) is not really an important consideration vis-à-vis casino choice. What’s more, casinos carrying Evolution’s baccarat tables tend to carry ALL of Evolution’s generic gold baccarat tables…

House rules on these tables are identical across all casinos, with the exceptions of Genting and Grosvenor casinos (UK players accepted only) which offer an elevated (9:1) payout on Tie bets. Before getting too excited about this, a Tie bet paying 9 to 1 is still significantly inferior (in terms of RTP) to the Banker bet so this shouldn’t really be the fact driving your choice.

Grosvenor also offer live baccarat from the Victoria Casino in London…the first of Evolution’s Dual Play Baccarat series.

If varied ambiance and extra dealers to choose from is important to you, William Hill and Genting both carry private/exclusive baccarat tables.

Really, the key difference in live baccarat tables from one Evolution Gaming casino to the next, is table limits. To this end, consult our table limits page to help make your choice.
