Live baccarat rules


Baccarat is a thrilling game played at major casinos all over the world. The Player's objective is to wager on his prediction that either the Player's hand will win, the Banker's hand will win, or that the game will result in a Tie.


The aim of baccarat is to predict if the Player or the Banker's hand will get a point value closest to 9, keeping in mind that all ten-value cards count as zero and Aces count as one. The hand with the highest point value wins. The highest total any baccarat hand can have is nine. A two-card total of nine is called a "natural" and cannot lose. An eight is the second-best hand and is also called a "natural". If both the Player and Banker are dealt identical hands, it's a standoff (a Tie) and neither the Banker nor the Player hand wins. You do not receive any cards, or play against anyone but to predict which hand will beat the other. Please note, the Player (you) can bet on the Player, Banker or a Tie. The Player and the Banker are each dealt a two-card hand. Following standard baccarat rules, a third card is dealt to the Player and/or the Banker.

Hand Values

Ace = One point
Face cards and tens = Zero
All other cards carry the point value stated on the card. If the cards in a hand total more than ten points, simply subtract ten; the remainder is the baccarat point value of the hand. For example: 8+8=16, which counts as a 6 in baccarat; and a Jack+7=17, which counts as 7.

Third Card Rules

The following baccarat rule chart governs when the Player and/or the Banker will automatically be dealt (i.e. "draws") a third card in the Baccarat game: If the point value of the first two cards is 8 or 9, this is called a Natural. If anyone is dealt a Natural the game ends and no third card is dealt to anyone.

Live Dragon Tiger rules


Dragon Tiger is loosely based on the game of Baccarat. The objective is for the player to guess whether the Dragon side or the Tiger side will draw a higher valued card (Ace being lowest and King being highest).


The aim of Dragon Tiger is to predict if the Dragon card or Tiger card will be higher in card rank. In rank of the card is determined by Ace being the lowest card followed by Two, then Three and so on up to the King. If both the Dragon and the Tiger have the same rank of card, then the result is a Tie.

Special Bets

Players can also place bets on the card that will be dealt for the side that they choose. Players can choose to bet on the suit, value or color of the card with payouts specified in section below. All special bets automatically lose if the 7 card is drawn on side the of the player bet, no matter the result of the game. In the case of a Tie result where the card is not a 7, then these bets are refunded.


Winning Wager Payout
Dragon (50% commission charged if result is Tie) 1-1
Tiger (50% commission charged if result is Tie) 1-1
Tie 8-1
Suit (this bet is refunded on Tie results but loses on any 7 card drawn) 3-1
Big/Small (this bet is refunded on Tie results but loses on any 7 card drawn) 1-1
Odd/Even (this bet is refunded on Tie results but loses on any 7 card drawn) 1-1
