  1. Punto Banco: This popular version of online baccarat lets you bet on the Player's or Banker's hand, with strict drawing rules determining outcomes. It provides a rules base for all other online baccarat games.
  2. European Baccarat: Commonly found in European casinos, this online baccarat game is similar to traditional baccarat but with slightly different drawing rules, allowing you to stand or to draw another card if your hand value is five.
  3. Mini Baccarat: This scaled-down version of traditional online casino baccarat offers lower betting limits and simplified rules, making it a good choice for beginners and casual players.
  4. No Commission Baccarat: This online baccarat variation does not let you pay the standard 5% commission on Banker wins, but winning Banker bets in turn also pay less.
  5. Baccarat Banque: In this version of online baccarat one player acts as the Banker and wagers against other players. The Banker's role rotates among participants, allowing for strategic control of the game.
  6. Chemin de Fer: When playing this traditional French variation of online baccarat, players take turns being the Banker. This certainly adds an element of strategy to the game.
  7. Macao: In this online baccarat game players receive 2 or 3 cards and can’t bet on the Banker, only Players’ hands. Exceed a score of 9 and you’re out. This fast-paced variant is popular in Asian casinos.
  8. Dragon Tiger: This simplified online baccarat version lets you bet on whether the Dragon or Tiger hand will have a higher value.
  9. Live Baccarat: This real-time version of the game lets you enjoy baccarat play online against a real, live dealer. As such, wins are determined by real player hands and not Random Number Generators.
