Evolution Baccarat

Developed in Europe and enhanced in Asia, Baccarat is a classic card game that pits two hands, namely the Player and the Banker, against each other. Live casino NZ players can immerse themselves in the suspense, the thrill, and the entertainment of premium-quality Evolution Baccarat at JackpotCity Casino, where friendly, professional dealers are waiting to welcome them to tables based in luxe studios via live streaming. Bet on a hand to win and see how the cards fall when playing on desktop computers and mobile devices.

The Rules of Evolution Baccarat

The different Evolution Baccarat games follow the same basic rules, although players will find a few important differences in high-low-style games from the provider. Start learning how to play Baccarat at our live casino by taking a look at the game rules:

  • Live dealer Baccarat games are played with 8 decks, each containing 52 standard playing cards.
  • Card values: Aces are worth 1 point, cards 2-9 are worth their face value, and 10s, Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 0 points.
  • The goal is for players to predict whether the Player or the Banker hand will win with a score of 9 points or as close to this number as possible without exceeding it.
  • Players can place Player, Banker, and Tie bets in most games, while some games also offer a Suited Tie option.
  • Some live dealer Baccarat games also offer side bets.
  • 5% commission is charged on Banker bet wins.
  • Bet payouts: Player wins pay 1:1, Banker wins pay 0.95:1, Tie pays 8:1.
  • Most Evolution Baccarat games offer a selection of side bets.
  • 2 cards are dealt to each hand on the live casino Baccarat table.
  • Live dealer Baccarat players cannot decide whether to Hit or Stand, as those moves are determined by the initial scores and various game rules.
  • The dealer plays through any moves required by the rules before revealing the final scores and the winner.

Baccarat NZ players can use various strategies when enjoying Evolution Baccarat games at our live casino. These strategies can range from those that are specific to live dealer Baccarat, such as placing Banker bets rather than Player or Tie bets, to general strategies such as setting personal win/loss limits as well as a time limit on gaming sessions.

Live casino players in New Zealand can also choose from variations powered by Evolution and other providers, such as Dragon Tiger Pragmatic Play.

Expert Tips on Wagering and Game Functions

Thanks to side bets and other features, Kiwi players can use betting expert techniques when they play Evolution Baccarat at JackpotCity Casino. Many of the provider’s games offer side bets such as:

  • Perfect Pairs: This side bet wins when the first 2 cards dealt to the Player or the Banker form a perfect pair (same value and same suit).
  • Either Pair: This side bet wins when the first 2 cards dealt to the Player or the Banker form a pair (same value or suit).
  • Super 6: This side bet wins if the Banker wins with a score of 6.
  • Player Bonus: This side bet wins when the Player wins with a natural 8 or 9 or by at least 4 points.
  • Banker Bonus: This live dealer Baccarat bet wins when the Banker wins with a natural 8 or 9 or by at least 4 points.

In addition to placing side bets, players can toggle between Commission and No Commission mode, which removes the 5% commission charged on Banker wins and offers a unique side bet. Players can also access classic live dealer Baccarat roadmaps that display the results of previous rounds in various formats. The roadmaps available in Evolution Baccarat games include Big Road, Bead Road, Big Eye Road, Small Road, and Cockroach Road.

Players in New Zealand can also access a range of live casino functions via the toolbar at the top of the screen. They’ll find buttons to access in-game support in languages such as Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish, more live casino games, a live chat feature to interact with dealers and other players, volume/sound settings, and screen mode.
