Handy Tips for Live Baccarat

If you want to try live baccarat for yourself for the first time, then our helpful top tips will help you avoid some rookie errors.

Employ a Betting System

Betting systems such as Martingale, Paroli, and the 1-3-2-6 system are all popular with live baccarat players. You can learn more about the most popular betting systems in the list on our online baccarat page. Betting systems can be helpful for players as a way to best utilise their bankroll, and as a guide for suggested statistically optimal decisions. It is worth noting, however, that betting systems will not guarantee wins and will not make winning a higher chance since the house will always have the edge. Lastly, players should never attempt to recoup losses by betting more, as outcomes depend solely on luck.

Understand the Game

Use guides such as this page to learn the baccarat basics. You can also join any of the live baccarat games at Prime Casino and watch a few rounds. This can be a great way of learning the ins and outs of gameplay without wagering your money. You can also use the live chat function to ask the dealer any questions you might have.

Responsible Gaming is Key

Live Blackjack

Live Blackjack

Live blackjack is similar to live baccarat but instead of achieving a hand with the highest overall total value, in blackjack, you aim to make the total of your hand as close to or exactly 21 in value.

Live Roulette

Live Roulette

Live roulette is a staple of any online live casino. As a simple guessing game where players need to correctly predict the position in which the ball will stop, roulette is a game that is accessible to players of all skill and experience levels. Will you spin a winner? Try live roulette for yourself.

Live Poker

Live Poker

Just like other live casino games, you get to play live poker against other real players to see if you can draw the winning hand (or bluff well enough that your opponents think you do). There are many variants of live poker to try, including community poker, stud poker, and draw poker. Discover the world of live poker.

Game Shows
