Baccarat is a game that dates back to 19th century France. The game requires no skill to play because all you have to do is to decide what you will bet. The game is played following strict predetermined rules and there is nothing much you can do once you place a bet. The objective of the game is to get a hand that is closer to 9. For this purpose, the cards have slightly different values. Aces are valued at 1, cards from 2 through 9 have their face value and 10s and face cards are valued at 0.
There are three possible outcomes, thus three possible bets you can place. You can bet that your hand will win, that the banker hand will win, or that both hands will end in a tie.
The tie bet offers the highest payout of 8 to 1, and some variants offer a payout of 9 to 1. Even though this bet offers the highest payout, you should avoid it because the chances of hitting this bet are way low.
In some cases, it is possible for the player and the banker to receive a third card. The rules for the player are way simpler and they are as follows:
The rules for the banker are slightly more difficult, but the good news is you don’t have to know them to have a successful round. If you want to know what is going on in front of you, here are the rules for the banker:
When the banker’s first two cards total 3, the banker will draw another card if the player’s third card is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, or 10, and they will stand if the player’s third card is 8.
When the banker’s first two cards total 4, the banker will draw another card if the player’s third card is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7, and they will stand if the player’s third card is 1, 8, 9, or 10.
When the banker’s first two cards total 5, the banker will draw another card if the player’s third card is 4, 5, 6, or 7, and they will stand if the player’s third card is 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, or 10.
When the banker’s first two cards total 6, the banker will draw another card if the player’s third card is 6, or 7, and they will stand if the player’s third card is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, or 10.
When the banker’s first two cards total 7, they will stand.
When the banker’s first two cards total 8 or 9, they have a natural hand and they win the round.
Blackjack is another game that you can play live at National Casino, live-streamed from professional studios. There are many types of Blackjack available here and among them, you can find the following:
Blackjack is a game with simple rules that are easy to remember, and this is one of the major reasons for this game’s popularity. The game is played on a semi-circular table sitting up to 7 players when you play in a land-based casino. The object of the game is to get a hand that totals closer to 21, higher than the dealer's, and not going over 21. You play only against the dealer and not against the other players, and there are two ways you can win. You can have a card total greater than that of the dealer’s, or you can win by default, meaning the dealer busts.
When you play in a land-based casino, there are two versions of Blackjack in most cases. The first one is Double Deck 21, where the cards are dealt from the hand, and the other one is Multiple Deck 21, where the cards are dealt from a box.
Each Blackjack table has a bet limit which is clearly shown, so you have to place bets within those limits. Once you place your bet, you will receive two cards face-up, and you will have to decide what your next move should be. The best hand you can get is a combination of an Ace and a 10 value card. This is an automatic Blackjack, and if you get this hand you are the winner for the round.
The cards have slightly different values for the game though. Aces are valued at 1 or 11, whichever is better for you, cards from 2 through 10 have their face value, and face cards are valued at 10.
You have a couple of options available to improve your hand and they are the following ones:
You can stand – when you stand, the idea is to stay with your original hand, and not receive any additional cards.
You can hit – this is an option that will allow you to take another card, which will hopefully help improve your hand. You can hit as many times as you believe it is necessary.
You can split – when you receive two cards with the same value, you have the option to split your hand and play it as two separate hands. When you do this, you will have to place a second wager, equal to your original one.
You can double down – when you have a good hand that can be much improved with only one additional card, you can double down. When you do this you will have to place another wager, and the dealer will deal one additional card to you.
You can ‘push’ – when you and the dealer have the same total value of all cards, the hand ends in a push. You neither win nor lose when this happens. You can get your wager back, or leave it for the following round.
You can buy insurance – when the dealer’s up card is an ace, there is a great chance that the dealer's down card is a 10-value card. In this case, you can buy insurance, which is a side bet where you place a wager that the dealer has a blackjack. If the dealer has a blackjack you will receive a payout for the insurance bet, but lose your original bet.
You can surrender – you have the option to surrender one-half of your original wager after receiving your first two cards. If you surrender, the dealer will take half of your stake.
Live roulette at National Casino offers an exquisite experience with over 100 different games at disposal. If you have your favorite variant you can find it here and play it, and if you don’t then you can explore one of the following roulette games:
Before you decide to play for real money, you need to learn at least the basic rules of the game. At first look, roulette might seem like a confusing game but it is not. The game has two sections, the wheel, and the table. The table is where you place your wagers, and it has an 'inside section' and 'outside section'. You can place many different bets here. Once you place your bet, the dealer will drop the white ball on the spinning wheel.
The European version of roulette has 37 pockets on the wheel, with numbers from 1 through 36 and a single zero. The American version of the game has 38 pockets on the wheel, with numbers from 1 through 36, and a single zero and a double zero.
It is very important to distinguish the different bets you can place when you play roulette. You can go to any table and just place all your chips on a number and hope to win, after all, this is a game of luck and you can never know when luck will strike you. But, on the other hand, roulette is a game that you can play strategically as well. You can decide what your move should be based on the game you want to play. You can go for a more challenging game, or for a more steady game where you can win some and lose some, thus prolonging your gameplay.
All the bets in roulette are divided into two main categories, inside and outside bets.
Inside bets are bets on single numbers or a smaller group of numbers. These bets offer great payouts compared to other bets, but the chances of winning these bets are way smaller. If you want a more challenging game then this is the way you should go. These are all the inside bets you can place, no matter which version of roulette you choose to play:
A straight-up bet is a bet on a single number that offers the highest payout.
A split bet is a bet on two numbers that are adjacent to the table.
A street bet is a bet on three numbers that are adjacent to the table.
A corner bet is a bet on four numbers that form a square on the table.
Line bet is a bet on six numbers or two streets.
Outside bets, on the other hand, offer more chances of winning but the payouts are not as impressive as with the inside bets. If you want to prolong your gameplay, then these are the bets for you.
A bet on color is a bet that you place that the ball will land on the either black or red pocket, no matter the number.
A bet on an odd or even number is a bet that you place that the ball will land on either an odd or an even number.
A bet on all low numbers or all high numbers is a bet that the ball will land on either low number, from 1 through 18, or on a high number, from 19 through 36.
A dozen bet is a bet on the 1st 12 numbers, 2nd 12 numbers, or on 3rd 12 numbers.
A column bet is a bet again on 12 numbers, but these numbers are not in numerical order, instead, they are the numbers that are placed in columns on the table.
