Benefits of Bitcoin Live Baccarat

Bitcoin Live Baccarat combines the thrill of live online gaming with the unique benefits of using Bitcoin and other cryptos as a transaction method, such as:

  • Anonymity and Privacy: Bitcoin transactions are pseudonymous. This means that you can enjoy your games without disclosing your personal details, providing an extra level of privacy and security.
  • Low Transaction Fees: Unlike traditional financial systems, Bitcoin transaction costs are usually lower. This allows you to maximize your winnings in Live Baccarat games as you won't lose a significant part of your winnings to fees.
  • Fast Transactions: Bitcoin transactions can be processed much faster than traditional banking systems, especially for international transfers. This allows for quicker deposits and withdrawals when you're playing Live Baccarat.
  • Potential Appreciation of Value: If you keep your winnings in crypto and the value of said crypto increases, your winnings could increase in value too. However, it's important to note that the value of Bitcoin can also decrease, so this comes with its own set of risks.

How Crypto Live Baccarat Is Played

OK, you’ve followed the steps above and you’re now part of the BigWins Casino community. That’s a good start. It’s now time to play the best crypto live baccarat available online. But, before that, remember - it's smart to know the aim of the game and the rules.

The aim of baccarat is to choose which hand will win in a showdown:

  • The Player hand wins,

  • The Banker hand wins,

  • Both hands tie.

The winner is the hand closest to 9. Totals are made using two or more cards. Each card has the following value:

  • Picture cards and 10s are worth 0 points,

  • Aces are worth 1 point,

  • All other cards are worth their face value.

The best total is 9 but a score of 8 can also win. Any total over 9 is subject to a special cancellation rule. Specifically, a score of 10 or more cancels out the number on the left. For example, 13 becomes 3 because you remove the 1. Eventually, the hand with a score closest to 9 wins.

In this regard, live baccarat is like live Bitcoin blackjack. However, instead of controlling one of the hands, you take a backseat and watch. The dealer handles the cards and you’re simply betting on the hand you believe will win.

Live Baccarat Drawing Rules

Each hand starts with two cards. If either one of the hands has a score of 8 or 9, they win. If both hands have 8 or 9, the round is declared a draw. If neither hand has a two-card score of 8 or 9, then they receive a third card. However, unlike blackjack where you can draw cards at will, in live baccarat, the Player and the Banker will only receive a third card under certain conditions.

Those conditions are:

When Does the Player Hand Draw a Card?

  • They have a score between 0 and 5 (unless the Banker has 8 or 9).

  • If the player has a 6 or 7, they don’t draw a card.

When Does the Banker Hand Draw a Card?

  • They have a score between 0 and 2 and the player doesn’t have a score of 8 or 9.

  • They have a score of 3 and the player doesn’t have a score of 9. However, the Banker doesn’t draw if the player has a score of 8.

  • They have a score of 4 and the player’s third card is worth 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. However, the Banker doesn’t draw if the player’s third card is worth 0, 1, 8, or 9.

  • They have a score of 5 and the player’s third card is worth 4, 5, 6, 7. However, the Banker doesn’t draw if the player’s third card is worth 0, 1, 2, 3, 8, or 9.

  • They have a score of 6 and the player’s third card is worth 6 or 7. However, the Banker doesn’t draw if the player’s third card is worth 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, or 9.

  • The banker doesn’t draw with a score of 7.

The winner is determined once all of the cards have been dealt. Player and Banker bets pay 1:1 (i.e. 1X your stake). A tie pays 8:1 (i.e. 8X your stake). The only other live baccarat rule to note is that winning Banker bets incur a 5% commission charge.  

Best Strategy for Live Dealer Baccarat Games

Even though crypto live baccarat is a simple game of chance, there are still ways to increase your chances of winning by using strategies to maximize your deposits and way of placing bets. Here are a few tips to do just that:

  • Leverage the Martingale Strategy

The Martingale betting strategy is widely used not only for live crypto baccarat but can be applied to any casino game in the world. The premise is simple - double your bet after every loss and cut it in half after every win.

  • Bet Sensibly

The best live dealer baccarat strategy is to bet sensibly. The point here is that bankroll management allows you to stay in the game for as long as possible. When you can do this, you give yourself a better chance of being active when the cards go in your favour.

  • Leverage the BigWins Casino Bonuses

One of the benefits introduced by live casino bonuses for players includes reducing the house advantage. If you use one of the BigWins casino bonuses, like our 100% welcome bonus wisely, you could come out with a real gain.

  • Avoid Tie Bets and Bet on the Banker

The lucrative 8:1 payout of the tie bet seems great, but it is high for a reason - it doesn't occur often. Therefore, it's much smarter to bet on the Banker, because even though it pays less, they have a stronger position because they have more options when it comes to the Player's third card.

Our Favorite Live Bitcoin Baccarat Games

What are the best live dealer baccarat games at BigWins Casino? We’ve got plenty of hits but the following live baccarat games get our users hyped up:

Lightning Baccarat

Lightning Baccarat takes the standard live baccarat format and adds prize multipliers to the mix. A random selection of cards is struck by lightning before they’re dealt. These bolts of lightning add prize multipliers worth between 2X and 8X to each card. If one or more of these cards are part of a winning hand, the multipliers increase your payout. If multiple lightning cards are part of the hand, you win prizes worth up to 512X (Player and Banker bet) and 262,144X (a Tie bet).

No Commission Baccarat

No Commission Baccarat doesn’t charge a 5% commission on winning Banker bets. That’s a positive because we know this is the best bet you can make in terms of having the lowest house edge. Scrapping the 5% commission means that the payout when the Banker wins with a score of 6 points is reduced.  

Speed Baccarat

Speed Baccarat reduces the time between betting rounds so you can play more hands per hour. Therefore, if you want more action in less time, live speed baccarat is ideal.
