An elegant classic, Baccarat exudes simple sophistication. The game has been a casino floor staple since it was first introduced to the elegant gambling rooms of France in the 1400’s. It is said to be based on an ancient Etruscan ritual, whereby the roll of the dice would decide a blonde virgin goddess’ fate! Although the game now uses cards, its rich origins make it all more alluring.
Over the years, Baccarat has only become more popular, making it the perfect game for our Live Dealer tables. Powered by Evolution Gaming, you will be hard pressed to find a more authentic Baccarat experience online than at Vegas Palms New Zealand Casino.

Baccara, as it is known in Italian, evokes images of high rollers playing a game reserved for a select few. The game of Baccarat is based purely on luck and therefor it is a game of pure indulgence. Our Live Dealer Baccarat is no exception, and winning can be an indulgent affair if you are prepared to challenge Lady Luck. Fortunately, anyone can play, and you don’t need a big budget to win big - we cater for all sized bankrolls - so everyone can join in the fun!
At our live Baccarat tables you are not betting against the house; the two hands that are dealt are the Player and the Banker in name only, and you may test your luck by betting on either, or betting on a Tie.
As you start to understand your bet options some of the mystery dissipates, but just enough for you to enjoy the game.
There are three bets you can place, namely:
The dealer will deal the Player and the Banker hands 2 cards each, the winning hand will have a value of 9, or closer to 9 than the other. To calculate the value of the hand, the 2 cards dealt are added together however, the maximum value a hand can be is 9, therefor if the total value is higher than 9 only the last digit is used. Face cards such as the Jack, Queen and King as well as a 10 are all counted as 0, Aces are counted as 1 and number cards carry the equivalent value. At Vegas Palms New Zealand Casino our Live Dealer tables payout 1:1 if you predict the correct winner, and a generous 8:1 if you correctly predict a tie.
