The Live Baccarat and Craps games are among the best in the business, so let’s have a look at how they work and what they can offer.
Why live baccarat and craps at Virgin?
There are many good UK casinos offering Live games? However, the Virgin Games is the name and the bold red and white livery of the Virgin brand have been synonymous with fun and quality for decades now, across records, transatlantic flights and high-speed trains and Virgin Games continues that tradition (since 2003) with its high-quality and exciting online casino. With bonuses and promotions galore and a superb range of slots, live casino games and Bingo rooms, Virgin Live Casino Games is one of the most respected and sought-after online venues in the UK.
Highly popular across the casino world, particularly in Macau and the Far East, Baccarat has a legendary status among punters. Not least because it happens to be the game of choice for a certain James Bond. Indeed, the first glimpse we ever got of the super spy was watching him draw cards from the Baccarat shoe, ever so suavely!
At the Virgin Games Live Baccarat game, you can play at up to 4 tables at once, all on one browser. The game is run and hosted by a real-life croupier, giving you all the thrills and authenticity of an actual casino. There is also a live game Chat Box, so you can ask any questions you want or just shoot the breeze with the dealer! In this game, 8 decks of 52 cards are used.
What are the Live Baccarat rules?
Each hand sees 2 cards dealt to the Player (you) and 2 cards dealt to the Banker. The winning hand is the one closest to 9 when the cards are added together. Once you go beyond 9 the counter resets to 0 and the count starts again. So, a 6 and 7 on one hand has a value of 3, not 13. Easy! A third card is dealt only if there is a tie between the hands, an eventuality that you can actually bet on at a tasty 8/1.
Bets must be placed before the cards are dealt and the dealer will announce “no more bets” every time, so you know exactly where you stand.
As well as betting on which hand will win, you can also place a “Pairs” side bet. This will pay out at 11/1 if the first two cards drawn on either hand are the same number or picture.
That’s it! It only takes only a minute or two to understand but can provide hours of enjoyment.
It is commonly said these days that Dice games are one of the hottest properties at online casinos and the Live Craps at Virgin Games is a sparkling example of that.
What are the Live Craps rules?
The dream in Craps is to roll a 7 or 11 with 2 dice. Place your bets on the Pass Line prior to the roll. Land a 7 or 11 and that pays out as an Even money winner straight away. If you roll a 2,3 or 12, that is an immediate loser. ANY other number and your bet remains in play and the game moves onto stage two.
The number rolled, say it was a 5, now becomes the new target or “Point”. Play then continues until you hit the Point number (5) and win, OR a 7 is rolled and the house then wins. In addition to your original bet, you can also place supplementary bets once the Point stage is reached. Great fun and easy to get the hang of. There are more complicated wagers available to you once you get more acquainted with the game, but you can discover those when you are more comfortable.
One of the most impressive things about Live Craps at Virgin Games is the generous Return to Player percentage (RTP) for all wagers; a whopping 99.17%. So, for every £100 you wager on the game, you can, on average, expect £99.17 back.
As well as Craps Live, Virgin Games also offers a Video Craps game which retains all the thrills of the Live game but without an interactive dealer and First Person Craps, also a video game that this time has sole focus on the board below, as if you were standing there, looking down.
So, pick the one you fancy or try them all! Discover why Craps has become one of the trendiest and “on point” games in the UK online casino world.
