Playing some of your favorite games live is the ultimate experience you can have at Codere Casino. The games are streamed live from a studio, so while you play you can interact with the dealer and have an experience that is close to playing at a land-based casino.
Live Baccarat games are powered by Evolution Gaming, the best software provider when it comes to Live Casino games. You can find many different variants of the game. And before you decide to play for real money, it is a good idea to learn the rules of the game. The good news is that once you learn the basic rules, you can adapt to any variation of Baccarat.
The game is usually played with a couple of decks of cards, and this will depend on the variant you choose to play. The suits of cards are irrelevant and the values of the cards are slightly changed for the game. Face cards and 10s count as zero, aces count as 1, and cards from 2 through 9 have their face value.
The objective of the game is to get a hand that is closer to 9. So, when you receive two cards that add up to a two-digit number, then the first digit is removed and the second digit shows the value of the card.
Before the game starts, you need to place a bet. There are three options available, a bet on the Player, a bet on the Banker and a bet on a Tie. Statistically speaking, the bet on the Banker will win more often than any other bet. For that reason, the casino charges a 5% commission on this bet. The tie bet is the one that is the most appealing to players because it offers the highest payout. Truth be told, this bet will rarely happen so even though it offers the highest payout we suggest you avoid it, especially if you are a beginner.
The dealer will then deal two cards to you, and two cards to themselves. If you are lucky enough to receive two cards that add up to 8 or 9, then you are the winner of the round because you have a Natural Baccarat. The same rules for the dealer too. If no one has natural baccarat the round continues. The player is the first to finish its hand. The game of baccarat is played according to pre-determined rules so there is nothing much you can do once you place your bet. If you have a hand that totals 6 or more, you will stand, and if your hand totals 5 or less you will receive a third card.
The rules for the banker are slightly more different and they will depend on how the player finished the round. If the banker has a hand that totals 7 or more, they will stand. If the banker's first two cards total 0, 1, or 2, they will draw a third card.
When the banker's two cards total 3, they will stand if the player's third card is an 8, and they will draw if the player's third card is 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9.
When the banker's two cards total 4, they will stand if the player's third card is an0, 1, 8, or 9, and they will draw if the player's third card is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.
When the banker's two cards total 5, they will stand if the player's third card is an 0, 1, 2, 3, 8, or 9, and they will draw if the player's third card is 4, 5, 6, 7.
When the banker's two cards total 6, they will stand if the player's third card is a 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, or 9, and they will draw if the player's third card is 6, 7.
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games you can play at Codere. The main aim of the game is to create a hand that totals closer to 21, higher than the banker's hand but without going over.
But, before you decide to play for real money it is a good idea to go over the basic rules first.
Blackjack is usually played with one deck of cards, but in some cases, the game is played with several decks of cards. Aces are worth either 1 or 11, face cards are worth 10, and cards from 2 through 10 have their face value.
Once you place your bet, the dealer will deal one card to you and one card to themselves. Both the cards will be face up. Another round of cards is then dealt, your card will be again face up, but the dealer will receive its card face down.
If your initial two cards add up to 21, this is known as Natural Blackjack and you are the winner of the round unless the dealer has the same hand, then the game ends in a push.
If no one has a natural blackjack, then the game continues. The player is the first to finish the round, so once you see your cards and the dealer's upcard, you have to decide on what your next move should be.
You can hit and ask for another card, and you can ask for as many cards as you believe it is necessary.
You can stand, and decide not to take any additional cards.
If you have a good hand and you believe that one additional card can bring you a win, you can double down. To do this, you will have to place an additional bet, not higher than your initial bet and you will receive one more card from the dealer.
If the two cards you receive are of the same value, you can split your cards and play them as two separate hands. To do this, you will have to place an additional bet equal to your initial bet.
Some casinos will allow you to surrender if you are likely to lose your hand. You will receive half your bet back.
When the dealer's upcard is an ace, then you can buy insurance which is a side bet that the dealer has a Blackjack. If someone places the insurance bet, the dealer will check their down-card and if they do have a blackjack you will receive a payment, but lose your original bet.
The dealer doesn't have the same options as the player. They can only hit or stand. If the dealer has a hand that totals 16 or less, he must hit. If the dealer has a hand that totals 18 or more, they will stand.
Doubling down can lead to making twice as much profit, so it is a good move in Blackjack. So, you need to determine when to double down. This is a great move, especially when the dealer has a weak up-card, between 2 and 6. We want to point out that you need to learn the game so you can get a better feel of what to do in a certain situation.
Roulette is an easy game you can learn to play. The idea of the game is to place a bet to predict on what number the white ball will land.
Before the game starts, you can place a bet on the roulette table. You can place as many bets as you like. Once the bets have been placed, the croupier will place the white ball on the rim of the roulette, and once the ball drops into a pocket, the croupier will announce the winning number and mark it on the table.
Two different wheels are used when it comes to roulette and they are very similar to each other. The American roulette wheel has numbers from 1 through 36, and a single zero, and a double zero. The European wheel has numbers from 1 through 36 and a single zero only.
The betting options are mostly the same on both wheels. The extra zero in American roulette makes the house edge higher, so we suggest you avoid this wheel at least if you are a beginner.
All bets in roulette are broken down into two basic categories, inside bets, and outside bets.
Inside bets are riskier and offer a higher payout, while the outside bets give you a better chance of winning but the payouts are way lower.
These are all the inside bets you can place:
