Fading/ Fade Out : It simply means, to place bets.

La Grande / Of course 'Grande' means huge or something big. One huge value in Baccarat is '9' so La Grande: suits this form amicably.

Bat / Palette. In old days, wooden bats were used so that the dealer could reach out to players sitting it the far ends. These bats or palettes are still common in live casinos. You don't need to worry about them in online casinos even while you are sitting thousands of miles apart! The E-palette is kind of huge.
