Online Baccarat

Baccarat is one of the classiest online casino games you can find. It’s the favoured game of James Bond, and is associated with illustrious locations like Monte Carlo and Macao.

Its reputation is aided by the fact that the game’s origins are shrouded in mystery. Some say it was invented in the 19th Century, while others date it back to French and Italians returning home with the game more than 500 years ago. Still others say that sailors brought the game to Europe from Asia in the 17th Century.

Regardless of its origins, playing baccarat has a rich history in Europe’s casinos. Today it remains one of the most popular card games, and is synonymous with the real casino experience.

Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat is a relatively simple game, which has helped to make it so popular. There is a ‘player’ and a ‘banker’ (or ‘dealer’), and the game entails the two participants comparing their hands.

This means that there are (depending on the variant of online baccarat you’re playing), usually three possible outcomes: ‘player’, ‘banker’ and ‘tie’. ‘Player’ means that the player has won the hand, while ‘banker’ means the banker has won the hand.

In baccarat, cards have a points value. Cards two through to nine are valued on the number of their card. So, an eight of diamonds is worth eight, and so on. Meanwhile, tens, jacks, queens and kings are worth nothing, and an ace is worth one point.

A hand’s value is not necessarily determined by the sum total of the points are card is worth. Rather, the right-hand digit of the total is what is used. So, if your hand totals 14 (for example, from two sevens), the actual value of your hand is four. This means that the highest score you can achieve in baccarat is a nine.

 

How to start playing Baccarat

To start the game, the player and the banker are dealt two cards each. If the player has a total of 0-5, he is dealt another card. If they have 6-7, they stand.

If either the player or banker starts with a ‘natural’, i.e. a total of 8 or 9, then the result is announced, with a player win, banker win or tie.

If the player has taken a third card or stuck with two, the banker then will then take a turn. If the player stood, then the banker follows the same drawing rules as the player. If the player has three cards, there are a more complex drawing rules for the banker.
