Baccarat is one of the oldest and most loved casino games because it is fast paced and very easy to learn. We’re also of the mentality that if it’s cool enough for James Bond, then it’s cool enough for us.
The aim of Baccarat is to correctly predict whether the banker or player will accumulate a point total closest to 9. As always a correct prediction will result in a win, but an incorrect one will mean a loss of that hands stake.
How to Play Baccarat
The first task is setting a bet, which is just like in a land based casino because you simply need to choose a chip (or series of chips) from the stack in the bottom right hand corner. You will need to choose either the banker or player, you cannot select both to bet on.
After pressing deal two cards will be dealt to the player and two cards will be dealt to the banker. At this point the total number of points are shown beneath each hand. The winner will be whoever is closest to 9. If a ‘natural’ win doesn’t occur a third card may be issued to the banker and player to determine which one takes home the win. A tie results in a 8:1 return, which is generous but less than some Baccarat games.
