Baccarat

This is certainly a game that, although was started way back in the 15th century by an Italian gambler, Felix Falguirein, has become one of the most popular games in land based casinos and online casinos alike in our modern society today.

The game of Baccarat is all about numbers. The whole aim is to get a set of cards in your hand that add up to 9 or as close to 9 as possible. Ace is counted as one, two to nine at face value and ten, Jack, Queen and King have absolutely no value at all.

There are always only two players at any Baccarat table - the banker and the player. Players around the table have the option of betting on who they think will win that particular round.

At the start of any Baccarat game, a wager is placed on the table. Two card are dealt to the player and two cards to the banker. The players card will be dealt face up, and the bankers face down. The players cards are now added up and if the score equates to 3,4 or 5 another card will be dealt to the player.

It will then be the bankers turn to turn his cards face up and the same procedure will then take place with either the banker taking extra cards or standing with what he has got.

In Baccarat if you get two cards that go over the amount of 9, the first number falls away and only the second number is used. For example, if in a hand a nine and a eight are dealt, this would equal 17, so because the first digit falls away, the value of those cards is 7. However, if an additional card is taken and this card is a 3, the value of the 3 cards in the hand would then be 0.

This is truly a fun game and a game that draws a tremendous amount of attention. There are only three bets that can be placed here, the banker, the player or a draw, so your chances of winning are pretty high and hence the popularity of this game.
