How to play Baccarat


Baccarat is a famous card game, but in comparison to Blackjack it is mostly game of chance. Of course, it has certain rules; however, there is no basic strategy, as for example, card counting in blackjack. The result of the game depends on the value of cards. It is simpler than any other card game. Baccarat online doesn't differ from Baccarat that is played in land-based casino.

Main rules of Baccarat

Each gaming table has three sectors where to bet: Player, Banker and Tie. Players can make their bets either on one or two sectors with the exception of Player-Banker. The amount of points depends on the value of cards: Ace has 1 point; Queen, King, Jack and 10 -have zero; all other cards are ranked according to their nominal values. Each winning bet has its payoffs.

The number of points is counted by adding values of two cards. It may happen that the sum up value is more than 9, in this case player should deduct 10 points. For example, gamer collects 15 point, he should take off 10 and the number of his points will be 5. In case if either banker or player has a value of 8 or 9 the set is over. This situation is called Natural. If the value of cards is less than 8 or 10, game goes on. The next results of the game might have place:

  • Player's number of point is more - Player bet is winning as 1 to 1.
  • Banker has more pints - banker bet is winning in correlation 1 to 1. Moreover, 5% commission is paid in favor of casino.
  • Player and banker have equal number of points - Tie is winning and bets are paid off in correlation 9 to 1.
