Playing Online Baccarat

    Baccarat is one of those games that is not only fun to play but incredibly easy to learn. Here there are not long lists of rules and regulations, no massive amounts of cards to hold and keep tabs on and definitely no multiple rounds of betting and dealing.

    What is Baccarat? Baccarat is a table game played at a specific Baccarat table with a set of cards. There will be a dealer and anything from one to 15 players (depending on the table)

    At the beginning of the game, all players will sit around the table and bet on either the banker to win, the player to win or if there will be a Tie. Players can bet on any of these options, or place different values on each option. In other worlds if a player thinks that the banker will win, he/she can bet a higher value on this option, and a lesser value on the player winning and maybe no bet on the game being a tie. Alternatively only one bet can be placed if the player feels that either the banker or the player has the upper hand.

    The dealer will then deal two cards to the player and two cards to the banker and the Player will play first. If the cards dealt to the player total an amount of 5 or less, another card will be dealt to the player, but if it is 6 or above, the player will stand.

    The dealer will now play. If the player has 2 or less, another card will be dealt but if it is a seven, the dealer will stand.

    In Baccarat, the whole idea of the game is to get your card to add up to a value of 9. Ace is counted as 1, two to nine at face value and Ten, Jack, Queen and King have absolutely no value at all. If in the first round an Ace and Nine are drawn, the two will be added together which will equal Ten. Baccarat does not play in double digits so the first number will fall away and only the last number will be counted. This means if your cards add up to ten, your score will actually be zero and a subsequent card will be dealt.

    This is an awesome, no fuss and very quick game. The players place their bets, the dealer deals out the cards, second cards dealt if necessary, the winner proclaimed and the bets paid out. That is truly how quick and easy online baccarat is played.
