Baccarat Online

 

Baccarat is a game that is very easy to play and this makes it one of the most popular casino games at online casinos. The player only needs to make a guess about who will have the winning hand: The Banker? Or the Player? You make your guess and place your bet, and that\'s it!

4, 6 or 8 card decks are used in baccarat usually and the game may include as many players as 14. There are only two options to place a bet in Baccarat: Banker or Player. Actually, you can also prefer to bet on a Tie (meaning the banker and the player will have hands with the same value and in that case there\'s no winner), but a tie is hard to come across in baccarat and if you lose, the house edge for the tie bet is pretty high. So we don\'t really recommend you to bet on a tie. Still, the choice is yours. If you happen to win, this rare winning can earn you more than Player or Banker options.

The aim of baccarat is to have the hand with the value closest to 9. The value of face cards and 10s is 0, the value of an ace is 1 and other numbered cards worth their face value. When the sum value of the cards in your hand is over 10, the value of your hand is the second digit of the sum of your cards. Let\'s say you have 5 and 7, and the total value of your hand is not 12 but 2. Likewise, if you have 6 and 4, your hand value is not 10, but 0. Please keep in mind that there are no jokers in baccarat.

You choose banker or player, then place your bet and then receive 2 cards facing up. The player receives the cards first and if the two cards of either the player or the banker makes up a total of 8 or 9, then it\'s a natural win.

If there\'s no winning hand with the first 2 cards, the player receives a third card if the value of the hand is between 0-5. If the total value of the player\'s hand is 6 or 7, the player stays and no third cards are received. If the player does not receive a third card, the banker can get a third card if the hand\'s value is 0-5.

If the player receives a third card, then there are very specific rules whether the banker should stay or get the third card, depending on the third card the player received. The good thing is you don\'t need to learn and memorize all these rules that may confuse you, as online baccarat games have an automatic dealer. More than 3 cards can not be dealt in baccarat, so the winner is determined when all the three cards are received.

For your information, the set of rules for the banker\'s third card are below (the numbers are the value of the hands):
Player\'s 3rd card: 2 or 3; Banker Draws: 0-4; Banker Stays: 5-7
Player\'s 3rd card: 4 or 5; Banker Draws: 0-5; Banker Stays: 6-7
Player\'s 3rd card: 6 or 7; Banker Draws: 0-6; Banker Stays: 7
Player\'s 3rd card: 8; Banker Draws: 0-2; Banker Stays: 3-7
Player\'s 3rd card: 9 or 10 or face card; Banker Draws: 0-3; Banker Stays: 4-7
