It was the game of choice for the early James Bond and has been described as the only game which casinos both love and fear. Indeed, baccarat is one of the most popular casino table games of all, offering the best chance for a player to make a run on the house.
The most popular version of Baccarat, Punto Banco, is the variation Phil Ivey played in his infamous $20million edge-sorting runs.
There are a few other rules involved depending on which version of the game and where you play, but it’s an easy enough game to pick up quickly and offers the best chance of any game to bust the bank. Game on!
First, you need to know what the card values are: the 2-9 are face value, while the 10, jack, queen and king are worth zero. An ace counts as one.
You can bet on the player, or the bank (the dealer) or a tie, and there are three outcomes – you win, you lose or it’s a tie.
The dealer then deals out two cards each for the player and banker – face up—and whichever hand totals closest to nine wins.
If you bet on the player’s hand and win, you get double? What you bet.
If you bet on the banker's hand and win, you get 95 percent? Of your wager.
A tie is worth 8-1?
If the cards dealt total more than nine, you add the two numbers together and drop the one (or two) to get the value.
For example, a 6 and a 7 gives 13, drop the 1 and you have 3.
Baccarat is a simple game played in most casinos around the world. It contains a fixed set of probabilities with no real skill required to play the game.
