Play Baccarat online, the popular casino card game with a simple playing style and a high pay rate making it an ideal card game for both novices and experts alike.
Baccarat requires a winning hand to have a combined card value the closest to nine as possible, to achieve this Baccarat card values are slightly different to what you would expect from a standard set of cards. Aces count as one, two through nine are exactly that, and tens and picture cards count as zero.
Confusingly at first, any point total beyond 9 disregards the first digit. For example; 10 = 0, 12 = 2.
Baccarat has three betting options; yours, the dealers or a tie. Once you are happy with your bet, two cards will be dealt to both you and the dealer. The hand closest to nine wins and your stake will be returned at 2/1 should you have made the correct betting decision.
As Baccarat is such an even money game, a winning bet on the dealer will result in a deduction of 5% from your winning stake. In the result of a tie, your stake is returned. If you bet on a tie you are paid out at 9/1.
Baccarat is an incredibly popular game in land based casinos, especially amongst the Asian community who can often spend hours playing. Baccarat is also incredibly popular to high rollers who like a fair game.
