Baccarat

Baccarat is probably the most lavish and least understood of all casino games. If you've ever been to a land Casino, Baccarat is a game that can be enjoyed by both high and low rollers alike. It provides a relaxing respite from the other games found on the main gaming floor, and offers a sophistication that is akin to the famous casinos of Europe and Monte Carlo.

So, the next time you're at your favorite gambling hall, be it online or in Las Vegas, try a few hands of this unique and interesting table game, and you may discover the allure of Baccarat

Rules

The object of Baccarat is to hold 2 or 3 cards, which count 9, or as near to 9 as possible. The values of the cards are: face cards and tens are worth zero, aces are 1, and any other card is worth its face value. Units of 10 points are disregarded so that 9+7 count as 6, not 16

The dealer will deal out cards to both the player and dealer. Depending on the value the initial 2-card hands, a third card may be dealt to either one of the hands. Ultimately the winning hand will be the one closest to 9. When a tie arises, that is considered a push, just like in Blackjack, and the bet is returned to the player.
