How to Play Baccarat Online
One casino game with a low house edge is baccarat. Combine this with the fact that the game is so easy to learn and it is not difficult to figure out why so many people now play it online. Many online casinos offer this game to their players, as it has a long history of appearing in land-based casinos.
Baccarat dates back to 19th century France. The game was originally called baccarat chemin de fer. It is now commonly known as punto banco and, less commonly, baccarat banque.
The most important thing to know about playing baccarat online is that the game is all about predicting if the banker or player will get a higher hand of cards. One hand is referred to as the banker and the other is referred to as the player. There is always a choice between betting on either of these hands.
A game of baccarat kicks off with placing a banker, player or tie bet. Online casinos make it easy to click on the desired bet option. Due to the rules of baccarat,no hand will ever include more than three cards. This is one of the things that make the game so easy to learn. Anytime a third card is needed during a hand of an online baccarat game, the game automatically deals that third card. When hands are completed in a game of online baccarat,the one with the highest hand wins.
Winning a game of online baccaratdoes not have to be difficult. Anytime a player bets on the dealer’s winning hand they get a payout that equals 5% less than the amount of the bet they placed. If a player bets on the players winning hand, they get a payout that equals their bet exactly.
When a bet is placed on a tie, and the game ends in a tie, an 8-1 payout is awarded. Anytime a hand of cards is dealt and a tie ensues, the amount of the bet placed is returned to the person who placed it. This means that no money is won but no money is lost either.
The various types of baccarat offered at live online casinos are Punto Banco, Chemin de Fer, Baccarat enBanque, Super Pan 9 and Three Card Baccarat. Punto Banco is the Americanized version of the game and the one found in most land-based casinos. This version of the game is also played in Australia and Canada.
Super Pan 9 is another version of the game seen in American casinos. In this version of the game, 36-card decks are used, as opposed to 52-card decks. Chemin de Fer and Baccarat enBanque are most played by those in European countries. Three Card baccarat is the version of the game that is mainly played in Asia and Macau.
The experience of playing baccarat online has introduced the game to many players around the world. With so many versions to choose from, most players have a favorite.
