The baccarat history
Online Baccarat, as we know it today, went through the centuries before becoming the greatest classic of gambling halls as well as a symbol of live casinos. Many researchers agree that this card game was imported from Italy to France during the reign of Charles VIII, who was in power from 1483 to 1498. Since then, it has been capturing the hearts of people searching for thrill and vivid emotions. Being a game of chance, the aim is mainly to win as much money as possible by taking it away from other pointers.
In its long way, the Baccarat game managed to save its essence and rules and reached the modern online platforms as well. In addition to the rules, Baccarat games have also maintained the reputation of being a game for the rich or, in our times, a gamble for high-level players. This was also dictated by the relatively high bets and challenging game flow. These became the main reasons for the creation of a new version that also allowed lower bets in order to let every person try their hand. The name of this version is the Mini Baccarat. This version was also incorporated into an online baccarat casino and once again increased the number of baccarat fans.
In most versions, 2 main players fight for the real-money prize: the baccarat live dealer and the pointer. However, a large number of bettors (up to 14) can intervene at each bet, placing bets on the winning or the loss of the pointer, as well as on a draw. In the deux tableaux version of baccarat, there are 2 pointers.
Variations of online baccarat
Baccarat is a world’s famous online game that certainly will not leave you indifferent. It has quite strict rules and a little space for real intervention by the player, so you must rely almost exclusively on your luck. You should know three main versions presented in baccarat casinos: Punto Banco (or North American, the one played in casinos), Chemin de Fer, and A Deux Tableaux.
The most widespread version is The Punto Banco version, which involves the use of 4, 6 or 8 decks of French cards (hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades) of 52 since jokers are not used here. Chemin de Fer is favored in France, where its name refers to an iron box, where the cards were placed. The French version uses 6 decks of French cards, while in the Deux Tableaux version (or wings) the number of decks may vary, although basically, it is 3.
Live baccarat: rules and regulations
It will not be a problem for you to learn the rules even if you have played this game. The rules are rather schematic and different versions vary only in the level of freedom the pointer has during the game. After shuffling the decks, the baccarat live dealer deals two face-down cards to himself and two to the pointer. When you see your cards, your task is to calculate the sum of the two cards you got according to the following rules: the figures count as 10, while the numbers are equal to their numeral value. However, remember that only the units must be considered for this sum. What does it mean? If the cards are for example a 8 and a 5, the result is 8 + 5 = 13 = 3. Or if the cards are a 6 and a 4, it will count as zero because 6+ 4 = 10 = 0 (called Baccarat). Now you can calculate the value of your cards and wait for the dealer to do the same. If one of you has totalled 8 or 9 (such a result is called natural), the hands are revealed and the one who has collected the highest score wins (in case of a tie the game is tied). If a natural has not been reached, the following rules come into force:
If you (pointer) have rolled a 6 or a 7, you cannot draw any cards. If, on the other hand, your result is lower, you will be given another card, uncovered. At this point, it is the dealer's turn to act based on the value of his cards:
- a total of 7 - he stands and draws no cards;
- a total of 6 - he draws a card if the pointer's up card is a 6 or a 7;
- a total of 5 - he draws a card if the pointer's face-up card is 4, 5, 6 or 7;
- a total of 4 - he draws a card if the face up card of the pointer has a value from 2 to 7;
- a total of 3 - he draws a card unless the one revealed by the pointer is an 8 or a 9;
- If he has 2, 1 or Baccarat - he always draws a card.
After this, all the cards are finally revealed, and the winner's title and prize go to the one who managed to reach the value closest to 9. Bets are collected according to whether the various players have bet on one of the two or a tie. Now you know how to play the classic or Punto Banco version of Baccarat.
In Chemin de Fer, the Banco is usually held by one of the players taking part in the game. The object of the game is to beat the Dealer by reaching a score as close as possible to 9. It is played with 6 standard decks of French cards which are shuffled at each turn of the game. Since the players play the role of the dealer, it is necessary that this change hands and therefore be held in turns. The player holding the dealer bets an amount that the others can call in whole or in part until the full amount is covered anyway. In Chemin de Fer it is very important to know the value of the cards: the ten and face cards are worth 0, while the other cards keep their face value including the ace which is worth one.
Now let’s touch on the third variant of Baccarat - the two-winged version. Here, the players arrange themselves freely to the right or left of the dealer. The cards are dealt in the following manner: two to the right wing, two to the left, two to the dealer. Regardless of the wing you are sitting on, you can bet either on your own wing, on the other, or both, putting money in the center. The rules play out as mentioned, and in the end, the dealer distributes the winnings or withdraws the losses.
If you have bet for the center, depending on the result, your options are:
- If both wings win or lose, then you win or lose;
- If one wing wins and the other loses, the bet remains "frozen" in the center of the dealer for the next game;
- If one wing wins and the other ties, or if one and the other draw, then you win or lose half of your bet, while the other half remains frozen.
If the lucky pointer or the baccarat live dealer reaches 8 or 9 with only the first two cards, this value takes precedence over even higher scores achieved together with the third card.
