Most online casinos today have what is called a live casino option which is supposed to give you more of a feeling of being at an actual casino rather than an online casino but the games on offer are very restricted and usually there is only Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat available and of those three Baccarat is not played that often as it is one of those casino games that is not very widely understood. Despite the reputation for being a high stakes casino gambling game requiring a great deal of skill Baccarat is actually a casino game requiring no skill whatsoever and the stakes are entirely up to you although generally speaking the minimum stakes at the live casino version of baccarat will be higher than the equivalent online casino version. There are only two hands dealt in the game of baccarat which are called the “bank” and the “player” and there are only three possible bets which are for the player to win, the bank to win or for the hand to be a draw. What is unusual about the casino game of baccarat, apart from the fact that you can place a bet on the bank to win, is that the dealer plays both hands which must be done according to very strict rules and it is this exactly which makes baccarat a game of pure luck rather than skill. There are no decisions to be made and no flexibility, the baccarat rules cover every eventuality and if you are interested we have a page on baccarat here at casinos.ie. At first baccarat will seem a bit of a mystery as the card counting is very strange but once you have mastered the fact that 12 becomes 2 or 16 becomes 6 it really is not that difficult and even if you do not understand what is going on you can still have great fun and win playing baccarat.
