It is quite unusual for a casino game to be played more at online casinos than at land based casinos but such is the case with the casino game of baccarat. Baccarat is in fact a very old casino game but for some unknown reason it was always played by high rollers in a special section of the casino. This gave the impression that it was a very complicated game to play and only for rich people who understood the game. In fact Baccarat is one of the most simple of all casino games to play and online casinos have brought the game to everybody for all kinds of stakes and it is even available at some of the online casinos that have a live casino option although some of those such as All Irish Casino prefer to call the game Punto Banco but it is the same casino game. What makes Baccarat so simple is that there are only two hands of cards dealt which are called the player and the bank and the dealer decides when to draw cards and when to stand for both hands. This definitely sounds strange at first but the casino dealer has to abide by very strict rules so there is actually no room for any decision making by the dealer he simply follows the rules. Baccarat is also probably the only casino game where you can bet on either hand to win or for the result to be a draw which are in fact the only three possibilities. Online Baccarat is an ideal game for an online casino as the software governing when cards are drawn is very simple and you do not even have to know how to play Baccarat although it does help; you can simply place your bet on one hand or the other and wait and see what happens.
