Lots of people go to casinos and even more play games at an online casino and the most popular games in each case are Roulette and Blackjack but despite being regular gamblers most would not know how to play Baccarat which is amazing when you consider that the game of Baccarat has been around a very long time. Known in some circles as Punto Banco the game of Baccarat is also surprisingly easy to play as there are only three possible bets and three possible results, a bit like a football match except that instead of a home win, an away win or a draw, either the bank wins, the players wins or it is a draw. What makes the game of Baccarat unique is the fact that the dealer plays both hands (dealer and player) and you can bet on either hand winning or it being a draw. It may seem disconcerting for the dealer to be playing both hands but the rules are such that there is no choice about how to play a hand, every combination of cards has a rule governing whether an extra card will be drawn or not; similar in a way to the dealers hand in a blackjack game where you know cards will be drawn until the total is 17 or above and then they will stand. The best thing to do if you are new to the game is play free Baccarat which is available at most online casinos but do not be surprised if you cannot follow it because the card values and counting is a bit strange. The rules of the game can be found at our Baccarat page and we advise you to read that first. Baccarat is a great fast moving game that requires no skill so by all means give it a go and if you fancy it Live Baccarat is available at most live online casinos..
