Online Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Growing In Popularity

Baccarat is a casino game which is becoming increasingly more popular. Although it is still not quite as common as blackjack, more people are giving it a go and enjoying it.

There are some similarities between baccarat and blackjack, the most obvious being that the player is in action against the dealer. However, the big difference is that you are not directly competing against them as you have an option on whose hand you would like to place a bet on.

You can keep it simple and put your stake on your own cards. The game also allows you to back the dealer coming out on top, while the third selection is a tie.

In baccarat you add the starting cards together just like you would in blackjack. The big differences are that face cards are to the value of 0 and aces equal 1. The latter do not have a dual value either.

Once you get your total, you need to add the two digits together to give yourself a single digit score. For example, a nine of clubs and a six of hearts would create a total of 15 but your score would be 6.

 The winning hand is the one which has the highest score. Unlike blackjack there are a couple of rules which you must follow when it comes to hitting. If you have a score which is of five or below, you are able to take another card from the pack. However, with six or above, you have to stand. The best possible score is 9 and if you are lucky enough to get this, you cannot be beaten.

Baccarat is a game of chance and there are no strategies which can give you an edge. What this means is that anybody can play and have success despite their experience.
