For some reason the casino game of Baccarat is surrounded in mystery and this probably stems from the fact that mainland casinos in Monte Carlo and such places often cordon off the Baccarat tables and reserve them for high rollers and this reputation has been enhanced by a certain Mr James Bond. As usual with such things however the truth is different and Baccarat is a very easy game to play and online casinos have brought it to everybody even for quite low stakes. You can often find Baccarat also in the live casino option at an online casino although the stakes here will be a little bit higher but certainly not in the high roller category. To play Baccarat you need not know anything about the game as it is a casino game of pure luck 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 tie. There are in fact two hands dealt one of which is called the player and the other the bank and the unusual thing about playing Baccarat is that as a gambler you can bet on the bank winning which means that although you are a player the players hand does not belong to anybody in particular; it could equally be called hand 1 and hand 2. The other rather strange thing about baccarat is that both hands are played by the dealer without any intervention from those gambling on the hands. This can be rather disconcerting until you realise that actually the rules governing Baccarat play are such that when a card is drawn is fixed which makes it very easy to adapt to online baccarat. The counting system of the cards is also unique and takes some getting used to but there is a complete description here at casinos.ie which you can read.
