At the live casino option of an online casino there are not that many casino games available but one that is available at most online casinos is Baccarat or Punto Banco as it is known at some online casinos. Punto Banco and Baccarat are the same casino game and it seems to have acquired a reputation for being a casino game for high rollers only which may be the case in regular casinos but online casinos have stakes for all pockets. To play Baccarat is remarkably simple as you don’t actually have to do anything except place your bet and there are only three possible bets available anyway which are for the bank to win or for the player to win or for t to be a tie. It may seem strange to start with as Baccarat must be the only online casino game where both hands are played by the dealer and where it is possible to bet on the bank winning but the most confusing thing is probably the counting or the cards. Before you play Baccarat take the time to read about the counting, you can also read about the rules which state whether a card is drawn or not in all circumstances but as you are not playing a hand that is less important. These strict rules are also why Baccarat hands can be played by a dealer as there is no room for discretion. Baccarat is generally available at online casinos as regular play or at the live casino option but the rules for both are the same. Baccarat play is such that the bank has the better chance of winning of the two hands but to compensate there will be a 5% deduction from your winnings which makes it a less than even money bet. Online casino Baccarat is a fast game but has a good chance of winning.
