There are very few casino games available at the live casino option of online casinos but probably the most interesting is Baccarat. Baccarat is an unusual card game in that the dealer plays all the cards and although the two hands dealt are called the bank and the player when you play baccarat you can bet on either hand to win. The alternative name for Baccarat is Punto Banco where Punto is the player (possibly the origin of punter?) and Banco is the bank but the game is the same as Baccarat. Despite having a reputation for being a casino game for high rollers and difficult to play neither of those statements is true and in fact you could play Baccarat without any knowledge of the game at all because as previously stated the dealer plays all the cards. There are also only three possible bets at the online casino game of Baccarat which are for either of the two hands to win or for the result to be a tie so place your bet and see what happens. Although Baccarat is available at the live casino with a dealer it is also available at the regular online casino to which it lends itself very well as the way to play each hand is very regulated and follows strict rules. When you first start to play or watch baccarat being played it is quite difficult to follow due to the strange way of counting cards but a quick read of the rules will soon make you understand what is going on and in fact it is quite simple. No hand can be larger than 9 so when two cards add up to more than 9 (say an eight and a seven for example which would normally be 15) then 10 is deducted so it becomes 5. Weird but that’s the way baccarat is played.
