All About Baccarat
One of the oldest casino games still played today, baccarat likely originated in France in the early 15th century. Originally called Chemin de Fer, this game was popular among the French nobility because printing cards in the early days of the printing press was still very expensive. Chemin de Fer was further popularized during the early 1900s, under King Louis Phillip, after playing cards for money became illegal in 1837. Along with the increase of printing availability, this shift in legality helped distribute the card game among the social classes. However, to this day baccarat is still associated with high class and royalty.
The game found itself in the Americas, due to European immigration. Another variation emerged, called Punto Banco. This version became popular in Argentinian casinos. From there, Punto Banco spread to Las Vegas casinos in the 1950s where it became as popular as blackjack.
How to Play and Win at Baccarat
Get to nine, or as close as possible – that is the goal. There are also three potential outcomes: a player win, a banker win, and a tie. All you do is watch the dealer throw the cards on the table and bet on who you think will win. Card values are as follows: two through nine are face value; a 10, jack, queen, and king are zero; and an ace is one.
First, the dealer, or banker, deals the cards face up: two for you and two for the banker. Whichever hand totals closest to nine wins. If you bet on the player hand and it’s closest to nine, the winnings are double what you bet. If you bet on the banker hand and it wins, usually you receive 95 percent of your wager.
If the cards dealt equal greater than nine, you add the two together and drop the one or two to get the value. For example, if you have a nine and seven, that would be 16. But you drop the one, leaving the total six.
If the player or banker receives a total of eight or nine, both player and banker stand. If your total (the player total) equals five or less, you’ll receive another card. Otherwise, you’ll stand. Also, if the player stands, the banker hits on a total of five or less.
