Baccarat is one of the oldest and most popular games in casinos all over the world. It is especially popular among high-rollers and Asian gamblers. Although the game seems serious and elegant, it is really as simple as betting on the flip of a coin. This Is vegas offers it inside their table games section and with a great help section that makes the game fun and easy to play.

Baccarat is played in a snooty roped off area of the casino to separate itself from the other games. The players are usually very well dressed and the table minimums are often high. The great thing about playing online, is you can play in your pajama’s and the table limit is only between $1.00 and $250.00 per hand.

Baccarat (pronounced bakəraː) is a simple game with only three possible results – ‘Player’, ‘Banker’ and ‘Tie’. The term ‘Player’ does not refer to the customer and the term ‘Banker’ does not refer to the house. They are just options on which the customer can bet.

The object of the game is to predict whose hand, the banker’s or the player’s hand will be closer to the value of nine. Players can also bet that a tie will occur. When a player bets and wins on a tie, they win the highest pay out, 9:1.

I played for a while, made a little money, but did not really have a lot of fun. Inside a casino, this game is very exciting and playing from home probably takes away from that. Check it out and decide for yourselves.
