Bank Money on Baccarat

Bank Money on Baccarat

Baccarat is a kind of card game. The word Baccarat is actually pronounced as Back-a-rah. This an extraordinary game in which the score of 10 is counted as 0. Moreover, two picture cards also add up to 0. One can score 9 at the highest. In this game, 9 plus 6 gives you 5 not 15, reason being the first digit is always subtracted. The customer can bet on three possible results that are Player, Banker and Tie.

There are three traditional kinds of Baccarat: Punto Banco, Baccarat Chemin de Fer and Baccarat Banque.

What is Punto Banco?
Punto Banco is North American Baccarat played in the United States, Australia and Canada. In this card game, the casino banks the game and punters bet on the player or the banker. Player and Banker are the designations given to the two hands dealing in the game.

How Is The Game Played?
The card game is played at an oval table having a croupier and two dealers. Croupier is the person who gives directions for playing the game. The dealers collect and pay bets. They are the ones who shuffle those Six to eight card decks that are used in the game.
In the initial deal, each player and banker gets two cards. Thereafter, the values of the cards in each hand are added. To settle on the call for drawing further cards, Tableau (table of play) is followed. This table of play sets terms and conditions for both the player and the banker like: If one hand gets total of 8 or 9 in the initial deal then no more cards will be drawn or if the player’s cards add up to 6 or 7 then he will not draw any card and so on. Each hand can draw three cards at most. The hand with the highest total wins the game and gets paid as per the rule of the house.

The Ambience
In the cities like Las Vegas, Punto Banco is often played in special separate rooms of casinos. This is done in order to protect the high stakes of money involved in the game. The game is played at a large scale. Even the so called minimum bets are high in themselves.

Money cannot be a problem for you if you want to enjoy the game. You can play it at smaller table where lowest and highest bets are genuinely low. The only thing that matters in the card game is the fun that you must have at last.
