It’s a game of British princes and French aristocracy, one of the most famous gamblings in both live and online casinos that is only perhaps less popular than blackjack and poker. Simplicity, unique style and elegance make this awesome venturesome entertainment as topical as it used to be several centuries ago.

The principle of the game is very simple: the main aim all players try to reach is to collect as much points as possible taking into account the fact that it is allowed to use only 2 or 3 cards (don’t forget that tens and all «images» equal zero, an ace is — 1, and 1-9 cards have a face value). Punto Banco (or mini-baccarat) when the gambler plays against the dealer is considered to be the main game variant of modern casinos. The total value of the deal should equal 9 or be as closer as possible to it. Both dealer and player get 2 cards at the beginning. Mostly, they are enough to collect the winning combination. However, in some cases the third card is allowed according to the rules.

In online casinos players can bet on potential winner (the player or dealer) or on tie. In the case when the player gains the highest number of points the winning is paid in ratio 1 to 1. If the dealer has the highest number of points the winning is paid in the same ratio but with the subtraction of the commission. And finally, when the player and dealer have the similar number of points the tie bet becomes the winning one and the prize goes to those who betted on tie in ratio 9 to 1 or 8 to 1.

The participant who takes 10 points of the number maximally close to 9 wins (if the player has 8 points and the dealer even less ones the player wins).

This game is becoming more and more popular in online casinos. It’s about 99 percent that baccarat can be found in the list of mandatory card games. The game gained such popularity among gamblers due to simple rules and great dynamics. Baccarat with numerous variations is release by lots of gaming software producers from Bossmedia to Microgaming.
