How to Play Online Baccarat

Baccarat is a card game played with one to eight standard decks of 52 cards. Baccarat was once considered the exclusive property of the jet setters, the high rollers, and glamorous secret agents. Now regular people from all walks of life can play baccarat online at All Slots Online Casino.

The Object of the Game of Baccarat

The object of the game of baccarat is to predict who will draw the higher hand, The Player or The Banker. But note that "The Player" does not mean you (even though you are playing baccarat), and "The Banker" does not mean the casino (even though the casino has lots of money). "The Player" and "The Banker" are simply the terms that are used to denote the two hands that are dealt in a baccarat game. You are always free to bet on either hand, or to bet on a tie.

The Funny Rules of Baccarat

There are two unusual baccarat rules to keep in mind. The first is that 10s and face cards count as zero. The second is that only the last digit of the total is counted. So according to the rules of baccarat, a king, an 8, and a 6 will add up to 14, which counts as 4. A hand consisting of a 7 and a 3 counts as 0, or Baccarat. (It's actually rather odd that the name of the game comes from the worst possible hand.) Once you know these rules, playing online baccarat is really quite easy.

Starting the Baccarat Game

You start your baccarat game by making one of the three possible baccarat bets:

  • Player
  • Banker
  • Tie

In online baccarat, you place your bet by clicking on the appropriate button or on the appropriate area of the virtual baccarat table. Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each of the baccarat bets, and acting on that knowledge, is the key to a successful baccarat strategy.

The Play of the Baccarat Cards

After you place your bet, the Player and the Banker each receive two cards. The Player might then draw a third card. Unlike a blackjack player, the baccarat Player has no free will in this matter. The decision is made strictly in accordance with a baccarat rule specifying that if the Player's two-card total is 5 or less, the Player must hit; over 5, the Player stands. You do not need to memorize the rule; if you are playing baccarat online, the computer will automatically deal a third card if the baccarat rules calls for it.

Another difference from blackjack is that the Player may hit only once, so the maximum number of cards in a baccarat hand is three. 

After the Player's hand is complete, the Banker either stands or hits. The rule governing the Banker's hand is a little more complicated, but the main idea is the same: the stand-or-hit decision is made according to the baccarat rules and not by anyone's free will. If you play baccarat in an online casino, the baccarat software will automatically deal a third card to the Banker when it is appropriate to do so.

After both hands are completed, the hands are compared and the higher hand wins the online baccarat game.

Winning at Online Baccarat

There are several ways to win at online baccarat:

  • If you placed a bet on the Banker's hand and that hand wins, you will receive an even-money payout on your bet, minus a 5 percent commission to the house.

  • If you placed a bet on the Player's hand and that hand wins, you will receive an even-money payout on your bet, with no commission taken out.

  • If you placed a bet on Tie and the outcome of the game is a tie, you will receive an 8-to-1 payout on your Tie bet.

  • If the hands produce a tie and you did not bet on a Tie, your bet will be returned without your winning or losing anything.

The Fun of Baccarat Online

As you can see, there is nothing terribly mysterious or intimidating about the game of baccarat. In fact, it is one of the easiest of all the online casino games. Try it yourself, and you'll see how much fun online baccarat can be. Good luck, and have fun playing baccarat online!
