Baccarat is a casino card game that is simple to play, loved by high rollers (and low rollers too), and is a name that is in the public domain. So much like Roulette, Craps, Blackjack and other casino games; software developers each offer their own version of these games to players. This version of Baccarat has been brought to our computer screens by OS Gaming, and is based on straightforward rules. It allows a minimum wager of 1.00, and a maximum of 300.00. This is higher than we see at many tables, as often the upper limit is 100.00, so, the slightly higher rolling player may enjoy the OS adaptation more.
How To Play
Playing online baccarat sees us virtually seated around a table with space for five, virtually playing against a banker. A croupiers voice calls wins or losses, and to the right of the player we find our chips. These come in denominations of 1.00, 5.00, 10.00, 25.00, and 100.00. Simply click on the appropriate chip size and place in the betting area. Click more than once on a single chip to increase its size.
The aim of Baccarat is for the player to get a point score of nine, or closer to nine than the banker. Only two cards are used unless there is a very low score. At that time one or even another card may be dealt when a push is the position. Point values for cards are number cards their own value – Aces 1 point, and 10’s and face cards are zero. If cards add up to double digits, the ten value becomes a zero. For example if the player is dealt a 9 + 5, the score = 14, but is actually four.
There are three wagering positions – the player, the banker, and the tie. The player may place wagers on all three positions where the “Player” wager wins 1 – 1, the “Banker” wager wins 0.75 -1, and the “Tie” bet pays 8 – 1. Ties occur quite regularly, so this is not a wasteful side bet, even if played at a lower amount, than a normal wager.
This game starts by placing a chip in one, two or all of the betting positions. Then simply click the deal button and the cards are dealt. Two sets of two cards face-up are dealt from a shoe of six packs of 52 cards, and the croupier calls out wins or losses.
