Play Online Baccarat Game


Baccarat - the game of the rich and famous - the game of high-flyers, Hollywood stars and oil barons!

Until recently, only the highest class casinos offered baccarat, and only their richest clients could afford the table minimums. No wonder the name conjours up an image of glamour and expensive cigars, diamonds and vintage cognac!

The good news is that you no longer have to be a multi-millionaire to savor the excitement of baccarat - with online casinos you can play online baccarat game anytime, anywhere!

Baccarat has fascinated high-class gamblers for centuries. The game was said to have been invented in Italy by Felix Falguierein, a professional gambler, although some dispute this, saying that it is French in origin. In any case, baccarat was introduced to the French court in the 15th century, and soon became the game of the aristocracy. The name is taken from the Italian word "baccara", meaning zero, and refers to the game rule that all court cards have a value of zero. Baccarat was first played with tarot cards, and there is a legend linking it with the ancient Etruscan ritual of the Nine Gods.

Chemin de Fer, a variation of baccarat, also became popular in France. The original baccarat game evolved into what is now known as European Baccarat. The principles of play are the same in baccarat and chemin de fer, with just a slight difference in rules. In both games, the object is to score as close as possible to 9 by adding up the face values of the cards, and discarding the leftmost digit of the answer. In baccarat, the rules are more formal, and the game is always banked by the casino, although the deal passes from player to player. Players may choose to bet on the player, the banker or on a tie. Since a tie doesn't happen very often, ties win at much longer odds.

Although popular for centuries in Europe, baccarat only reached American casinos in the 1950's via South America. The American version is a combination of European baccarat and chemin de fer. Casino holders preserved its aristocratic image by setting the stakes high and housing the game in the plushest area of the casino. Since a lot of money changes hands in baccarat because of the high stakes, the fortunes of the casino often fluctuate directly according to the success or failure of its clients at the baccarat table!

Mini-baccarat was later introduced to bring the game within the reach of ordinary clients. With mini baccarat, the stakes are much lower, and the game is much faster. However, many people are still attracted by the glamour of the original game, with its luxurious surroundings and exclusive atmosphere.

Online baccarat is becoming increasingly popular, since the rules are simple, and the 'house edge' (the percentage by which any game favors the casino) is low.
