Online Baccarat is a digital table game that is based on the original game of Baccarat that originated in Italy sometime during the 14th Century. It is as popular now as it was then thanks to its exciting game play and amazing payouts.
Online Baccarat is one of the only current crop of digital casino table games that allows you to bet on ALL possible card outcomes. This makes it a fun as well as profitable game to play for beginner as well as experienced players alike.
When playing Baccarat you’ll have the option to bet on either the "Player," the "Banker" or on even the possibility of a "Tie" between the two parties. Please note however that the terms "Player" and "Banker" do not at any time refer to the house and an actual player, allowing you to wagering on either to win.
The game of Baccarat is based on a system of card scoring and the winning hand is simply the one with the highest score – 9 is the highest possible score combination of cards! To calculate a Baccarat hand you’ll need to follow the following individual card values:
Number Cards 1-9: These have their face value
Face cards (Jack, Queen, King): These have a value of ZERO
An Important Gaming Note! All final Baccarat hands with a value of more than 10 are subject to modulo or the remainder of 10 rule. To explain how this works, we have provided you with an example below:
A Baccarat hand of 5 + A = 6, but a hand of 4 + 6 = 0 under the accepted modulo rule of 10. This zero hand is the lowest one possible and is in fact the hand that gives the game its name of Baccarat. For your convenience and ease of play all Baccarat hands are automatically scored in-play by our software as each card is dealt. This makes it exceptionally easy for you to follow the action. Because of this Baccarat practise playing and quick scoring should become second nature to all baccarat players in our Microgaming powered software.
