The In’s and Out’s of Baccarat A8th Aug 2017 |
Baccarat is one of the oldest casino table games played today, and it is also one of the most sophisticated and elegant. To play this iconic game you don’t have to go through months of training to begin playing well. The game is simple enough to learn the basic rules very quickly, probably within your first round or two, and the strategy comes along very soon after that.
The relative simplicity of Baccarat is just one of the things that make this classic so popular, with both the weekend gamer and casino regular here at SuperLenny.
How to Play
The first thing to know when playing Baccarat A at SuperLenny is that the player goes up against the dealer. The goal of the game is to try and come as close to the number 9 as possible and whoever comes closer between the player and the dealer wins the hand.
An interesting aspect of how the hands are counted is that all of the face cards and multiples of 10 cancel out and end up equalling to 0. This means that if you have a queen, a six, and a four, your hand will be equal to zero. If your hand totals 14 it becomes 4, and like that it goes.
When playing Live Baccarat the betting is quite self-explanatory. There are three areas on the table that bets can be placed on. There is the dealer space, the player space, and then there is an area for a tie. If you think that the dealer is going to win a round, you would want to put your money in the dealer space, and you would follow the same logic if you thought a different outcome was more likely.
Something important to be aware of is that not all of the betting options are created equally. The odds differ greatly with the tie option, for example, because it is far less likely for that outcome to happen. To place your bet all you need to do is put the amount that you want to wager on the appropriate space and wait for the result.
Baccarat is a fun game that has been enjoyed by casual gamblers and high rollers, alike for many years. Here at SuperLenny our live Baccarat options are among the most popular games we have, and the reason is that it is at once engaging and straightforward.
