It is difficult to determine where and when exactly baccarat originated. The game has probably been played since the Middle Ages and, like so many games, originated in the south of Europe. Baccarat means zero, in both French and Italian, so it cannot be said with certainty where the game will be today. One says that it is French in origin, also considering the amount of gambling that originated in France.
In most online casinos you will find baccarat in the original version and no high stakes are required anymore.
Every game has some rules that we have to follow for playing correctly. Baccarat is also has different kind of rules.
There are two sides in baccarat: Player and Banker. In each hand, the side holding the highest point value wins. The highest possible point count is 9, and face cards and 10s count as 0. All other cards are worth their value (1-9).
When you add up the values of the cards in a baccarat hand you only pay attention to the final digit. For example, 13 counts as 3 and 19 counts as 9.
Another version of baccarat is the mini baccarat. This is played with the same rules but the way of sharing is slightly different. The game is therefore even faster and more dynamic and the payout ratios are no different.
Partly because of the simple game and the rules, it is difficult to talk of strategies to win at baccarat. You just have to play the game and try to win. What is important to know before you start the game is how the distribution is when you win.
