Baccarat is an Italian word which means zero and originated from Italy. The game refers to all the face cards and tens which has a value of zero. Since most internet casinos now offer live baccarat it goes without saying that it now ranks amongst the top casino games at any live casino!

During the middle ages the French nobility played this card game extensively, since then it has spread across Europe and the Americas.

As a casino game baccarat is well-liked by high rollers since it has a very low house edge. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to play it since it requires very little skill and it is also very easy to master. The table in itself comprises of fourteen seats. Each seat has its own number, numbering from one to fifteen. The number thirteen has been excluded since it is considered to be bad luck. Each baccarat table has a dealer better known as the croupier. As the cards are dealt the dealer makes the call on each hand.

The game can be played with six or an eight deck shoe. Each card from Ace to Nine has its own value. Cards that have a zero value are tens and face cards. When two cards have a value of more than ten, ten must be deducted from the two card totals first. The remaining card total is the card count.

Each hand consists of two cards. Cards 2 to 9 are worth face value whilst Aces count 1 point. A ''natural'' occurs when a player's cards total total 8 or 9. The best possible baccarat hand is A 9. If you cards total more than 9, your cards are added up. The only digit that is counted is the right hand digit. Let us assume you hold a 7 and 7. Your card total is 14, but your hand value is counted as 4. If your hand value totals zero for instance 3, 7 and 10 you have baccarat.

Lately most online casinos now offer Baccarat as a live casino game. You can play it against a live dealer which offers better odds.
