Baccarat is a very simple game in which the player bets on one of the three available bets: player, banker or tie. After the players have bet, the rest of the game is out of your control. The game is as volatile as flipping a coin. This makes it very exciting, but also easy to apply an optimal strategy.
To play baccarat successfully, you should above all use a betting system, keep an eye on your bankroll and know that you don’t have to bet every round.
It is always very pleasant to play and you can sit back and relax wonderfully because the rules are very simple. In fact, you only have to or can make a few decisions, because everything in this game is virtually predetermined.
You only need to have a basic understanding of the available bets – and you’re already perfectly prepared for hours of entertainment.
In baccarat, players have the option of betting on either the player or the banker. Gamblers can also bet that players and dealers will end up in a tie, but this bet has very poor chances of winning and should be avoided.
You place the bets in the corresponding betting box on the table before the dealer deals the cards to the players, so you have to make the decision, so to speak, before you see the cards. In total, there are only three bets to consider in the game, with no option to add another or additional side bet.
The payout percentages for these three bets are as follows:
- Player bet pays 1: 1.
- Banker bet pays 1:1
- Tie bet pays 9:1
The object of baccarat is to get as close as possible to the game’s highest hand “9”.
- Players bet on whether the banker or player hand wins or on a tie. Once the bets are placed, players can only watch how the game unfolds.
- The dealer deals two cards to the player field and two cards to the banker field.
- The dealer evaluates both hands depending on the rules of the baccarat game, including the distribution of additional cards.
- The dealer announces which hand or bet has won.
