Baccarat Online At Gaming Club Canada
Baccarat is a casino game that’s enjoyed the world over thanks to its combination of thrills, pace, favourable odds and straightforward gameplay. Whether you’re an experienced player or new to the game, there’s plenty to enjoy when playing baccarat and you can find the best online baccarat games right here at Gaming Club.
How To Play Baccarat
One of the reasons players love baccarat is that it’s an easy casino game to play, with simple betting options and gameplay that keeps the thrills coming thick and fast. And playing baccarat online is no different.
The rules of baccarat are really quite simple. At its heart, this is a comparison game in which players bet on the outcome of a draw of cards; whether the dealer’s hand or the player’s hand will win, or whether the result will be a tie.
Once the bets are placed, the dealer will deal the cards face up, two each for themselves and the player. The aim is to achieve a hand as close to 9 as possible, with the closest being the winner. If the hand that you bet on wins, then the banker will pay out your winnings.
In every round of online baccarat there are 2 hands are in play in every round. They are the player and the banker’s, or dealer’s hands, although you may also see them referred to as Punto and Banco.
The names are only given for the sake of playing the casino game as neither the player nor the dealer has any say in what happens on the table. Players are free to bet on either hand to win, or on the hands to tie. More cards may be added to either hand, although it is determined by the values of the hands, and not by any decision on your or the dealer’s part.
The round will begin as soon as you have placed your bet and clicked the play button. Knowing how much you stand to win on each bet could help you decide which hand to back. If you bet on the Player - or Punto - and that hand wins, it pays out 1:1.
If you bet on the Banker - or Banco - and that hand comes out tops, you get a 1:1 payout less 5% commission, or 95% of your wager amount. With 1:1 payouts, one of which is slightly less due to commission, offered by the first 2 bets, it is understandable if you think that the 3rd betting option offers similar payouts. We can assure you that it does not.
If you bet on the player’s hand to tie with the banker’s hand, and the round of online baccarat does, in fact, result in a draw, you are paid out a fantastic 8:1. This higher potential return reflects the higher risk of betting on a tie.
In baccarat, number cards up to nine are worth their face value, while tens, jacks, queens and kings are worth zero and an ace is worth one. If the value of the player’s hand is worth five or less then they will be dealt a third card. If the player sticks on their hand, because the value is over five, then the dealer will also be dealt another card if their hand is worth five or less.
If a hand is worth more than ten, then the first digit is ignored. For example, if the player’s hand is worth sixteen, then it is counted as six.
Play The Best Baccarat Online
The action in baccarat, which has been relished by players for 300 years and counting, is cutthroat. Some might even say it is ruthless. You see, whereas other card games such as online blackjack or online video poker give you some room to make various moves, baccarat has none of that. You place your bet and wait for the big reveal; no strategy or card counting required!
The suspense and thrill of online baccarat will not disappoint if your bet wins. This is a casino game that has become a favourite among high profile players at casinos all the way from from Montreal to Macau.
