Sophisticated Baccarat Casino Games

Baccarat is one of the oldest casino games, and it is known to be the favourite of James Bond. With refined, elegant simplicity that still manages to be really exciting, this is not surprising. Punto Banco is the simplest version, and is the favourite in Macau.

This table game is thought to have originated in Italy, and Punto and Banco means Player and Banker in that language. Interestingly, in spite of these names, this is the only card game where you can't make any moves to affect the hands that were dealt, and neither can the dealer. This adds to the fun though and the element of chance heightens the suspense. 

Playing Punto Banco

Like most casino games, in Baccarat casino online, you need to bet on the outcome at the very start of the round. In this case, you'll be betting on whether the Player or the Banker hand total will be higher, or if they will tie.

Once you've done that, the dealer will give out two cards to each hand. Royal cards and 10s are worth 0, while the A to 9 are worth their pip values. The totals are determined by adding the cards together, and then dropping the 10-unit.

For example, a hand with an 8 and a 4 is worth 2, not 12. That means that the highest possible total in this casino game is 9. This is known as a Natural and wins automatically.

When are Extra Cards Dealt in Baccarat?

There are specific times in Baccarat when either hand will get a third card. Our online casino does all of this for you, in a totally fair and secure way, so you don't need to worry or spend any time thinking about it at all.

At the end of the round, when both hands are Standing, they are compared to see who the winner is. If you bet on the wrong hand or incorrectly predicted a tie, you lose everything. Successfully backing a Player or Banker hand gets you a 1:1 return, less 5% commission in the case of the Banker.

Winning on a tie bet gets you an incredible 8:1 return, but be careful – the House Edge here is over 14%. With greater risk, after all, comes greater reward!

Strategy Tips for Baccarat Casino Online

Baccarat is a lot more like online Roulette than other card games; your tactics play out in how you bet rather than in any moves you make. With that in mind, remember the usual things such as only wagering what you can afford to lose, and sticking to a set budget. As well as this, you can try the Martingale betting strategy.

Martingale Betting

This strategy works well for any casino games where there are two outcomes that each have a 50-50 chance of occurring, or an almost-50-50 chance. Essentially, you need to double your wager whenever you lose, and halve it whenever you win.

This sounds counter-intuitive, but if you play for long enough this way, you will recoup your losses and make a small profit. Just as with Outside bets in online Roulette, if you use this strategy with either the Punto or Banco hand, you can be really successful.

When you want something that is not quite as taxing as developing Blackjack strategy but you still want to play cards, Baccarat is the perfect solution. Try it at Spin Casino, and you'll see exactly what we mean!
