We All Love A Bit Of Baccarat, Right?

If you’ve never played baccarat before, you’re really missing out! Originating in Italy, Baccarat has become one of Canada’s most popular online games!

Generally played by the rich and extravagant, it’s appeared in various forms of media, from Casino Royale to Rush Hour 3. It’s a game of pure chance, with very little skill needed — hence why it’s become popular with the affluent and famous.

All is required from the player is to choose one of three options — dealer, player or draw. Cards are then drawn, and the winner is determined by the person holding the highest valued card. It’s as simple as that — a lot easier than blackjack.

The General Rules Of Baccarat!

Baccarat is a super simple game, but we’ll go through the basic info anyway:

  • The dealer dishes out four cards — two for the player and two for the dealer, both face-up
  • Card totals are then added up at face value — with face cards worth 10
  • Scores reset after 10. So, for example, if you were to hold a 6 and a king, you would hold a hand of six. If you held a 9 and 3, you would hold a value of 2.
  • The highest hand wins!

You don’t bet on yourself to win, no, you bet on whether the dealer or player will win. It’s honestly as simple as that.

You don’t even have to do any counting yourself — the dealer does it all!
