While there are 2 main versions of Baccarat played in land-based casinos, Punto Banco is the most popular, and the easiest to understand. At Lucky Nugget Casino you can try your hand at Classic Baccarat Squeeze or Speed Baccarat.
With Baccarat Squeeze, the cards are dealt face down and slowly revealed as the round progresses. The aim here is to draw out the maximum amount of tension out of the game before the cards are finally revealed.
With Speed Baccarat, the game is completely different. In this version, the cards are dealt face up and each round only lasts a maximum of 27 seconds. This is ideal for seasoned players who want to be able to bet on multiple rounds within a single playing session. Both games are based on the classic rules of Punto Banco. Here you have the option of betting on the Banker hand, the Player hand or on a Tie.
Once you have placed your bet, the dealer will deal the Player hand 2 cards and the Banker hand 2 cards. A third card can be drawn if required. Once all cards are dealt, the hand with the highest point score wins. In some ways, the game is a bit like Roulette in that once the bet is place, there is no way to influence the outcome of the game.
If you want to expand your betting options, you also have the ability to place an optional side bet at the start of the round.
Side bets act independently from the main bet and pay out even if your original bet is not a winner. With side bets you can choose to place a Pair Bet on the Player hand, on the Banker hand or on both the Banker and the Player. This means that if either of the hands is dealt a matching set of cards, you will automatically be paid out. Thanks to these innovative side bets you have extra chances of winning with every hand, and they add something new to playing the classic card game that has been a favourite with players for years.
