Online casinos offer you a mind-boggling variety of online gambling options. One of the leading online casino games is baccarat. Baccarat owes its origins to Europe and is quickly becoming one of the most popular online casino games on the circuit. The main reason behind the popularity of baccarat is that it is easy to learn and fun to play. Add to it the high payouts that you can win and you have a heady cocktail in your hands.
Online baccarat is played with six decks. There are two hands dealt. One is for the player and the other for the banker. The dealing of cards will be two cards each to the player and banker. The aim of online baccarat is to guess which hand among the two will have a higher score. The important rule to be kept in mind in connection to this is that the highest score in online baccarat cannot exceed 9 or be negative.
While playing online baccarat, you can bet either on the player, the dealer, on a Tie or a combination of all of the above. The last option enables you to minimize your losses when you cannot get a clear picture of which way the game is proceeding. When you think that neither the player nor the dealer can reach the figure of 9, you bet on Tie. The player gets to draw first and there is a reshuffling of cards after dealing out each hand. The player gets to draw a third card if the players total is between 0 and 5 and the bankers total is between 0 and 7. That is not the case if the bankers total exceeds 7 or the players total goes above 5. Now the banker gets to draw the card. If the bankers total is already between 7 and 9, then they cannot draw another card. But if the total of the first two cards happen to be 0, 1 or 2, he can draw another card.
Now for the rules that determine whether you win or not. In online baccarat, you win if you can guess which hand, the players or the bankers, will have the higher score. If you think both of them will have the same total, you can bet on a Tie. For example, if you bet either on the player or the banker with $5, and you guess correctly, you win your money back along with an additional $4.75. 5% is subtracted from your winning sum. If your bet has been on a Tie, in which the odds are a lot higher and hence the risk, if you win, you get back your $5, along with nine times the value of your bet, which in this case will be $45.
But your guess can go off the track as well. In online baccarat, you lose if you bet on the player and the bankers hand has the higher score. If the player and the banker have unequal hands in terms of score and you have bet on a Tie, you stand to lose as well. The wager is a push if you have bet on the player or the banker and they have equal scores, that is, a Tie. To place your bets, click on which option you want to bet on: player, banker or Tie. Then you click on the betting chips on the lower right hand corner of your screen. They get added to your betting amount. If you want to reduce the betting amount that you have already selected, click on the chip and the return to the lower right hand corner.
