What is Online Baccarat?

The rise in the popularity and sophistication of online gaming has made it possible to play virtually any game you would encounter in the great casinos of the world. Online Baccarat ranks as the most popular game of all. Its status as the favourite game of James Bond did a great deal to bring it to the world’s attention but it was a common private pastime of the French nobility in the 19th century even before gambling was legalised. In the past ten years, its popularity has surged in the USA, whose gamblers are rapidly catching up with the rest of the world, particularly the Far East.

Baccarat is a classic two-hander in which the Player has to beat the Bank by getting as close as possible to a hand that totals 9. Unlike in Online Blackjack, some of the cards in Baccarat are assigned unique identities. While the cards from 2-9 carry their face value, the 10 and the picture cards count for zero and the Ace is worth 1.

The game begins by placing a bet on either the Player’s or the Bank’s hand. Once the cards are dealt, if either hand totals 8 or 9 the round is over, but if either side has a 6 or 7 they will stand with what they have while if they have 0-5 they will draw a third card. The Bank will then also draw a third, depending on what the Player has drawn.

If the opening hand adds up to more than nine then the digit in the left-hand column is dropped: 5 plus 7 equals 12, so it is counted as 2.

How to Play Baccarat Online

Part of the excitement of the game is the adversarial element. The Player against the Bank is a classic underdog scenario. It can be hard to generate the same excitement when you know that you are playing against algorithms. But it is now possible to play baccarat online live. That means you are no longer playing against a computer with an automated random generator but with a genuine dealer. Technology has changed the nature of online casino baccarat games.

The way you play baccarat online is through a combination of old and new technologies. The dealer is filmed – usually by multiple video cameras – in a secure location that has all the trappings of a real casino for maximum atmosphere. They are filmed in real time as they deal the cards and you are connected to the action via high definition streaming over the internet.

Optical Character Recognition is used to convert all the dealer’s physical transactions into sharable data so that your experience closely replicates that of the real thing. What’s more, in a conventional casino, the number of betting positions is limited to just seven seats but online it can be limitless.
