History of Baccarat
Baccarat or Baccara is a card game played at Land-based Casinos and these days on Online Casinos. It is all about comparing card game played between two hands, the « player » and the « banker« . Each baccarat coup (round of play) has three possible outcomes: « player » (player has the higher score), « banker« , and « tie« . There are three popular variants of the game: punto banco « North American baccarat », baccarat chemin de fer or « chemmy », and baccarat banque or à deux tableaux. In punto banco, each player’s moves are forced by the cards the player is dealt. In baccarat chemin de fer and baccarat banque, by contrast, both players can make choices.
The winning odds are in favor of the bank, with a house edge no lower than around 1 percent.
