If you are familiar with the Casino games, you would know about the oldest but the most famous games in the casinos around the globe. Yes! It is the Baccarat which is most liked by the Asians. On the face of it, the game looks like it is difficult but in reality it is the easiest game ever invented.
The format of the game differs considering the types of tables it is played on. If the game is played on the Big Table, the game is separated from the other games with the help of the rope. Special attention is being paid to the dressing of the players in this format and you can have the high table minimums in this case. Normally speaking, the table of the Baccarat is about the same size as that of the Craps and is dealt by 3 dealers. Around 12 to 14 players can play on the same table.
There is no restriction on the betting by player and dealer. They can both bet on the player or the banker. But the dealer usually bets on banker. The deal is rotated all around the table just like in the game of craps. In case, a player does not want to go for the deal, he may pass it on in the shoe as it is. If the banker is winning is continuously, the same person will keep on dealing until and unless the banker loses.
Two cards are dealt with faces down, placed under the shoe and the player bets on the other two cards which have faces down. The same player is allowed to see the cards and he gives the cards back to the dealer. The dealer then turns over the cards and the totals are being announced by the casino dealers. According to the totals, it is up to the dealer if he decides to get the third card being dealt.
Eventually, the winners are being paid by the dealers and the losing wagers are being collected out of the tray. Unlike to some other games, the player dealing the cards is only responsibly for turning over the cards.
Mini Baccarat does not differ from the big one in most of the rules but in this case, the dealer is responsible for turning over all the cards. This speeds up the game a little. There is no difference in the odds of the mini game and those of the big ones if the same deck number is assumed. In the mini game, the shoe has usually six decks of cards which change the odds a bit.
Another type of Baccarat is the Midi which is almost the same as the mini except for the fact that the size of its table is larger. You would find this type of table and hence the game in the high-limit room instead of the main floor in any casino. Depending upon the size of the table in each type, you may enjoy different styles of betting.
