Hi my name is Charles and this is the basics of how to play Baccarat. Baccarat is a game that has a lot of different variations and the most common variation played in the United States is the one I’m going to be discussing today. Now this particular version of Baccarat is generally played at casinos and usually uses about six decks of cards that are shuffled together so there is really no way to count.
There is a very simple way that you play as shown right here and I’ve got a hand dealt out to start with. You have two basic sides, a player’s side and a banker’s side and I’ll be on the player’s side. What you need to do is you deal out one card to each player and then a second card to each player and then you turn the two cards over. These are then added together and a tens digit is dropped.
For example this would be a 14, but you would take away the 10 so this would leave 4. This here would be a 12 but you take away the 10 so it equals 2. Now if the player or the banker gets a total of 8 or 9 then no other cards are drawn, that’s the end. However, depending on what the total is for the player then other cards can be drawn. So for example the player has an initial total of from 0 to 5 then a single card would be drawn, so this is a 2 so there would be a single card that would come up.
Now the banker’s play depends on the banker’s hand and whether the player drew a card. So now that we know what card the player drew we can deal with the banker. If the player had not drawn a card then the banker draws if they have got 0 to 5.
If the player drew a 2 or a 3 and the banker draws they have a 0 to 4 and stands to have a 5 to 7. If the player drew a 4 or a 5 as I did the banker draws if they have a 0 to 5 and as it stands if they have a 6 to 7. Now this is a 4 which means that they would draw another card and that is another 10. Similarly this is going to continue on. If the player got a 6 or a 7 then the banker is going to draw if they have up to 6 and stand if they have a 7.
Now should the banker’s hand and the player’s hand be the same value at the end of the deal the crupia, that is the person who is running the game shall announce that there a tie and that all bets win. At that point all of the bets are played and you get ready for the next hand. Now basically in this particular case we would look at this as 4 and we would look at this as 2 5 is 7 so in this particular case the player would win and hooray I win.
Baccarat has a lot of different variations uses a lot more luck and a lot less skill. For that particular reason it is one of the best games to play at a casino and people can lose tens of thousands of dollars on a hand. If you have the money you can go ahead and give it a try. That’s how you play Baccarat.
