Baccarat Like You Have Never Played It Before
13 Sep 2015
Baccarat, a free online game by SkillOnNet, does a good job of replicating a real-life casino experience via the use of advanced graphics and high-quality sound.
In the past Baccarat was a game for the ultra-rich. In fact, even in casinos, it used to be closed off to the public. It was a badge of honor to be able to play Baccarat. This was due to the fact that, the odds of winning at Baccarat are higher than other casino games. Therefore, casino owners preferred only the rich to play since they tend to wage higher bets. As a result, this allowed the house to still win most of the time.
Thankfully, Baccarat is now available to the public and SkillOnNet has done a fantastic job of creating an excellent version of the game with thousands of enthusiasts. Baccarat is unique in the sense that it is played between the banker and player using a standard deck of cards. To win at Baccarat, you must correctly predict who, out of the player or banker, will draw cards with a value closest to nine. Alternatively, it is possible to bet on a draw/tie.
Each card has a certain value. For instance, cards from 0-9 are counted at their face value, 10-K has a value of zero, and Aces have a value of zero. When adding up the cards the tenth digit does not count. This ensures that the score for each hand stays between zero and nine. For example, the player gets a nine and eight; although this totals 17, it would count as seven. In the situation of a tie between player and banker, only the tie bets pay, while bets on either the banker or player are reimbursed.
To be honest, it does not matter whether you find the rules confusing or not. Just bet on the banker, player, or a tie. Due to the lack of skill required to play Baccarat, it has proven incredibly popular all around the world. It is unbelievable that SkillOnNet has been able to produce such a realistic game for the masses. When you start the game, all you have to do is select the size of your bet: Place it on the player, banker, or a tie, and then click the deal button. In a few seconds, the game will automatically tell you whether you won or not.
