Royal Vegas is a highly recommended casino to play online baccarat, offering an excellent selection of exciting baccarat games available for your entertainment. Also known as punto banco, baccarat is one of the oldest and popular table games around the world especially in Canada.

History and origins of baccarat

The history of Baccarat is linked to an air of mystery and was originally a game played by international spies and gentleman killers. Its first origins date back to the 13th century in Italy though numerous sources show that it was also influenced by the Chinese game Pai Gow. The game travelled to France in the early 14th century by soldiers who returned there after the war. The game became popular amongst the social elite until the 18th century when King Louise Phillip declared it was illegal to play it.

How to play baccarat

Regardless of which the baccarat version you may play, these basic rules remain constant. You can choose to bet on the player’s hand, the bankers (not the casino) or the actual result. The three outcomes that can be achieved are either the player’s hand or the banker wins or both hands result in a tie. The odds of a tie bet is 8 to 1 whilst for the Banker and player the odds are 1 to 1.

With this in mind:

  • Select the bet amount
  • Click the Banker, Player or Tie buttons
  • The cards will slide from the shoe facing up and the win will be displayed

Baccarat is played with a standard deck of 52 cards and each card is assigned a value. Card 2 to 9 are worth their face value 10, Jack Queen and King are worth 0 points while Aces are worth 1 point. A hand with a 6 and 8 would be worth 14 and the highest value of a hand in baccarat is 9.
