There was a time when Baccarat gambling was reserved for the high rollers in a casino and it was considered an elite form of gambling but with the advent of online casinos gambling on Baccarat has become available to all for very modest stakes although at the live casino option the stakes are often a little bit more. Considering that gambling on baccarat is so simple it is surprising that it was ever considered an elite gambling form, there is no skill involved in the game and even the betting could not be simpler with only three possible outcomes. The strangest thing about gambling on Baccarat is that although there are two hands dealt which are called the player and the bank, both of the hands are played by the dealer who decides when to draw cards and when not to but as this has to happen following strict rules there is no room for discretion which is why Baccarat gambling lends itself to online casino play so well. As the person gambling you can bet on either hand to win or for the result to be a tie and that is as complicated as it gets. When you first start gambling on Baccarat at your chosen online casino you will wonder what is going on as the counting of the card value is a little strange. For example an 8 and a 7 in your hand has a value of 5 but a 4 and a 2 has a value of 6. The answer to this lies in the fact that once a total rises above ten when gambling on baccarat the first digit disappears so an 8n and a 7 which makes 15 becomes 5. You do not even have to know this to enjoy Baccarat gambling but you will understand more when you do.
