There is some kind of mystery which surrounds the casino gambling game of Baccarat which seems to have been promoted by land based casinos who often have gambling on baccarat in a separate area from the rest of the casino and insist on very high minimum stakes but with the coming of online casinos all of that is out of the window. It remains a fact however that gambling on baccarat is not as popular as it in fact should be probably due to the lack of understanding of the game which we must agree is a little complicated at first sight. In reality however there are only three possible bets in baccarat gambling and unusually for a card gambling game there is no choice in how the cards are played; there are strict rules a bit similar in a way to blackjack where the dealer must draw to 16 or under and must hold on 17 or above. Due to these strict rules there is no discretion about playing the cards so it makes no difference that the dealer in fact plays both the hands in the game. As we said earlier when gambling on baccarat there are only three possible bets, one for the banker to win, one for the player to win and the third one for the result to be a draw and with no strategy involved it is a gambling game of pure luck. We carry a full description of how to play Baccarat on our baccarat page here at gambling.ie which can be accessed through the casino tab at the top of the page which we suggest you read before playing but the only slight difficulty is the value and counting of the cards but once explained it is not at all difficult. Baccarat gambling can be exciting and fun so try a few hands at free baccarat and see how quickly you can pick it up.
