The rules of the Baccarat game – Short History
There is a lot of debate about the origin of this game – is that France, or is that Italy? Many claim that the game comes from Italy, from a player named Felix Falguiere, who gave the name "Baccarat" which means “zero”. It is also said that the game was played for the first time with a deck of Tarot cards in ancient times.The game would have appeared in France around the 1490s, where it was played only by nobility. Finally, Baccarat evolved in the European version and in the French game "Railway".
Baccarat game is much easier to find online than in a traditional casino. The advantage in online casinos is that they have low betting limits. There are some that will have very high limits,although it is not difficult to find those with reasonable limits. All games are based on the same rules, so do not expect any surprise from this point of view. The added advantage is that you avoid crowding in traditional casinos, if you are not the type to like.
The rules of the Baccarat game are rigorous and complex. The objective of the game is to place a bet on the hand that, when closing that hand,it will be the closest to the value 9, without exceeding it. As same as in the game of Blackjack, the cards have a specific value in Baccarat: all the cards with a value of 10 as well as the Jack, Queen and King represent 0, the Ace represents 1, and the remaining cards (from 2 to 9) represent the value on their face.
There will always be two hands, no matter how many players are: the banker's hand and the player's hand. Both, the banker and the player are given two cards, and depending on the value of those cards, a third card can be awarded. If the value of the hand is higher than 9, the left figure of the number is excluded. For example, if you receive a 6 and an 8, the total would be 14, but after excluding 1, only 4 remains.
Your mission as a player is to bet on the banker's hand, the player's hand or a draw, which means that the two hands are linked. The winning odds on a bet on the banker's or player's hand is 1 to 1, and the winning draw bets are paid by 8 to 1 or 9 to 1 depending on where you play. Although it is more advantageous to win at a draw bet, chances are too small for this to happen.
Rules for drawing cards in Baccarat:
- The maximum number of cards in a Baccarat hand is three.
- If the banker or player has an 8 or a 9 from the two cards drawn, no more will be drawn.
- The player will always draw when the hand is 5 or less, unless the banker has a natural card, and holds a 6 or a 7.
- The banker draws if the card is a:
3 and the player's hand has a 6 or a 7, or if he draws anything other than a face card or an 8;
4 and the player's hand has a 6 or a 7, or if he draws any card between 2 and 7 inclusive;
5 and the player's hand has a 6 or a 7, or if he draws any card between 4 and 7 inclusive;
6 and the player draws a 6 or a 7.
- The banker always remains if the player is 6 or 7.
The rules of the Baccarat game
The rules of the Baccarat game are made so, that almost all decisions are made automatically. There is not much need for systems or strategies, since the outcome of the game is greatly influenced by how lucky a player is, but there are a number of moves that can be made to steer the game in a favorable direction.
We invite you to follow us further, because the following articles will develop potential strategies and tips.
Many players mistakenly believe that the course of the game in previous rounds can help to determine its subsequent results. To track how many hands of the Player, Banker and Drawers have left the game, participants use scoring boards. This practice is widely known as "Pattern Recognition" and the casinos have no complaints about it. Normal gambling establishments give their players the sheets with pens, and online casinos have special windows for this, which show the outcome of previous rounds. Gambling establishments understand that this practice will not affect the game. This tactic also can not be called the winning one, as the previous results are not related to the subsequent ones.”Pattern recognition" is a rather complex system. You need to know that the red circles in it indicate the Banker's win, the blue circles indicate the Player's win and the green circles indicate the Draw. Tracking starts from the upper left edge and goes all the way to the bottom of the board. Then it continues from the right edge to the very top of the board. Below are the most recognizable images.
The "Big Road" indicates the sequence of Player and Banker winnings. The draw is marked by a green line passing through previous wins of the Player and the Banker. Player Pairs are marked with a blue dot in the bottom right corner and Banker Pairs are marked with a red dot in the top left corner.
This image originates in the upper left corner from the Player's win marked by the blue dot. The Banker's victory is indicated by the red dot. A new column starts each time a Player or Banker win changes. There are 6 rows in the table. If the game had more than 6 consecutive wins, the countdown points move to the right, creating a so-called "Dragon Tail". This is the basic image, and everyone else is already getting away from it.
"Boy with a Big Eye is a difficult statistical way of tracking how the bets win. In this system, red marks indicate repetitions, blue marks indicate chaotic winnings. Keep in mind that red and blue have nothing to do with betting on the Player or Banker.
The "Big Eye Boy" table starts with the entry of the hand after the first entry in the second column of the "Big Road". Each "Big Eye Boy" entrance, as well as the two following systems, is based on the results of the "Big Road". Using this system may seem difficult and confusing. For clarity, just look at the latest results of the Big Road. After that, move one cell to the left upwards. If the upward shift shows no change, make the mark in red, and if there were any changes, make the mark in blue.
The Little Road. Using the "Little Road" is similar to using the "Big Eye Boy". In contrast to the previous system, this system allows the release for one column to the left of the "Big Road" column. It starts with the hand that goes after the first one. It starts in the third column of the "Big Road". The red circles indicate that the first and third columns to the left of the new column in the "Big Road" are the same depth, the blue circles indicate that they are different.
The trajectory along which you move according to the "Little Road" (remembering the last entrance to the "Big Road") includes moving two cages to the left and up. Make a red circle if the move does not lead to any change, blue if it does.
The Cockroach Pig ."Cockroach Pig” is the third road that passes through two columns to the left of the “Big Road” column. Otherwise, this system works on the principle of "Little Road". It enters after the first entrance in the fourth column of the "Big Road". Here you can compare the first and fourth columns to the left of the new "Big Road" column. Once again, the red circle means the same depth, the blue shows the difference. To mark this image, look at the last entrance to the "Big Road" and move three cells to the left. Then move upwards. If you have not noticed any changes, mark the square in red, if it is - blue.
Regardless of the way you use these images (it can be a self-deduction or digital display), you must remember that they are based on superstition and a false sense of control, which are part of gaming psychology.
Good Luck with the Game!
