Baccarat is a well known casino game. The game can be played at physical casino or at online casinos via virtual means or a live dealer. The roots of the game are not really clear as there are lots of arguments of where the game originated from. Some people claim the game came into place in the 19th century. However, this is disputed by another group of people who strongly believe that this game was brought into place in the 15th century by soldiers who returned from war. This was the brutal Franco-Italian war which occurred when Charles VIII was in power. The game is said to have been brought to France from Italy. It is a game of card comparison involving two hands, the player and the banker.

The game is played with all the cards except the Joker which is irrelevant to the game. The cards 2 to 9 maintain the number values while the cards 10, Queen, Jack and King amount to a zero value. The ace card on the hand has a value of 1 point. The summation of hands of the game is not straightforward. For example, addition of 6 and 7 would result in 3 rather than 13. Hence, the highest value of a hand is 9.

The game is widely played in three variants with the Punto banco being the most commonly played of all variants. The other variants include chemin de fer and banque.

Punto Banco

The principles of this game give indications of the likely possibility of the game originating from France. The name itself is of French origin with Punto meaning player and banco meaning banker. The game is played with a shoe which consists of about six to eight decks of cards generally shuffled together. The first card is usually burned. Then two cards are dealt face up to both hands beginning with the player then the banker.

The dealer generally calls the total. If either of both hands or both hands have a total of 8 or 9, the round is finished and the results are announced. The results could either be a win or a tie. However, if neither the banker nor the player has a total of 8 or 9, the tableau of drawing rules is consulted to determine if a third card would be drawn. The player’s comes before the banker’s rules. The value of the player’s cards determines the possibility of the banker drawing a third card.
