Baccarat (Italian: baccarà or baccarat) is a poker game and one of the most common gambling games in casinos. Baccarat originated in Italy, was introduced to France in the 15th century, and was circulated in Britain and France in the 19th century. Today, baccarat is one of the popular gambling games in casinos around the world. Among casinos in Macau, the number of baccarat tables is the largest among casinos worldwide.


Table Rules


There’s no strict limited on person in a baccarat game, In addition to the participation of 9 people (small tables) or 14 participants (large table, 7 sides on each side of the arc), the casino is free to participate in betting, it’s possible went up to 30+ person betting on a table in the same times.


However, when both of the Banker and Player betting limited exceed casino’s table limit (the limit amount is indicated on each table), the guest is only allowed to reduce the amount to the limit amount before game start. In addition to setting the maximum infrared, each table also has a minimum bet amount.

Betting Rules


There are only three possible outcomes, a Player win, a Banker win and a Tie, the dealer pretty much does all the work.


Here are some example to help you ace a baccarat game:


Player Hand: When first two cards total:



Draws a card




Natural -- Stands


Banker Hand


First two cards total:

Draws when player's third card is:

Stands when player's third card is:

















Natural -- Stands



Always draws


  • If either the Player or Banker is dealt a total of 8 or 9, both the Player or Banker stand and highest value win the round without any additional card are drawn.

  • If the Player’s value total is five or less, then the Player will receive another card. Otherwise, the player will stand.

  • If the Player stands, then the Banker hits on a total of 5 or less.

  • The final betting option, a tie game, pays out 8 to 1.




This is a pure guessing game. Which hand will win? The banker hand will win slightly more often -- 50.68 percent of all decisions, not including ties -- giving the house its 1.36 percent edge on player bets. But the house collects a 5 percent commission on winning banker bets, leading to the 1.17 percent house edge on banker.


Mathematicians long have suspected that baccarat, like blackjack, might be vulnerable to a card-counting system. But the best system yet developed appears to yield a slight edge to the bettor on the average of about one hand per eight-deck shoe. That's an edge not worth pursuing -- to have the advantage, the customer would have to count down hand after hand after hand, without playing, until this tiny advantage came to pass. The customer would lose more in time than he'd gain in the edge, and the casino would be unlikely to hold a seat for someone spending hours without placing a bet.


For the bettor, baccarat is a game of luck plus money management. Do not make bets too large for your available bankroll, and do not increase bets when losing. Making larger bets while chasing losses is a good way to go broke fast. If you're going to vary your bet size, increase it while winning and bring it down when losing. Set limits on your losses and stick to them.


If you sit down at a baccarat table with $100, tell yourself you're not going to leave with less than $50. Then, if you have a cold streak and you hit that $50 mark, walk away. An important part of casino survival is developing the discipline to leave a table while you still have money.


Learn to walk away with winnings, too. If you have a good run and build that $100 up to $150, try one of these two techniques. Either put the original $100 in your pocket and just play with the $50 in winnings, while keeping that $50 loss limit, or adjust your thinking to tell yourself you'll not walk away from the table with less than $125. Then stick to it.


The longer you play a game with a negative expectation, even one as narrow as 1.17 percent, the more likely it is that the casino will grind down your bankroll. Walk away from the table with at least part of that bankroll intact -- not just at baccarat, but at any casino game -- and you'll be surprised at how much more often you wind up a winner for the day.


Baccarat is not necessarily the most popular game in a casino, but it can be just as exciting as blackjack or craps. Though the organization of the game can seem strange at first, the tips in this article should have you placing bets in no time.
