Bet with Online Baccarat at Casino Época
Baccarat is one of the 3 big traditional casino games that are still being enjoyed many years after they were invented, with the other 2 being Blackjack and Roulette. While this game has a reputation for being for high rollers, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Casino Época has it available for players of every betting preference, and invites you to have some fun with it online, or play mobile casino games on your smartphone or tablet today!
Which Bet Did Bond Prefer?
Baccarat is known even to those who’ve never played it thanks to the publicity it gained as the casino game of choice for James Bond, and it originated hundreds of years ago, making its first appearance in the 15th century. We don’t know if the French brought it into being, or whether we have the Italians to thank, but the game’s name in both languages means Zero. If you’ve ever played the game you’ll know the significance of the zero, since this is what the 10s and face cards are worth.
Play for Free or Real Money Rewards
You can play Baccarat totally free if you want to, and practice until you are 100% certain you know what’s going on. It is a very easy casino game to learn, but familiarising yourself with it before you start betting is always a good idea.
How the Game’s Action Unfolds
All of the numbered cards are taken at their face value, which sees the Aces being worth 1 point, the 2s all counting for 2 points, the 3s giving you 3 points, and so on. The 10 and the face cards aren’t worth anything, and you don’t have to worry about suits at all, since they play no part in the game whatsoever.
You will have a choice of 3 bets, and can wager on the Banker hand winning, the Player hand managing to prevail, or a Tie occurring between the 2 hands. It is very important for you to remember that the Banker and Player hands are those in name only: you cannot influence anything for the Player hand, and we have nothing to do with the Banker hand. Your wager will regard which of the hands will get 9, or as close to it as possible, since this is the top score for the game.
Each hand will be dealt 2 cards, and the totals of these will be announced. The points cannot exceed 9, and should it do so, the left-hand digit falls away: a 6 of Spades and 5 Hearts, equalling 11, becomes 1, and a 9 of Diamonds and 3 of Clubs will have a value of 2 points.
Place Your Bets
The rest of the rules of the game are viewable online, but, thanks to the top-of-the-line Microgaming software running the games at our site, you don’t have to commit these to memory in order to start playing. The game action will take place automatically, and is guaranteed to be fair.
