Baccarat is a game that is much simpler than many people think. However, since it is a fast paced game, it is important for all players to have a complete understanding of the rules and the betting options that are used. There are basically three betting options that can be selected by the player. Those that are wagering will bet on the banker hand, the player hand or that those two hands will be a tie.
The game starts by selecting a wager, which will be placed using Ethereum. The amount is depicted through the use of casino chips. Players will then select what hand they will be betting on and will place their chips in the appropriate spots on the table.
The goal of the game is to bet on the hand that will have the closest value to 9. It is possible that the hand values will be tied, but any experienced players will know enough to avoid the tie bet. Even though this bet does come with attractive payouts, it is considered a sucker bet due to the very high house edge.
After bets are placed, there will be two cards dealt to the banker hand and the player hand. The total value of these hands will be announced. All 10 cards and face cards will be worth zero and all remaining cards are worth face value. If the total of the hand is more than 10, 10 will be subtracted from the total. For example, if the cards are a 9 and a 6, the total is 15.
The resulting value of the hand is then 5. To win, players must have bet on the hand that has the closest value to 9. If that bet is the banker bet and those is where the bet was placed, players will have to pay a 5% commission on the winning amount.
Alternative Game Variations
Since not every player will have a large Ethereum bankroll, some sites will support mini baccarat. This is played in the same manner as standard Baccarat, but there are lower betting limits that are offered. The Baccarat table is also a bit smaller. Other than these differences, all other aspects of the game remain the same.
Mini baccarat is a great game selection for those that are just starting to enjoy baccarat with ethereum as they will risk losing less money and will still have all the same betting options as the standard game.
