Baccarat rightly stands among the well-known and played casino games, mostly among high stakes players around the world, but particularly in Asia, famous for its around 1% home advantage. There are a lot of myths and mystery surrounding this card game, especially when it comes to the bags of money filling the tables and rooms in the back of the casinos. This is actually a disguise of a really simple way of gambling. Still many are afraid to play. The way bets are placed and the approach to the game are really simple, unlike proceeding to the final outcome of the draw and who wins it. In order to improve that part of the game some efforts have been made such as the “No Commission Baccarat” where the odd fee is removed from the winning banker bets. Well, players just don’t go away with that, though, as they pay the price.The BasicsBaccarat is a board card game, very similar to blackjack in the way cards are dealt. There are two sides competing - the player and the banker, but a tied outcome is also possible. Participants have to make a choice which hand (either player’s or banker’s) will end up a winner between the two ones dealt on the table. The dealer plays the control role of this game. Each side can choose on which hand to bet, because those only carry a name of a betting possibility. As bets have already been placed the dealer does his job. Both sides get two cards, nowadays usually face up. Using some level of strategy is possible, but doesn’t necessarily guarantee a win.
