Baccarat is yet another popular card game that has gained the interest of countless player around the world. The game originated in France where it received the name of Baccarat.
However the game was also exported to countries outside of France where the name has changed to yet another version called Puntobanco. Although no matter the name given to this game, the rules and regulations and the method in which it is played remains constant.
There are various versions of the Baccarat game that can be played in online casinos. This will depend on the preference of the individual player whether they prefer to play with an automated computerised dealer in the virtual game or the Live Australian Baccarat should they desire the real casino feel from the comfort of their own home. Either way the objective remains the same; to place bets on a hand which they presume will reveal to be the winning hand based on the total number of points of the cards. There are three designated areas where a player must place their bets before the dealer begins dealing.
These are the Player / Punto area, the Bank / Banco area or the Tie. The ‘Tie’ refers to the a bet where the player believes the total number of points of both the Player and Bank turn out to be equal. The point system is easy to calculate and understand. Any face cards and the ten card have a total of zero points while all other cards are calculated at face value whereby the 4 card has four points, the 8 card has eight points and so on and so forth. The tricky part begins in the dealing of the cards which will be in the hands of the dealer. It is up to him to follow the strict rules and regulations of the game in order to make sure that the game is played fairly. The areas in which the cards are dealt are solely in the two main hands of the Player and the Bank. Should the first two cards drawn in the player pile add up to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 0, the dealer is to daw yet another card in the Player section. Should however the points of the two cards add up to 6 or 7 then no more cards are dealt and the points stand. The same applies to the case where the points up to 8 or 9 where the cards stand and no more cards are dealt as these numbers are considered ‘natural’. On the other hand, when cards are dealt in the Bank section, the rules and method of dealing the cards are slightly different as this will also depend on the cards which have been dealt in the Player’s hand. In the case where the Player’s third card is 0, 1 or 2 then the Banker must draw another card. If the player’s third card is a 3, 4, 5, or. However the dealer will NOT draw on behalf of the banker if the player’s third card is a 7, 8 or 9 as the 8 and the 9 are natural numbers causing an immediate win.
The point system may seem confusing at first but the online Australian player need only place the bets while the rest is taken over by the dealer. The Live Australian Baccarat is one of the preferred Live All Australian Casino com Games as it enables the players to sit comfortably at their computer while still playing with the live dealers. Thanks to the collaboration that All Australian Casino com has with the land based Portomaso Casino which is located on the island of Malta, it gives Australian players the unique possibility of playing with a land based casino outside of Australia. The software being utilised in order to make this possible are of the highest standard and do not require players to download any software beforehand just as long as they are able to stream online through their internet browser. In order to access the main section of the Live All Australian Casino com, Australian online players would need to log into an account and enter the games in real mode. Once this is done, they are able to select from a number of tables of Baccarat (or Puntobanco as it is referred to in this online casino) whereby players will base their choice on the table limits they prefer. Upon clicking the desired game, players will be diverted to a new page which will reveal an imitation table of the Baccarat / Puntobanco game with the main designated areas of Punto (Player), Banco (Bank) and Tie where the online Australian player will place their bets. On the same screen, on the right hand corner, a small screen will appear with the live transmission being broadcasted from within the land based Portomaso Casino. The Live Australian Baccarat is in real live time which means that the cameras which are focusing on the table are not pre-recorded and are therefore never repeated. Online players will be able to view other players playing from within the land based casino, but all their own bets placed on their computer screen may only be viewed by that individual player. The players are given a specific amount of time to place their bets, and once the screen indicated that no more bets may be made, the dealer from within the Portomaso Casino will begin dealing the cards in the Punto and Banco section. Should a player have placed a bet on any of these hands ending in a win, the player is handed their winnings in the form of chips which are added to their account balance.
The Live Australian Baccarat is a unique opportunity for any online Australian player to play this fun and fast paced card game without the need to travel to a land based casino. The feel one gets from playing this game is both exciting and memorable as no other online casino offers this method of play from this particular land based casino.
