Giving Consideration to the Game of Baccarat

If we do not take into consideration the classy suites, the plush curtains and the hush, rich and classy atmosphere, the game of baccarat offers the best possible casino experience for the average player. Baccarat also bears a good casino edge, which makes it possible for a player to perform well in the game without getting bankrupt themselves. The North American variation of Baccarat and European Baccarat variation and the Chemin De Fer from France are the more modern incarnation of baccara, which is an Italian version of baccarat.

The word "baccara" means zero in Italian. The roots of baccarat can be traced back to an ancient Etruscan myth. According to the story, a virgin had to throw a nine sided dice to choose on whatever she will do. If the dice produces an 8 or 9, she would become a priestess. If the dice produces a 6 or 7, she would not participate in any religion related gathering. If the dice produces any other number, she would throw herself to the sea. The Italian variation of baccara was well-known and loved among the French nobility during the end of the fifteenth century.

Baccara then produced the European baccarat variation, which is still played in casinos in Europe today as well as the Chemin de Fer from France. The North American variation of baccarat made its American debut in Las Vegas, Nevada casinos in 1950 with the help of Francis Tommy Renzoni, who introduced the game from Havana, Cuba. But even to this day, the game of baccarat still bears an air of mystery around it.

In U.S. based casino facilities, there is still a separate area designated for baccarat, hidden away from the rest of the gaming floor by curtains. Participants and the baccarat dealer in the game are dressed up formally and wagering limit is bigger compared with other casino table games. Baccarat also became famous because of the James Bond films, which shows scenes where Bond is enjoying a night out in a casino while playing baccarat.

In order to attract ordinary players, casinos decided to make a small scale version of high-roller baccarat, which is mini-baccarat. The game of mini-baccarat is played on a smaller gaming table inside the gaming area of the casino and it possess a lower wagering limit compared with the high-roller baccarat. But if you have the money, it is still advisable to play high-roller baccarat because compared to mini-baccarat, it has a slower game pace. The advantage of a slower game pace is that you can take your time in deciding your next move in the game and what will be your decision in a certain situation in the game.
