This casino game is available at many land-based and online casinos. While not as well-known as other table games like roulette and poker, live baccarat is still very popular with players, especially those who have learned how to play it properly. While the origins of the game aren’t clear, it’s been suggested that this game dates all the way back to the 19th century.
To play baccarat, the rules state that all betting on a particular hand needs to be done before the game begins. The objective of the game is to predict which hands will total closest to 9, either by betting on the player hand, the bank hand, or a tie.
