Glossary of Mini baccarat

punto banco table

Real casino players know this wonderful game. Baccarat is one of the most famous and traditional card games, that allows players to compete against other players and the house. Mini baccarat has almost the same rules but the game is played with less players. In normal baccarat each player is taking turns to be the dealer but in mini baccarat there is only one dealer.

The aim of the game is to guess the best hand; own or the dealer’s. Therefore the player does not need to always have the best hand, but just to guess which one will be the best one. The player has to choose banco or punto meaning dealer or player. Placing the bets on certain areas gives the idea of which one you are choosing. The player can also bet on tie, which still allows players to place their bet on either banco or punto. If played vicely, you can really win nice amounts in your pocket. Baccarat tables can normally be found in the high stake section of casinos but mini baccarat is traditionally placed on the casino floor. Online mini baccarat gives you the same opportunity to play with fewer players and earn extra cash.
