Baccarat is a simple and easy to play game with only three possible outcomes i.e. 'Player', 'Banker', and 'Tie'. In the game of baccarat, the main aim of the player is to get a total card value as nearer to nine as possible without exceeding it. In this game, up to 15 players can play at a time and each player gets a chance to deal the cards at least once.
The main principle behind the game of baccarat is that the players can bet on the banker, player or tie positions. In baccarat game, two cards each are dealt in two hands on the baccarat table, one of which is the banker’s hand and other the player’s hand. The players participating in the game have to simply bet on the either hand that they think have a value closer to 9.
A card total of 9 is called a "natural" and cannot lose the game. A card total of eight is the second-best hand in baccarat. If both the player and banker have identical hands, then it's a tie i.e. neither the banker nor the player wins, but whoever bet on a tie wins the game.
