The ancient game of Baccarat is the best game for beginning gamblers because it is one of the easiest casino games to play! With the dealer in control of the decks or "shoe" at all times, the player only needs to focus on placing their own bets!

The object of the game is to wager on the hand (Bank or Player) which the Player feels will be closest to nine. The highest hand is nine, the lowest hand is zero. The hand closest to nine is the winner!
