History of Baccarat
In Europe, Baccarat is one of the most
popular casino games. This is possibly due to its heritage
- the word baccarat is derived from the Italian word
Baccara, meaning zero, and refers to the zero value
given to all of the face cards and tens.
A long-time favourite of gamblers, an early version
was played with cards from a Tarot deck back in the
Middle Ages. Modern baccarat originated in Italy around
1490, and by the early 1500's it had become the game
of choice for the French nobility. Eventually baccarat
evolved into European Baccarat and the French game Chemin
de Fer. American Baccarat actually originated in England
and spread to the USA via South America. The version
of the game that is played today came from the Capri
Casino in Havana, Cuba.
When baccarat was introduced to Nevada
in the late 1950's, casinos tried to ascribe it the
glamorous aura associated with the European game. In
most casinos, baccarat is played in a roped-off area,
is closely monitored and sometimes even surrounded by
armed guards due to the often ludicrously high wagers.
While the grandiose atmosphere of a
baccarat game may attract high rollers, it is a simple
game of chance that involves little skill on the part
of the player or dealer:
Players sit in any of the 14 open seats at the
Each seat corresponds to a number on the layout,
one through 15, excluding a spot numbered 13 to avoid
Each table is serviced by three dealers.
The dealer standing in the middle is known as the
croupier or the caller.
The croupier makes the calls on each hand as they
are dealt, and directs the procedure of the game.
The other two dealers are responsible for the payoffs.
