Baccarat is a popular classic casino card game of chance, which is beginner-friendly due to not requiring much knowledge or skill. The game is considered to be one of the fairest casino games, because it has a very low house edge.
Cards from 2 to 9 are worth their number values in points, while all face cards (J, Q, K, A) and 10s come with a value of zero.
The goal of the game is to get the highest number possible, a 9, while trying to avoid the lower numbers. If the player’s number is higher than the dealer’s, they win. If the numbers are equal, it is a tie. If the dealer’s number is higher, the casino wins.
