Baccarat is a popular casino card game that is also playable in online casinos, it is believed that Baccarat was introduced to France from Italy during the reign of Charles VIII of France (ruled from 1483-1498) and it is similar to Faro and to Basset.

Baccarat is a simple game, with only three possible results, 'Player', 'Banker' and 'Tie'. The term 'Player' does not refer to the customer and the term 'Banker' does not refer to the house, they are options with a customer can bet on.

There are three accepted variations of the game: baccarat chemin de fer, punto banco and baccarat banque. Punto Banco is strictly a game of chance, with no skill or strategy involved; each player's moves are forced by the cards the player is dealt. The other two variations, baccarat chemin de fer and baccarat banque, both players can make choices which allows skill to play a large part.

Baccarat, is actually pronounced 'back ah rah', in Baccarat, cards 2-9 are worth face value, 10's and face cards (J, Q, K) are worth zero (note that 10 modulo 10 is equal to zero), and Aces are worth 1 point.
