Baccarat guide - Mini Baccarat
Mini Baccarat has the same rules as American Baccarat, the main difference is that it is played at a smaller table and has lower betting limits. Baccarat has always had a reputation of an exclusive game, the game for noble and wealth people. It requires a certain dress code and behavior at the table. That’s why many people have been afraid of bacarrat and avoid playing it. Mini Baccarat allows many players to enjoy the thrill and excitement of Baccarat at a much more relaxed environment.You can dress casually and table betting limits are affordable.
As I have already mentioned, the Mini Baccarat table is smaller than the table used in the American baccarat. It can be found in the main casino area. For more information read the Baccarat Table Layout section.
The croupier sits in front of the players at the opposite side of the table. He sits in the middle of the table in order to be able to reach all parts of the table. Just in front of the croupier there is a chip rack and a special numbered area to keep track of the commission players owe. Every number on the numbered area matches the number of the player's seat.
In Mini Baccarat the dealer is always the Banker and the Players never deal the cards in contrast to other Baccarat games.
Here are the main rules of Mini Baccarat:
- The players make wagers according to the Betting Rules.
- The croupier deals 4 cards face-up, 2 to the "Player" hand and 2 to the "Banker" hand.
- The croupier gives the third cards according to the Baccarat drawing rules
- The croupier compares the value of the "Player" and "Banker" hands.
- The croupier collects the losses and pays out the winnings.
You can enjoy Mini Baccarat in most land-based casinos, and it is also offered by many online casinos.
