Just like the other games within the All British Live Online Casino and the All British Online Casino Games, this Baccarat game is another of those popular table games that All British Online Casino is in the position to offer its online players. Therefore just like the All British Online Casino Roulette and the All British Online Casino Blackjack, this online casino can offer the game of Baccarat in two various versions which include the virtual and the Live version. Although there are two version of this game, the rules and regulations of both games are similar and the same as the land based casino version.
Sometimes also known as Puntobanco this game’s objective remains the same in both versions. The main aim of this table game is for online British players to place a bet on any or all of the designated areas trying to predict which hand will come up with the largest amount of points. The designated areas are divided into three parts as there are three different hands to choose from: Punto (Player), Banco (Bank) or Tie. The cards are dealt in only the main two areas (Punto / Player and Bank / Banco). The ‘Tie’ option is given in case the online player predicts that both sets of hands being dealt add up to the same number of points thus causing a tie. Of course bets placed on the ‘Tie’ produce less odds but a player still comes out a winner if his / her prediction of a ‘Tie’ comes true. All cards work on a point system just like the All British Online Casino Blackjack except that the points are slightly different to the Blackjack game. All picture cards which are King, Queen and Jack and the 10 card add up to zero (0) points each. All other cards are calculated at face value which means that a 4 card has four points, a 9 card has nine points, a 2 card has two points, and an Ace has one point and so on and so forth. Each of the two designated areas of Player / Punto and Banco / Banker is dealt between two or three cards following the set rules and regulations of the game. And this is where the tricky part of this game comes in. The dealer is the one who has to remember the specified and explicit rules of the game and make sure that the cards are being dealt correctly as depending on the first and second cards which are dealt will determine whether the hand will receive a third card or not. These specific rules and regulation of the Baccarat game may be found within the games themselves within the All British Online Casino Games or within the All British Live Online Casino depending on which version of the game the online player is playing. This game is usually a fast paced game but this may also vary according to which version of the game the online player is playing.
The virtual version of Baccarat which is to be found in the virtual All British Online Casino Games is played with an automated dealer and since there is no timer allocated to the game, the online player may choose how fast or slow paced the game will be. The screen being viewed by the online player is comprised of a full imitation of a standard Baccarat tableau. This includes the three designated areas (as described above) of where the online player will be placing his / her bets. Once the bets have been placed the online player will select ‘Deal’ from the options provided and the cards will automatically begin to be dealt. As the dealer is automated the cards will immediately be dealt and the winning hand will automatically and immediately be shown thus providing an online player with his / her winning if the right bet has been made.
In the live version of Baccarat or otherwise called Puntobanco, the game is played in a slightly different way although the rules and regulations of the game remain the same. The difference in the way it is played in the All British Live Online Casino is due to the fact that online players will be playing with live real dealers who would be dealing from within the land based Portomaso Casino. The best part about this is that players will be experiencing the same level of real live game play as if they were sitting within the Portomaso Casino themselves. This is made possible thanks to the connection this All British Online Casino has with the Portomaso Casino with the cameras which are located above the Puntobanco tables. An online player may select from a various number of table types on offer with this Puntobanco game depending on the minimum and / or maximum bets a player wishes to place on the table. Once the table selection has been made, a screen will automatically open up to reveal an imitation of a Puntobanco tableau and a small window revealing the live feed coming from within the land based Portomaso Casino. Seeing as this game does not need to be downloaded, and as long as an online player has internet access the game will immediately open to show this screen. The Puntobanco imitation tableau will comprise of the same three designated betting areas of Punto / Player, Banco / Banker or Tie. An online player will be given a specific amount of time between each game to place his / her bets on the tableau. Once this time has run out and whether the online player has managed to place a bet in time or not the live dealer within the Portomaso Casino will be indicated (from a computer screen by their side) to begin dealing the cards. This version is quite fast paced and the game will start and begin within a matter of minutes. However a player will be able to view every single move of the dealer as the broadcast screen will automatically zoom in and out between the cards being dealt and a bird’s eye view of the table. At the same times, imitation cards will automatically and simultaneously pop up on the onscreen tableau as the cards are being dealt by the dealer.
