Europe has contributed well in the gaming world. Most famous casino games have their roots traced in this continent. One of the “world’s finest casino games of the world” is the game of baccarat. This game was invented by an Italian player and serves as the ancestor of modern baccarat games played today.
One of the ramifications of Italian “baccarat” is French “chemin de fer”. This variety of baccarat became popular among the French aristocratic class before it was made available to people of all sectors in French casinos so far. In “railroad”, players bet and care among themselves. The casino does not finance the game and one of the players serves as a bank. Once a round of baccarat is finished, the “shoe” or role of the banker is passed to the next player in a counter-clockwise fashion.
“Punto Banco” is also an offshoot of the first Italian baccarat game. It literally means the “player” for the “punto” and the “bank” for the “banco”. This variety of baccarat is popular in some casinos in Europe and North America. Some say that this game can not be considered a variety of baccarat. Punto Banco is simply a French term for American baccarat because the rules are basically the same between these two games of baccarat. The difference can be seen in the layout of the table and the number of cards used, although this also varies from one casino to another,
meanwhile, European baccarat has an English origin. This variety of baccarat is not only popular in England, but also in the casinos of South America. European baccarat has mainly evolved from its French counterpart, “chemin de fer”. Some rules of the Fench version have been changed with his name. In this variety of baccarat, the casino provides finance for the hands of the banker. There is also a maximum amount of bet that can be placed, which is also placed by the banker.
And finally, one of the famous European varieties of baccarat is the in Baccarat Bank. In this variety of baccarat rules to draw another map is “railroad” similar. Two hands are occupied for the player and one hand goes for the bank. One of the players serves as a banker until he has been beaten by another player. Players bet according to the maximum bet amount that the bank has placed. Once the bank has been beaten, it will be changed seats by will with the player who won the round of baccarat.
