The name for Baccarat derives from the French baccara, but the ancient Italian word for zero is Baccarat too, so there’s some disagreement about where this age-old game originally came from.
Wherever it was born, Euro Palace Casino is now able to deliver it to players in New Zealand at their convenience, thanks to the mobile gaming opportunities that we provide, so you can place your bets as and when you wish to!
There is almost no difference between mobile Baccarat, the game as it is played at our online site, or the one you would enjoy at a land-based casino. It’s a card game, and you will be placing a bet on 1 of 3 possible outcomes:
It is important to remember that the Player and Banker hands are not in any way related to you or Euro Palace Casino. They are simply the names that the hands are known by, and neither you nor the house has any control over what these 2 hands do.
After you’ve placed your bet, 2 cards will be dealt to the Player and Banker hands, and, as in Blackjack, sometimes a 3rd card as well. However, this 3rd card will be dealt according to a formula that tells the mobile software that the circumstances are correct for an extra card to be handed out. You can read up on the rules if you prefer, but you aren’t required to memorise them in order to play, as the software governing the game does that for you.
After the cards have been dealt the point values of each will be added up and the hands will then be compared. Remember, 10, Jack, Queen, and King are worth 0 points, the Ace cards are 1 point each, and the remainder are taken at their face value. Also, should the total of 2 cards exceed 9, the ultimate goal of mobile Baccarat, the left-hand digit falls away. So, an 8 card and a 4 card would give you a point total of 2, not 12.
What’s more, you can enjoy mobile Baccarat in our demo play format as you please, and don’t need to rush into a real money bet until you are sure you know what you’re doing. There is very little strategy involved, it being largely a game of luck, so it won’t take you too long to learn the basics, and then you can get started enjoying this popular mobile game as you please.
Although it has a reputation as the first-choice for high rollers, the mobile Baccarat you can enjoy at Euro Palace Casino New Zealand has an array of stake options, so you will easily be able to find the one that suits you. Take some time to enjoy this first-rate game when you sign up with us and enjoy convenient mobile access to a true casino classic, on the go!
