The Game of Baccarat Historical Overview

Baccarat is one of the oldest casino games dating back to the 14th century when it was brought from Italy to France. The name of the game comes from the Italian word baccarat, which, translated into English means zero. There is a pretty good explanation for the name, though. In Baccarat, all tens, jacks, kings and queens have a zero value. The same applies to any hand that totals zero. For instance, a hand of seven and three makes zero and therefore baccarat. 카지노사이트

The most trustworthy historical sources claim that Baccarat derives from the Italian word for zero, but there are some arguments about the origin of the game because the French word Baccarat also means zero. According to the most popular version for the origin of Baccarat, it was invented by Felix Falguiere, an avid gambler from Italy. Initially, Baccarat was played with Tarot cards.

King Louis XIV known as one of the most powerful French rulers, banned all forms of gambling, but instead of decreasing the interest in such kind of games, the prohibition had the opposite effect. Baccarat became even more popular and the French version Chemin de Fer or Chemmy, for short, became widespread.

Although the first records for the game date back to 1400s, it was not until the 19th century when Baccarat started gaining popularity in Europe. Before that, it was mainly popular among the French royalty.

Good afternoon. I played baccarat and of course it is very gambling, but you know the rules of this game are a bit complicated. When compared to blackjack, the latter is much more logical and profitable, at least for me. Here is for example I played the last time in Australian online casino, which found thanks to site aussielowdepositcasino.com and precisely in this game I received large pleasure and a good winnings.
