Casino Cruise Baccarat

At Casino Cruise it’s clear that they pride themselves in knowing what players want, and then delivering on their demands.

That’s certainly what they’ve done with the Baccarat games on offer, which come in a few different versions including the Mini and the Classic games. This ensures there’s something for everyone and being able to play for free or real money means that you can learn the ins and outs of a classic card game at your leisure.

Playing for free is more than just a valuable way to practice your technique. It also means you can relax and enjoy some of the best online casino games in Canada without any financial stress, and that you can keep playing even after you’ve used up your daily playing budget. Of course, when you are ready to play for real money, you stand to win some really impressive payouts!

Baccarat Background

Dating back to the aristocratic homes of 14th-century Italy and France, the game of Baccarat has a proud history and has come a long way. It was still very exclusive when it first arrived on the Las Vegas scene in the 1950s, and there were even enclosures surrounding the tables where it was played! Today it remains as refined as ever, but far less exclusive, and Casino Cruise offers some of the best online Baccarat entertainment in the world to players in Canada and further afield.

Playing Baccarat at Casino Cruise

The Baccarat games available at Casino Cruise are all powered by elite software providers and provide a first class playing experience. Superior graphics, animations and attention to detail mean you’ll be fully engaged in the games from the moment you first start to play, no matter where you are and no matter what else is going on around you at the time.

With every round of this game, you’ll be betting on which of 2 hands will have the higher total. You can bet on any outcome – that the Player hand will win, that the Banker hand will win, or that the hands will tie. The Player and the Banker hands, also known as the Punto and Banco hands respectively, are not assigned to you and the dealer. Rather, they are simply the names given to the hands that will be compared with each other.

Each hand consists of 2 cards, and adding their values together and dropping the 10 determines their totals. This means that a hand consisting of a 10 and a 5 is worth 5, rather than 15. If the 10 were replaced with a 2, the total would be 7 and the hand would actually be worth more.

The ace cards and the royal cards are worth 1 and 0 respectively, and the number cards all carry their face value. A Player hand will stand on a total of 6 or 7, and will get dealt another card if the total is 5 or below. If the hand is worth 8 or 9 it automatically wins the round, with 9 being the highest total possible and often being called a Natural.

There are also specific rules about when a Banker hand will get another card dealt. These can get quite complex, and involve several factors such as if the Player hand was dealt another card and what the value of that third card was.

Luckily, Casino Cruise will all take care of this for you, usually with programmes to detect when another card is required and then to deal it automatically, so you don’t need to worry about remembering these complicated ins and outs. All you need to focus on is enjoying your gameplay and developing your techniques so that you can win the huge payouts that Casino Cruise can offer.

Winning with Baccarat at Casino Cruise

Casino Cruise’s Baccarat games offer some of the best odds available on any of their games and pay out 1:1 for a winning Player or Banker hand bet, with a 5% deduction for commission if it’s a winning Banker rather than a winning player stake. If you successfully wager on the hands tying, the payout is a much higher 8:1.

This jaw-dropping amount is truly thrilling, but it does come with a house edge to match. The steep edge of 14.1% means you have to be prepared to take a lot of risk with this wager. It really just depends how lucky you’re feeling, but you’ll love the high-quality Baccarat games at Casino Cruise no matter what you decide to wager on.

Online Baccarat Strategy

As you spend more and more time playing Baccarat at Casino Cruise you’ll develop more insights and strategies, especially with the no-deposit free play games. Most strategists would suggest never putting money on a tie bet, and we would certainly recommend waiting a while and getting properly familiar with the game before you do. Having said that, of course, it is true that these high-risk bets and the incredible thrill they bring when you win are irresistible for some players!

The biggest thing to remember is probably that, since Baccarat is such a game of chance, this is best factored into any betting decisions that you make. One of the most commonly chosen ways to do this is to apply the Martingale strategy to your Baccarat game. This involves doubling your bets when you’re losing and halving them when you win. This might sound counter-intuitive, but once you try it you’ll see that it means you will eventually recoup your losses when you land a win.

Keep practicing and refining your technique; Baccarat has one of the lowest house edges of all online casino games and should definitely be played and enjoyed as often as possible. With its top-class payouts and bonuses, Casino Cruise is among the best places to do just that.

Open a casino account, make your first deposit, claim your welcome bonus and start enjoying real money games, or play in the free money mode. Either way, enjoy the superior Baccarat games that Casino Cruise has to offer to all players from Canada, whenever and wherever you want to!
