The Fun Game of Online Casino Baccarat

Among dozens of great online casino games, we just couldn’t miss the best entertainment given you by the online casino baccarat game. Sometimes when baccarat is played at home or outside a land based or online casino, the rules are slightly different from when it’s played in a casino. That can cause some interesting stories which are full of entertainment. One of the greatest baccarat stories is about the American multi millionaire John W. Gates – at one time when he was playing private baccarat acting as the Banker he announced that his bank had a bankroll of 1 million US$. One of the other baccarat gamblers announced ‘Banko’. This meant that the two players would play a single game of baccarat about one million dollars.

At this specific private baccarat table, unlike in an online casino, the high rollers were playing according to a special rule where the banker deals 3 hands of cards of two cards each. One of the baccarat hands belongs to the Banker but the Player can choose to play any or both hands (‘a cheval’). If the Player chooses to play both hands he will have to win both hands to win the baccarat game. If he wins one and loses the other it’s a tie.

With one million dollars on the line Gates dealt 3 hands. His opponent chose to play both his hands – a cheval. Gates won the first hand but lost the second hand – so the game was a tie. But still the game had consequences for Gates – since that game of baccarat he was always referred to as Mr.Bet-a-Million. And although an online casino is an entertainment for itself, that kind of entertainment you will not see in any online casino.
