Regular visitors to this site at onlinecasino.ie will know that our primary purpose is to provide as much information as we can to new online casino games players in the hope that we can improve their enjoyment of playing casino games online. To this end we have allocated much of this site to explaining the rules of many of the casino games available online, but we also regularly attempt to provide a few casino tips related to playing specific casino games which may be new to many online casino customers. One of the casino games which usually falls into this category is Baccarat, a casino game rarely if ever available in most real casinos in Ireland or the UK, and one which for some reason has acquired a reputation for being a casino game only played by high rollers and difficult to play. Nothing could be further from the truth because Baccarat is one of the easiest casino games to play online and requires no skill whatsoever. There are some who might disagree with that statement because the rules of Baccarat are a little complicated, but to play Baccarat at an online casino you do not need to know the rules because the whole game is controlled by the dealer. Only two hands are dealt in the casino game of Baccarat, the dealer’s hand and the player’s hand and there are only three possible outcomes. The player simply has to bet on one of these outcomes. Either the dealer’s hand wins, the player’s hand wins, or the hands are tied which is very rare. The first tip is to forget anything which has happened before, the results of previous hands are irrelevant. Secondly it is advisable to check how many decks are being used because a single deck hand marginally improves the odds for the dealer and reduces the house edge. The house edge is important because statistically one should always bet on the dealer’s hand, but that is not only boring but the house edge will beat you in the end. Always remember Baccarat is very much a game of chance.
