Baccarat was introduced into Europe several centuries ago, and since then its popularity has spread all around the world. It is known as a VIP card game, and is very popular with high rollers. Certainly its popularity was enhanced by James Bond playing this game in some of his book and movies, generally with a beautiful lady at his side.
Baccarat Pro is a game of luck, which is different from Blackjack, the other extremely popular NetEnt Pro game. In Blackjack skills can be responsible for winning you a higher payout. The rules of Baccarat Pro High Limit are much like the rules of the standard Baccarat games. You may bet on the banker, or the player, or a Tie. The Banker and the player each receive an initial two cards. In some cases, during the game, either one or both hands will receive a third card. Tens and picture cards have a value of 0, aces count as 1, and all other cards are counted at their numerical value.
Very High Betting Limits
As the name of the game implies, Baccarat Pro High Limit is played with some very high betting limits. You can wager up to five hundred credits on each bet, and even more, up to one thousand credits, or each combination bet. The low betting limit in Baccarat Pro high Limit is low enough, however, for everybody to be able to try this game.
Online Baccarat Pro high Limit is played with eight decks of cards, shuffled after every game. Gamblers expect to play high limit games, just to be allowed to enter the elite baccarat room, but this privilege is worth the price.
Anyone with a knowledge of casino games history, will know that Baccarat is a close relative to the game of Faro, the most popular game of the Old West. Baccarat Pro High Limits is not only a game for elitists and high rollers, but also for those who enjoy living on the edge.
Determining the Winner
When you add up the total of the hands, only the last digit is important. For instance, when the cards are added up and the total goes into double figures, a single digit number, or the number on the right is counted as the total. If your cards are a 4 and a 9, they are added up to 13, and then the value of the hand is 3. Because the game is simple to play, the action is always fast and exciting. Given that the target is 9, hands with a very low total will be dealt an additional card. In fact, when learning baccarat rules, the only part of the game requiring some extra knowledge is the way the value of the cards are added up during play.
Extended Combination Bets
There is one interesting difference between NetEnt’s standard online baccarat and Baccarat Pro High Limit, and that is the combination bet that has been introduced to the Baccarat pro high limit game. In this game you can make a combination bet of Player and Tie, or Banker and Tie. You therefore have a choice of five different bets that you can make in Baccarat Pro high Limit, instead of the regular three of Player, Banker or Tie in any other version of Baccarat. This of course opens up plenty of new opportunities of strategies to the serious high limit player.
