Baccarat, a game of chance. Played in secluded rooms in some of the most prestigious casinos around the world. What is the mystique surrounding this game?
Baccarat is a game of chance. The house odds are slight and for this reason, the wagers are often very high. It is a favored game with high rollers for its simplicity and low house advantage. If you are considering jumping into the fray and placing a wager, you might be wondering exactly what the difference is between mini, midi and plain old baccarat is.
The difference is very simple. First, one can point out the table size. Baccarat is played on large table, with two dealers on each end settling bets and one dealer in the middle ensuring the cards are dealt and the shoe moves accordingly. These are the tables where you shall find the high rollers. The stakes are high; the table minimum is usually $100.
Midi baccarat is played on a table smaller than the big, high roller game. Yet even at this size, the minimum is usually no less than $25 a bet. There is only one dealer at the table. The dealer will draw all the hands and settle each bet after the cards have been drawn. The last of the tables is the mini. As the name suggests, the mini is a table usually no bigger than your standard black jack table. Again, there is only one dealer and he or she will deal all the cards and settle the bets accordingly.
There is no difference in the rules of the game between mini, midi, and big baccarat. The cards are dealt the same way, the same rules apply, and the payouts are the same. The only difference is the table size and the limits on these tables.
