The Baccarat Banque

The Baccarat Banque

 Although it looks a lot like the original version of Baccarat , the main difference between Baccarat Banque and Chemin de Fer is that the Banco must not give up its role even in the event of a defeat.

In fact, the bank passes only if it wants to withdraw the winnings deposited in the “bank” or has completely drained all its substances.

Generally in this version of baccarat the player who assumes the role of Banco is the one who is willing to invest the highest amount , even if in some casinos the role is assigned solely on the basis of the order of registration at the table.

The blackboard to reserve the role of “Banco”

In practice, in many casinos a board is placed near the table where players can sign up to participate in the Baccarat Banque table. The player who scores first on the list is the one who will play the role of ” Banco “.

The decks of cards that can be used in this particular variant can be from 2 to 4, but generally 3 decks of 52 cards are used.

Although the role of the dealer is played by one of the participants, who physically distributes the cards to the other players, at each table there is a casino dealer, who is in charge of checking the correctness of the operations and shuffles the decks of cards. .

The rules

This particular variant of the game can see the presence at the table of 10 players , distributed in two groups of 5 and placed to the right and left of the dealer.

The croupier shuffles the cards and passes them to the ” player-banker ” who distributes two to himself, two to the first player on his left and two to the player sitting on his right. The two players sitting close to the desk represent the two groups sitting at the table and are therefore his opponents.

This role of direct opponent of the dealer and of ” representative ” of the group of players must be surrendered in case of defeat , even if the “player-representative” can decide autonomously to pass his role to another participant.

Contrary to the Chemin de Fer version, all participants have the right to totally match the dealer’s bet and can perform this action by simply calling: “Banco”.

Call order

The precedence in the calling order belongs to whoever sits on the right of the dealer, then to the player who sits on his left and so on until the end of the table. In the event that two players call the “ Banco ” at the same time, they divide the calling fee.

Whoever makes the particular call on the Bank can play on one hand or on two hands separately, dividing the amount in half.

As far as the distribution of cards is concerned, this variant follows the rules of Chemin de Fer, with the possibility for the three main players to request a third card, unless they have a ” natural “.

Main types of online slot machines: multipayline slots, progressive slots

 On the various online casinos it is possible to find a real multitude of slot machines with multiple paylines , in fact there are some with 3 or 5 paylines, but there are others that have 25 paylines , up to a maximum of 100.

Their system of operation foresees that for each active payline it is necessary to make a bet and therefore the final cost of the bet is given by the final sum of all the bets made.

Obviously the more active paylines are, the higher the level of difficulty of the game, but the chances of winning are also greater.


Progressive Slots

Instead, the so-called ” progressive ” slots necessarily require a real money bet, as the final jackpot consists of all the losing bets of all players.

In progressive slots the jackpot can be very large, and sometimes it reaches millions of dollars, but obviously once the jackpot is paid, the collection starts from scratch, through the accumulation of money resulting from the losing bets.

Given the difficulty of winning the jackpot, progressive slots in some cases have a payout similar to that of draw games.

Progressive Random Slot

Within the progressive slots , a place of particular importance covers the random progressive slots , which assign the jackpots in a completely random way (random indeed), without the need for the player to make any kind of combination.

The great strength of these slots lies in the fact that the jackpots are very frequent, on a daily basis, as the gaming network in which they are inserted is really very vast and includes many sites and therefore thousands of players, in fact the collection area the frequency of winnings is ensured on a regular basis.

The frequency and regularity in issuing the jackpot are compensated by a very high margin of victory for the casino compared to the player, which is around 10%, and beyond that it must be kept in mind very clearly that the final jackpot can be won only by those who bet the most on all combinations.


Progressive Random Slots: total randomness and consecutive wins

Given the large amount of the final prize, progressive slots have lower payout percentages, even if there have been cases of winnings in quick succession; these are machines that work in a completely random way, so any situation can occur.

It is not possible to start playing progressive slots thanks to the entry bonuses offered by online casinos, as the final prize pool of the game is based on the real money bets made by the various users of the network and reach extraordinary figures: 10 million euros !!!!

Almost all types of online slots are linked to a progressive jackpot, but now we are going to review the ones that have offered the highest level of regularity in the payout to date .
