Baccarat is a very old casino game that can trace its history all the way back to seventeenth century Europe, France to be more precise. Baccarat has always been known as the game of kings, it has a reputation for being exclusive and indeed it was for a very long time. favoured among the aristocracy of Europe it is still considered to be one of the primary classic casino games.

When the game of baccarat spread to America it became vry popular there as well, so much so that the Americans even invented their very own variation to it called American baccarat. Baccarat, either the traditional French version or the more modern American version is still one of the most popular casino games, either online or in real casinos.

Now there is a new version of baccarat and it is fast becoming one of the most played casino games in any casino, it is called mini baccarat. Mini baccarat is based closely on normal baccarat but is played on a much smaller table, there are only seven players allowed to play at a time. There is also a single dealer controlling the betting and flow of the game.

On the mini baccarat table you will fin three circles. These three circles represent the three different kinds of bets that you can make in a baccarat game. There is a red circle for betting on the Player, a yellow circle for betting on the Banker and a smaller white circle reserved for betting on a tie between the two.

The tradition in all casinos is to always have the baccarat table separated from the rest of the casino floor, either in an entirely separate room or cordoned off with velvet ropes. The reason for this is that casinos have always punted baccarat as a noble game, aristocratic and exclusive.

The mini baccarat table therefore serves the purpose of satisfying the needs of those players who want to play a quick game of baccarat without having to go into a separate room. Mini baccarat is far more accessible than traditional baccarat is.
