History of baccarat

Among European countries, there are historical traces of Baccarat in Australia, Italy and Spain. For some, he was introduced in Australia after 1483 (under the reign of King Charles VIII). But there is a trace of baccarat (or a very close game) earlier in Italy in a game of cards that used Tarot cards. Most historians note that Baccarat is a game of Italian origin. In addition, the word baccara in Italian means "nothing".

The Macao, a Portuguese card game in which you must also get a close number of 9, appears in Europe from 1775. The big difference to this variant that can be noted is that it is played with only 1 card in the beginning.

In 1855, the Baccarat was declared a game of chance and the laws have the prohibits. At the time, despite these laws, exclusive circles were organized and continued to play in private. When the casinos were legalized in 1907, the baccarat was one of the proposed games.

After a few years, Baccarat has become very popular in Australian casinos. And thanks to its popularity, the variants were born! The variant coming directly from Australia, the railway, is the most preferred in Europe in our days.

The Baccarat was exported to the United States by the British during the 1950s and its first appearance was at Dune Casino in Las Vegas. Today, several sites of online casino Offer Baccarat for their players.
