Baccarat is a popular card game which exists in several different forms and can make anyone feel like James Bond. Baccarat was for a long time played exclusively by the European upper classes, but thanks to a sensational scandal in late nineteenth century Britain involving cheating high-ranking noblemen and its exposure in the press, word about how to play baccarat spread to the masses.

Today baccarat is available in practically all casinos and if desired can be played for low stakes, but has still managed to retain its aura of luxury and is still one of the most popular games amongst international high rollers. In the James Bond books, baccarat is his favourite game and in the first book, Casino Royale, published in 1953, the game of baccarat between Bond and SMERSH agent Le Chiffre is of crucial significance. Here at Vera&John there are several different types of baccarat to choose between, such as Baccarat Gold, Baccarat Pro, High Limit Baccarat, Punto Banco and Punto Banco High Limit.

Baccarat is an extremely captivating game and one that retains its appeal year in year out. The three main versions of baccarat are Punto Banco, Baccarat Chemin de Fer and Baccarat Banque (also known as Baccarat à Deux Tableaux). Punto Banco is a game of pure chance, while Baccarat Chemin de Fer and Baccarat Banque are based on a combination of luck and skill. Today it is also common to come across baccarat as a game of pure chance, known simply as Baccarat .
