Quick History of Baccarat

posted Oct 13, 2020 07:17:47 by MayAnderson
The fascinating and colorful history of baccarat dates as far back as the 1400s when it was invented by an ardent Italian gambler called Felix Falguierein. Baccarat is derived from the Italian word “baccara” which simply means “zero,” reflecting the fact that all face cards and tens have a value of zero.

Though the game initially began with popular medieval-era tarot cards, these were soon replaced by the standard playing cards, and the game made its way to France where it took the moniker Chemin de Fer, a variant of Baccarat en Banque. Between the 18th century and 19th century, the game of baccarat spread quickly across Europe.

It’s believed that Tommy Renzoni, a write-cum-gambler, brought the game to Las Vegas from Cuba. The rest, as they say, is history. And now, baccarat is permitted in all brick-and-mortar and online casinos in US states where gambling is legal, including Nevada and New Jersey.

Do you like baccarat? This is an interesting case)) This is usually done in China and Taiwan. I often see such offers on their sites. But I myself prefer the standard slot games - This brings me a stable additional income and does not take up a lot of free time. Sometimes I just open my site on my smartphone to kill time)
