Different Types Of Baccarat Games

As with most casino games, baccarat has a variety of different variations. These are named: Che min-de-fer, Mini Baccarat, Super Pan 9, Baccarat en Banque and Punto Banko. Below I will explain the differences in these baccarat variations.

Che min-de-fer

Che min-de-fer is a French variation of baccarat. It means railroad in French. Che min-de-fer is different from regular baccarat because the player that is banker must pass the shoe when he or she loses a hand. This allows the shoe to move around the table like a train on a railroad.

Mini Baccarat

Very similar to regular baccarat but mini baccarat is well smaller. The table is smaller and the minimum bets are smaller. The table is also managed by just one dealer.

Private Baccarat

In this variation the banker is allowed to deal the player two hands. The player then has the option to play one hand or two. Should the player choose both hands then they must win both hands. If they win one and lose the other is it considered a tie.

Super Pan Nine

In Super Pan Nine every card valued at 7,8,9, or 10 are taken out of the shoe. Then the player and Banker are dealt 3 cards face down. Now the player must choose if they want a 4th card. The banker only draws another card if he has a score of 3 or 4.

Baccarat en Banque

In this variation the player is dealt two hands while the banker is dealt one. The players are then allowed to bet on one of the players baccarat hands but not the bankers hand. The other slightly difference is that the bankers position is controlled by the casino.

Punto Banko

Another name for normal baccarat.
