Popular Baccarat now making a mobile appearance

iPad Baccarat has now been launched! Although this popular casino card game has taken longer to be made available on mobile gaming platforms than other casino games like roulette or blackjack, the release of this app has been well received. The app offers convenience and easy access to your favourite online casino card games and players can game for real money on their iPad – wherever they are!

Baccarat – the casino card game

Baccarat is a card game popularised in casinos. The game is essentially played by two players, namely the ‘banker’ and the ‘player’ – each is dealt a hand of two or three cards. The winning hand is the hand with the highest remainder after the card values have been devised by ten.  In iPad Baccarat, just as in the traditional Punto Banco version of Baccarat, a coup consists of four to six cards, each player initially being dealt two cards, the end of a coup indicated by either player achieving 8 or 9 after the division.

This game is traditionally played in private areas of a land based casino to offer an extra level of security and privacy due to the high stakes involved. However with iPad Baccarat players can opt to enjoy high roller games, or even play for free, so there’s guaranteed to be a version that suits everyone’s budget.

How to – the iPad download way

Casino gaming enthusiasts now have the opportunity to use their iPads to access games like Baccarat by installing the gaming software offered by online casinos straight onto their iPads. All you need to do is visit your favourite online casino site and download the app. You will need to create an account with the casino to be allowed to play for real money.  To ensure that you can play for real money, also consider a mobile sites banking options.

Check that the withdrawal and deposit policies are in line with your expectations and game play needs and that secure banking options are provided. Also consider that the currencies offered should be available in your area. An easy-to-use, efficient service should be expected and charges should not be levied for these services. Once you’ve found the casino you like best, download iPad Baccarat and get started!

Instant play on iPad

There are options too, for instant play Baccarat, while the quality of the graphics or interface may be lower than the downloaded versions. The advantage of using instant play though is that games are easier to find. That being said, the downloaded versions will only use your browser to download the initial software and offer more user preferences and more game types than instant play. Downloaded versions of Baccarat will use the full visual and processing capability of an online casino iPad game which results in smoother game play, fewer interruptions due to network signal loss and a more integrated experience.

Factors to consider

Finding the right site to play iPad Baccarat is essential. You will need to consider all the baking options mentioned above whilst ensuring that your winnings are converted fairly before a withdrawal (in the event of a currency difference). Premium or bonus features for loyal players should also be considered and online casinos often have promotional or reward packages for their top players. Customer support is also a very important factor; methods including live chat are considered the best form of customer support. Once all these features have evaluated, the only thing left is to choose from the many versions of online Baccarat compatible with iPad and get playing!
