Punto Banco is one of the online gambling games, which are similar to Baccarat, and shows a hint of Black Jack. The difference is in its optional play, wherein no optional plays are being offered, in order to play. The cards that are dealt in this gambling game are fixed to the rules that are set for it, this is also different from other games like Sic Bo.

Punto Banco playing comes in two types, the first one is called conventional Blackjack a game most of us know. In this table game, there is only one dealer that controls the entire diagram of the play. This is usually the type of table that, is played and promoted in land based casinos. The other type of Punto Banco table is called the kidney-shaped version where there are three dealers involved, players are seated in armchairs, and they are given the opportunity to deal cards themselves. The table is numbered up to 12 where the players can sit at and play with others.

In playing this game, there are two hands involved (as common in other table games), the first hand is called the Player and the other hand is referred to as the Bank. The cards are dealt by the dealer according to the rules that are set for the game. The hand that gets a nine or closer to, it is the one that will emerge as the winner in the set game. The version is identical to both tables, the values of the cards in each hand are being calculated by adding it and using the last digit.

For example, if one hand gets a value of 9 and 6, with a total of 15, then the value of the game the hand played are 5. What is important here is the value of the card that was dealt for both the player and the competitor, in the game. It is a game of luck and not calculation, where the bet will be made and placed according to the hunches of the bettor.

The only one thing that is allowed to place a bet, is those players that are seated along the table. The player has to choose between the two hands, which one he thinks will win the game played, and then he will place the bet in the box represented, by the hand that the player has chosen. If you chose the Player, you just have to put the money in the box and if you choose the bank, it means you pass the bet to the dealer who is the one that places the money to the box that signifies the Bank.

If you are not sure between the two hands you held, you can opt for the egalite (a wel known gambling term), or betting on a tie what is some cases is the most sensible thing to do. Once the bet has been placed to corresponding hands, the first player is given the opportunity, to deal the cards sending it to the center where the dealer is positioned. The dealer who is also called the caller, arranges the cards in order. However, if this is played in mini version, the dealer is the one that performs all dealings. The player receives the first card and the second card goes to the bank and when both hands have received two cards, the dealer will indicate if it needs extra card.

The play played by the bank is more complex as compared to the Player. However, this can clearly be seen in the table. The bank can only draw if the player has a card value of 6 to 7 from three cards. If it the value is only from 2 cards, then the bank stands. If one player gets a succeeding card value as 1 to 5, this can already draw cards and if the cards that the player has received are from 6 to 9, it can stay without asking for an extra card.

The following terms that are used in playing Punto Banco are the Spread Sheet which means “run game of”, theres is no difference by the way with the online version of the game. The name that is called to two competing sides is Player and the Bank., the term Shoe is either referred to as the box where the cards are going to be used in dealing a game is placed. It is also referred to as a session of dealing the cards until the cut card has been reached.

A Cut Card is a red plastic card that stops the dealer from running out the card, in the running game. Another term used in this gambling game is the Natural, where the player has a card value of 8 or a 9 which is treated as strong number. The caller is a name, that is called to a dealer who is positioned at the center of the table. This is not always the best position to sit by the way, side sitters have a bigger advantage winning the game. It is named caller because it calls out the needed instruction that the acting dealer has to do.
