    Just looking to learn this game.
    Do all the casinos offer it and can u play anytime or are they closed alot of the time especially during the day?

    Does every player get a card or do you just bet on the one

    Is the deck shuffled every play or do you play thru the deck like black jack

    What is min bets at the lower ends tables

    So if I bet 5 or 10 bucks. I win that amount ?

    Thanks

    Not at every casino but at most.

    There are two hands dealt you bet on which hand you think will be higher. Everyone bets on those two hands. In lower limits you cannot touch cards in higher you can handle them, though I play at lower limits so others can speak on this.

    Dealt from a shoe, like bj.

    Hmmm I cannot answer limits I know the stadium at venetian has $5. I have not seen anything for mini baccarat under $10 on the floor.

    A bet on player pays even money.

    Banker bet even money less 5% commission

    Tie pays 8 to 1

    Much more information here with a,simulator you can play on.

    Download an iPhone/android app and play for free. I taught my girlfriend within 15 mins how to play craps. Its a great learning tool however I learn easier by doing then by reading but thats me...

    Wanker covered most of this, but I can add a few more details. The lower limit game is referred to as mini-baccarat and can be found on most, but not all, strip casino floors. Most of the time I see the table min as $25, but there are $10 tables from time to time (and I have never played the stadium game at V/P, but I would not be surprised that it has lower limits; its the same game, just played on a large electronic board that can accommodate many players at once). The higher limit game, called midi-baccarat, is available in most high limit rooms. The only difference between mini and midi is that at midi, the gamblers get to touch the cards (only the dealers at mini). The mins for that game usually start around $100, but can be higher on busy weekends.

    Try out a mini game and see if you enjoy it. Its the easiest game in the casino. All you have to do is decide which side to bet. After that, the dealer takes over and the cards determine which side wins

    It's kind of like slots, you have no input, no decisions to make, except whether to bet banker or player.

    Yeah it is that easy.. knowing the drawing rules helps but that isn't even necessary.

    I know flamingo had $10 mini during day on the Floor.

    I've seen it at Harrahs too. But overall, hard to find a bac game that cheap on the Strip

    You can find $100 game in the high limit room. You can't find a $50 game in there. But sometimes the mini-bac tables outside the high limit are $50 games.
