Correct Casino Etiquette for a Baccarat Game
Baccarat is a casino game that comes with sophistication and large stakes at hand. It is well expected that baccarat players will abide with the casino etiquette for this particular game. This is for the sake that a player cannot annoy another player and a good social interaction between players is maintained.
The first thing that a baccarat player will put in mind is how to dress appropriately for the game. No one will be admitted in a baccarat game room that is dressed in a tank top or shorts and sandals. Even if you have the largest bankroll but if you are not dressed properly, the casino will not let you in until you have the right clothing on. Have a look around to see what other players are wearing that you may have an idea what to wear.
Once you are inside the baccarat game room, please wait until a new shoe is about to begin or a game is almost done. Do not ever barge into the middle of a game and ask about the minimum bet. It is best to observe first what is going on and you will know for sure the minimum stakes at the table.
When you are sitting down at the table, it is a player's good conduct to give a smile to everyone at the table. No need to introduce yourself, a simple smile is enough. Please do not ask questions or interrogate the other players at the table because they are there to play and not to have a talk show. As the game progresses, light talks and exchanges of comments are common but this doesn't happen at the start.
You must only place your bets when the dealer says so. When the dealer offers you the shoe, if you are not acquainted with it, then decline the offer politely. It's not considered a big crime when you decline the offer. The shoe will just be offered to another player at the table.
Taking a bathroom break during a game is acceptable. No casino etiquette is being broken. Just leave your chips and don't forget to inform the dealer about it and the dealer will hold the spot for you.
Tipping the dealer is an important is a good conduct for a player. You don't need to over tip the dealer. But it is expected that the longer you are playing at the table, the bigger the tip should be. Side betting for the dealer is allowed but do it at the right time.
Ordering drinks during the game is allowed but it is best to order when the other players do because it is very distracting when players order drink one at a time. You must be considerate with the other players' feelings. You are there to enjoy your time so let them also enjoy theirs.
Baccarat is an exciting and fun card game and everyone will enjoy it when the right casino etiquette for the game is observed.
