A Short History of Baccarat in Canada
Baccarat has a history dating back some 600 years and is one of the oldest recorded casino games. Baccarat remains hugely popular to this day among regular casino goers, online players and the wealthy high-rollers, who play this game in private VIP areas of major casinos around the world.
From the 15th century on, the great houses of France and Italy were said to bet vast amounts on games of chance including the earliest predecessors of Baccarat. It is unclear which country exactly begun the game, although with the word ‘Baccarat’ meaning ‘zero’ in ancient Italian, the smart money is on the southern European country as the origin of the game.
