Baccarat and Bond

Having a 007 themed party is extremely popular and no Bond film is complete without a casino scene.

 

We all remember the Poker scene from Casino Royale where Bond makes a straight flush to beat Le Chiffre, however many people do not remember that Bond’s real game of choice is Baccarat.

 

Baccarat is a simple game which lends to the games popularity amongst casino patrons.
Baccarat is a comparing card game played between two hands, the “player” and the “banker.” Each baccarat coup has three possible outcomes: “player” (player has the higher score), “banker,” and “tie.”

 

James Bond is featured playing Baccarat in Dr. No, Thunderball, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, For Your Eyes Only and Goldeneye.

 

In fact in the original Casino Royale novel of 1953, it is Baccarat that Bond is playing. So if you want your next James Bond event to be a genuine Bond affair, booking a Baccarat table will lend to the authenticity of your event.
