The traditional table game of baccarat has taken on a new level of popularity with American audiences, so much so that The Venetian® and The Palazzo have taken strides to make the game much more accessible to players with traditional tables available from only a $25 minimum bet, as well as the only Imperial Baccarat on the Strip - a live dealt $5 minimum baccarat game played on an electronic betting terminal.
