Baccarat is a fun game that offers a casino patron the best odds in the house. It's basically like betting heads or tails on a coin flip. I know that might not sound exciting, but with all the extra bonus bets and atmosphere, it is one of the best games in the house. Hit the Dragon bet and you will receive 40x your wager.
In the St Louis region each casino has its own very distinct Mini Baccarat section. Here is a brief description of each facility.
Lumière Casino Place has plans for a new Mini Baccarat section and restaurant. Until then there are plenty of tables for your Baccarat pleasure. They offer both commission Bac with Dragon Bonus and No commission EZ Bac with Dragon and Panda Bonus. It will be interesting to see what they come up with, since they will have a blueprint of what works in the area.
Hollywood Casino's Mini Baccarat section Phát Tài is its own separate little unique area The entire section is separate from the casino and has a very distinct traditional Asian look and feel. The Phát Tài restaurant is literally a part of the Mini Baccarat Section. This creates a fun atmosphere. The Phát Tài restaurant is is delicious. Check out the menu.
River City just opened its new Mini Baccarat section with an Asia Noodles restaurant inside. I love the separation of this room from the casino. This area formerly the poker room, is now home to St Louis's best Baccarat action. The room has very high ceilings and comfortable chairs in the corner to relax. The cherry blossom window's are a perfect fit for the modern Asian Sheek decor. The eight tables offer plenty of space to play while maintaining
Asia Noodles offer traditional Vietnamese and Pan-Asian food. I had the chicken wings for an appetizer and Pad Thai for the main course. Both dishes were simply amazing. The chili sauce I added to the noodles was the perfect flavor and heat. You can check out the menu here.

For this blog I considered bar areas on the casino floor to get a drink. I did not take into effect restaurants and bars that are not actually on the casino floor.
There have been many improvements recently to the bars inside casinos in the area. One of the newest upgrades is the new Globar at Ameristar. Formerly LIXX, the Globar didn't have a major overhaul, but the changes are noteworthy. For starters, there is changing ambient lighting surrounding the ceiling and bar area plus a new sound system. The floors are resurfaced and 20 new large HD Tv's surrounding the bar. These well positioned TV's make watching the game very enjoyable. They have also added more draft beer handles. As of September they were serving Stella, Budlight, Blue Moon, and Leinenkgel's Shandy, Schlafly's Seasonal,
There are also numerous bottle beer selections and a nice specialty drink menu.
The Globar also has a very nice cigar selection. These reasonably priced cigars are a perfect fit for this beautiful bar.
