Baccarat gained attention in 1891 during the Royal Baccarat Scandal, also known as the Tranby Croft affair. This was a British gambling scandal involving the Prince of Wales (future King Edward VII), and started during a house party in September of 1890, when Sir William Gordon-Cumming was accused of cheating at baccarat.
A few decades later, baccarat made another appearance in the popular spy series James Bond. Being Bond’s favourite casino game, baccarat gained major attention in the 1953 debut of Casino Royale, where Bond faces Le Chiffre in a thrilling battle of baccarat.
