The Rules

Card Values
All tens and picture cards equal zero.
The Ace's equals to 1.
All other cards acount as their face value. If the value of cards exceed 9, then the hand value is adjusted by subtracting 10 from the total.

9+7=16 hand counts 6
5+5+5=15 hand counts 5
10+9=19 hand is a "Natural" 9
King+Ace+5 hand counts 6

The Tie Bet
When a tie occurs, the two hands end up with the same total. Neither the Banker or the Player loses and the casino pays 8 times the wager amount that were placed on the tie for that hand only.

If either the player's hand or the banker's hand totals 8-9, the hand is called "Natural". In this case, both player and banker must stand.

If the player's hand total is:
0-5 player hand must draw
6-7 player hand must stand

If the player's hand stands on two cards, then two card banker hand totaling 3,4,5 must draw and 6 must stand.

toad 0-2 banker hand must draw
