The object of the Baccarat game is to bet on the hand that you believe will be closest to a total of nine.
Baccarat is played with six decks of cards that are re-shuffled after each hand.
You can bet on either the Player's side, the Bank side or on a Tie.
Four cards are dealt, the first and third to the Player's hand, the
second and fourth to the Banker's hand
Enter a betting amount by choosing a chip amount and clicking on any of the three betting areas, either the "Banker" the "Player" or the "Tie". Note: The right mouse button is for deducting money from the table.
Once wager is placed, click on the "SPIN" button to continue.
If you have any combination of cards that qualifies for a payout, your credit will be increased by the amount shown on the bottom left of the card screen.
Minimum bet: $1
Maximum bet: $200
Avoid "tie" bets. They favor the house and usually occur in less than 10% of hands.
Statistically, "banker" bets are slightly better than "player" bets.
Bet on the hand that won last (i.e. if the bank hand just won, make your next bet on the bank hand); You will always be betting on the hand that is streaking.
Increase your bets gradually on consecutive wins, but whenever a loss occurs revert back to your minimum bet.
10s and Pictures count as Zero.
Aces count as One.
2 through 9 count at 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 nor the Player looses and the casino pays 8 times the wager amount that was placed on the tie for that hand only.
Third Card Draw Rules
The rules of Baccarat determine whether a third card can be taken, but in the end, the winner is the hand with a total closest to nine. No hand will receive more than three cards.
If either the Player's hand or Banker's hand total 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 the two card Banker hand totaling 3,4,5 must draw and 6-7 must stand. After the Player's hand is dealt a third card , Banker's hand receives a third card according to the following rules:
0-2 Banker hand must draw
3-6 third card to Player hand determines draw or stand
7 Banker hand must stand
When Banker hand totals 3-6:
Banker Hand Totals
Banker hand draws When Player third card is
Banker hand stands When Player third card is
Banker hand must stand
"Natural" Banker must stands
The Tie Bet
Winning Player hand wagers are paid 1 to 1.
Example: if you bet $5 on the Player hand, and the Player's hand was closer to 9 than the Banker's hand, you will get your $5 back plus another $5.
Winning Banker hand wagers are paid 1 to 1 but the Player must pay a 5% commission to the house.
Example: if you bet $5 on the Banker's hand, and the Banker's hand was closer to 9 than the Player's hand, you will get your $5 back plus another $4.75 ($5 minus $0.25).
Winning tie bet wagers are paid at 8 to 1.
Example: if you bet $5 on the tie hand, and the Banker and Player have the same hand count, you will get your $5 plus another $40.
