Baccarat

Baccarat is a popular card game comprising of two hands, BANKER/PLAYER. The winning hand will be the hand whose card total is nearest to 9. In the game of Baccarat, Aces have a value of one and ten/face cards are valued at zero.

How To Play

On Baccarat, you can wager on Player or Banker and/or place additional wagers on Tie, Player/Banker Pair or Lucky 6. When all bets are placed, four cards will be drawn alternately, to the Player/Banker
hands. Initially, two cards are drawn to each hand and depending on these card totals, additional cards may be drawn according to the table shown.

If either hand has a Pair, (cards of same value/ same picture card) after the initial cards are dealt, Pair bets will win. Depending on the total of these initial cards, additional cards may be drawn. The maximum number of cards that may be drawn to either hand is three. The winning hand will be the hand whose total is closest to nine.

If the total of the cards is the same when all cards have been drawn, the result will be a Tie and all other wagers neither win nor lose and Tie wagers shall win.

 
  • A “Tie” wager shall win when the Player and Banker card
    totals are the same.
  • A “Player Pair’’ wager shall win if the first two cards
    dealt to the Player constitute a Pair.
  • A “Banker Pair” wager shall win if the first two cards
    dealt to the Banker constitute a Pair.
  • A “Lucky 6” wager shall win if the Banker wins on a
    total of six with two cards.
  • A “Lucky 6” wager shall win if the Banker wins on a
    total of six with three cards.

When the first two cards to Banker or Player total 8 or 9 it is called a “Natural”. The highest hand will be declared a winner or a Tie if both hands have the same card total.
