HOW TO PLAY BACCARAT
- First choose whether to bet on the Player, the Banker, a Tie or a combination of all three by placing chips ($1, $5, $25, $100 and $500 – the maximum wager is $500) on the marked circles on the table and clicking the “Deal” button. Both the Player and the Banker will then receive two cards.
- Victory goes to the party with the highest total hand value. If both hands are tied, it is considered a loss unless you bet on a tie. The total is decided by adding up the cards that make up each party’s hand. If the totals reach the double digit range, only the second number counts as the value of the hand. Example 1: 7 + 7 = 14. The Baccarat result is 4. Example 2: King (zero) + 6 = 6. The Baccarat result is six.
- The Player always plays first and receives a third card if the two-card total falls between zero and five.
- The Banker can also receive extra cards. If the Banker’s hand value is equal to seven, eight or nine, the Banker will stand. If the Banker’s hand value is equal to zero, one or two, the Banker draws another card. If the hand total falls between three and six, the Banker draws a card according to the chart below:
|Banker||Player’s Draw Card|
- The suit of a card has no bearing or value.
- Cards 2 to 9 have face value.
- 10’s, jacks, queens, and kings are worth zero.
- Aces are worth 1.
- Add the values of each card in the hand, and if the value is two digits, drop the first digit to determine the score.
- For example, 7 + 7 = 14 results in a value of 4 when you drop the first digit.
Wagers and Payouts
- You can bet on Player, Banker, Tie or any combination of the three.
- The hand with the highest total wins.
- Player pays 1-1.
- Banker pays 1-1 minus a 5% commission*. Example a $5 wager pays $4.75 for a total of $9.75.
- If you wager on a Tie and there is in fact a tie, you’ll receive a 9-1 payout.
*The commission is 5% of the bet and is rounded up to the next quarter. For example, a minimum bet of $6 would deduct a $0.50 commission. 5% of $6 = 30 cents, but since the commission is rounded up to the next 25 cents; the commission is actually 50 cents. 5% of $11 = $0.55 makes the actual commission $0.75.
