Somewhat like a combination of poker and craps, there are added bets like ante and wager for the player as well as ante and wager for the banker. Plus there is a ‘natural win’ on the player and banker. You can also bet on the winning totals.

I think it is a great combination of baccarat, poker and craps. If you consider the 9 to be similar to 21, you could also stretch that description to blackjack thereby resulting in a super game combo.
It also seems like it could add a lot more action to the normally quiet baccarat game.
