Baccarat

Baccarat is an exciting game, full of suspense and intrigue! Baccarat is both simple to learn and play. A game of baccarat has three possible outcomes: Player win, Banker win, and tie. Note that "Banker" does not refer to the house. Participants in the game have the option to bet on either the player or bankers hand.Before the hands are dealt, bets may be placed on the banker hand, on the player hand, or on a tie.

Winning bets on banker or player are paid 1:1, tie bets are paid 9:1.

The value of a hand is determined by adding the values of its individual cards.

Rules for the player hand: If the player's first two cards total 6 or more, then the player must stand without drawing a card. If the player's first two cards total 5 or less, the player must draw one additional card.

Rules for the banker hand: If the banker's first two cards total 7 or more, then the banker must stand without drawing a card. If the banker's first two cards total 0, 1, or 2, then the banker must draw one card. If the banker's first two cards total 3, 4, 5, or 6, then whether the banker draws is determined by the whether the player drew.

GAME DESCRIPTION

  • Baccarat is a card game played at casinos.Baccarat is a comparing card game played between two hands, the "player" and the "banker". Each baccarat coup has three possible outcomes: "player" (player has the higher score), "banker", and "tie".
  • In Baccarat, cards have a point value: cards 2-9 are worth face value (in points); 10s, Js, Qs and Ks have no point value (i.e. are worth zero); Aces are worth 1 point; Jokers are not used. Hands are valued according to the rightmost digit of the sum of their constituent cards: for example, a hand consisting of 2 and 3 is worth 5, but a hand consisting of 6 and 7 is worth 3 (i.e. the 3 being the rightmost digit in the combined points total: 13).The highest possible hand value in baccarat is therefore 9.
  • you can bet on either of two hands : One is the Banker's hand, the other is the Player's hand. A player may bet on either hand. Bets must be placed on either the Player or Banker before cards are dealt.
  • Two cards are dealt to both the Player and the Banker. A player holding the shoe slides one card out and places it face up in the Player's box on the felt table. The next card, the first of the Banker hand, is placed in the Banker's box on the table. The house then deals another Player card, then the second Banker card. The dealer's first round consists of two cards for both the Player and Banker.
  • If in the first two cards dealt, the point total is 8 or 9 for either the Player or the Banker, this is called a natural win and the game is over. Bets that have already been placed are cashed out.
  • The Player hand is completed first. A total of 8 or 9 for the Player will get no additional cards. The Player stands on totals of 6 or 7. On any other total, 0-5, the Player draws a third card, unless the banker has 8 or 9, in which case the bank hand wins with no further draw.
  • If the Player stands pat (or draws no new cards), the Banker draws with a hand total of 0-5 and stays pat with a hand total of 6 or 7. All other hands are dependent on the third card the Player draws:
  • If the Player's third card is 9, 10, face-card or Ace, the Banker draws when he has a 0-3, and stays with a 4-7.
  • If the Player's third card is 8, the Banker draws when he has a 0-2, and stays with a 3-7.
  • If the Player's third card is 6 or 7, the Banker draws when he has a 0-6, and stays with a 7.
  • If the Player's third card is 4 or 5, the Banker draws when he has a 0-5, and stays with a 6-7.
  • If the Player's third card is 2 or 3, the Banker draws when he has a 0-4, and stays with a 5-7.
  • The winning hand is that which totals closer to 9. In the event of a tie, neither hand wins or loses. Sometimes a commission is paid out of winnings when betting on the Banker's hand.
