Baccarat is the oldest of modern casino games and has traditionally been the
game of the high rollers. Baccarat has also become increasingly popular among
regular Casino patrons. Baccarat is a card game played with a single deck of
cards and is one of the simplest games to play in the casino. The objective of
the game is to predict which of the two hands that are about to be dealt (the
Banker or the Player's) will have a value closest to nine.
|Playing the Game|
The game Baccarat is played with a single standard deck of cards. Two
hands of cards are dealt, one to the Player and one to the Banker. Each
hand will contain either two or three cards. If the first two cards
dealt to the Player or the Banker are equal to five or less, then the
respective hand will be dealt a third card.
Once the size of your wager has been determined, you must decide which
of three possible bets you want to make before the cards are dealt. You
can decide to bet on the Banker's hand winning, the Player's hand
winning or the possibility of a tie.
The winning Baccarat hand will be the one with a value closest to nine.
The value of a hand is calculated by adding up the value of the cards.
Ace cards have a value of one. Face cards and Tens have no value and
therefore do not contribute to the value of the hand. All other card
values are treated as they appear. For example, 2 = 2, 3 = 3, 4 = 4.
If the value of a Baccarat hand exceeds nine, then the value of the hand
is taken as the unit portion of the total. So, if a hand consists of an
eight of clubs and a seven of captaincookss, the total for the hand will be
15. You would ignore the tens portion of that total, giving you a value
of 5. Similarly, if the total value of the cards were 20, you would
ignore the 2 tens portion giving you a hand value of 0.
Once the winning hand is determined the game is over. If the hand you
bet on won you will be paid out according to the Payout Schedule.
Please take note of the following rules:
- A 5% commission is taken from the amount won when you bet on a
winning Banker's hand. Your Ante is not included in the calculation.
- Face cards and ten cards do not have a value in Baccarat.
- A tie that you did not bet on pays back your Ante.
If you have chosen the winning hand the payout will be made according to
the table below.
|The Winning Hand
|The Banker Wins
||Twice the bet minus 5% commission on winnings for
|The Player Wins
||Twice the bet|
|A Tie Wins
||You win 8 times the bet.|
If the hand that you chose to bet on wins, you are paid double your
bet unless you bet on a tie. In that case, the payout is 8 times the
amount you bet. If you win when betting on the Banker's baccarat hand
the House charges a small percentage. If you have bet on a losing hand
your Ante is lost. If the hands are tied and you have not bet on a tie,
then your Ante will be returned.
