Two hands are dealt in Baccarat - The Banker's hand and the Player's hand. Prior to each deal, the player wagers on whether the Player's hand or the Banker's hand will be closest to a total of 9. The player also has the option to wager on a tie (i.e. both the banker's and player's hands total the same). 8 decks of 52 cards are used.
BACCARAT: How to playSelect the amount you would like to wager on a given hand by clicking the left mouse button on a chip and dragging it and dropping it on the "Player", "Banker" or "Tie" sections of the gaming table.
To specify a bet that does not equal an existing chip denomination, simply click on another chip denomination after placing your previous chip on the table. For example, to bet $30, click and drag the $25 chip and place it on the table, then click and drag the $5 chip and drop it on top of the $25 chip. Your total bet will be displayed in the "Current Bet" window.
You may repeat your last bet by clicking on the "Last Bet" button. You MUST click the "Place Bet" button after you've finished dragging and dropping chips for the bets to be registered and valid.
If you place a wager that is lower than the minimum table bet limit, or higher than the table maximum, your bet amount will automatically be rejected. After each player has pressed the "Place Bet" button and/or the betting time period has expired, the Player and Banker are dealt two cards.
All tens and picture cards are worth zero, aces are worth 1, and all other cards are worth their face value. If the value of cards exceeds 9, then the value is adjusted by subtracting 10 from the total.
Hand + Hand = Total
- 9+7 = 16 = 6
- 5+5+5 = 15 = 5
- 10+9 = 19 = "Natural" 9
After the first two cards are dealt to both the Player and Banker, a third additional card may be dealt but the player does not ask for a third card. All additional cards are subject to a "Third Card Rule". No hand receives more than three cards.
When the Player and Banker hands equal the same total, the hand is declared a Tie and all bets (other than Tie bets) for that game are voided. If the value of the cards in either the Player's Hand or the Banker's Hand is an 8 or a 9 (a "natural") after receiving their initial two cards then no more cards shall be dealt to either hand.
If the value of the cards in either hand on the first two cards is 0 to 7 inclusive, the hands shall draw in accordance with the "Third Card Rules".
