Baccarat Rules – Elegant and User Friendly!

Baccarat is an exciting card/table game found in most casinos around the world. To begin, you have 3 selections on where to place your wager: bet the player’s hand will win; bet the banker’s hand will win; bet the game will result in a tie.

Card ValuesAce = oneFace cards and 10s = zeroAll other cards count as their numbered value. For example, the seven of hearts has a value of 7.ObjectPredict which hand will get a point value closest to 9.

RulesTo play, place your wager on the player’s hand, the bank’s hand, or on a tie. Once your wager is placed, click “DEAL”. The player and the banker are each dealt their two-card hand. According to standard baccarat rules, a third card will be dealt to the player and/or the banker.

If the cards in either hand have a combined value more than ten points, just subtract ten. The difference is the baccarat point value of the hand. For example: 6+7=13, which counts as a 3 in baccarat; 9+9=18, which counts as 8; 9+K=9, as face cards and 10s count as 0.

The winner is the hand with the point value closest to 9. In the event of a tie, any wagers placed on the player or the banker are returned. If you wager on a tie and the two hands result in a tie, your payoff is 8 to 1.

Even money is paid on all winning wagers placed on the player or banker. However, if you win by betting on the banker, the bank receives a 5% commission.

Third Card RulesThe following baccarat rule charts govern when the player and/or the banker will automatically draw a third card:
