How To Play

What is Baccarat?

Baccarat is a card game comprising of two hands, Banker/Player. The winning hand will be the hand whose card total is closest to nine. In the game of Baccarat, Aces have a value of one and ten/face cards have no value. Initially, two cards are drawn to each hand and depending on these card totals additional cards may be drawn.

On Baccarat, players will wager on Player or Banker and may place an additional wager on Tie, Player or Banker Pair. Alternately, four cards will then be drawn from the dealing device to the Player/Banker. At this point, if either hand has identical cards, whether on the Player or Banker they are classed as a Pair and all bets on the corresponding Pair betting area will be winners. Depending on the point count of these cards, additional cards may be drawn and the winning result will be the hand whose total is closest to nine. If the point totals are the same the result is a Tie and Tie bets will be paid accordingly. Player/Banker bets neither win nor lose. Maximum amount of cards that drawn to each hand is three.
