object of baccarat is to obtain a hand with a point total
closest to 9. Aces count as one; 2 through 9 as their face
value; tens and picture cards count as zero. If the value of the
hand is ten points or more, subtract ten, and the remainder is
the baccarat point value of the hand. For example: 7+6=13=3 and
Place your wager on the banker's hand and/or on the player's
hand and/or on a tie. The player and the banker are then each
dealt a two-card hand. In certain cases, a third card is dealt
to the player or the banker or both (Third Card Rules). Cards
are dealt from a shoe that holds 6 decks of cards. The decks are
shuffled each round.
The player closest to 9, wins.
If you bet on the player and the player wins, you are paid 2 for
1 winnings on your bet. If you bet on the banker and the banker
wins, you are paid 2 for 1 minus 5% bank commission (vigorish).
If both the player's hand and the banker's hand have equal
totals, the game result is a "tie". If you have placed a bet on
the "tie" field, your payoff is 9 for 1.
