♣ Baccarat Objective:
In Baccarat you make a wager that either the Player's hand will win, the Banker's
hand will win, or that the game will result in a tie.
The object of baccarat is to predict which hand will get a point value closest
to 9, keeping in mind that all ten-value cards count as zero and aces count as
one. To participate in the game, you place your wager on the Banker's hand, on
the Player's hand, or on a tie. Then the Player and the Banker are each dealt
a two-card hand. Following standard baccarat rules (shown below), a third card
is dealt to the Player and/or the Banker.
The players place a wager on either the Bank's hand or the Player's hand. The
winning hand is the one with the point total closest to nine after all the cards
are dealt. You can also choose to place your bet on a tie, when both hands have
equal point values. If the game does result in a tie, a wager for the Banker or
the Player is returned. All winning wagers for the Banker and the Player pay even
money. However, if you win by betting on the Banker, the bank receives 5% commission.
If you correctly wager that the two hands will tie, your payoff is 8 to 1.
♣ Rules summarizing when a third card is
to be drawn:
If either the Player or the Banker have a total of 8 or 9 on the first two cards
no further cards are drawn.
If the Players total is less than or equal to 5 the Player's hand draws a third
If the Player does not draw a third card, then the Banker's hand stands on 6 or
more and takes a third card on a total of 5 or less. If the Player does take a
third card then the rules below will determine if the bank takes a third card.
If the Bank's total is 2 or less the Bank
draws a card, regardless of what Player's third card is.
If the Bank's total is 3, the Bank draws a
third card unless Player's third card was an 8.
If the Bank's total is 4, the Bank draws a
third card unless Player's third card was a 0,1,8,or 9.
If the Bank's total is 5, the Bank draws a
third card if Player's third card was 4,5,6,or 7.
If the Bank's total is 6, the Bank draws a
third card if Player's third card was a 6 or 7.
If the Bank's total is 7, the Bank stands.
