BACCARAT Playing Rules and Tips

Baccarat is a card game that is played with a single deck of cards. It is said to have originated in France over five hundred years ago and has evolved into a high rollers game in the physical casinos.

The baccarat table is quite large and has seating for up to twelve people. The object of this game is to predict which of the two hands, banker or player that are about to be dealt will be the closer to having a value of nine.

In the online casino, the method of play is not unlike stud poker. You use the player button if you wish to bet on the player's hand, banker button to bet on the banker's hand and you have a tie button in case you think a tie will be dealt. The increase and decrease buttons are used to adjust the size of your bet. This can only be changed between the games.

Two hands of cards are dealt one to the player and one to the banker. If the first two cards dealt to either player are equal to five or less, that hand will be dealt a third card.

The amount wagered on each game is displayed in the bet box. The amount can be changed by using the increase or decrease buttons. After the wager is set, you have to choose from the banker's hand, the player's hand or a tie before the cards are dealt. The winning hand is the one with a value closest to nine. In baccarat, aces have a value of one, picture cards and tens have no value at all and do not count when calculating the value of the hand. All other cards are counted on the basis of their face value. When the value of a baccarat hand exceeds the value of nine, only the unit portion of the hand is counted. Two nines would total eighteen. Since only the unit portion counts, the score is counted as eight. Two fives would total ten and since the unit portion is zero so is the score. When the winning hand is identified, the game is over.

Generally a 5% commission is taken when you bet on a winning banker's hand.

A tie that you did not bet on refunds your ante.

If you have bet on a winning bankers hand, you normally win twice your bet less the house commission. A bet on the player's hand will return twice your bet. If you bet on a tie and it comes to pass, then you usually win eight times your bet.

May lady luck ride upon your shoulder!
