BACCARAT

Choose which hand you choose to play, the Player’s hand (pays 1:1), the Banker’s hand (pays 1:1 less a 5% house commission), or a tie (pays 8:1). The Player and the Banker then receive 2 cards each. The object of the game is to attain a total as close to 9 as possible. Aces are worth 1, face cards and tens are worth 0 the remaining cards are worth their face value. If the total of the hand exceeds nine, the value of the right digit is taken. For example, a 9 and a 6 (15) would equate to 5.

The rest of each round is dictated by the following rules:

  • If either the Player's or the Banker's hand totals 8 or 9, neither player receives a third card and the hand closest to nine wins.
  • The Player's hand will always hit on a total of 5 or less and will stand on 6 or higher.
  • If the Player stands, the Banker will also hit on a total of 5 or less and will stand on a total of 6 or more.
  • If the Player takes a third card, the Banker proceeds based on the following table. The Banker’s response is based on the Player's third card.

      0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
    7 S S S S S S S S S S
    6 S S S S S S H H S S
    5 S S S S H H H H S S

    2 H H H H H H H H H H
    1 H H H H H H H H H H
    0 H H H H H H H H H H

        = PLAYER'S THIRD CARD
        = BANKER'S SCORE
    S = STAND
    H = HIT
  • If the hand ends up tied, the tie bet pays 8:1 and all other bets are pushed back.
