Baccarat, how to play baccarat


 The 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 4+6=10=0

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.
