Baccarat is played with one standard deck of 52 playing cards that is shuffled before each game.
The objective of the game is to predict if the Banker or Player's hand will be closer to the value of 9, or if the hands will tie.
The Player's first card is always dealt before the Banker's first card.
King's, Queen's, Jack's and Ten's have a zero point count. If both the Banker’s hand and your hand have the same value, the hands tie. Malfunctions void all plays and pays.
BETTING AND PAYOUT RULES
If you placed a Tie bet and win, you are paid out at odds of 8:1on your regular bet amount.
If the hands tie and you did not place a Tie bet, your bet is returned to you.
Banker bets are paid less a 5% commission.
The 5% commission is only charged on winning bets.
THIRD CARD RULES
If the Player stands and the Banker's hand has a value of 5 or less, the Banker receives a third card.
If the Banker or Player's hand has a value of 8 or 9, both hands automatically stand. This rule overrides all others.
If the Player's hand has a value of 5 or less, the Player receives a third card.
