How Baccarat is Played

How Baccarat is Played

In Baccarat, there are ONLY 3 different bets you can place: on the Banker, on the Player, and on a Tie (see image below). These bets are analogous to betting on which of two coins will be heads (if both are heads, it’s a tie). In fact, Baccarat is so simple that the ONLY decision you make is whether to bet on Banker, Player, or on a Tie. The rest is left to fate.

This game could not be any easier.

The Banker or Player win if they have the higher score. If there Scores match, they Tie.

The Objective

The objective of Baccarat is to draw a two- or three-card hand that totals closer to 9.

10, J, K, Q count as 0, A is a 1 and all other cards are face value.

If your total is more than ten, you drop the ten. So a 7-9 hand totals to 6 (16, drop ten).

There is no such thing as a “bust” hand.
