Baccarat is one of the easiest casino
games to learn and play.
This ancient
game of chance is played with eight decks
of cards with up to seven people playing at
once. The cards are shuffled by the dealer
and then reshuffled and placed in a box
called a shoe. There are no options in the
game on drawing or standing. The
draw/stand rules are outlined below.

The object of the game is to come as close to the
number nine as possible. Face cards and tens, or
any other combination of cards totaling ten, count
as zero. The ace is counted as one, the deuce is
counted as two, etc.
Game Play
The game begins when the shoe is passed to the first player. The first and third
cards dealt from the shoe constitute the “player’s” hand and the second and
fourth cards constitute the “banker’s” hand. The dealer announces the point
counts. If either hand has a point count of eight or nine, it is a “natural” and no
additional cards are drawn. If neither hand has a natural, an additional card is
drawn face up for the player’s and banker’s hands based on the draw/stand rules.
The hand with a point count closest to nine wins. If both hands total the same
number, it is a tie.
Bets
There are three ways to bet in Baccarat. All players can bet on the banker’s hand
or the player’s hand, or a tie. These bets are placed before the dealer calls “no
more bets” and the cards are dealt. A bet on the banker’s hand wins if the banker’
s hand has a point count higher than the player’s hand. A bet on the player’s
hand wins if the player’s hand has a point count higher than the banker’s hand. It
is a tie if the point counts are equal. Winning bets are paid even money, however,
all winning bank hands are charged a 5% commission. Tie bets pay 8 to 1.
