Baccarat: strategy and rules
- Baccarat rules are fairly similar to the basic blackjack rules. The only difference being, you make your bet before the cards are dealt.
- You can bet on the "Player" winning, the "Banker" winning or perhaps you predict a tie or "push", well you can wager on that too. In video Baccarat you don’t actually receive any cards – these are just the names for those 2 hands. There is no ‘Player’ or ‘Banker’
- Your value aim is 9 instead of 21 as it is in original Blackjack.
- The centre of the table is where 2 hands are dealt. The first hand is the Players hand; the second is the Banker cards. Predict which hand you'll risk is the highest. Your objective is to get as close as you can to a combined value of 9.
- Wager on a push and you're right, then you are rewarded with a pot that is 9:1 of your wager.
- Cards 2-9 are worth their value. Aces have a value of 1, 10s, Jacks, Queens and Kings are worth 0.
- Hands are 2 cards each and the amount is worked out by totalling them. If they equal 10 or more, you receive the first digit. Here’s an example, if you score an 8 and a 2, the total is 10 however that would calculate to a score of 0. Or if you have a 4 and a 9, which adds up to 13 – your score would be 3.
- Whether the Player or Banker pick up 1 more card each or hold is decided by using the table of play as the decider.
- You get paid even money (1-1) if you win.
- Here’s a little Baccarat trivia for you - Baccarat actually means 0. Funny that the game is named after the most undesirable result!
Online Baccarat is a simple game to get into but the great thing about it is that it will always keep you on your game playing toes.
