Baccarat is a sophisticated, yet simple, casino game. Baccarat is a card game played with a regular 52-card deck. It is purely a game of chance, with no skills required.
Rules of the Game
Baccarat’s rules are easy to understand. Baccarat doesn’t require any particular skills or tactics. It’s purely a game of chance. Baccarat requires very little involvement from the player – all he or she has to do is choose one of the following three outcomes:
- Banker/dealer wins
- Player wins
Punters place their bets on the Banker, Player or Tie sections of the table. Once their bet has been placed, the game begins. The Player and Banker are given two cards each. When the Player or Banker has eight or nine points, the game finishes. According to the rules, the hand with the most points (the closest to nine) wins. If neither the Player nor the Banker has eight or nine points, a final card is drawn to decide the round.
This is how the third-card rule affects both the Player and the Banker.
- The Player draws a third card if his two-card total is less than five.
- The Player does not draw an extra card if his two-card total is less than eight or nine.
- When the Player doesn’t draw a third card, the Banker will only draw a third card if his or her two-card total is no higher than five.
- If the Banker’s two-card total is eight or nine, he won’t draw a card.
- If the Banker’s two-card total is seven, the dealer stands.
- If the Player draws a third card, the Banker will only draw a third card if:
- The Banker’s two-card total is two or less.
- The Banker’s two-card total is three, and the third card of the Player isn’t an eight.
- The Banker’s two-card total is four, and the Player’s third card isn’t a zero, a one, an eight or a nine.
- The Banker’s two-card total is a five, and the Player’s third card is a four, a five, a six or a seven.
- The Banker’s two-card total is six, and the Player’s third card is a six or a seven.
Here is a list of the payouts, according to the type of bet and outcome:
- A wager on the Player will pay even money (1:1).
- A wager on the Banker will pay even money, but taxed at 5%.
- A wager on a tie pays 8:1.
- In the event of a draw, the wager will be refunded.
Blackjack is also the best hand that consists of any ace and any ten-valued card in the initial two-card hand. When a Blackjack appears, whether for the Player or for the House, no other cards are drawn. Blackjack is an automatic winner, except against another Blackjack, in this case the hand is a Push (also called a Tie or Stand-Off).
If drawing additional cards by either the Player or the House results in a card total exceeding 21, that hand has “too many” and is considered to have Bust. A Bust Player hand loses automatically. When this occurs, the House will not draw a third or any additional cards for the House hand, and that hand is finished.
On any two-card hand, the Player may choose to double their bet. This allows the Player the opportunity to win double.
If the Player decides to Double, an additional bet will be placed alongside the initial bet, which has to be placed a wager at a value equal to the initial bet. One card will be dealt automatically to the Player’s hand. Only ONE card will be drawn for this Double bet (Box).The Player will not be allowed to draw more than one additional card.
If the Player decides not to Double, the game will continue as normal.
The Player has to decide whether to Hit, meaning to draw an additional card(s) or to stand, meaning to retain the current hand.
The House has to Hit or Stand according to the House Rules.
If the exposed House card is an Ace, the Player will be offered the opportunity to buy Insurance. If the House hand has Blackjack. The Player will receive payout odds of 2-1 for the insurance bet. If the House does not have Blackjack, the Player loses the Insurance bet and the game then continues as usual.
If the Player feels that the initial two-card hand is not strong enough to beat the House hand, Player may choose to Surrender by forfeiting half of their bet before any further cards has been drawn. Surrender cannot be taken (accepted) against a dealer’s ace.
Any initial 2 cards dealt with identical or same value e.g. 5 and 5, Player can Split it into 2 different hands and the amount of bet to be placed in the new hand shall be the same with the original bet.
The Player must draw at least 1 card for each hand. The Dealer shall deal a second card to the first of the ‘Split’ hands and shall complete the Player’s decision in respect of that hand before proceeding to deal any cards to the second Split and. Players can Split a ‘hand’ up to a maximum of 3 hands.
For an Ace pair Split, Players will receive only 1 card to each Ace and may not elect to split again.
This is the next best hand after a Blackjack. It consists of three or more cards totaling 21.
Payoff – 1.5 : 1
How To Play
In Blackjack, the Player play against the Dealer. The Dealer initially deals two cards to the Player and one card to himself. The Player has the opportunity to draw extra cards and improve his total.
To win, the Player’s total (without exceeding 21) must be greater than the Dealer’s total.
- Double / Double Down: after the Player receives his first two cards, the Player may bet an additional amount equal to or less than his original bet (but not less than the table minimum). When the Player doubles, the Player receives only one additional card.
- Pair Bet: an option bet on the result of the first two cards with the same face value or same court cards (Jack, Queen, King, or Ace).
- Split / Splitting Pairs: if the Player’s first two cards are of the same face value, then the Player may choose to play each of the cards separately, putting up a bet of equal amount for each one. If the split is Aces, then the Player receives one card on each Ace.
- If the Player’s total is the same as the Dealer’s, then it is a Stand Off.
- If the Player’s total is over 21 or less than the Dealer’s, then the Player’s hand loses or ‘Busts’.
- If the Player’s total is 16 or less, then the Dealer draws a card.
- If the Player’s total is 17 or more, then the Dealer stands.
- If the Player’s total is 21, then the Player does not take another card.
- The Player may stand on any total.
- When the first two cards of the Player are pictures or 10 + Ace, the Player is paid 3 to 2, unless the Dealer gets a Blackjack.
