Baccarat is extremely simple; the main objective is to get as close as possible to value of 9 on either hand of the cards dealt. And with just three wager options, all you need to do is select where you what you want to put your money on; the banker, player or the tie bet.
Let’s talk values:
Each card has a value; 10’s, Jacks, Queens and Kings have the infamous value of; Zero. Whereas cards between 2 to 9 carry their face value, so those stated on the card itself, and the Aces have a value of 1.
Shall we draw?
With 4 cards drawn in every game; 2 to the banker and 2 to the player, and both trying to get score a 9 or be as close as they can, all you need to do is bet who will win, or if they’ll tie.
The score is the sum of all cards, so if you’re given an 8 card and a King, then your overall score is; 8. And any sum that reaches two digits must drop the left digit, for example a 6-value card and a 7-value card are dealt, then the score is of 13, though the actual hand value is now; 3.
How about another?
If the player’s cards are below 5, then they can draw another card. If the player or banker has a value of 6 or 7, they must stand and no card is drawn. But if the banker’s hand is below 2, they must draw a card, and if they’re between a 3-6 value they can choose to draw a third card – depending on the player’s hand. Both the player and the banker can have a max of 3 cards on the table, it’s that easy!
