Baccarat

Introduction

With the 3 types of bet available, Baccarat is a game where a player needs to guess the hand which will be nearer to number nine. There is also a position when dealer and banker’s hands are the same, i.e. have identical value. The chances for winning are quite high.

How to Play

A banker shuffles a standard deck (52 cards) prior to any game.
Down and up buttons are used to choose the size of the chips as well as to raise their bet. Each click brings one chip more.
A player presses banker field if he chooses the hand of the banker as the winner.
A player presses player field if he thinks the hand he has will be the winner.
A player presses tie field if he thinks that the hands will have identical values.
A player and banker get two cards. Sometimes they are given a 3rd card, which depends on the previous 2 cards and rules of the game.
If a player wins, he gets paid.
If not, he loses the game.
Every card is worth different points that are all summed up.
Ten, jack, queen and king bring zero points. All others bring as many points as they are worth, i.e. two brings two, three – three etc.

Bets that are considered banker charge a lower fee of 5%, provided that a player wins the game.
If a player decides not to draw more cards, i.e. end the play, and a banker has cards whose value is five and less, then a banker will receive another card.
If the player’s cards have the value that is five and less, then he gets another card.
If both hands are eight or nine on the value scale, then both of them stand.
