There are casino games that you never tire of and Baccarat is one of them. It’s a delight to sit at the table and participate, surrounded by other bettors or just from your living room in front of your pc, on an online casino.
The aim of Baccarat is very simple: you have to place a bet on the hand that you think is winning, that of the banker, that of the laying who is the player who has bet most around the table or on a tie with both hands. So you have three bets that are available, it’s up to you to do the right thing.
The winning hand is the one that is nearest or equal to 9. You will see later that it is not possible for a hand to be greater than 9.
The cards here also take on a different value from what you can know in classic games. This reminds us of blackjack actually, even if the values are not the same.
The cards from 2 to 9 are equal to their face value.
The cards of 10 to the King have a null value, 0 points.
The Ace is worth 1 point.
The rule for counting the hand at Baccarat
We told you a bit earlier than at Baccarat game, a hand can not be greater than nine, it’s simply because there is a rule to apply when you make your account. This rule, some call it the tens rule, or the -10 rule. In fact, when you have an account greater than 9, you must always remove the number representing the tens. Take the example of a hand consisting of a 3 and an 8, this is normally 11 but at Baccarat, when you apply the rule, this is actually 1 since you remove the digit tens.
The rule of the third card to Baccarat
So, you will start with a bet on one of the hands or the tie. It is the banker who actually puts first, then the players around the table, you can bet less than the banker or equal. Anyway the biggest bet becomes the spawn. The spawn and the banker receive two cards each.
It is possible that one of the two hands is equal to 8 or 9. In this case, the other hand must at least be equal, otherwise it loses. An 8 or 9 in the first hand, we call it a “Natural”.
