Baccarat Casino Game
The game is played with 8 decks of standard playing cards. The object of the game is to bet that either the Banker’s side or the Player’s side will achieve a ‘point total’ of his hand closest to 9.

If the total value of the hand is a two digit number, the second digit constitutes the ‘point total’. Picture cards and the 10 card will count as 0; all other cards are valued according to their face value, except the Ace, which counts as one.

A bet is placed either on the section marked Player, Banker or Tie. The cards are dealt; 1st card to the Player, 2nd card to the Banker, 3rd card to the Player and the 4th card to the Banker. Additional cards are known as ‘Tableau’. The hand that contains the higher ‘point total’ shall win.

When the Player wins, the bet is paid 1 to 1. When the Banker wins, the bet is paid 1 to 1 except in the case when the Banker wins with a ‘point total’ of 6, then the bet shall be paid at 50% less (half). If the ‘point total’ is the same for both the Player and Banker, it is a Tie (Egalite). Any bets placed in the Tie betting area shall be paid 8 to 1. In the case of a Tie, players may elect to sustain or alter, increase or reduce their original bets for the next hand (Coup).
