This long-time favorite of the upper crust and gaming elite is an elegant and easy-to-master game of chance. In Baccarat, two cards are dealt to a Player’s hand and two to a Banker’s hand.
The goal is to predict which hand will score closest to nine points, the Player, or the Banker. If you“re not convinced either hand will score closer to nine points, you can bet the two hands will tie. It’s that simple.
How to Play
When you open the game Baccarat at Yabby Casino lobby, you will see three sections on the table on which you can bet: Player, Banker, or Tie. This game might seem difficult, but this is one of the best games for beginners. Generally, it requires no skill. Players simply bet on the outcome of two hands between the player and the dealer.
As we already said, the goal of Baccarat is to predict which hand will score closest to nine points. You can bet on the Player’s hand, on the Banker’s hand, or on a Tie. The values of the two cards of each hand are added together, with the object of the game being to achieve a total as close to nine as possible. If the value of the cards is greater than 9 points, drop the digit in the tens position.
For example: If a player is dealt a 6 and a 9, the mathematical value of the hand is 15, but by subtracting 10, the true value becomes 5.
A hand of eight or nine points is considered a “natural” and automatically wins unless there is a tie. If both hands have a “natural”, the hand with the highest point value wins. However, if you bet on the Banker or Player hand and both hands have naturals of equal point value, your bet is pushed back to you. In the event that neither hand has a natural, each hand is dealt a third card according to rules governing how the Player and Banker’s hands are dealt.
Cards 2 through 9 = face value
10’s and Face Cards = 0 points
Aces = 1 point
You have two possibilities to win at Baccarat. If you bet on the hand that has a higher point value and does not tie with the other hand, or if you bet on a Tie and the Banker and Player hand tie.
Rules for drawing the third card
If player’s hand is 0-5 third card must draw, and if it’s hand 6 or 7 it must stand. When the player’s hand 8 or 9 it is called “natural” and means that both hands must stand.
If the banker’s hand is 0-2 third card must draw, when the hand is 3-6 depends on player’s third hand, if it’s 7 must stand and 8 or 9 it is “natural” and both hands stand.
