How to play Baccarat
A Baccarat hand
The Banker will deal the player two face-up cards and deal themselves two-face up cards.
BACCARAT PRO TIP: Read the table before you join. Table games are more fun when you’re playing with people you enjoy!
Players bet before the deal begins, placing their bets in front of them in the designated betting areas.
Baccarat has very simple but specific rules:
Cards numbered from 2-9 are worth their face value
Face cards & 10s are worth 0 points
Aces are worth 1 point
SCORING A HAND
Once the points value reaches a double digit, the second digit will automatically become the value of the hand.
With this rule, a hand of 10 is worth 0, a hand of 11 is worth 1, a hand of 12 is worth 2, and so on. After the total points reach 10, simply drop the first digit and that is the score of the hand.
A hand that is split as 9 and 6 would add up to 15, and therefore has a point value of 5.
