How to Play Baccarat?

The object of the game is to choose the winning hand, Player or Banker. It means, you can wager on three things: the player's hand winning, the dealer's hand winning, and a tie.

The game is played with 52 cards. Players make wagers. Two-card hand is dealt out to player and a banker. In order to know whether the player should receive the third card or not, the totals are compared and some drawing rules are used. The same happens for the banker.

Card values:

  • Aces count as 1;

  • Tens, Jacks, Queens and Kings count as 0;

  • All other cards, 2-9, count as their pip value, or 2-9;

  • Total hand values are 0 to 9, as ten is subtracted from any total of more than 9. If the player has 4-9-3, the total of 16 becomes 6, by dropping the first digit. Two 10's, or 20, becomes zero.


The player always acts first. Two cards are turned over and the dealer calls out the total. Then banker’s cards are revealed. If there is any total of 6 through 9, player stands, cards are not drawn. A total of 8 or 9 is a winner against any banker hand, except for the 8 or 9. In case the same totals, the hand is a tie. If a player has 8 and the banker – 9, the banker wins.

If the Player's first two cards are 6, 7, 8 or nine, they stand. If the Player's first two cards total five or less, they hit and receive a single card. Their play is now finished.

The banker stands on two-card total of 7, 8, 9.

The Banker always hits on a two-card total of zero, 1, 2 and 3 excluding the situation when the Banker will hit a total of 3 against a Player total of 8. The Banker will hit with a total of 4 against a Player total of 2 through 7; Hit with a 5 against a Player total of 4 through 7; Hit with a 6 against a Player total of 6 and 7;

We wish you good luck!
