There are a total of 8 decks (416 cards) of cards used in the game of classic Baccarat. Each card worth less than ten is worth its face value. Aces are worth one point, while tens, jacks, queens, and kings are all worth zero. The second digit will automatically become the hand value whenever the sum of the card values reaches two. The hand with the closest number of points to nine is the one that prevails.
The Banker’s hand and the Player’s hand are the two hands dealt in the game of Baccarat. Cards are first dealt to “Player” first; if either player’s or the banker’s card totals 8 or 9 after the initial round of dealing, both players stand, and no additional cards are drawn. This is referred to as a “natural win.” However, in accordance with the “Three Card Rules,” a third card may or may not be dealt if there is no winner after the first round of cards is given.
Aside from these standard side bets, you can also place wagers on Big/Small, Banker/Player Pair, Any Pair, Perfect Pair, Bonus Play, and Super Six.
While Insurance Baccarat refers to a wager that is made available to a player at fixed odds in accordance with the Baccarat Insurance Pay Table prior to the third card being dealt to either the Player or Banker hand, depending on the Baccarat Table of Play.
