Baccarat Online & Online Baccarat

 

Online Baccarat Online Baccarat is a card game that is dealt from a virtual shoe that holds 6 or 8 decks of cards. Two hands are dealt by the house dealer, the banker hand and the player hand.

Before the hands are dealt, bets may be placed on the banker hand, on the player hand, or on a tie. Winning bets on banker or player are paid 1:1, but a commission of 4-5% is charged on bank bets. Tie bets are paid 8:1 or 9:1 depending on the casino. If there is a tie, bets on the banker or player are returned. Once a bet has been placed it's final then the hands are dealt according to rules, resulting in final hands of either 2 or 3 cards for each.

The value of a hand is determined by adding the values of its individual cards. Tens and face cards are counted as zero, while all other cards are counted by the number of pips on the card face. Only the last digit of the total is used, so all baccarat hands have values in the range 0 to 9. The hand with the higher value wins; if the hands have the same value, the result is a tie.

Rules for the player hand:
If the player's first 2 cards total 6 or more, then the player must stand without drawing a card. If the player's first 2 cards total 5 or less, the player must draw 1 additional card.

Rules for the banker hand:
If the banker's first 2 cards total 7 or more, then the banker must stand without drawing a card. If the banker's first two cards total 0, 1, or 2, then the banker must draw one card. If the banker's first 2 cards total 3, 4, 5, or 6, then whether the banker draws is determined by the whether the player drew, and if so the value of the player's draw card.
