What is Baccarat?
Baccarat is one of the easiest games to learn and offers some of the best odds in the casino. The game is played with multiple decks shuffled together. The “player” and the “banker” each receive two cards, and the object is to achieve the point total closest to 9. You can bet that the point total of the player’s hand will win, that the banker’s hand will win, or that their hands will tie. Either hand may draw an additional card. Face cards and tens have no value. If the point total exceeds 9, the first digit is dropped. So, 8 and 7 total 5, and 6 and 4 total 0. A tie bet pays 8 to 1. When the hands tie, all banker and player wagers “push” (neither winning nor losing).
