Try your hand at Baccarat which has three betting options: the Player, the Bank or Tie/egalite. Played with eight decks of cards, the object is to get a point count closest to 9. The dealer will deal four cards when the bets are ready – the first and third are the player's hand and second and fourth are the banker's hand. The player's hand is delivered to the player with the highest bet on that hand, and the same applies to the banker's hand.

The dealer will announce the totals for each hand. If the point count for either hand is eight or nine, the result is called a natural and no additional cards are drawn. If there is no natural, an additional card is drawn for the player. Depending on that card face value, an additional card might be drawn for the Banker.

Once the outcome has been decided, the dealer will pick up all losing bets and pay winning bets. A win on a bet on the Player's hand will be paid even money. A win on a bet on the Banker's hand will include a 5% commission on your winnings. If both hands are tie, neither hand wins or loses. Only bets made on the tie wins. Tie bet pays odds of 8 to 1.
