Baccarat:  Game Rules

  • All cards are worth their face value with the exception of Aces and picture cards. Aces are worth 1 and picture cards (Jack, King, and Queen) are worth 0 (ZERO).
  • Only single digits are possible in baccarat; hence the objective is to get a hand total as close to possible to 9.
  • If your hand total is in double digits for example 16, you must remove the tens place to get your hand value. For example; if your hand total is 16, remove the tens digit, which will leave you with a total hand value of 6.
  • If the dealer or player is dealt a hand total of 8 or 9, the one with a higher hand will win. If the hand totals are equal, tie bets win.
  • The centre of the table is where the hands are dealt. The first hand dealt is for the player and the second is for the dealer.
