The name Baccarat (BAH-ka-rah) is derived from the Italian baccara, which means zero. The term refers to the face cards and 10s, all of which have zero value in the game. In Europe, Baccarat and a similar version called Chemin de Fer, are among the most popular casino games.
The object of Baccarat is to bet on which of the two hands dealt will total closest to nine.
Baccarat is the easiest card game in the casino to play. You only need to make one decision in Baccarat: where to place your bet. You can place your bet on the PLAYER, BANKER or TIE. (BANKER and PLAYER are only names of hands and do not indicate hands for the house or player.) The dealer, according to the Game Rules, completes the hand. If your bet is on the hand closest to nine, you win!
Card values are as follows:
Initially, four cards are dealt. Two cards to the PLAYER hand and two cards to the BANKER hand. Depending on the value of each hand, a third card may be drawn on one or both hands according to the charts below.
PLAYING THE GAME|
The game starts when you place a bet. The details of placing bets can be read in Placing Bets on Table Games. It is strongly recommended that you read these Common Factors before playing. As mentioned in the Overview, you can make a bet on the BANKER, PLAYER or TIE. A combination of these bets can also be made.
In addition to the standard menu options, Baccarat has a Statistics option. When you click on this option a display pops up showing the history of the last 13 outcomes.
Note: The Pass button to the right side of the Deal button is used in multi-player Baccarat only. It has no use in the single player game.
A chat window will automatically pop-up every time you enter Multi-Player Baccarat at The Good Luck Club. You may chat with others at the table by typing in a message at the bottom of the chat window and pressing Enter. If you prefer not to chat, you may close the chat window by clicking on the "x" button in the top right hand corner of the chat window. You may reopen the chat window at any time by clicking on "Chat" in the top menu bar.
