Baccarat is one of the best known casino games; it’s popular online and at land based casinos. This is why we weren’t surprised to find a new version from Oryx Gaming, which has a striking blue cloth but the same rules that we know and love.
How to play Baccarat
Baccarat is one of only a few casino games where you can wager on the player, banker or even a draw. The aim is to get a total of 9 and the hand closest wins, but the one thing that differs is the value of each card.
Cards numbered 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 all have their face value. 10 and Face cards are worth nothing and Aces are worth 1. If you happen to draw a hand over 9 10 will automatically be subtracted to give your overall number.
Once the game loads you can decide whether to wager on the players hand (pays 1:1), dealers hand (19:20) or a draw (9:1) by placing a chip (or chips) on your choice. Two cards are then dealt to the dealer and player, which pays out if the player or banker stands. A third card is dealt if either of the player draws a total of 0 to 5.
After the game finishes you’ll get the chance to place the same bet, a new bet or you can just go on your merry way. The choice is yours.
