Baccarat Winning Basics

Baccarat is a game of chance and skill between you and the Banker. It is played with a single standard deck of 52 cards. There are three types of bets and the game odds are high.

The objective of the casino game is to predict whose hand, the Banker’s or the Player’s, will be closer to the value of nine. You can also bet on the possibility of a tie.

The following rules apply when playing Baccarat:


The winning hand is the one with a value closest to nine.

The value of a hand is calculated by adding up the total of the cards. The card values are:

Card Face Value

(Any Suit)

Card Point Value
King 0
Queen 0
Jack 0
10 0
9 9
8 8
7 7
6 6
5 5
4 4
3 3
2 2
Ace 1

If the total of a hand exceeds nine, the value of the hand is the “unit” portion of the total. For more information, see the examples below.

If the hand you bet on wins, you are paid out according to the Payout Schedule.
