Baccarat rules of the game

The game is divided into three different batches: the game is Banco, the Punto, or the Egalite. The Banker and the Player each get two cards, the sum of these two cards closest to nine to win. 10, Knight (J), Queen (Q), King (K) is also calculated as zero, Ace counted as one. If the two cards add up to more than ten, the first number is deducted, for example, if the sum of the two cards is eight plus eight (equal to sixteen), then the value is six. If you get knights (J) and four, it is calculated as zero plus four (equal to four). If both the banker and the player get two cards of the same value, then those who bet on banker and the player can get their bet. You may try at **Malaysia Trusted Online Casino**

In accordance with the following rules, the banker and the players take the third card: - If the sum of the two cards of the banker or the player is eight or nine, both sides must stop taking the card. This is called (kings). - If the player's sum is less than or equal to five, the player can take the third card. - If the player does not take the third card, then the sum of the hands of the banker is six or more, and took the third card in the sum of five or less; if the player took the third card, then, or if there is a rule on the third card.

- If you bet on banker/ players and win, the odds are a compensable one. (If you bet on banker and win, banker will get 5% commission from your bonus)

- If you bet on a draw and win, the odds are a compensable eight.

- If you bet on a pair and win, for example, banker or the player in the first two cards to get a pair, odds for a compensable 11.

**The rules**

**Baccarat** is played from a **six-deck** or an **eight-deck** shoe. All face cards and 10s have no value. Cards less than 10 are counted at face value, **Aces** are worth 1. Suits don't matter. Only single digit values are valid. Any count that reaches a double-digit drops the left digit. 15 is counted as 5 and 25 is also counted as 5.

To start, the players bet either on Banco or Punto or Standoff. The card dealer gives two cards each; first to the player and then the banker. The object of the game is to bet on the hand that you think will have the highest total value.

A third card may be dealt to either or both the player (Punto) and the bank (Banco) based on the following **three-card-rules**. It is not necessary to learn these rules to play, they are compulsory decisions and therefore automatic. Only on rare occasions, a mistake is made:

**Player's third-card-rule**

- If either the player or the bank have a total of 8 or 9 on the first two cards no further cards are drawn. The resulting hand is called a natural and the hand is over.
- If the player's total is less than or equal to 5 the player's hand draws a third card.
- If the player does not draw a third card, then the bank's hand stands on 6 or more and takes a third card on a total of 5 or less. If the player does take a third card then the Bank's third-card-rule below will determine if the bank takes a third card.

**Bank's third-card-rule**

- If the bank's total is 2 or less then bank draws a card, regardless of what the players third card is.
- If the banks total is 3 then the bank draws a third card unless the players third card was an 8.
- If the banks total is 4 then the bank draws a third card unless the players third card was a 0, 1, 8, or 9.
- If the banks total is 5 then the bank draws a third card if the players third card was 4, 5, 6, or 7.
- If the banks total is 6 then the bank draws a third card if the players third card was a 6 or 7.
- If the banks total is 7 then the bank stands.
