Basic Instructions (North American Baccarat)Prior to any cards being dealt, you must decide who is going to win and bet on them.
Once all bets are placed, The Player and The Banker are each dealt two cards face down. (Usually it is dealt in the every-other-one fashion.)
Their goal is to try to get a 9 (natural) with the first two cards so that they can "Stand". Anything adding to or being a "ten" will give them zero points (a.k.a. a "baccarat"); which may make them lose, if they get draw a third card and it is also a "ten" or makes the total become ten.
To know how the cards add up, check out the following table:
Now that you know what they are worth, the following rules will apply.
This is a complex game because you need to understand how someone can win and then bet on which party will win in order to win yourself.
Here is an example to make it a bit clearer:
If you bet on The Player and they win, you get 2:1.
Winning bets on The Banker pays you 2:1 with a subtraction of 5% commission for The Banker.
Tie bets are paid out at 9:1 if you bet on them, and if you didn't bet on them, your original wager is returned to you.
In the instance that you select to play Progressive Baccarat, in order to have the chance to win the jackpot, you must place a bet on the progressive option and win the hand that you bet on.
Like many online casino games, baccarat is a game of luck and chance and you needn't have any true skill outside of guessing in order to play it successfully.
