Playing the Game Online
When you play Baccarat at JackpotCity online casino Ireland, you leave the results of the game entirely in the hands of Lady Luck. Apart from placing a bet at the beginning of the round, you do not make any moves, as the score of the hand dictate all moves.
Cards 2 to 9 are worth their given value, Aces are worth 1 point, and 10s, Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 0. A hand score is worked out by adding the values of the cards. If the result is 10 or higher, the 10+ is ignored, and the number on the right is taken as the score.
Your betting options include betting on either the player’s or the banker’s hand to win, or on the 2 hands to draw. In some games, the 2 are known as Punto and Banco, respectively.
How Moves Are Made
Baccarat is a card-comparing game, so the 2 hands are compared to determine which one wins by being the closest to 9 points. Even though you do not make any moves, there are some to be made.
If the player’s hand is valued at 6, 7, 8, or 9 points, the hand stays. However, if it is worth 5 points or less, it must hit, and will receive a third card. The banker’s hand will also receive another card.
The hands will be compared once any such moves have been made. A winning player’s hand bet usually pays out 1:1, whereas a winning banker’s hand bet pays out 1:1 minus a commission of 5 percent. If a draw bet wins, the payout is a whopping 8:1. Place your bets at our online casino.
