Goal of the Game
To predict which hand will have a point value closest to nine (9).
How to Play
In Mini-Baccarat, there are three possible outcomes to wager on; the player hand, the banker hand, or the tie. Four cards are dealt face up in front of the dealer: a banker hand and a player hand. Individual players do not receive any cards.
The player hand and the banker hand are each dealt two initial cards. Based on the individual point totals of the player hand and banker hand, a third card may be dealt. See details in “Third Card Rule” section. The hand with a point value closest to nine (9) wins. To determine point value, cards in the hand are added together and the last digit is used to declare the winner (e.g. 8+8=16, total of the hand = 6).
Face cards (Kings, Queens, Jacks) and tens count as 0
Aces count as 1
All other cards are counted at face value
