AIM OF THE GAME
Two hands are dealt in baccarat - The banker's
hand and the player's hand. Prior to each deal,
the player wagers on whether the Player's hand
or the Banker's hand is closest to a total of
9. The player also has the option to wager on
a tie (i.e. both the banker's and player's hands
total the same).
HOW TO PLAY
Your chips are stacked by denomination (£1,
£5, £25, £100, £500) at
the bottom of the screen. Select the amount you
would like to wager on a given hand by clicking
the left mouse button on the chip of that denomination.
The amount wagered per hand may be increased or
decreased by placing the mouse on the stack that
you wish to add or subtract to your bet and clicking
with either the left or right mouse button. Each
time you click the left mouse button you will
add a chip from that pile to your planned wager
amount. Similarly, by clicking on the right mouse
button you will decrease your planned wager by
the selected chip denomination. Your total bet
will be displayed in the "Bet" field.
You may repeat your last bet by simply hitting
the "0" button of your numeric keyboard.
Other keyboard shortcuts are summarised below.
There are three types of bets a player may wager
on - the Player's hand, the Banker's hand, or
the Tie bet. A combination of these bets can also
be made. Place your wagered amount by clicking
with the left mouse button on the baccarat table
in the Player's field, the Banker's field, the
Tie field (any number above the Banker's field),
or any combination of these within the betting
limits. You start the round by pressing the Deal
After the Deal button is pressed, the Player
and Banker are dealt two cards. All tens and picture
cards are worth zero, aces are worth 1, and all
other cards are worth their face value. If the
value of cards exceeds 9, then the value is adjusted
by subtracting 10 from the total.
Hand Hand Total
10+9=19 "Natural" 9
After the first two cards are dealt to both the
Player and Dealer, a third additional card may
be dealt but the player does not ask for a third
card. All additional cards are subject to a third
card rule. No hand receives more than three cards.
When the Player and Banker hands equal the same
total, the hand is declared a Tie.

If the Player's two cards total:
0-5 Players Hand Must Draw

After the Player's Hand acts on a third card draw,
the Banker's Hand receives a third card according
to these rules:
Banker's Hand Draw?

7 Banker's Hand Must Stand
