Objectives and rules of Baccarat

BACCARAT (บาคาร่า) happens to be a straightforward card game which depends mostly on luck than skill. The reason why the game has become very popular throughout the world is because of being simple. The rules for winning tend to be simple. You will need to get the card that has a total of 9 points or closer to 9.  BACCARAT (บาคาร่า)  has evolved over the centuries from a game that was only played by the loyalty to being a game that is played by everyone. 

The value of the cards

Unlike the other card games where there are many prominences given to the ace,  the queen, the king, or jack, such cards tend to have zero value when it comes to the Baccarat. The authority is the lowest card with one point. From card two to nine, the cards carry the value of the number on the card. 

In BACCARAT (บาคาร่า) what matters is the numeric value of the card and nothing to do with the suits such as the spade, the heart, the diamonds, and the clubs, which are all the same. A 5 on any symbol will carry five as the value, with the other cards the following suit.

Players involved

The one acting as a banker as well as  the two players involved, with the banker being referred to as the Banco while the player is referred to as the Punto, are engaged in the Baccarat game. It means that the game is between the Punto and the Banco. In casinos, there is an additional dealer for the cards who are involved. 

But when you are playing off the casinos, you can play the game minus the card dealer. The players will take turns to distribute the cards amongst each other. In some instances, another player is generally referred to as the standoff, which is optional, and the game can be played minus them. 

The game’s objective is straightforward; you have to get 9 points or points closest to a nine. So the player who gets closest to nine is the winner. The game typically starts with two cards. If the total happens to be a nine or eight, then it is referred to as a natural, and the player who gets the nine, or the eight, is declared the winner. 

If none of the players gets a nine or an eight, then an extra card is given to them. The player getting closest to nine with the new card is the one who wins. The game is typically played with 6 up to 8 deck cards. To start with, the cards are placed facing down. 

When the bets are placed, the cards get opened, with the scores getting calculated. When playing in a casino, there are taxes levied on the wins on the prie pool of both the Punto and the Banco.

Calculation of the score

The card's total is generally calculated by adding the face value that is on the card. If the player has a 6 and an 8,  the total will be 14. The game mode is 10 meaning, the total has to be less than 10. So if the total is a double-digit, the digit on the left is canceled. 

So a total of 14 for a player means they get 4 points. If another card is drawn and it is a 5, then the total now becomes 9, which is natural, and the player wins. If the total becomes more than 10 again, the left digit gets canceled.
