Although the game od Baccarat may seem intimidating, it is actually quite simple. It is especially popular with high rollers and Asian gamblers. The objective of online Baccarat is for the player to draw a two or three card hand with a value closer to 9 than the banker’s hand.

Cards in Baccarat

In Baccarat the game is played with a six deck shoe with each deck containing 52 cards. After each game ends the cards are reshuffled for the new game. The value of cards in online Baccarat is determined in the following way:

  • Cards 2 – 9 are their face values.
  • 10, J, Q, and K are all valued at 0 – zero.
  • An Ace is counted as 1 point in Baccarat.
  • The value of a hand depends on the total sum of points you get by adding up the cards received. All baccarat hands have values in the 0 to 9 range, but in Baccarat only the last digit of the total is used. Let’s say a hand contains a 9, and two Aces, Ace is valued as 1 (9 + 1 + 1 = 11, the last digit is 1). For any total that is two digits, the left number is simply dropped.
