How to Play:
In Online Baccarat, you are neither the Player nor the Banker, you simply bet on the hand you think is going to score closer to nine. You can also bet both hands will tie. The bets are placed before the dealing of every new hand. A game is automatically won if the bet was placed on a natural, which is a hand of eight or nine points. If both hands have the same point value, then the bet gets pushed back to you. These are the point values:
Cards 2-9= face value. 10's and Face Cards= 0 points. Aces= 1 point
Once you enter the Baccarat game from The Virtual Casino lobby, you will see the empty table in front of you along with 5 casino chips laid out on the table's border. The value of each of the chips you will see is $1, $5, $25, $100, and $500. You will be able to select the amount you would like to bet on each hand by clicking on those chips, depending on the size of your playable bankroll. If you would like to bet $40 on your next hand, you would simply click the $25 chip once, and then click the $5 chip 3 times to bring the total chip count placed in the betting box to $40. To remove chips from your bet, you simply click on the chips already placed in the betting box and they will be removed and placed back in your bankroll.
(NOTE: you can only remove chips from your bankroll before you have dealt the hand. Once the deal starts, all bets are final.)
