# Baccarat Multiplayer Betting Rules

## What is Baccarat Multiplayer?

Baccarat, also known as Punto Banco, is one of the oldest and most popular games in casinos all over the world. It is especially popular among high-rollers and Asian gamblers. In Macau, baccarat is extremely dominant. Although the game seems serious and elegant, it is really as simple as betting on the flip of a coin. Played between two hands, the Player and the Banker. The game offers three table limits that contain multiple tables to enter.

The game use 8 decks of cards to play. At the starting of the shoe, there shall be shuffling animation, placing a yellow card between 52-76 cards from the back of the shoe then place the shuffled card to the shoe. One card will be drawn from the shoe, the system will burn some cards based on the drawn card’s value. Ace = burn one card, 2-10 = burned card amount based on the value, Jack = eleven cards, Queen = twelve cards and King = thirteen cards.

Cards are given point values as follows: Ace = 1, 2-9 = pip value, 10 and face cards = 0.

Play begins by all players betting either on the Player or Banker. There are also side bets on Tie, Player Pair and Banker Pair.

After betting timer is up, the system gives two cards each to the Player and Banker hands.

The maximum number of points in both the Player and Banker hands is 9. The way to arrive at the points per hand is to take the total points of each individual card in the hand. If the sum is more than 9, then drop the first digit. For example, if either hand had a 9 and 7, then you would drop the 1 from the total of 16, for a 6-point hand.

A third card may or may not be dealt to either the Player or Banker hands, depending on the drawing rules.

Note:  Malfunctions of any sort (software or hardware) voids the play.
