PUNTO BANCO

 

Players may bet on the Bank (Banco) or the Player (Punto) at even money (except when the Bank wins with 6, in that case it pays only 1 to 2). Guests may also bet the Tie (Egalite) at odds of 8 to 1.

 

VALUE OF THE CARDS

  • ACE: count value of 1. 
  • PICTURE or 10: count value 0. 
  • All other cards are counted at face value.

 

The object of the game is to come closest to the point of 9. Hands shall comprise of two or three cards, drawn according to the TABLEAUX (see below).

 

To determine the point, the last figure of the total value of the hand should be taken. A point of 0 shall be termed "Baccarat". A natural is a point of 8 or 9 in the first two cards, to the Bank or Player. The first and third cards are to the Punto, the second and fourth cards are to the Banco. The drawing of any additional cards shall be determined by the TABLEAUX.
