Based On Punto Banco

It may be one of the best online casino game options these days, but the game actually is a few centuries old. Several different forms of Baccarat exist, but the one that is played most widely is also known as Punto Banco. Punto is the name given to the Player hand, and Banco is the name of the Banker hand.

The most important aspects of the variation, and the reason it is the preferred edition for casinos online, is that the dealer plays out moves for both hands, as determined by the rules. This means you do not need to get all flustered when trying to remember complex rules in the heat of the moment. Instead, predict the winner, and let the dealer get on with all the hard work.

How to Play

Get your Baccarat action started at Spin Casino by selecting one of the top-class editions in our collection. Adjust the bet settings to suit your preferences once it has launched, and then place your bet on the player, the banker, or a tie between them. 2 cards will be dealt to you, and 2 to the dealer.

The next stage of the casino game follows, and that is when the dealer will score the hands, and then make any moves that are necessary. If the Player hand scores between 6 and the 9-point maximum, the hand must stay, and will not receive a new card. The hand must hit (take another card) if it scores 5 points or less. Find out which hand comes out tops when new scores are compared.

Scoring and Payouts

9 points might seem like a strange maximum number of points needed for a Baccarat win. However, thanks to the best online casino software and to the way hands are scored, scores cannot exceed that number. Jacks, Queens and Kings are worth 0 points, Aces count as 1 point, and cards 2 to 9 are worth their value in points.

If the player hand adds up to 13 points, the 10 will be ignored, which means the score adjusts to 3. In that case, the hand must hit. Win a payout of 1:1 if your Player bet was successful. See your bet pay out 1:1 less 5% commission if your choice of the Banker proved to be the correct one. Reap the best rewards of all if your winning bet was a tie, because it pays out a fantastic 8:1.
