Mini-Baccarat and Midi Baccarat Gaming Guide

The object of the game of mini-baccarat/midi-baccarat is to get a point count closest to 9 on whichever of two possible hands the player wagers. All cards count at face value. All tens and face cards or any combination of them have no value. For example: 9+5=4; Jack+1=1. There are three ways to wager; the Banker Hand, the Player Hand or the Tie. Winning Banker and Player hands pay 1 to 1 and a 5% commission is charged on all winning Banker wagers which is collected either prior to reshuffling the cards at the end of a shoe or when the customer leaves the game. After all customers have made their bets, the dealer draws four cards from the shoe. The first and third cards are the Player Hand and the second and fourth cards are the Banker Hand. If the point count total of either hand is 8 or 9 on the first two cards, the game is over and no more cards will be drawn. If not, the Player Hand will draw a third card if that hand totals 0 through 5. The value of the third card drawn will determine if the Banker Hand receives a third card. The Player Hand stands on 6 or 7 and the Banker Hand stands on 7, 8 or 9 or whenever the rules to the game dictate. No more than one additional card will be drawn to each hand. The hand closest to 9 wins. If both the Banker and Player Hand result in identical totals, neither one wins nor loses and any player who has wagered on the Tie wins at odds of 8 to 1. In Mini-Baccarat, players may not touch, handle, remove or alter any cards used in the play of Mini-Baccarat. Wagers must be made in increments of $ 5. When wagering only the tie, the wager must meet the table minimum.
