Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    This invention relates generally to the field of gaming, and more specifically to the field of the game of Baccarat game with additional betting option.
  • [0002]
    There are several variations on Baccarat play, depending upon the venue. A basic set of rules follows. There are two hands played in Baccarat—the “player”]hand and the “banker” hand. You can bet on either one. If the hand you bet on wins, you receive an even money (1:1) payoff. There is one other bet you can make—the tie bet. If you make this bet and the two hands tie, you receive an 8:1 payoff. Ties, however, occur less than once out of every ten hands.
  • [0003]
    At the start, each hand receives 2 cards. When necessary, additional cards are drawn according to the rules. The hand closest to 9 wins.
  • [0004]
    10s, Jacks, Queens, and Kings all count as 0. The ace through 9 cards have face values of 1 to 9, respectively. To determine the value of each hand, you simply add the cards. If the total is over 10, the first digit is ignored. So an 8 and a 6 would normally equal 14, but since we disregard the first digit, we instead have a hand of 4. Similarly, a 6 and 4 would equal 0, and a 10 and 9 would equal 9.
  • [0005]
    If the first two cards total 9, the hand is called a “natural” and automatically wins. Two cards totaling 8 is also referred to as a natural, and it wins automatically too, unless the hand it is playing against has a natural as well. When both hands contain a natural, the higher natural hand wins (9 beating an 8). If the hands have equal value, it is a tie.
  • [0006]
    When neither hand has a natural, there is no automatic winner, and additional cards are drawn to determine the outcome of the hand.
  • [0000]
    The Player Hand
  • [0007]
    The player hand is played first, according to the following rules:
    When the first two cards
    equal . . . . . . the player must
    6, 7, 8, or 9 Stand
    Any other value Draw one card
  • [0008]
    The player hand can never receive more than one additional card. The hand must stand after the third card, regardless of its value at that point.
  • [0000]
    The Banker Hand
  • [0009]
    The banker hand is a bit more complicated. How the banker hand gets played is usually determined by what the player hand's third card is. If the player did not draw a third card (i.e. had a 6 or higher), then the banker draws a card only if its first two cards total less than 5. Otherwise, the banker stands.
  • [0010]
    If the player did draw a third card, then the banker plays as follows:
    When the
    banker's first two
    cards equal . . .
    . . . the banker draws if the player's
    third card is:
    3 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10
    4 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
    5 4, 5, 6, 7
    6 6, 7
    . . . the banker will:
    2 or less Always draw
    7, 8, or 9 Always stand

    Wins, Losses, and Ties
  • [0011]
    The hand closest to nine always wins. If there is a natural, it is an automatic winner, and no further cards are drawn.
  • [0012]
    Banker and player bets pay even money when you win. A winning banker bet, however, is subject to a 5% house commission. So, if you made a $5 banker bet and won, you would receive $5.00 minus 5% ($0.25), which would actually be $4.75. If the two hands tie, neither bet wins nor loses any money. If you made a tie bet, however, you would receive an 8:1 payoff.
  • [0013]
    Although banker bets must pay a 5% commission when won, they are still good bets to make since banker hands actually win more frequently than player hands. All things considered, the banker and player bets give you about the same odds. In both cases, the house edge is quite small—in fact, it is only 1.17% on banker bets, and a 1.36% on player bets. From a statistical standpoint, you are slightly better off wagering on the banker, albeit not by much.
  • [0014]
    It is not necessary to memorize the rules to play; They are automatically followed and implemented by the dealer. A player should not be confused with the Player's hand or the Bank, neither of which is the casino. A player may bet either side, i.e., bet either that the Player hand will win, or that the Banker hand will win.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0015]
    It is an advantage of the present invention to provide a casino baccarat game that generates increased enthusiasm from players, the house and onlookers, without disturbing materially the usual and normal play of traditional baccarat.
