Also in Online Baccarat, two cards are dealt to the Player hand and two to the Banker hand. You are not the "Player" or “The Banker.” The Player and The Banker are just hands on which you can bet upon. The goal of Baccarat is to predict which hand will score closest to nine points. You can bet on the Player hand, on the Banker hand, or on the Tie position.
A hand of eight or nine points is considered a “natural” and automatically wins, unless there is a tie. If both hands have a natural, the hand with the highest point value wins. However, if you bet on the Banker or Player hand and both hands have naturals of equal point value; your bet is then pushed back to you. In the event that neither hand has a natural, each hand is dealt a third card according to the table rules governing how the Player and Banker hands are dealt. Please note the rules for the particular table that you are playing at in any casino.
The Point Values are as follows: Cards 2 through 9 = face value, 10's and Face Cards = 0 points and Aces = 1 point. In order to calculate the points you need to add the values of all the cards together. If the value of the cards is greater than 9 points, drop the digit in the tens position. For example: 21 - digit in tens position = 1 point. To Win your bet you will have needed to of placed your bet on the hand that has a higher point value and does not tie with the other hand. If you happened to have bet on a Tie and the Banker and Player hands both tie then you would have won this bet placed !
