Before playing EZ Baccarat™, you might benefit from learning about certain notions of the game.

These helpful tips and basic rules will give you a sense of what to expect before you get to the casino.

Once you are at the table, don’t hesitate to ask the dealer any questions you may have.

Helping you understand how the game is played is part of their job.

EZ Baccarat™ tables can be easily identified by their red playing surface. A special marker is used to indicate spots reserved for players who have temporarily left the table. The dealer will exchange your money for value chips and you may place your bet in the betting spot indicated on the table before the first card is dealt.

These spots may be used until the absent player returns. All bets must be placed before the dealer draws the first card from the shoe.

You must respect the minimum and maximum limits indicated at the table when placing your bets.

You may wager on the Player hand (Joueur) or on the Banker hand (Banque).

You may also wager on a tie (Égalité), Panda and Dragon.

Face cards and tens count as 0, Aces count as 1 and all other cards are counted at face value. With each hand being dealt, the first and third cards dealt from the shoe make up the Player hand, and the second and fourth cards, the Banker hand.

The value of each hand is the last digit of the sum of the cards. Once the cards are distributed, the dealer announces the point count for each hand.

If the total of one of the two hands, each made up of two cards, is 8 or 9, the hand is called a Natural, and no other cards are dealt for the Player hand or the Banker hand. Dragon 7™ side bet A Dragon 7™ side bet wins if the Banker hand wins with a total of seven obtained with three cards.
