The Rules of Baccarat
 
It is believed that the game of Baccarat originated in Italy, around 1490. The word baccarat is derived from the Italian word "baccara", meaning zero, and refers to the zero value given to all of the face cards and tens. Eventually Baccarat evolved into European Baccarat and the French game Chemin de Fer (French for "railroad" - probably depicting the shoe as a train traveling around the table). By mid-century Baccarat had become the game of choice for the French nobility, and is currently among the most popular casino games. Contrary to its appearance, Baccarat is one of the simplest games to play. The version of baccarat that is played today came from the Capri Casino in Havana, Cuba.

The player makes only two decisions, before each hand is dealt - selection of the position he/she believes will win the next hand ("player", "banker" or "tie"), and determining the amount of the wager. The object of Baccarat is to wager on the hand that will win with a point total of 9, or as close to it as possible. Cards from 2-9 are counted at their face value, aces are worth 1, and picture cards and tens are counted as 0 (suits do not matter). The player has no decisions to make during the game itself. Our Baccarat game is played with 6 decks of cards, which are shuffled after each round.

Playing the Game of Baccarat

Each round begins when the player bets on the 'player', 'banker' or a 'tie'. After the player's bet is placed, the player and the dealer (banker) receive each two cards. The score of each hand appears to the left of the cards.
For example: If the player's two cards are '4' and '9', then their total is 13, and the score (that appears to the left of the player's cards) is '3'. The score always ranges from 0 to 9. A third card may or may not be dealt to the player, dealer or both.
Note: If either the player or the banker has a score of 8 or a 9 they both stand (this is called a 'natural').

The scores of the player and dealer are compared, and the winner is the one with the highest score. Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1, winning bets on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even money less a 5% commission) and winning bets on a tie pay 9 to 1.
Note: In case of a 'tie', all bets placed on 'player' or 'banker' are returned to the player.

Playing as Dealer


Online Casino Good Luck Dealer Casino offers you the unique option of playing the role of the Dealer. This option increases your chances of winning, since you gain some of the favorable odds reserved for the casino. At the end of every round the casino takes a commission of 1.5% of the total bets bet against the Dealer.

Example
A Dealer chooses to play in Table II. This means that the Dealer meets the minimum requirements for playing in this table type: a minimum of 50 Credit Points and a minimum balance of $500. The system then matches a Player to the Dealer and after the Dealer 'Approves' the next round, the Player places his/her bets on the table. Notice that the view of the table has changed to that of the Dealer's. Let's say the Player places $10 on 'Banker'. The Player's first two cards are '10','3', and the Dealer's first two cards are '10,'K'. According to the rules of Baccarat, the Player draws a third card and receives a '10'. Therefore, the Dealer must draw a third card and receives a 'Q'. The Player's score is '3' and the Banker's score is '0'. The Player loses his/her bet and since the bet against the Dealer was $10 the casino takes a commission of 1.5%*10 = $0.15, which means the Dealer wins 10-0.15 = $9.85 on this round.

Minimum Credit Points and Balance
You can play as Dealer once you have accumulated enough Credit Points and in addition you need to have enough money in your Balance, according to the game's limits described in the Game Options page.

The Minimum Balance required is a bit higher than the total winnings of the Player in a given round, which are: 9 * (Maximum Bet) + 1.5%(Casino commission) * (Maximum Bet)

Game Options
" Approve" Button / 'Auto-Approve' Feature
When playing as Dealer, before each round commences you must 'Approve' the next round. After you approve the round, the Player can place his/her bets and play the round. The 'Auto-Approve' feature lets you automatically approve the next rounds, without having to approve every round individually.

Disconnections
Communication problems over the Internet may cause sudden disconnections. We have designed our software to cope with such incidents in a manner that our clients will be protected from unjustifiable loss, while eliminating the possibility of intentional disconnections and/or system abuse.

Should a disconnection occur after the Dealer pressed the "Approve" button, play will continue until the Player has finished his turn. This has no effect on the Dealer, since the Dealer is played automatically according to the rules of the game.

After connection is re-established the Dealer can enter the "History" page and see the results of the last round ("History" is available for Money mode only).
