Mini Baccarat is an online table game offered by the company Play’N Go. It is a very fun game of chance, easy to play with its table smaller than that of classic baccarat.
In the Mini Baccarat table game , the objective is to find a score as close as possible to 9, by totaling the values of the cards in hand. When this total is greater than or equal to 10, the first digit (ten) is removed and only the value of the unit counts. Example: if the total of the cards is 14, the value of the hand is read as 4. And between the dealer and the player, the one with the highest score wins the game.
The Baccarat rules want the Aces count 1, the cards 2 through 9 retain their face value, while 10 and face cards are worth 0.
Each time the player wins, the machine always removes a 5% commission on his win.
The player must first place his bet on the Mini Baccarat table. Then he clicks on the “Deal” button: the player then receives two cards face up, and the croupier too.
When the player or the dealer has a score of 8 or 9 with his first two cards, it is said that there is a “natural hand”. No action is therefore allowed: the two opponents are immediately subjected to the comparison of their score.
If the player has an initial score between 0 and 5, he must draw a third card. If his initial score is 6 or 7, he stands upright: that is, he does nothing. He is just waiting for the dealer to make his bet so that he can compare their hand.
The dealer’s action depends on the value of his own hand, and also on the value of the third card drawn by the player. Either he draws a third card or he stands.
Apart from the base bet, the Mini Baccarat player can also place an additional bet on tie hands. It is a question of betting on a draw between the player and the croupier, one also says “a bond”. This bet pays 8 times the value of the stake if the game ends in a tie. The player therefore loses his stake if the scores are not identical.
