You may have known about Baccarat, but what is 3-Card Baccarat? It is another clone of the original Baccarat game with a twist. It is trendy in ASEAN and South East Asia and is played in most casinos in Singapore and Bangkok. Let us delve a little deeper into the 3-Card Baccarat game.
3-Card Baccarat Rulebooks and Odds
The 3-Card Baccarat rules are a wee bit different from the ordinary Baccarat. Here are the salient features of this game-
- Every card is dealt face-up.
- Jack, Queen, and Kings, along with 10, have Zero value
- However, the top imaginable hand is three face cards.
- The remaining cards are worth their face value, and Aces are worth one.
- Aces are worth one.
- When point values are added, only the last digit counts.
- Card suits do not have a role.
So, for example, if you were to receive three fives, and the hand was worth 15, it would be worth six. Since nine is the highest possible score, that is not a bad scenario.
There are specific rules which must be adhered to while adding up the values of the main bet-
- The hand having the highest number of face cards wins
- When the hands have an equal number of face cards, the hand with the highest points win
- When the face cards and the issues are equal then it is a push.
Coming onto Three-Card Baccarat payouts, the winning hand pays even money (1:1). In case the winning hand equals six the payout will be 1:2. The winning tie bets pay 25:1. Also players are cautioned that most casinos take a 3% cut on real money player bets.
3-Card Baccarat Side Bets
There is the umpteenth number of three-card baccarat side bets which you can make and consider these bets before any round.
