Traditionally the grandest of all casino games, Baccarat (pronounced BA-CA-RAH) offers some of the best odds. There are two variations that Widus offers, Baccarat and Super6.
How to play:
- The game of Baccarat/Super6 is played using 8 decks of cards of 52 cards per deck placed in a dealing box called the shoebox.
- Two cards are dealt to both the Player and Banker wherein patrons play against each other.
- The object of the game is to get a total point as close as possible to 8 or 9 with the two initial cards or as close as possible to nine on three cards.
- The winning hand is the one which totals closest to nine. The hand that holds the higher count wins.
- A bet on the “Banker’s” hand wins if the total points of that hand are higher than the total points of the “Player’s” hand and loses if lower, and the “Player’s” hand wins or loses correspondingly.
- A bet on “Tie” wins if the total points of the “Banker” hand and of the “Player” hand are equal and loses if they are unequal.
- A bet on a “Player Pair” or “Banker Pair” wins if the initial two cards of the principal hand are a pair.
- A bet shall not be made or withdrawn after the dealer has commenced the beginning of the new deal or game.
