Scoring System – How it Works
The name Baccarat actually means Zero in French, and this gives you an idea of the scoring system used in the game. All face cards are worth zero points when you play Live Baccarat, and all ten cards are worth zero also. Your overall aim is to try and make the best possible hand that you can - but you as you bet on the outcome of the game, you can also bet against yourself and wager that the dealer will win. If you choose to bet on the dealer, you will still play a hand – but if your hand loses, you will win a payout, as your prediction was correct! The highest hand value in Live Baccarat is nine, and the suits are all considered equal so these will not affect your game. You score your hand by adding together your card values – e.g. If your hand is Jack/7, then your hand is worth 7 points. If your hand is 9/2, then your hand is worth 11 points; but as 9 is the highest point value you can have, you must drop the ten to make a hand total of 1. Two face cards will count as a score of zero.
