THE TOTALUP WAY TO PLAY CARD GAMES

If you enjoy playing Baccarat or Blackjack, you will love BACCJACK. There are 12 versions of the game, depending on the number of decks and options allowed. One of the preferred options is presented below.

Rules of Play

Each player places a wager at the start of the round. Players and dealer each gets two cards. The two cards of each player are left face up at the table and one of the dealerís two cards is revealed as the dealerís up card. The two cards are ranked in the same manner as in the game of Baccarat, with 9 being the highest and 0 being the lowest. 10 and face cards are worth 0, Aces count as 1 and all other cards 2 through 9 are worth their face value.

The objective of BACCJACK is to beat the dealer by having a total higher than the dealerís hand by at least two points. If the dealer face-up card is 9 or 8, the dealer must check his hole card for a natural. Players can place an insurance bet up to half their wager. Insurance pays 2 to 1. After insurance is offered, dealer checks to see if the hole card is a 0 value. If so, the dealer collects all wagers and pays insurance, if any.

Beginning with the player to the dealerís left, each player completes his or her hand by exercising one of the following options: stand, split, get a third card after doubling the original bet, get a fourth card after redoubling the original bet. The dealer, on the other hand, has only one option to follow as the dealerís two-card value is the final (house) value.

A player may stand if satisfied with the original two-card total, or may choose to double his bet and receive a third card to try to further improve the total. Players automatically lose their wagers if their hand final value is 0 or 1.

If the playerís first two cards are equal in value, the player may elect to split the pair, place an equal wager to the original bet, and play two independent hands each starting with one of the original two cards. Each hand gets a second card and is played as usual. Players can split up to three times.

Once all players have finished their hands, the dealer opens the hole card, stands, and states the dealerís total hand value. The dealerís hand is compared with each remaining playersí hands to resolve their bets. The dealer collects the losing cards and the wagers of losing hands, pays the winning wagers according to the payout schedule given below, and collects the winning cards. Once all bets are resolved, new wagers are placed and a new round begins.
