Bettors wager on one of three choices: the Banker’s hand, the Player’s hand or the tie, payable at 8-to-1 odds.

The game begins following the bet, when the dealer delivers two cards to each player from a shoe. The first bet is on the Player, while the second bet is on the Banker. Should the player desire, the dealer may deliver a third card to either the Player or the Banker hand according to the rules below.

In Baccarat, each card has a certain value. The cards two through nine equal their face value while face cards and tens equal 0. If the player receives two number cards – such as a two and a four – the numbers are added together. If the total of the two number cards equals more than 9 – for example, a seven and an eight equals a total of 15 – then the player counts the right digit as the point value of the hand (in this example, 5).


How to Play

Dragon Bonus is a side bet that pays when your hand is a natural winner or when it wins by a large margin. The highest payout, 30 to 1 is for a non-natural that wins by nine points.

Getting Started

Make the Dragon Bonus wager by betting in the marked area. You may bet either the Player or the Banker hand, but it must be the same side as your standard baccarat wager.

You have two ways to win:

The house charges a 5 percent commission on winning Banker bets. Other than a tie hand, which pays 8 to 1, bets are paid even money.
