How To Play Mini Baccarat
While mini Baccarat may seem like a simple game, the drawing rules can be complicated. Here are the drawing rules:
The Player draws with a score of 5 or less and stands with a hand of 6 or more.
The Banker’s drawing rules are more complicated and are as follows:
The Banker always hits with a score of 2 or less and if the Player stands, the Banker draws with a score of 5 or less.
If the Player hits:
- If the Banker has a score of 3, he draws if the Player’s third card is anything other than an 8.
- If the Banker has a score of 4, he draws if the Player’s third card is a 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7.
- If the Banker has a score of 5, he draws if the Player’s third card is a 4, 5, 6, or 7.
- If the Banker has a score of 6, he draws if the Player’s third card is a 6 or a 7.
- The Banker always stands with a score of 7 regardless of the Player’s third card.
