THIS GAME IS BASICALLY BACCARAT, but where the House does not collect vigorish on winning Banker bets except on a score of six.
An Ace has a value of one. Face cards have a value of ten, while the rest of the cards (2 to 10) are counted according to their numerical value. A hand is evaluated as the sum modulo ten of its cards, i.e. only the last digit of its total is counted. Eight decks of cards are shuffled for this game.
There are two hands in this game, called the Player's hand and the Banker's hand. The game begins when four cards are dealt from a dealing shoe where the first and third cards shall be for the Player's hand while the second and fourth cards shall be for the Banker's hand.
The dealer announces the initial point and when either hand totals 8 or 9, this hand is called "Natural" and no further cards are dealt. "Natural" 9 wins over "Natural" 8.
If neither hand is a "Natural," one additional card may be dealt to each hand in accordance with the rules on hitting of third card. The hand that is closer to 9 without exceeding it wins.
In general, winning hands are paid even money. If the final count of the Banker is 6 while Player has less than 6, bets on the Banker and Super 6 win and the game is a Super 6. In this case, Banker bets are paid 0.5 to 1, while Super 6 bets are paid 12 to 1. The Super 6 bet is based on the proposition that a particular deal would result in a Super 6. Bets on the Super 6 lose when the deal results in a Draw, or any other outcome that is not a Super 6.
If the final count is equal for both hands, then the game is a Draw or a Tie. Bets on Draw are paid 8 to 1. The Draw bet is based on the proposition that a particular deal would result in a Draw.
Original bets on the Banker or the Player may be reduced or withdrawn after a Draw. However, additional bets shall only be accepted up to the Table limit. Cards are dealt for a new deal after a Draw.
