No Commission Baccarat

The object of No Commission Baccarat is to predict if the Player or the Banker hand will get a point value closest to 9. All ten-value cards count as zero and Aces count as one. The hand with the highest point value wins.

Unlike most Baccarat games, in this version there is no commission taken on winning Banker bets. The game pays out 1:1 unless the Banker bet win is on an 8 result, in which case it pays out 1:2 (E.g., for a bet of 2.00 you would win 1.00).

The game is played using 8 decks of cards, re-shuffled after each round.

A scorecard in the top left corner shows recent past outcomes.

Details on table limits and payouts can be viewed by mousing over the table card.

Betting

1. Click on the chip stack located in the bottom right corner of the screen to select the desired bet amount.
For convenience, the value of the last chip clicked on the chip stack is held in memory (indicated with an arrow) and can be repeated without returning to the chip stack.

Higher credit denominations: 1K=1000, 1M=1 000 000, 1B=1 000 000 000.

2. Click the Player, Banker, or Tie section of the table to place your initial bet (Tie can be combined with either Banker or Player, but Player and Banker bets cannot be combined). To remove or change a bet, hold the shift key and left click the chip(s) in the Bet circle, or click Undo to remove bets one at a time.
3. Click on the Deal button to have the cards dealt. On subsequent hands, you can use the Same Bet button to repeat your last bet. This will also auto-deal the cards.

Playing

The Player's hand will be dealt two cards and the Banker's hand will be dealt two cards. Third cards are dealt according to the rules detailed below.

Hand Values:

The highest total any Baccarat hand can have is nine. A two-card total of nine is called a "natural" and cannot lose. An eight is the second-best hand and is also called a "natural". If both the Player and Banker are dealt hands of equal value, it's a push (tie) and neither the Banker nor the Player hand wins.

Card Values:

Ace = one point

Face cards and tens = zero

All other cards carry the point value stated on the card. If the cards in a hand total more than ten points, simply subtract ten; the remainder is the Baccarat point value of the hand. Examples: 7+Jack=7, Ace+8=9, and 7+8=15, which becomes 5 in Baccarat. Below, the Player has 7 (7 + 0) and the Banker has 0 (3 + 0 + 7=10 - 10).

Third Card Rules

The following Baccarat rule chart governs when the Player and/or the Banker will automatically draw a third card in the Baccarat game: If the point value of the first two cards is 8 or 9, this is called a Natural. If anyone is dealt a Natural the game ends and no third card is dealt to anyone.
