Baccarat Mini is a typical baccarat game except for the use of a slightly smaller shoe of only 6 cards instead of 8. You can place bets ranging from 0.2 – 20, depending on which bet you are placing. This game is very simple to understand and all you’ll need to do is place your bet in the beginning, click ‘deal’, and let the gameplay out without lifting a finger.
Baccarat is a real betting game requiring no thought after this initial phase. The bet options are located in the bottom left-hand corner for both desktop and mobile versions of the game. Click on the coins icon to open a menu with the following options: 0.2, 1, 2, 5, and 10. You can use these coins to make three possible bets:
Player win – you can bet on the player to win by selecting a coin and clicking on the betting space on the left-hand side under the ‘Player’ heading (desktop) or at the bottom (mobile). The minimum and maximum amount you can bet there are 0.2 and 10 respectively.
Banker win – you can bet on the banker to win by selecting a coin and clicking on the betting space on the right-hand side under the ‘Banker’ heading (desktop) or in the middle (mobile). You can also bet between 0.2 and 10 for this option.
Tie – This is the bet that will earn you the most money, but is also the hardest to win off. You can bet a minimum of 0.2 and a maximum of 20 by selecting the coins and clicking on the betting space in the middle of the screen above ‘Tie’ (desktop) or at the top (mobile).
You are not limited to which bets you can place in a game. For example, if you choose to bet on all three options, two options, or just one option – it is up to you. Once you are satisfied with your bet you can click on the ‘Deal’ button in the bottom right-hand corner.
Winning in Baccarat Mini is based on what bet you selected. This game is all about choosing what you think the outcome will be. For example, if you placed a bet on the player’s hand winning, then you will only win if this outcome occurs. The same can be said for the banker winning or a tie occurring.
To determine whether the player won, banker won, or there was a tie, you need to look at the value of the hands. The hand with the highest value (maximum 9) wins. To determine the value of the hand you need to look at the cards as follows:
●The ace has a value of 1
●Cards 2 – 9 are the same value as their number (for example, a 6 has a value of 6).
●10s, Jacks, Queens, and Kings have no value
An important thing to note is if the value of the two cards dealt at the start exceeds 9, then the value of the hand is the 2nd digit of the amount. For example, a 6 and a 7 equal 13, but this exceeds 9 and therefore the value of the hand is 3.
The payouts are as follows:
●Winnings bets on the player’s hand are paid 1:1
●Winning bets on the banker’s hand are paid 0.95:1
●Winning bets on a tie are paid 8:1
Baccarat Mini is one of the easiest games to play because after you place your bet there is nothing else you need to do. The game will automatically play out based on the rules of the game. Once you click ‘deal’ the game begins with the player and dealer being dealt their 2 cards. After the draw rules are played out, the final value of the hands are observed and all winning bets are paid out.
