The game works for both experienced baccarat players and also newcomers to the game because of the innate simplicity that this baccarat variant brings to the table.

Classic Baccarat plays out like the standard baccarat game. There are 2 hands in the game - one for the banker and another for the player. You can bet for either the player or the banker. There is also a third option that you can bet on, which is a tie. The objective is to make a hand that is closest or equal to 9. If the hand value is higher than 9 only the value of the right hand digit is counted; so a 12 would effectively be counted as 2. All 10 value cards - 10, J, Q, K, and A - are attributed a value of 0, while the Ace is valued at 1.
To play Classic Baccarat you have to first place your wager. You do this by clicking the '+' or '-' option at the bottom left of the game screen. Once you have placed your wager you choose which side you want to bet on - Player, Banker or Tie. Both these entities are dealt 2 cards each. If required additional cards will be dealt to bring the hand closer to 9. Whoever has a hand value of 9 or close to it wins.
