A French adaptation of the Italian game ‘Baccara’, the game of Baccarat is an elegant comparing card game comprised of seated players and back betters. A form of Barccarat, Midi Baccarat is played between the player and the banker, in which wagers can be made on the player, the banker or tie. Two cards are dealt to the player and two cards are dealt to the banker. Face cards, 10’s and cards totaling 10 count as 0. Ace cards count as 1. If the cards total a two-digit number, only the last digit counts. Winning player and banker bets are paid 1 to 1, while winning tie bets paid 8 to 1.
