Punto Banco

How to Play

Punto Banco is a card game similar to Baccarat.

How to Play

  1. The aim of the game is to bet on the hand you believe will receive the higher total.
  2. You may also bet both hands have the same total, or tie.
  3. Once all bets are placed two hands (each of two cards) are dealt - one to the Punto (Player) and one to the Banco (Banker).
  4. Additional cards may be drawn by the Dealer, according to the table of play.
  5. After all the cards have been dealt the Dealer pays the winning bets.
Hand totals

The highest hand total in Punto Banco is 9 and the lowest is zero. Cards from Ace to 9 have their face value, Tens, Jacks, Queens and Kings count as zero. When determining the value of a hand only the right hand digit is used.

For example:
2 + 3 + 6 = 11 the hand value is 1
6 + 4 = 10 the hand value is 0
King + 7 = 7 the hand value is 7


Wait for the current round of play to end and ask the croupier to buy-in for your desired amount (Different tables have different minimum bets). Money can’t be handed directly to the croupier, so place it on the table and the croupier will exchange for chips.

UR Way Egalite Sidebet

Where the standard Egalite side wager pays 9 to 1 for any tied hand regardless of the score, the new ‘UR Way Egalite’ side wager allows Players to bet on one of the ten possible tied score outcomes (e.g. tied on a score of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc up to 9). Different tied scores then pay different odds, according to the possibilities of their occurring. These odds range from 45 to 1 for a tied score of six or seven, up to 225 to 1 for a tied score of two.
