The popularity of the game can be owed to the fact that it’s a game completely residing on chance and need a minimum strategy. Although the game has been seen in the 15th century nonetheless with the advent of online casinos it had become more prevalent. If you are meaning to play the game for a long here is an introductory guide to get you started.
Understanding the game
The game is played with a 6-card deck where from which three cards are dealt to the Player and the Banker’s hand. The player will have to place a bet on either of the hand wining. The third-hand tie is mostly avoided due to lower probability but you can place it on it. On the third hand, you place the bet on both of the players winning the game i.e., a tie.
The rules for winning are as follows:
You choose from either of the two hands (choosing the third hand is also an option) to bet on.
Once you have chosen the hand not more than two cards are dealt to each hand.
If either of the hand had a score of nine or eight, they would win the game
If neither had a score of 9 or 8 third card is dealt.
The person having a score of 9 or 8 wins the game.
The score provided for each of the cards is given following the value assigned to each card which is as follows:
The ace has a score of 1 assigned to it.
The face card and the 10 had a score of 0 assigned to them.
The cards valued from 2 to 9 belonging to any suit are scored at their face value.
How its played?
The games were started by a croupier (in the case of online casinos digitally) handing cards to each hand. Once they are dealt, they are turned and the score is calculated as follows:
From the two cards, the score is calculated.
If the score is a two-digit number of more than ten then the first number of the two-digit number is dropped and the second number is accepted as the score.
If you had a score near 8 or 9 you will win the game.
If none of them, have it then the third Hand is dealt.
The rules of handling the third hand are a little complicated as follows:
If the third card player is zero then the banker draws.
If the third card of the player has 2 or 3 then the banker will not draw if he had a score ranging from 3-7and will draw if he had a score ranging from 0-2.
If the third card of the player has 4 or 5 then the banker will not draw if he had a score ranging from 0-5 and will draw if he had a score ranging from 4-5.
If the third card of the player has 6 or 7 then the banker will not draw if he had a score of 7 and will draw if he had a score ranging from 0-6.
If the third card of the player has 8 then the banker will not draw if he had a score ranging from 3-7 and will draw if he had a score ranging from 0-2.
Then from the three hands, the score is calculated and the score should be near or equal to 9. If both win then it’s a loss.
