Aces are valued as 1, tens and picture cards are valued as 0, and the remainder of the cards count are measured as face value. The chart below, lists certain rules in order to deal a third card to each hand, if necessary. No extra cards will be dealt, if there is a “Natural,” which is attained if the point value of the first two cards dealt for either hand is a 9 or 4.
The first digit of a two digit number is always discarded, so that no hand is ever bust (goes over nine). For example, if four and eight are dealt for a total of twelve, the count is two.
The player with the hand that has the highest number closest to 9 wins.
“Banker” bets that win are paid at the odds of 19/20 and “Player” bets that win are paid even money. The “Tie” bet that wins is paid eight to one, and happens when both hands have identical total results (chips go to the “Tie” portion of the table). Bets on “Player” and “Banker” are not paid nor taken when a “Tie” happens.
