There are numerous bets, and side bets at the First Person live baccarat tables to choose from. Each bet comes with its own rules, payouts, and guidelines for playing.
How Are Point Totals Scored?
In this live game, how total points are scored in First Person is different from the traditional live baccarat, even though the two games are pretty similar. This could result in some confusion if it is not addressed. Now, in the First Person variant, Aces are always low in this game since they only count for one point. Similarly, cards two through nine are worth their face value, making them relatively easy to grasp. However, Kings, Queens, Jacks, and 10s differ.
In this game, hand scores are determined by the "ones" digit of the total number of cards in that particular hand. As a result, totals of 29 and 17 are actually scores of nine and seven, respectively. Consequently, all Kings, Queens, Jacks, and 10s can be scored as either zero or ten points. The player's choice makes no difference since none of them has any bearing on the score.
Single-Hand Gameplay Procedure
The game begins with a player placing wagers and side bets. Two cards are then dealt to the hands (Player and Banker). Depending on the rules of the house, a third card may be added to either of the hands. After the point totals of the two hands are determined, the bets will be resolved, and a new hand is dealt. The hand that comes closest to getting an eight or nine without going over wins. The first digit is removed if the cards in the player's hand push them above 10.
