# Baccarat Dragon Bonus

## OBJECTIVE

Predict whether the dealer will win, player will win or they will tie.

## GAME RULES

In the Baccarat game two hands are dealt; one for the banker and another for the player. The player bets which will win, or if they will tie. The winning hand has the closest value to nine. The game is played with eight decks of cards that are shuffled by the dealer when the shoe is close to finishing. The last 11 cards are cut from the shoe and the three first cards of the shoe are burnt.

## CARD VALUES:

 Ace= 1 Face cards and tens= 0 All other cards= Value stated on the card

If the cards in a hand total more than ten points, simply subtract ten to obtain the baccarat point value of the hand. (e.g. 8+8=16, but counts as 6. Jack+7=17, but counts as 7.)

A two-card total of nine is the best hand and is called a "Natural". The second-best hand is a "Natural" eight. If both the player and banker are dealt identical hands, the game ends in a tie and bets on both the banker and player are returned.

The dealer will deal two cards for the player’s hand and two for the banker’s hand. If the value of either hand is eight or nine (a natural) the hand is complete and no further cards are dealt. Otherwise, the player gets dealt another card for a hand sum up to, and including, five. If the player did not draw a third card, then the banker is dealt a third card using the same rules mentioned above.

If the player did draw a third card, then the banker follows these rules:

• If the player’s third card is a 2 or 3, the banker will draw if he has a 0-4 and stays with a 5-7.
• If the player’s third card is a 4 or 5, the banker will draw if he has a 0-5 and stays with a 6-7.
• If the player’s third card is a 6 or 7, the banker will draw if he has a 0-6 and stays with a 7.
• If the player’s third card is an 8, then the banker will draw if he has a 0-2 and stays with a 3-7.
• If the player’s third card is a 9,10, face card or Ace, the banker will draw if he has a 0-3 and stays with a 4-7.

At the end of the game winnings are paid as follows:

 Player 1:1 + bet amount Banker 0.95:1 + bet amount Tie 8:1 + bet amount

In the event of a tie, bets on Banker and Player are refunded.

## SIDE BETS

Dragon Bonus wagers pay as follows:

• Natural Win pays 1 to 1
• Natural Tie is a Push
• Non-Natural Win by 9 points pays 30 to 1
• Non-Natural Win by 8 points pays 10 to 1
• Non-Natural Win by 6-7 points pays 4 to 1
• Non-Natural Win by 4-5 points pays 2 to 1

All other outcomes result in a loss of the Dragon Bonus bet

## BETTING INSTRUCTIONS

To place a bet, select a chip value from the slider and then click directly where it says Player, Banker or Tie in the center of the table. Once the timer has finished the countdown, the dealer will begin dealing the cards. If there is a game in progress you will need to wait until it has completed before placing a bet.

## ERROR HANDLING

If there is any error in the game procedure, the game round will be temporarily paused and the shift manager will be notified. Players will be notified by an on-screen pop-up message, to notify the player the issue is under investigation. If the manager can immediately resolve the error, the game round will continue as normal. If immediate resolution is not possible, the game round will be cancelled and initial bets will be refunded to all players who participated in the game round.

Should a system disconnection occur after a bet was placed on the Baccarat table and before the timer has completed, the bet will not be deducted from the balance. If a disconnection occurs after the bet was finalized and already deducted from the balance, yet before the game results are known, the bet will be processed as usual and the balance will update according to the game results.

Malfunction voids all pays and play.
