While at first the rules may seem a bit confusing, the best thing to remember is that there really is no need to know them exactly. As a game of chance, all you really have to do is decide which hand you think will win, and bet accordingly.
However, knowing the basic rules will certainly help you follow what is going on, making the game a lot more enjoyable. You have the choice of betting on either the Bank, the Player or for a Tie. (Betting "tie" is not usually recommended, as the house advantage is too high).
Except for the Tie bet, Baccarat has a very low house advantage - 1.36 % if you bet on Player and 1.17% for bets on Banker. 1. Two hands are dealt, one for the Player and one for the Banker - it is time to bet on one or the other. 2. If the hand you bet on wins, you receive a 1 to 1 (even money) payoff.
You can also bet that the hands will tie, but as mentioned above, it is not recommended. You receive an 8 to 1 payoff, but ties occur less than once out of every ten hands, making the tie bet a rare (but rewarding) choice.
