The object is to bet on the Player or Banker to get a higher point. This is determined by adding up the cards and taking the last digit to get the point. The point can be 0 through 9. If the two cards add up to 19, the point is 9.
The first thing you must to is Choose Your Bet by clicking on the Player, Banker or Tie betting area. Then click a chip amount to place that bet. You can bet on either Banker OR Player; do not bet on both at the same time as either one or the other will win.
You can choose to bet on both Tie and Banker or Tie and Player; however, you will not lose your Banker or Player bet if the hand Ties. Instead, you will Push on that bet and win 9 to 1 if you bet on the Tie.

3) If the Player stands and the Banker has 5 or less, the Banker must draw a 3rd card.

d. Player has 4 or 5 – the Banker must draw unless the point is 6 or 7
e. Player has 6 or 7 – the Banker must draw unless the point is 7
