Cards and their combinations in online Baccarat for real money
The game uses six to eight decks of cards. Each deck has 52 sheets from Two to Ace. Cards from two to nine are considered by their face value, a dozen and pictures (Jack, Queen, King) are considered to be 0 points, Ace - one point. 10 points equal to 0, so if you got more than ten points only second digit will count as points. For example, seven and eight give 5 points (7 + 8 = 15, 15-10 = 5), or four and six give 0 points (4 + 6 = 10, 10-10 = 0).
