Skip the bouncers and enjoy all the thrill of Punto Banco without the exclusive price tag.
To begin playing Punto Banco, you only need to click on one of the chips you can see on the bottom-right part of the screen. Place your chip on either the Punto, Banco, or Tie field, which you will be able to see on the plush green tabletop. Don't forget you can also place multiple chips on any of these fields, so make sure you are happy with your bet amount before you continue. If you decide you want to erase your wagered chips, you can click on the grey chip with the red X. Press the Deal button to start the game when you're happy with your wagers.
As the game starts, the dealer flips over two cards for the dealer- known as Punto- and two cards from the banker- known as Banco. Similar to the standard rules of Baccarate, third cards may also be drawn for both the player and the banker hands. When the hands have been drawn, whichever hand is closer to 9 wins. To clear the table and make the same wagers again, click on the Rebet button, or to simply clear the table, you can click on the New Bet button.
Punto Banco is a timeless game bound to bring a little bit of elegance to your gaming experience. When you place your bets on either Punto or Banco you'll receive a 1-1 payout, but if you happen to bet on Tie and win, the payout skyrockets to an incredible 8-1, so players to bet big are really rewarded by this game.
