Top NetEnt Online Baccarat Variants

NetEnt’s Baccarat Pro

Baccarat Professional Series offers a 98.94 payout percentage and plays with 8 decks of cards with 52 cards in each deck. In Baccarat the general rule of thumb is to get to nine points or as close to it. And you can bet on one of three options to win, namely a Tie, the player or the banker. The card scores are simple, 2 to 9 are face value, 10, King, Queen and Jacks are worth 10 points and an Ace is worth 1 point. If you get a card valued at 10 and another card from 2-9 this means you are above 9 and 10 will be subtracted. For example you get a King and a 6, its 10 + 6 = 16, minus 10, and therefore it leaves you with 6.
