How to play Speed Baccarat
Speed Baccarat follows the rules of traditional baccarat - albeit in a much faster way! To win a game of baccarat, the player or banker position needs to have a hand as close to 9 as possible.
As with traditional baccarat, all cards retain their face values - but there are no double-digit values. Instead, a hand that contains cards that make up double digits will have the first digit removed.
E.g, a hand with a 6 and 9, will be valued as 5. This is because 6 + 9 = 15 - the first digit is removed in baccarat resulting in the hand value of 5.
The game starts with the dealer drawing two cards to the player and banker positions.
If the player or banker position draw an 8 or 9 - then this is called a natural hand and no other cards will be dealt.
If the player and banker have hands with values between 0-7 - then the 3rd card rule will apply. The player and banker will now receive new cards - with the winner being decided based on the highest result.

Speed Baccarat Strategy
The universal rule in baccarat is to always back the banker position rather than the player.
Due to the 3rd card rule, the banker gets an advantage and another chance to win. However, winnings on the banker are charged with a commission. Technically you do win more by betting on the player.
Another steadfast rule in baccarat is to ignore the "Tie" bet. The tie offers better payouts than both options - but also has a much smaller chance of appearing during a game round.

What is the maximum payout in Speed Baccarat?
The maximum payout comes from the Perfect Pairs side bet. If the player and banker positions have the same value cards and suits - the bet pays 250:1.
What is the best Speed Baccarat strategy?
Always bet on the banker position as you have the best chance of winning - the tie side bet should also be ignored as it offers the lowest chance.
