# Dragon Bonus Royal Baccarat Betting Rules

The objective of the game is to bet on whichever of two hands, the Player's hand or the Banker's hand, that will have a point value closest to 9.

Card Values

• All cards except for Tens, Picture Cards, (Jacks, Queens and Kings) and Aces, are worth their face value
• All Tens and "Picture Cards" are counted as 0
• Aces are counted as 1

There are no values greater than 9 in Baccarat. If the total value of the hand is over 10 points, subtract 10, and the remainder shall be the final point value. Below are a few examples:

4 + 2 + 6 = 2

5 + 6 + 8 = 9

7 + 3 = 0

10 + 10 + 10 = 0

Drawing Rules

There are no optional drawing rules in this game. Whether cards are dealt or not is determined according to the following standard casino rules.

1. The decision to draw a third card for the Player's hand is made automatically as below:

Total of First Two Cards Draw or Stand
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Draw a third card unless Banker has a Natural
