How to play Punto Banco Pro Series
The table game starts by both the dealer and the player being dealt two cards each face up. A third card is then dealt to each dependent on the third card rules. The third card rules in Punto Banco Pro Series is as follows:
- if both punto or banco draw 8 or 9 then they will both stand. This is the predominant rule and will override all the following rules.
- If neither have 8 or 9, but the player (punto) has 6 or 7 then the player stands. If punto has 0 to 5 then the third card is dealt.
- If punto stands then the dealer will draw their third card if dealer’s hand is between 0 and 5.
- If the player draws a third card, then the respective hands will decide on the dealer getting a third card or not.
The winning hand will be that, that is closest to a value of 9. If both Punto and Banco draw the same value hands in this online casino game then the outcome is a tie. If you have bet on tie then you will win this hand. The values of each card are slightly different from usual, ace counts a 1 but kings, queens, jacks and tens will all count as zero. The rest of the cards are same as the numeric value on them. When a hand goes up to ten or more then then 10 will be taken off, for example if you have 12 then it will become 2.
