So, in the USA people play Black Jack, but in Europe people play Baccara. American "Blackjack" is equal to the European "Baccara". There is also a reductive variant of Baccara - "Shmen-de-Fer". Now we want to explain you European blackjack rules.
There are used eight packs of cards in Baccara. In the course of a game a player has to collect the quantity of spots, which is maximally close to 9. It is a very interesting fact - that the King, the Queen, the Jack, Tens and any card combinations with a sum total of spots - 10 - have no value. Rest of cards has a significance that is equal to their face-value: the Ace has 1 spot, the Two - 2 spots and so on. The card combination of two Eights on one hand has a value of six spots.
The next step in the Baccara game is the following: packs are thoroughly mixed and cut with a plastic card. Then they are put into the special box. A role of a dealer accomplishes one of players. He distributes for one card to all players and to himself. The assumption of a croupier is to declare the quantity of collected slots. If a sum of slots of the players and of the banker is eight or nine, the banker declares "natural" (additional cards are not dispensed during this procedure). If a player and a banker have no eight or nine on their hands, then a supplementary card is given: the right side is up. These are the most important European blackjack rules.
But there is also Mini-Baccara, which is spread in Europe, too. The rules of Mini-Baccara are the same with Baccara rules. But in Mini variant only a dealer can distribute the cards. This game can play no more then seven players simultaneously.
There are three kinds of rates in Baccara and Mini-Baccara. They are:
1. on the banker's hand
2. on the player's hand
3. on the rate "tie" (when a player and a dealer have the same rates)
After a dealer's words: "Rates are made!" takes place a dispensation of cards on players rates and dealer's rate. Rates are to be made before a dealer says: "Rates are made!" Then the game goes on.
