As in traditional Baccarat, Mini-Baccarat involves just a few decisions: how much you want to bet and whether to bet on the Bank, the Player, Tie, or the Pairs Wager. In betting on the bank, the casino will collect 5% vigorish or commission charge on money won. The commission is paid at the end of play or at the conclusion of each shoe.
Players may place a Pairs Wager by placing a wager on one or both of two designated betting areas on the table layout. These betting areas are identified as "Player Pair" and "Banker Pair" and are located on either side of the betting area for the "Tie Hand." A winning Pairs Wager pays 11 to 1. A winning tie bet pays 8 to 1.
At Hard Rock Hollywood, we also offer Commissionless Baccarat. The Dealer will charge every Player at the table a vigorish equal to 50 percent of the Player’s wager on the “Banker Hand” if the “Banker’s Hand” wins with a point-count of 6. The vigorish will be taken out of the wining “Banker’s” wager during the “pay and take” phase of the game. All other winning “Banker’s Hands” will not be charged a vigorish.
Super 6 is a side-bet on the Banker to win with a point- count total of 6, with any other outcome being a loss. All wagers on the “Super 6” will be paid 12 to 1.
