Punto Banco

If you’ve played the game of baccarat, then you’ll find that Punto Banco is just a variant of this. It’s also sometimes called North American Baccarat. While game play is much the same, it has both some of the lowest house edges amongst casino table games, and some of the highest. However, in terms of the pay outs offered in this one, they run in the same vein as those for the standard baccarat offering from Netent. Game play is accompanied by the regular stylish and classy soundtrack music, while the wonderful integration of Netent’s range of graphics exist within as well. The idea behind playing Punto Banco is to try and guess on the outcome of the card hands that are dealt to both you and the banker. You’re basically betting on who you believe will receive the higher total.

The Visual Appeal

As soon as you load up the Punto Banco game, you’ll be presented with a visually appealing product, marked by Netent’s typical green felt table layout. The game’s logo is displayed in the centre of the screen and the cards will be dealt underneath this. To the right hand side of the screen is the deck of cards that will be dealt from, while on the left hand side you can see the minimum and maximum bet levels that you can play. Towards the bottom of the game screen you will find the three different wagering sections, marked by ‘Tie’ ‘Banco’ and ‘Punto’, and these represent the types of directions that you believe the cards will go in. Of course, you can also see that whenever you win a ‘Tie’ gamble, you’ll receive a pay out of 9 for 1.

Of course, there are a couple of customisation options available in the game as well, and this begins with the ability to change your wager with every round. This is done by utilising the chips displayed in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, and these range from between the minimum of €1 and the maximum amount of €50. There’s also the inclusion of a grey chip with a red ‘x’ marked on it, and you can use this to cancel off any already placed bet. Further customisation comes in the form of being able to turn on or off the sounds, as well as increase or decrease the speed of the game.

How to Play and the Winnings

You’ll need to decide upon a specific wager amount and which way you think the cards will be dealt, and place your bets accordingly. As noted, the chips you make use of need to be placed in the ‘Tie’, ‘Banco’ or ‘Punto’ section, and you can place chips on any and all of these sections, if you so choose to. Once done, you need to press on the ‘Deal’ button. This will dish out two cards to the ‘Punto’ side of the screen and two more to the ‘Banco’ side. The cards are then totalled up and compared with one another. Face cards and the 10 card have a zero point value, and if the total of lower cards increases past 10, then this value is knocked off the total. So, for example, if you are dealt a 7 and a 5, this totals 12, so 10 is knocked off and you have a value of 2. A third card is only dealt if the player has a total of between 0 and 5 and the value of the third card determines whether or not the banker receives a third.

You need only to hover over the sign stating the minimum and maximum values in order to view the pay outs available in this game. For any correct ‘Tie’ gamble, you will receive a pay out of 9 for 1, while any correct wager placed on either the ‘Banco’ or ‘Punto’ sections will see a pay out of 2 for 1 provided. A 5% commission is also deducted on all banco wins.
