All you need to know is the value of each card. The number cards from 2 to 9 have the same value, while the aces are one point along with the face cards. The number ten cards all have a value of zero. Your objective, in order to win Bitcoins, is to score the number closest to nine, or a number that is higher than the dealers.

Read other player’s reviews in order to make sure you play Bitcoin Baccarat on a secure and reputable website.
