** True Baccarat should not be confused with Mini or Midi Baccarat that is played in the Main Casino.

There is a separate Baccarat pit off the main floor. Each player is playing against all the other players and no one is playing against the house – the house has no hand in this game. Cards are drawn by each player in rotation and the dealer never touches the cards. Since the casino has no stake in the game, they receive a 5% cut of all monies played and each player is expected to tip the dealer generously.

There is the American Roulette which includes an extra slot for the double-zero (00) and the European game without the double-zero. The American wheel is more house-friendly since if you bet Red/Black in any way, all players lose if the ball lands in the green 00 slot.
