## Introduction

If first saw Super Baccarat in Las Vegas in April, 2021. It is based on the commission-free variant of baccarat where a Banker win with a total of six pays 1 to 2. In addition to the three usual bets, it adds 28 side bets on the total points of the winning or tie hand.

## Rules

Super Baccarat follows conventional baccarat drawing rules. Banker wins with a total of six pay 1 to 2, while all other Banker wins pay 1 to 1. In addition, the game offers side bets on all possible winning totals for both sides as well all possible ties. The following table shows what all side bets pay. Wins are on a "to one" basis.
