The object of the game is to assemble two hands of two or three cards with a point value as close to nine as possible. Aces count as one, picture cards count as zero, and all other cards have their face value. The dealer deals two hands of two cards each, two cards to the right and two cards to the left one by one in rotation. The hand to the left of the dealer is a community hand that belongs to those that placed a bet on the dealer line. The dealer’s first card is dealt face up and the second card is face down. The hand to the right of the dealer is a community hand that belongs to those that placed a bet on the player line. The player’s hand is dealt face up. Players have the option to bet on the player’s hand, the player/dealer’s hand, or make an early or late tie bet.
EZ Baccarat is played the same way as traditional baccarat except there is no longer a 5% commission on winning bank wagers. Instead, a winning bank hand having a three card total of seven (Dragon 7) is a push. An additional wager has been added called the "Dragon 7". This bet pays 40-1 in the event that the bet is made when the bank receives a winning three card total of seven.
