EZ Baccarat San Diego

San Diego’s best Baccarat is here! By some accounts, Baccarat dates back all the way to the 15th century. Many people know it as the preferred game of none other than 007 himself, super spy James Bond. With EZ Baccarat, gone are the days of commissions on Banker wager, and players can now play to win big with the new Dragon 7 optional bet.

How to Play Baccarat:

  • Initially, two cards are dealt to the Player hand and the Banker hand.
  • When the Player or the Banker is dealt a total of 8 or 9 in the first two cards, game ends with the higher hand winning.
  • When both Player and Banker are dealt 7 or less, an additional drawing takes place.
  • When your Banker, Player or Tie bet qualifies, YOU WIN!
  • Banker bet – You’re betting that the Banker hand will be higher than the Player hand.
  • Player bet – You’re betting that the Player hand will be higher than the Banker hand.
  • Tie bet – You’re betting that Player and the Banker hand will be the same value.
  • Win Big! – Bet the Dragon7™ and win, get paid 40 to 1 on your bet!


Tie: When the Player’s hand and the Banker’s hand are equal at the end of the game.

Dragon7™: Optional side bet that you win when the Banker receives a winning three-card total of seven.

Panda 8™: Optional side bet you win when the Player hand is a three-card total of eight.

Card Values / Calculation:

2 to 9: Face value
10, J, Q, K: Zero
Ace: One

The rightmost digit of the sum of the cards is the hand’s total value.

Example: “7” + “8” = 5, since 7+8=15 and 5 is the rightmost digit of the sum.
