What is Live Super6?
Super 6, a popular variant of Baccarat, is a simple game with three types of bets:
- Banker bet (aka "Banco")
- Player bet (aka "Punto")
- Tie bet (aka "Egalite")
Though the game is simple, Super 6 follows strict dealing rules.
Live Super 6 is played from an six-deck shoe. All face cards and 10's have no value. Cards less than 10 are counted at face value, Aces are worth 1. The suits of the cards don't play a role in the game. Only single digit values are valid. Any count that reaches a double digit drops the left digit. 15 is counted as 5 and 25 is also counted as 5. Each hand is consisted of no more than three cards, the Super6 rules do not allow a fourth card to be dealt under any circumstances.
To start, the players bet either on Banker, Player or Tie. Both Player and Banker pay even money (1:1) in Super6, except when Banker wins with 6, it pays 50% of the bet (1:2). A Tie bet pays 8:1. The goal in Super 6 is to reach a point total of 6 with your hand.
The live dealer gives two cards to both the Player hand and the Banker hand; first to the Player and then the Banker. A third card may be dealt to either or both the Player and the Bank based on the following three-card-rules. It is not necessary to learn these rules to play, they are compulsory decisions and therefore automatic.
If either the Player or the Bank have a total of 8 or 9 on the first two cards no further cards are drawn. The resulting hand is called a Natural and the hand is over. If the Player's total is less than or equal to 5 the Player's hand draws a third card.
If the Player does not draw a third card, then the bank's hand stands on 6 or more and takes a third card on a total of 5 or less. If the Player does take a third card then the Bank's third-card-rule below will determine if the bank takes a third card.
- If the Bank's total is 2 or less then bank draws a card, regardless of what the player’s third card is.
- If the Banks total is 3 then the bank draws a third card unless the Players third card was an 8.
- If the Banks total is 4 then the bank draws a third card unless the Players third card was a 0, 1, 8, or 9.
- If the Banks total is 5 then the bank draws a third card if the Players third card was 4, 5, 6, or 7.
- If the Banks total is 6 then the bank draws a third card if the Players third card was a 6 or 7.
- If the Banks total is 7 then the bank stands.
After the dealer has followed the third card dealing rule, the hand is closest to 9 without going over is announced the winner.

Dragon Bonus Side Bet:
The Dragon Bonus is a Super 6 side bet that pays when the hand is a Natural winner, or when the hand wins by at least 4 points.
Natural winners pay even-money on the Dragon Bonus bet, and in the event of a Natural that ties, the Dragon Bonus bet pushes. Non-Natural winners that win by at least 4 points pay even-money, and the larger the margin of victory, the larger the payout. For example, a non-Natural hand that wins by 9 points receives a payout of 30:1! To view the entire Dragon Payout table, click the "Dragon Payout" tab on the right side of the game interface.
