Baccarat Playing Table

The American Baccarat table has a middle area for the croupier and two identical ends. The typical layout of the baccarat table is shown on the image.

Areas on the Baccarat Table:

  1. Caller ("Croupier")
  2. Dealer
  3. Dealer
  4. Drop Box
  5. Discard Trays
  6. Tips box

Only 14 players occupy the seats which correspond to the numbers on the layout. At the American Baccarat table the No. 13 seat is eliminated, because of the superstition that surrounds the number.

The 14th player will be seated at No. 15. Wagers are placing in a section in front of the players.

Corresponding to the possible choices at the beginning of each game the player has three betting areas associated with his position at the table: "Banker", "Player"
or "Tie".

American Baccarat table are served by three dealers. The “Caller” or

”Croupier” directs the play of the game and makes calls on the

hands. He is standing between players 1 and 15.

In front of him are two other dealers work on the position 2 and 3.

Number two serves players one through seven, the other serves
eight through fourteen. The dealers takes bets away on losses and pay bets when a player wins. There are numbered boxes
in the croupier area, which are used to track how much commission each player owes the house.
