Lucky 9 is a house-banked game scored like Baccarat and dealt like Blackjack using 1-8 standard 52-card decks. The object of the game is to beat the dealer with a higher valued hand as close to 9 as possible. Tens and face cards are worth 0 points, aces are worth 1 point, and 2-9 are scored at face value. Hands are valued as the last digit of their sum. Lucky 9 also includes optional bonus and progressive wagers.
Bonus 9: A player wagers that their hand (formed from the player’s first two cards and the dealer’s up card) achieves a point total of 9 and pays according to the posted paytable.
Tie: A player wagers that their hand will have the same point total as the dealer’s hand, regardless of the number of cards. The Tie wager pays 7 to 1.
