The winner of a single game is determined by the values held in the two player ’s hand. The winner is the one who is closest to the value of 9. If a player has the value of 9 then either he can win or it may be a tie. The value of a hand is determined by the means of adding the hand modulo. This signifies that the card value is added and then divided by 10. Like 5 + 6 = 11. 11 / 10 = 1 which can also mean that the tens digit is removed and using the remainder. So the highest value that can be derived is 9 and lowest is zero and is termed as baccarat during the game. Ironically the slot machine shares its name to the worse value possible.
