Super 6 is a popular variant of baccarat, with one major change. It removes the 5% commission you usually pay when you get a banker win. Because of this, Super 6 is also known as no commission baccarat. The game has a slightly altered payout structure, and a brand new side bet to go along with the no commission change.
You have two hands you can bet on; the player and the banker. Punters cannot interact with the hands in any way beyond making wagers. The dealer does all card drawing. The goal of super 6 is to get as close to nine as possible! If the total sum of cards goes over nine, the leftmost digit is dropped.
When the round begins, both sides receive two cards. The player hand goes first, followed by the banker. The game will compare the hands, and try to determine the winner. If neither side has a natural win (eight or nine), a third card may be drawn.
Again, the player goes first. If the player’s hand has any value between zero and five, a third card is drawn. Otherwise, the player hand stands. The same rule applies for the banker hand. After the third card is drawn for both sides, results are compared and a win is awarded.
Cards between two to nine count with their face value, meaning a three will be worth three points. However, some cards do not follow their face value. An Ace counts as one, while tens, jack, kings and queens are worth zero points.
Adding two numbers and their total sum going over ten also alters the number. If your two cards give you a fifteen, you remove the first digit to get the total value of the hand. In this case, that fifteen will turn into a five.
Like in standard baccarat, we have three bets: Player, Banker and Tie bets.
- Banker bets no longer have a 5% commission applied to them. That means a successful banker bet will pay even money. The only exception to this rule is if the banker bet wins with a six. Instead of receiving even money, you get a 0.5:1 payout.
- Player bets play the same as they did in standard baccarat. They are still harder to win compared to banker wins. On the plus side, they will always award an even money win, regardless of what number you win them with.
- Tie bets pay 8:1 if the player and banker hands are equal value when the round ends. We do not recommend playing tie bets due to their high house edge.
A new wager exclusive to this game is the Super 6 side-bet. You have to pay extra to activate it, but it is not a mandatory bet. With Super 6, you receive a 12:1 payout if the banker wins with a six total. Like the tie bet, the high house edge makes it difficult to recommend playing the side bet.
