The attraction of this game is the high betting stakes and the fact that the house advantage against the players is one of the lowest of all casino games. The game is based on a simple battle between two parties, the "Player" (Punto) and the "Banker" (Banco).
If the total score of 8 or 9 has not been reached, further cards are drawn according to the drawing rules. At the end of the game, the croupier announces the total score of both the "Punto" and the "Banco" players.
If "Banco" has a higher value than "Punto", "Banco" wins. If "Punto" has a higher value than "Banco", "Punto" wins. If both sides have the same point value, the score is a draw and the bets on "Tie" win. The stakes on "Punto" and "Banco" remain unchanged, i.e. they can be deducted or changed. The croupier is in charge of the game, collecting and paying out the stakes.
