The game is called Squeeze Midi-Baccarat because the Players actually get a chance to squeeze, turn and bend the cards (if they desire) before revealing the result to all the Players. This adds to the excitement of the game. The object of the game is to predict which hand will have a point value closest to nine (9). In Squeeze Midi-Baccarat, all cards are dealt by one Dealer and up to 9 Players can be seated at one time. There are three possible outcomes to wager on: the Player hand, the Banker hand, or the Tie. The Player hand and the Banker hand are each dealt two initial cards. Based on the individual point totals of the Player hand and Banker hand, a third card may be dealt. The hand with a point value closest to nine (9) wins. To determine point value, cards in the hand are added together and the last digit is used to declare the winner (e.g. 8+8=16, total of the hand = 6).
