# Jackpot Baccarat

## Introduction

I first noticed Jackpot Baccarat at Harrah's Las Vegas on February 16, 2016. It is a simple, poker-based side bet based on the first four cards dealt in a game of baccarat.

## Rules

The Jackpot Baccarat side bet pays based on the poker value of the initial two cards dealt to both the Player and Banker hands. The pay table is shown below.

### Pay Table

Event Pays
Mini royal 250 to 1
Four of a kind 75 to 1
Straight flush 50 to 1
Three of a kind 15 to 1
Flush 10 to 1
Straight 5 to 1
Two pair 4 to 1
Pair of aces 2 to 1
Pair 10's to K's Push
