The winning hand is the one with a value closest to nine.
The value of a hand is calculated by adding up the total of the cards. The card values are:
Card Face Value
(Any Suit) 
Card Point Value 
King 
0 
Queen 
0 
Jack 
0 
10

9 
9

Ace

If the total of a hand exceeds nine, the value of the hand is the "unit" portion of the total. For more information, see the examples below.
If the hand you bet on wins, you are paid out according to the Payout Schedule.
Examples:
 A hand consists of an Eight of Clubs and a Seven of Diamonds. The point values are 8 and 7, so the total of the hand is 8 + 7 = 15. As the "tens" portion of the total is ignored, the value of the hand is five.
 A hand consists of a Nine of Spades, a Two of Hearts and a Nine of Diamonds. The point values are 9, 2 and 9, so the total of the hand is 9 + 2 + 9 = 20. As the "tens" portion of the total is ignored, the value of the hand is zero.
