§ 631a.12. Announcement of result of round; payment and collection of wagers.
(a) After each hand has received all the cards to which it is entitled under § § 631a.9, 631a.10 and 631a.11 (relating to hands of player and banker; procedure for dealing initial two cards to each hand; procedure for dealing a third card; and rules for determining whether a third card shall be dealt), the dealer calling the game shall announce the final Point Count of each hand indicating which hand has won the round. If the two hands have equal Point Counts, the dealer shall announce tie hand. If the table is designated for play as an EZ Baccarat table and the Point Counts of the Bankers Hand and the Players Hand result in a Dragon 7 or a Panda 8, the dealer shall announce Dragon 7 or Panda 8.
(b) After the result of the round is announced, the dealer or dealers responsible for the wagers on the table shall first collect each losing wager. After the losing wagers are collected, the dealer or dealers responsible for the wagers on the table shall, starting at the highest numbered player position at which a winning wager is located, pay that players winning wager and immediately thereafter mark or collect the vigorish owed by that player unless the table is designated for play as an EZ Baccarat table in which vigorish is not collected. The dealer shall then proceed in descending order to the next highest numbered player position at which a winning wager is located and repeat this procedure until each winning wager is paid and the vigorish owed by each player, if any, is either marked or collected.
(c) At the conclusion of a round of play, the dealer shall remove all cards from the table and place the cards in the discard bucket.
