You find this game in some European casinos, the main difference is only house acts as a banker (the special casino worker- Croupier), but the target is still the same: to come as closer to 9 scores as you can.

In other versions the role of a banker usually act the player who has the most money or this role rotates from one player to another counterclockwise, which means every person sitting at the table can be a player and a banker in some period of time.

But if a casino is a banker, the sum of the bets can be much higher; furthermore there is no any minimum number of people for gambling, you can play even if you are alone, in contrast to Chemin De Fer which needs at least two players.
